Sculptra Treatment in Charleston, SC

One of the primary causes of the most visible signs of aging is decreased collagen production. As your body produces less collagen, your skin loses volume, and the result is hollow areas, lines, wrinkles, and facial folds. At The Repaire Room, we offer a safe and effective cosmetic injectable called Sculptra that works by stimulating collagen production to naturally reverse the aging process so you can achieve a renewed and refreshed appearance.

What Is Sculptra®?

Sculptra is an anti-aging injectable also known as a biostimulator. It contains an active ingredient called poly-L-lactic acid that stimulates natural collagen production at the injection site. This active ingredient is suspended in a liquid formula similar to other dermal fillers, so it does deliver some instant plumping results, but these will fade, and the best results won’t be visible until your body responds to the treatment by increasing collagen production.

How Is It Different From Other Dermal Fillers?

Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers are designed to deliver instant results by injecting immediate volume below the skin’s surface. Even though these results are immediate, eventually, your body will process, metabolize, and eliminate all of the ingredients in the filler, and your results will wear off.

Sculptra is different from these HA injectables because it doesn’t use hyaluronic acid particles but instead contains an active ingredient that stimulates natural collagen production. As your body produces more collagen, you’ll notice improvements in your skin, and your results won’t fade in the months following treatment. Instead, they’ll progressively improve, and the results will be 100 percent natural, resulting from your own collagen, not synthetic fillers.

What Causes Collagen Loss?

In your late 20s and early 30s, your body decreases collagen production yearly by at least one percent. Over time, this decrease in youthful proteins begins to negatively affect your appearance, and you’ll start to notice the various signs of aging. Aside from aging, some other factors contribute to collagen loss, including excess sun exposure, sun damage, smoking, unhealthy lifestyle habits, alcohol consumption, and a poor diet.

The best way to fight back against collagen loss is by undergoing a treatment that can restore your body’s natural collagen supply to naturally reverse the aging process and help ensure long-lasting results. Collagen loss is normal, but that doesn’t mean that you have to accept how it has and will affect your face or body.

What Can It Treat?

Sculptra can treat the most common aesthetic and aging-related concerns, including flattening cheeks, marionette lines, and smile lines. We can also use it to treat different body areas.

The Non-Surgical BBL

We can use this injectable to perform a non-surgical BBL. The Sculptra BBL, also known as the Brazilian butt lift, is a non-surgical treatment that can enhance the products by adding volume to the area to improve the size and shape. Injections into some specific areas of the buttocks will encourage natural collagen production to subtly yet noticeably enhance the buttocks.

An Effective Cellulite Treatment

Not only can we use this injectable to perform a non-surgical BBL, but we can also use it as a cellulite treatment. By injecting the biostimulator into areas with cellulite, we can force the body to respond by increasing collagen production, improving skin texture and volume, and reducing the appearance of cellulite dimples.

FAQ About Treatment

There’s no social downtime after a treatment with this cosmetic injectable. We will provide detailed aftercare instructions so you know exactly how to care for the injection sites to ensure the best possible results. You may be asked to temporarily avoid certain medications, supplements, and activities to allow your body to heal and respond to the treatment process.

You may also need to massage the treatment area. It’s important that you avoid excess sun exposure and wear quality sunscreen after your treatment, avoid strenuous workouts for the first 24 hours, and environments that increase your blood pressure or your body temperature.

You’ll see some visible results within the first few weeks of your treatment. The best results are typically visible 12 weeks after your first injection. It can take the body up to 12 weeks to produce collagen at the treatment site, so while this process does require patience, it will all be worth it.

Patients who undergo Sculptra treatments can expect lasting results. Typically, results last two or more years based on the injection site and other factors. Once we meet with you to discuss your treatment goals and confirm your treatment eligibility, we can provide a more accurate estimation of how long you can expect your results to last.

Patients looking for a natural way to smooth lines and wrinkles, restore lost volume, fill hollow areas, enhance their buttocks, or treat cellulite make good candidates for Sculptra. Patients should be in good health, be willing to follow all the aftercare instructions, and not be allergic to any ingredients in this cosmetic injectable. A pre-treatment consultation will confirm your treatment eligibility.
