Sculptra® is a cosmetic facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid that helps to replace lost collagen. This treatment corrects shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds, as well as helping to plump up hollow areas in the cheeks and temples.
Sculptra Technique and Treatment at Skincare Aesthetics of Baton Rouge
Sculptra injections take approximately 30 minutes. Before your treatment begins, we will cleanse your skin.
At Skincare Aesthetics of Baton Rouge, we often use a cannula (a blunt-tipped, hollow tube) instead of a needle for Sculptra because it provides us enhanced precision and control, as well as reduced complications, tissue trauma, swelling, and bruising. It also minimizes discomfort and downtime. Skincare Aesthetics of Baton Rouge is one of the few clinics in the area that offers the use of a cannula for multiple injection areas.
Before your treatment, our goal is to listen carefully to you and discuss a treatment plan that is individualized for you specifically. This means that the dosage and the locations for your injections are personalized to your needs.
You will feel a little pinch as the cannula punctures your skin, but it’s very tolerable — especially with the cannula. A topical anesthetic is available if you prefer.
Although the number of injection sessions varies from person to person, on average three injection sessions over a period of a few months are needed for Sculptra.
