Sculptra in Lafayette, LA

The physicians and clinicians at Precise Spa at Plastic Surgery Associates of Lafayette use Sculptra® to treat patients in Lafayette, LA, who have lost the volume in their faces and want to restore a fuller and younger appearance to their faces.

What is Sculptra®

Sculptra® is made from poly-L-lactic acid, which can replace lost collagen in the facial area, leaving the skin with a refreshed appearance. Sculptra® treatment activates in the deep dermis region of the skin and works to replace lost collagen gradually. The new collagen will fill in wrinkles and lines, restoring a more youthful appearance.

Benefits of Scultpra®

  • Stimulates your body’s natural collagen production.
  • Reduces wrinkles and facial folds, and restores facial volume.
  • Provides up to 80 percent improvement in treated areas.

Sculptra® Procedure

During your initial consultation, your aesthetician or physician will evaluate your skin care goals and suggest a treatment plan that will maximize the results of Sculptra® injections. Typically, Sculptra® treatment is complete after a series of three injections over the course of a few months, but individual results will vary.

Sculptra® treatments take about 30 minutes. Your plastic surgeon applies a topical anesthetic to your skin to numb the area. A small gauge needle is used to inject Sculptra® into the treatment area, and ice packs are used to reduce swelling. Your physician may also massage the area to distribute Sculptra® under your skin.

Preparing for Sculptra®

To minimize possible bruising it is best to avoid any aspirin or aspirin containing products before your procedure.

Sculptra® Recovery

Most side effects associated with Sculptra® treatment are mild and resolve themselves shortly after treatment. They can include redness, irritation, swelling, and bruising at the injection site. Your physician or aesthetician will advise you to massage the treated area on a regular basis for approximately one week following treatment to minimize the risk of developing small lumps under the skin. If small lumps do develop, our physicians will formulate a treatment plan to address them.
