FEELING FRUSTRATED WITH DIMPLED THIGHS?

Reduce cellulite by restoring volume to the treatment area, filling in dimples, and disrupting the tight collagen fibers under the skin.Almost everyone knows what cellulite looks like – dimpled, and uneven skin usually on your butt and thighs. Cellulite can affect any woman, no matter their weight, or fat percentage, and no amount of squats or strict dieting will ever get rid of it completely. Cellulite injections can help you achieve a slimmer and more contoured body shape. You may be a good candidate for a cellulite treatment if you have areas on your waist, tummy, hips, bum, thighs, legs, upper arms, or under the chin.

When Sculptra is injected, it works by stimulating the production of fresh, new collagen to replenish lost volume (due to aging and other factors) beneath the skin. As it does in the treatment of wrinkles, Sculptra works the same for cellulite. The new collagen fills up the dimpled, depressions and smooths out the skin to achieve the similar volume of the surrounding skin tissue. Sculptra injections are an effective and minimally invasive treatment option for cellulite on the thighs, arms, buttocks, or anywhere you would like to smooth away dimples. Sculptra works to diminish the appearance of cellulite by encouraging new collagen production to fill in the gaps in connective tissue that cause cellulite.

Sculptra CelluliteMost Common Questions

Sculptra is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that reduces wrinkles and facial lines while creating a fuller, more youthful appearance to your face. This FDA-approved facial and body injectable, also known as the “liquid facelift,” works deep within the dermis. It fills in lines and wrinkles, and stimulates your body to produce new collagen and underlying tissue, which gradually restores the fullness and smooth texture to areas of the face most affected by aging.

The number of vials you need to achieve your aesthetic goals with this treatment is directly related to the number of treatments you will require. Generally speaking, the number of treatments and vials you need will be determined by your age. For example, women in their 30s or 40s will only require 3 or 4 vials, while women in their 50s and 60s will require 5 or 6 vials in total. The number of vials you need will dictate how many treatment sessions you will need to attend. There is a strict limitation of only using 2 vials per treatment session, which means younger women may only need 2 sessions and mature women may need 3 or 4.

Sculptra results are very long-lasting, but not permanent. Collagen loss is an unfortunate part of the aging process, and your body will continue to lose collagen over time. While the gradual onset of this treatment may take some time, the longevity of the results is quite unlike any other dermal filler available to patients. Most patients can expect results to last for 2 to 3 years at a time, which is almost twice as long as the leading dermal filler treatment. An annual maintenance treatment will help prolong the youthful results further.

Sculptra gradually replaces lost collagen – for a youthful, natural look. Sculptra:

  • Helps correct skin depressions, such as skin creases, wrinkles, folds and scars, to combat skin aging.
  • Is suitable for large volume corrections of the signs of facial fat loss (lipoatrophy).
  • Treatment effects differ from person to person. Touch-ups may be needed to maintain the desired effect. Your doctor will discuss the right treatment plan based on your needs.

Yes. There are some cosmetic treatments, such as laser skin resurfacing treatments, that are not appropriate when used on medium or dark complexions due to the increased risk of pigmentation side effects. This filler has no such restrictions and is considered safe for all skin types and skin tones.

Unlike invasive cosmetic procedures, there is no downtime associated with this treatment. You are free to resume your usual daily routine with just a few exceptions. You cannot apply any cosmetics to your face, including makeup and moisturizer, for three hours after your injections.

Sculptra makes itself stand out from the crowd of dermal filler by the sheer fact that it can be used on multiple areas of the face. One of the major drawbacks of other fillers is that the treatments can only be used on specific areas of the face, such as only the cheeks or only around the eyes. This revolutionary dermal filler stands in defiance of that pattern with its ability to be used on virtually every area of the face. In practical terms, what this means for you and your beauty goals is that this is one filler that can accomplish the majority of your anti-aging concerns at one time, which may mean you no longer have to combine treatments to achieve your ideal aesthetic. You can think of this filler as your all-in-one solution for all of your anti-aging woes.

After your Sculptra treatment, you’ll notice your skin’s elasticity gradually improving as it reaches a more youthful texture. You may see some improvements within the first week of treatment; however, optimal, long-lasting effects will not develop until an average of three sessions spaced four to six weeks apart. The improvement will continue for four to six months, at which point your results should reach their peak. Because the results occur throughout a gradual timeframe, you won’t experience a sudden, unnatural appearance that may be associated with surgical treatments.

Yes, Sculptra was approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in 2004.

Patients who would like to enjoy the long-lasting benefits of a treatment that will reduce fine lines and wrinkles, as well as restore youthful volume to the skin, are likely good candidates for this treatment. Good candidates include those who want to:

  • Correct skin laxity
  • Plump the skin
  • Soften facial bones
  • Fill hollows of cheeks
  • Diminish nasolabila lines
  • Erase expression lines
  • Reduce chin wrinkles

Since this injectable is hypoallergenic, the FDA approved it in 2009 for people with severe facial folds and healthy immune systems. However, as with any other cosmetic treatment, this injectable is not right for everyone. Let us know during your initial consultation if you are pregnant or trying to become pregnant or may be pregnant. This injectable is not FDA-approved for women who are pregnant or nursing. It is also not recommended for anyone with certain heart conditions or a medical history including regular cold sores.

You can have this treatment during any time of the year without any risk of negative side effects, but if you are having this treatment to prepare for a special life event, then your timing will be key. Because it takes time for the results of this filler to become evident, it’s best if you plan to have your treatment appointments at least 6 months before your life event.

To help ensure safe use and obtain optimal results, it is important that you comply with the aftercare instructions provided by your doctor. Here are 4 simple things to do after each session:

  • Apply an ice pack (wrapped in a clean cloth) to the treated area every once in a while after treatment to minimize swelling and/or bruising. Avoid direct contact of the ice with the skin.
  • Thoroughly massage the treated area in a circular fashion for 5 minutes, 5x/day for 5 days after each treatment. This helps to evenly distribute Sculptra and promote a natural-looking correction.
  • Minimize exposure of the treated area to excessive sun and avoid ultraviolet lamp exposure until any initial swelling and redness have disappeared.
  • If you have laser treatment, chemical peeling or any other skin procedure based on active dermal response after treatment, there is a possible risk of eliciting an inflammatory reaction at the implant site. This also applies if Sculptra is administered before the skin has healed completely after these procedures
