Sculptra is a unique facial filler that addresses the root cause of aging skin — the loss of collagen. This filler consists of a unique biocompatible component, known as poly-l-lactic acid, that can stimulate natural collagen production within the skin, thus reversing the signs of aging. Our treatments of Sculptra in Buffalo are carefully injected into targeted areas on the face and neck to fill out the fine lines and wrinkles, enhance facial volume, correct age-related mid-face loss of volume, and restore elasticity and firmness to your skin.

How it Works
Collagen is a fibrous protein that gives your skin its youthful and firm texture. It basically acts like glue for the skin, ensuring your skin remains firm and upright against the force of gravity. As you grow older, your body’s ability to produce collagen is compromised, leading to facial sagging, loss of volume from the cheeks, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As such, the loss of collagen is primarily responsible for the signs of aging on the face.
Sculptra is a unique collagen-inducing filler made of poly-l-lactic acid, a naturally occurring, biocompatible, and biodegradable gel. We use Sculptra in Buffalo because when injected into carefully targeted areas on the face, it enhances facial volume and fills out the fine lines and wrinkles while simultaneously encouraging natural collagen production. Over time, your body produces new collagen fibers to reverse the signs of aging, and the results continue improving even after the poly-l-lactic acid molecules have been metabolized.

Your Sculptra Journey
Your cosmetic provider will examine your facial skin, mark the treatment areas on strategic parts of your face, and apply a numbing gel to ensure comfort. The appropriate units of Sculptra are carefully injected into the targeted treatment areas using ultrafine needles — the number of injections depends on your unique goals.
When you see us for a treatment of Sculptra in Buffalo, it won’t involve any downtime. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately, but you should avoid strenuous workouts for a day or two. The side effects, such as redness, swelling, bruising, and irritation, are minimal and temporary, lasting no more than a few days.
Sculptra may provide minor enhancements immediately after the treatment, but the results gradually improve over several weeks and months. That’s because Sculptra encourages natural collagen production within your body. Most patients need 2 to 3 sessions spaced a few months apart for optimal results. The final results last for up to 2 months.
