About Sculptra

Loss of volume occurs naturally during the aging process, particularly in the middle of the face as the cheeks become flat and hollow. GLO Laser & Med Spa offers Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid-based dermal filler that allows for longer-lasting and deeper volume replacement in the apples of the cheeks. In addition to restoring the fullness of the cheeks, a Sculptra facial can decrease the appearance of shallow to deep lines and wrinkles, including the nasolabial folds (also known as smile or laugh lines) that start at the outside of the nose to the corners of the mouth. With its unique formula approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Sculptra helps to increase the natural production of collagen in your body so even if you stop treatments, your skin will still be healthier and stronger compared to before. Schedule an appointment at GLO Laser & Med Spa in Houston, TX to hear about the benefits of this injectable treatment.

Ideal Candidates

A Sculptra facial is ideal for patients who want to boost fullness in their cheeks without surgical implants. Some candidates may have naturally thin cheeks while others experience volume loss with age. Sculptra dermal filler can also be used to treat shallow to deep facial lines and wrinkles, such as the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and chin wrinkles. Since Sculptra helps boost the body's natural production of collagen, many patients will see a visible improvement in the appearance and overall health of their skin.

Procedure Technique

After your consultation to determine your custom treatment plan, you will receive your Sculptra injections in one of our minor procedure rooms. The injector may apply a numbing cream or local anesthetic before cleaning and marking the areas to be injected. Once you are ready, the filler will be injected in the deeper layers of the skin at the selected sites. For best results, we suggest a series of four Sculptra injections, each done at GLO Laser & Med Spa about three weeks apart.

What to Expect

After your treatment, you may have mild to moderate redness, swelling, tenderness, or bruising at the injection sites that should heal naturally in 3 – 5 days. To speed healing, you can apply cold packs to the treated areas. You should avoid UV exposure as much as possible after your injection and use sun protection. Most patients will see improvement right after their treatment with complete results developing after 3 – 5 months as the natural production of collagen strengthens the skin. When performed as a series of injections over the course of 3 – 4 months, your results can last up to two years.
