Sculptra® in Philadelphia, PA
Parentheses lines around the mouth are often one of the first signs of aging to appear on the face and can cause many people to feel self-conscious about smiling. Main Line Plastic Surgery, serving patients in Philadelphia, Bala Cynwyd, Bryn Mawr, and other nearby areas in Pennsylvania, offers Sculptra® to help reduce smile lines, allowing the skin to appear plumper, smoother, and younger.
What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is an injectable filler consisting primarily of poly-l-lactic acid. It has been used successfully by patients around the world since 1999 and was approved by the FDA in 2009. This filler is primarily used to target parentheses lines and other wrinkles around your mouth and lips. It works by stimulating collagen production in your own body and can provide results for up to two years.
Am I a Good Candidate for Sculptra®?
You may be a good candidate for Sculptra® if you are bothered by moderate-to-deep nasolabial folds or marionette lines, yet do not wish to undergo surgery or an ongoing series of dermal filler injections to maintain your results. You must also be committed to having a series of up to three injections if you want to achieve the maximum benefits possible.
Planning your Sculptra® Treatment
All you need to do is schedule an hour-long appointment in our office. No other preparation or downtime is needed. Most patients require two to three treatments to achieve the optimum results. If Dr. Jean determines that multiple sessions are needed, we will do our best to schedule each of your appointments at a time that is most convenient for you.
How is Sculptra® Performed?
Dr. Jean will inject the Sculptra® solution into the nasolabial folds on either side of your face using a very thin needle. This takes only a few minutes, after which time you are free to go home.
How Much Does Sculptra® Cost in Philadelphia?
Medical spa procedures such as Sculptra® are highly customized, meaning that a number of variables are used to calculate the price. In addition to payment through cash, personal check, and major credit/debit cards, we also accept CareCredit® financing. CareCredit® works like a credit card, offering low-interest rates and easily affordable payments to help you afford Sculptra® on your terms.
What to Expect* after Sculptra®
*Sculptra® provides very gradual results over the course of several months.* Since you are slowly and steadily erasing years off your look, others may notice that you look younger, yet not be able to deduce that you have had a procedure.
Recovering from Sculptra®
Virtually no recovery time is needed, you are free to go on about your day as usual once you leave our office. You may notice some light bruising, but this is nothing to worry about and should go away on its own within a couple of days.
