Sculptra Newport Beach
Sculptra is not a wrinkle filler – it’s a volumizer. It replaces the natural volume loss that occurs as we age. At The Ocean Clinic, we use Sculptra in Newport Beach 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.
-Sculptra® Aesthetic is an FDA approved synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which does not contain any human or animal components. It is absorbed naturally by the body and does not require allergy testing prior to treatment.
-Sculptra® Aesthetic stimulates the body to rebuild collagen gradually, resulting in a naturally youthful appearance.
-Sculptra® Aesthetic has been FDA approved since 2009 and used world wide since 1999.
-Poly-L-lactic acid has been used for several years in dissolvable stitches.
-Typically two to three treatment sessions over the course of six to twelve weeks is required, though this will vary depending on the degree of correction required.
-Noticeable results appear gradually over two to three months and can last up to two years.
-No downtime or recovery time is required after a Sculptra treatment. Patients can immediately return to their daily schedule.
-A wrapped cool gel or ice pack applied for a few minutes on and off to treated areas will help reduce swelling within the first 24 hours after treatment. Do not apply ice directly to skin.
-The rule of Fives: massage the treated areas for five minutes, five times a day, for five days after treatment.
-Avoid excessive sunlight after treatment and until any swelling or redness resolves.
-You may apply sunscreen and makeup several hours after treatment, as directed.
Redness, swelling, bruising or tenderness may occur after injections. Avoiding any blood thinners (Aspirin, Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, fish oil, alcohol) 1-2 weeks prior to treatment may help reduce the risk for these side effects.
The cost of Sculptra varies depending on the clinic you choose for your injections. Additionally, Sculptra price depends on the number of injections and treatment sessions required.
