Sculptra in Rochester, NY
What is Sculptra® in Rochester?
Sculptra® contains a special synthetic material known as poly L lactic acid, or PLLA. For more than 10 years, the medical community has relied on PLLA-based dissolvable sutures to help support the healing process after surgery. Based on the proven effects of PLLA, Sculptra® was developed to provide a unique treatment that corrects problems that are caused by fat loss under the skin, including sagging, drooping, hollow areas under the eyes, and a “too thin” appearance. Replenishing the skin’s volume also affects the way light falls on the face, giving a more youthful and beautiful appearance.
How does Sculptra® work in Rochester?
Sculptra® uses the powerful benefits of PLLA to build a structure under the skin and to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. Full results develop over the course of three months as the collagen adds volume to the skin. Typically, the results from Sculptra® treatments last up to two years and Sculptra® is safe enough to have repeat treatments for longer-lasting results.
Sculptra® is an effective treatment for several areas of the face, including the temples, cheeks, chin, along the jaw line, and under the eyes. It may be recommended to use Sculptra® treatments in conjunction with other surgical and non-surgical treatments to provide optimum improvement. Sculptra® is injected into the deep dermis of the skin. The number and locations of the injections are based upon the extent of correction.
PLLA, the main ingredient in Sculptra®, has been used in medical applications for more than 10 years. PLLA has been proven safe and is easily absorbed by the body. Side effects are rare with Sculptra® treatments, but the most common side effects are limited to the injection sites and include mild swelling and bruising and small lumps. Swelling and bruising typically resolve within three days, and the small lumps slowly disappear over the course of a few weeks or months.
