Baton Rouge plastic surgeon Dr. Erick Sanchez has invested heavily in the latest advanced non-surgical treatments. The surgeon aims to give patients who are averse to surgery a reasonable and effective alternative to achieving their aesthetic goals without having to be worried about incisions, huge costs, and/or downtime.
What is Sculptra
Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable compound that Dr. Sanchez and other plastic surgeons commonly use to restore facial fat lost because of aging. This synthetic material is created from Poly-L-lactic acid, which is slowly and naturally absorbed by the body to help replace lost collagen. Doctors have safely used Poly-L-lactic acid for decades in dissolvable stitches.
Am I a good candidate for Sculptra Aesthetic?
Sculptra injections work by replacing lost collagen to address skin imperfections such as wrinkles and folds. You may be an ideal candidate for this non-invasive cosmetic treatment if:
- You are looking to address mild to moderate skin imperfections
- You are unhappy with the appearance of wrinkles and smile lines
- You wish to restore volume to areas of the face, and address skin laxity
- You are looking to contour your cheeks
- You want long-lasting results
Sculptra is not appropriate for use in areas around the lips and eyes. Sculptra may not be the ideal treatment for you if you’re looking for immediate results. For patients who desire quick results, Dr. Sanchez may recommend alternative treatments such as Dysport, BOTOX, Juvederm, Radiesse, and Restylane.
Benefits of Sculptra
Sculptra cosmetic injections offer several benefits, including the following:
- Gradual results
- Youthful and natural appearance
- Can alleviate marionette lines and chin wrinkles
- Minimal recovery time
- Works on different skin types with no allergy testing required
What to expect after Sculptra treatment?
Because Sculptra works by stimulating collagen in the skin, results take time. Patients can expect to wait for a few months before they can notice the full impact of this cosmetic injectable. The good thing is that once the treatment has been administered, the skin continues to improve gradually; these changes are usually long-lasting. Patients who receive this treatment can expect to experience some swelling, redness, and bruising a few days after the injection.
