Sculptra Newport Beach
Sculptra is not a wrinkle filler – it’s a volumizer. It replaces the natural volume loss that occurs as we age. Sculptra is used to create a soft, natural, more youthful recontouring of the face. It is best for adding volume to:
- Hollow cheeks
- Hollow temples
- Boney cheeks
- Nasolabial folds and marionette lines
- Defining the jawline
Sculptra is a gradual anti-aging treatment that can last up to two years. Sculptra requires multiple sessions done over a 12 week period. Sculptra is designed to stimulate your body’s own collagen, which takes about 3 months to see the results, but then lasts up to 25 months. In the first session, 1-2 vials of Sculptra will be injected into the temples, cheeks and jawline. In the second session, 6 weeks later, another 1-2 vials will be used. Then, in another 6 weeks, your doctor will determine if 1 to 2 more vials are necessary to fulfill your desired results.
