Sculptra


Sculptra, approved by the FDA, is used to restore signs of facial fat loss that result in conditions such as sunken cheeks, surface irregularities, or depressions in the skin. Sculptra is a safe, synthetic, biocompatible, and biodegradable material that is injected underneath the surface of patients' skin thereby providing a significant increase in skin thickness and improving the appearance of skin creases, folds, wrinkles and depressions. Patients who enjoy the benefits offered by Sculptra believe that it gives them a more youthful and natural facial appearance.


Following treatment

After a treatment session with Sculptra, patients often experience mild redness and swelling in the treatment area. Typically, these signs go away within the first few hours following treatment. Dr. Golshani provides patients with specific post-treatment care instructions. For example, patients are encouraged to massage the treated area for several days after the treatment session. Within the first 24 hours after treatment, patients are also asked to apply an ice pack for a few minutes at a time to the treatment area to help reduce swelling. With respect to resuming their normal activities, patients typically do so almost immediately after their treatment session.


Results

The results of Sculptra appear gradually and over time. Although the effects of Sculptra aren't immediate and demonstrate skin thickness gradually, they are long lasting and enduring. Although results may vary, most of Dr. Golshani's patients have had treatment results lasting close to two years after the first treatment sessions. Touch-ups by your cosmetic surgeon are often a preferred choice for patients who wish to maintain the desired effects.
