What is Sculptra?
Volume loss occurs naturally during the aging process, especially in the mid-face, as the cheeks tend to become hollow and flat. Medical director Dr. Shahzad Anwar uses Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid-based injectable dermal filler that allows for deeper and longer-lasting volume replacement in the cheeks. In addition to improving the volume of the cheeks, Sculptra can decrease the look of shallow to deep wrinkles and lines, like the nasolabial folds (also called laugh or smile lines) that start at the edges of the nose down to the outer corners of the lips. With a unique gel formula approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Sculptra increases the natural production of collagen in your body so even after you stop treatments, your complexion will still be healthier than before the treatment.

Am I A Candidate for Sculptra?
Sculptra offers an excellent solution for individuals looking to enhance cheek contours without resorting to surgical implants. It's suitable for candidates with naturally thin cheeks as well as those experiencing age-related volume loss. In addition to addressing these concerns, Sculptra dermal filler effectively targets a range of facial wrinkles and lines, including nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and chin wrinkles. By stimulating the body's natural collagen production, Sculptra often leads to noticeable improvements in skin health and overall appearance for many patients.
How Do Sculptra Injections Work?
Following your consultation to develop your custom treatment plan, you can receive your injections in one of our private procedure rooms. Your injector may apply numbing cream or local anesthetic before cleaning and marking the injection sites. As soon as you are ready, Sculptra will be injected into the deeper skin layers at the chosen areas. For longer-lasting results, Dr. Anwar suggests a series of four Sculptra treatments, each done at Modern Aesthetics about three weeks apart.
What to Expect After Sculptra
After your treatment, you may experience mild or moderate swelling, redness, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site that should resolve naturally in a few days. To speed healing, you can apply cold packs to the treated areas. You should avoid UV exposure as much as possible after your injection and use sunscreen. Most patients will notice visible improvements immediately after their treatment, with complete results developing after a few months, when the increased collagen production strengthens the skin. When Sculptra is performed in a series over the course of 3 – 4 months, results can be visible for up to two years.
