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.*
"Dr. Desai has been amazing to work with. I appreciate her honesty and advice and she won’t try to upsell you unnecessarily like other places will! The staff is very friendly as well and I would highly recommend trying this med spa out!"- S.K. / Google / Nov 05, 2021
"Ok! So, I was referred here after explaining to my nail tech the lengthy process and billion steps I have taken to get my skin healthy (dermatologist, internal medicine for hormones, estheticians,, holistic Doctors). I was skeptical as previously stated I’ve tried everything... so here I go again making another appointment for a consultation (at this point I’m ready for an entire face transplant lol).I was immediately impressed with the relationship of Dr.Desai and Dr. Patel. Immediately they make you feel in the most professional way of just meeting up with a longtime friend. Super easy to let your guard down due to the genuine personalities of both Doctors. Very transparent with the procedures success rate, also non conventional treatments and the inclusion on different routes to take to accomplish the outcome desired. I have now visited 3 times. Although there has not been much change in my skin, this does not stop the Doctors confident approach. Switching up the different breaking edge technology they are not afraid to use everything the office has at their finger tips. I truly feel great and this Duo definitely delivers the wow factor! I will keep y’all posted in my journey, I feel confident Dr. Desai and Dr. Patel can figure out this face! lol"- A.P. / Yelp / Sep 30, 2021
"I went in for a little lip enhancement. I did not really know what to expect or what I really wanted just knew I wanted my upper lip bigger. The staff and Doctor went over everything and made me feel so comfortable and recommended what they felt would give me what I wanted. The injections were almost painless and the outcome was everything I wanted! Will definitely be back!"- J.G. / Google / Sep 30, 2021

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
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 Laser & Skin 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.
