What is Sculptra Aesthetic?

Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen — an underlying cause of facial aging — for results that can last more than two years.*

What are the benefits of Sculptra?

Wrinkles and fine lines are a source of insecurity for many people. Sculptra can give you back the collagen that time has taken away, resulting in a more youthful look. Renew Wellness Center is proud to offer Sculptra for the following reasons:

  • Safe: Sculptra is made with biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that is slowly and naturally absorbed by the body.
  • Nonsurgical: Sculptra is a nonsurgical cosmetic injectable, which means there is no downtime or general anesthesia required.
  • Customizable: We tailor our Sculptra treatments to your specific goals and areas of concern.
  • Long-lasting: The results of Sculptra can last up to two years or even longer with proper maintenance.

How It Works

Sculptra Aesthetic is made with biocompatible, biodegradable,synthetic material called poly-L lactic acid,

which is graduallyand naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments administered by a trained specialist.

The specialist injects treatment within the deep dermis, where strands of collagen support your skin’s structure. Over time, Sculptra Aesthetic helps the body reproduce lostcollagen. On average, three injection appointments are

needed over a period of a few months. The number of injection appointments and the number of injections per appointment vary from person to person, depending on how much collagen has been lost.

What to expect at your appointment

One of our Physicians administers Sculptra Aesthetic in a series of injection sessions. On average, three treatment sessions are needed over a few months, but your doctor will tailor the sessions to suit your desired outcome.

As with any injection, some pain is possible, but your physician may use a topical anesthetic to ease any

discomfort. You should not receive treatment if you have an active skin infection or skin inflammation near the planned injection site. Immediately after each treatment session, you may experience swelling. Swelling usually subsides within a few days, and the wrinkles will temporarily reappear as the gradual process of collagen replacement continues. You may begin to see progressive, visible results within the first few weeks after each treatment session.

What to expect after treatment

In the days following your treatments, keep a few things in mind for swift healing and optimum results.

1. Cold pack - A cold pack or ice pack will help reduce any common swelling. Within the first 24 hours of treatment, apply a cloth-wrapped cold pack to the treated area for a few minutes at a time. Never apply ice directly to the skin.

2. Facial massage - Massage the treated area for five minutes five times a day for five days after treatment, as recommended by your physician.

3. Avoid sunlight - After treatment, excessive sunlight and UV lamp exposure should be avoided until any initial swelling and redness go away. Your doctor will provide guidelines on sunscreen protection and how to avoid excessive sunlight.

Remember, you won’t see dramatic improvement immediately after treatment. Sculptra Aesthetic works subtly, improving facial areas gradually without making it look like you’ve had work done. To achieve full results,

be sure to keep any follow-up appointments in your treatment series.

Before & Afters

Sculptra FAQs

Is Sculptra safe?

Sculptra is considered safe when administered by an experienced and qualified professional. It's a very popular cosmetic treatment because it contains the same collagen-building material your body already produces naturally. Renew Wellness Center can review your medical history to see if you are a candidate and whether this is a good investment for your skin.

What is the best age to get Sculptra?

Many patients in their 30s and 40s like to start treatment with Sculptra. However, it's never too late or too early to add volume and definition to your face. Sculptra can be used to correct or restore facial volume and prevent future signs of age from occurring. Our aesthetic team can create a personalized plan for addressing your specific needs and concerns.

Are the results of Sculptra permanent?

The collagen-building material is meant to last about two years, but the effects of Sculptra are not permanent and will gradually wear off over time. You can then choose to return for additional Sculptra injections in Sugar Land, TX, or opt for alternative types of cosmetic treatments. We're happy to provide guidance to ensure your best outcomes.
