Sculptra® is a simple, non-surgical procedure that improves the appearance of aging skin folds, indented chin surfaces, hollowed cheeks and temples. Sculptra® is a unique filler that consists of Poly-L-lactic acid material, which our muscles naturally produce when we exercise. Once Sculptra® is injected and swelling diminishes, it induces gradual thickening of the skin. Sculptra® is biocompatible, so the body is able to dissolve it.
Dr. El-Salaway identifies the injection points for each treatment area and determines the correct amount of Sculptra® for the procedure. He then injects Sculptra® beneath the skin, under the dermis and subcutis layer. Initially, most patients undergo multiple treatments several weeks apart.
Results last up to two years, so touch-up treatments may be required to achieve optimal results, but with patience the effects are long-lasting. Dr. Sherif El-Salaway often combines Sculptra® treatments with other fillers, such as JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, JUVÉDERM® XC and Restylane® Silk, to achieve long-term results.
