Wrinkles and creases around your mouth can add years to your appearance, and that’s something no one wants. Fortunately, you can say “goodbye” to these unsightly signs of aging in as little as one treatment with Sculptra.
We feature the most advanced anti-aging treatments, including Sculptra in Los Angeles at Marina MedSpa. Our non- and minimally-invasive cosmetic options are safe and effective alternatives to plastic surgery procedures like facelift surgery. We have the experience you need to get the quality care you deserve and to look and feel your best.
Sculptra is an FDA-approved dermal filler that stimulates your body’s natural ability to produce smooth, healthy skin. It is common for the collagen production in your skin to diminish over time.
This effect of aging decreases your skin’s elasticity and resilience, meaning lines that show up when you express yourself — smiling, laughing, frowning — start to be visible even when your face is at rest. Sculptra undoes this damage through the use of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). This compound works with your body to heighten collagen production and allow it to work better and longer. This process results in skin that’s firmer and smoother, giving you the healthier, younger look you want.
Treatments with Sculptra help reduce or eliminate facial signs of aging, especially in the lower face. It has been proven effective in dealing with:
Candidates for Sculptra treatments should be in overall good health and have no active diseases, infections, or conditions (including pregnancy). Be sure to inform your aesthetic provider if you have a history of severe allergies or are taking any medications or supplements that may impair your normal immune response. When you come in for a consultation at Marina MedSpa, we’ll carefully evaluate your condition and help you determine if Sculptra is right for you.
The process for applying Sculptra is a minimally invasive procedure and can usually be completed in less than an hour. The first step in the treatment is for your cosmetic care specialist to clean and prepare your skin. In some cases, a mild topical or local anesthetic may be used. They will then perform a series of injections following a grid pattern to sufficiently treat the targeted area.
Your personalized treatment plan will determine the actual number of injections needed. A typical plan recommends three treatment sessions spaced out over a few months. Following the treatment, you may experience some swelling, tenderness, discoloration, and discomfort. However, these tend to be very mild and resolve themselves within 48 hours. Most of our Los Angeles sculptra patients are able to return to their normal routines by the next day, although care should be taken to protect the treated area from stress and exposure to heat and sunlight.
Because Sculptra works with your body to produce more collagen and healthy skin, results can take time to appear. Following your last treatment, you should begin to see smoother, firmer skin within a month.
But you may not realize your full results for up to three months. However, your final results can last as long as two years. Keep in mind that results will vary from person to person. Results and their duration are significantly impacted by each patient’s unique physiology, lifestyle, and skincare routine.
