Sculptra at Skin Clinic ND

Sculptra Collagen is a natural substance that gives skin, muscles, bones, and connective tissue their shape, support, and strength. In our 30s, our skin loses collagen, making it lose volume, get wrinkles, and look less healthy. 

The FDA has approved Sculptra as an injectable that helps the body make more collagen. This causes wrinkles, fine lines, and folds to look less noticeable. Most people need three to three and a half treatments spaced four to six weeks apart to get the best results. 

The temples, the middle of the face, and the lower face are often treated. Most of Sculptra is made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). As a collagen stimulator, it can give results that last and look natural. The effects of Sculptra can last anywhere from two to three years and make a face look younger overall.

Does Sculptra Tighten The Skin?

Sculptra does not tighten the skin as well as surgery, but it can add volume to the skin to fill in wrinkles and folds in a way that looks natural. The result is skin that is firmer and looks younger.

Sculptra Candidates

People with wrinkles and sagging skin on their faces are the best candidates for Sculptra. Our doctors can tell you during a consultation if Sculptra is the best way to reach your goals. If you show many signs of aging, you may be a better candidate for surgery. 

You will also discuss your medical history and your goals for Sculptra treatment. This is to make sure that the treatment is safe and effective.

So, What Happens When You Get Sculptra?

Sculptra can be given right here in our high-tech office. We can give you a topical numbing cream because everyone can handle pain differently. Once you are relaxed, the product is carefully injected under your skin in places where you are showing signs of getting older. 

It would help if you gave yourself several injections in a grid pattern to ensure the product is spread evenly and can make collagen in the right places. Overall, this can work in less than 30 minutes, and then you can go home.

How Can It Help You?

You can use this to:

  • Cut down on medium and fine lines
  • Get rid of wrinkles
  • Eliminate nasolabial folds
  • Cut down on the look of cellulite
  • Fill in sunken cheeks
  • Enhance lip volume
  • Remove lines from the forehead caused by frowning and lessen lines around the eyes and mouth.
  • Eliminate marionette lines
  • Relieve general skin laxity

We can also fix loose and sagging skin caused by weight loss with dermal filler. You can think of the treatment as an alternative to a facelift or neck lift that doesn’t involve surgery. 

The injectable filler can make the chin stand out more and fill out hollow cheeks and temples. A lip spa treatment can even make the lips look fuller and better.

Where Does Sculptra Work Best?

Most patients use Sculptra to fix signs of aging on their faces, but the treatment can help almost every body part differently. You can also fill in sunken and hollow areas on your face and body and make cellulite less noticeable.

Again, this treatment can tighten and refresh loose skin on the buttocks after weight loss. It gives the same results as a Brazilian butt lift without any surgery. 

After a few dermal filler sessions, you can eliminate loose skin on your stomach, chest, legs, and upper arms.

How Long Do Effects Last?

This dermal filler treatment is an injectable anti-aging treatment that lasts the longest. It gives you smooth, young-looking skin for at least 24 months when you notice that the results of your treatment aren’t as good as they used to be.

You can come back to our office for a quick maintenance session. Patients who take good care of their skin and stay out of the sun for long periods have the best and longest-lasting results.

How Many Sessions Will You Need?

You can talk to us about your goal to get a good idea of how many sessions you should expect. Most patients will need three to four sessions, at least four weeks between each, to get the look they want. Each session lasts about 20 to 30 minutes, and you don’t need to take any time off between sessions.

Is The Treatment Safe?

It is essential to find a trained doctor with a lot of experience to ensure you are safe and get the best results from your dermal filler treatment. Jill has always been interested in how people look. She had always wanted to own her medical aesthetics practice, and now that dream has come true! 

She has worked at medspas and as a plastic surgeon, where she helped patients with medically-aesthetic treatments. She knew when she moved back to North Dakota that it was the right time to open The Skin Clinic because of what she had learned in the past.

She has undergone many training sessions to get better at being an injector. She is proud that the injections she gives her patients are safe and high-quality. Her goal for her clients is to provide them with customized treatments that bring out their natural beauty and make them feel their best.

Our Sculptra treatment for both the face and the body is safe. It is made with poly-L lactic acid and used safely in dissolvable sutures. A numbing agent in the solution means that the injection is not painful and won’t cause long-term pain. 

The treatment is an excellent alternative to more invasive surgeries that lift and refresh the skin for most healthy people. As we keep on saying, after the treatment, you can go back to what you did before. 

Final Results

Redness and minor swelling are typical days after treatment, but they usually go away quickly. Any bruises can last for about a week, but they are easy to hide with makeup. 

You’ll notice a slight change after your injection session, but the full effects won’t show up for a few months as Sculptra makes new collagen for a refreshed and younger look. 

Because of this unique process, the effects of Sculptra can last from one to two years. After that, you can go back for more treatment.
