Following a Sculptra treatment with Dr. Esmailian, individuals enjoy a softer, more youthful looking appearance. Furthermore, as time passes and the Sculptra gradually disappears from the face, the body’s own collagen production increases causes in an increase in skin thickness.

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is an injectable filler that gradually restores lost facial volume by dramatically stimulating collagen. Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic acid, a substance which is naturally produced by the body. It can be used to smooths facial creases and provide significant volume to hollow cheeks and other areas, lasting for two years. Unlike other fillers, it is not a gel, but instead is a collagen stimulant that triggers the body’s natural ability to restore facial volume.

A Sculptra Procedure With Dr. Esmailian In Orange County

  • Dr. Esmailian determines his injection points and marks these areas on the face.
  • Generally, approximately 45 minutes before a treatment, a numbing cream is applied to the areas of the face that are being treated with Sculptra. There is very little discomfort during the treatment because the Sculptra itself is mixed with lidocaine. Lidocaine is a local anesthetic. Most people have had lidocaine before because dental professionals frequently use it as a numbing agent.
  • Using a very fine needle, Dr. Esmailian injects the Sculptra directly beneath the skin in the areas of the face previously marked.
  • Immediately following a procedure, the treated regions undergo a gentle massage. The purpose of this is to guarantee a uniform spread of the fluid within the treated areas. Additionally, this massage aids in the prevention of any lumps or irregularities from developing beneath the skin.

Following Sculptra in Orange County, there is very little, if any, downtime. The majority of individuals return to their normal activities directly after their procedure with Dr. Esmailian.

What to Expect

Individuals may experience some redness and/or inflammation at the injection sites; however, these side effects will fade quickly. A cold compress or an ice pack wrapped in a towel may be applied to these areas for 20 minutes at a time. Bare ice should never be applied to the skin.

Treatment Results

Immediately following injections, the area of the face that was treated will appear filled out. This is due to the sterile water that is used to suspend the Sculptra microparticles prior to injection. After a few days, this fullness will recede.

Sculptra’s true lasting effects take weeks and sometimes months to appear. While the effects do not manifest themselves immediately, they can last as long as two years; whereas, the results attained through other skin injectables may only last for a few months.
