Sculptra® Filler in Edina & Bloomington

Do you desire a more refreshed, youthful look? At Skin Rejuvenation Clinic in Minneapolis, Minnesota, we have an amazing solution-Sculptra! Sculptra “tightens” the face and can target fine lines around the mouth and chin and reduce deep creases around the mouth and nose (nasolabial folds). With this noninvasive bio-stimulating treatment our highly skilled practitioners will ensure you achieve optimal results and enhance your skin’s natural beauty.

Sculptra is an FDA-approved synthetic facial injectable made of synthetic poly-lactic acid, that helps your body to stimulate and gradually replace lost collagen, providing a foundation to restore fullness and fill in wrinkles around the mouth and nose.

It targets the underlying cause of aging, which is collagen deficiency, and works with your body within the deep dermis to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume.

Collagen is an amino acid naturally produced by the body, which makes the skin suppler, firmer, and more resilient. As collagen is stimulated, the skin begins to regain its fullness, diminishing wrinkles, and creases. Results are subtle yet noticeable and are achieved through a series of treatments.

Sculptra® or Dermal Fillers?

Sculptra works in a different way than hyaluronic acid fillers do; while Sculptra thickens the skin to make it more elastic, hyaluronic acid fillers attract moisture to the area that is being treated to create more volume. The immediate initial improvement is not as pronounced as would be experienced with a hyaluronic acid filler since the effect is more gradual with Sculptra.

How it Works

Step 1: Consultation

During your consultation, we will take the time to understand your concerns and respond to your inquiries. Our team of highly skilled practitioners will make sure that your needs are understood and achieved, with the goal of surpassing your desired expectations and enhancing your natural beauty.

Step 2: Treatment Planning

We will develop a program to fulfill your wishes regarding effectively improving those features you would like to be enhanced. We will then review and discuss the various solutions and offer advice based on our knowledge and expertise in delivering excellent aesthetic results.

Step 3: Treatment

We will initiate the treatment by using an antibacterial/antifungal face wash to make sure the region being treated is sterilized and free from bacteria. We may then use a topical anesthetic to numb the area, or alternatively, ice can be applied to add extra comfort. For the injections, we use cannulas whenever possible.

Cannulas are similar to needles but are rounded at the front to reduce discomfort, bruising, and swelling, and decrease the chances of developing an intravascular infection. Using cannulas requires special expertise, which we have, to achieve optimal results.

Step 4: Follow-up

Patients typically decide when to receive follow-up treatments based on which area is being treated.

Treatment Details

Paired Treatments

Treatments can be paired to achieve maximum outcomes. Sometimes pairing treatments can produce longer-lasting and dramatic results. Some treatments that can be paired are Botox/Dysport and Halo Laser, which smooths out skin triggering collagen and elastin to produce.

Moxi laser which revitalizes skin with no downtime and Forever Young BBL which uses BroadBand light by Sciton and provides photorejuvenation can also be pairing options.

Then there is Ultherapey proven to lift sagging skin by using ultrasound imagery to stimulate new collagen and elastin growth, and Indiba, which increases cellular metabolism and rebalances cells. Hydrafacial and MedicalGrade Skincare Products are also some of the varied options available to pair with Sculptra.

Post Care Instructions

    • Follow the 5x5x5 protocol. Massage the treated areas with firm pressure for five minutes, five times a day for five days. 
    • It is normal to have localized swelling and redness at injection site immediately after treatment. Swelling from Sculptra can last up to 3-4 days.  
    • With any injection there is always the possibility of bruising. Arnica cream can be applied after injections to help bruising heal faster.  
    • Avoid makeup for 24 hours after treatment.  
    • Avoid any strenuous activity (cardio, heavy lifting, yoga, etc.) for 24 hours after treatment.  
    • Avoid hot tubs and saunas for 24 hours after treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

When Will I See The Results Of The Procedure?

The procedure results will not be noticed immediately, as in hyaluronic acid fillers. As Sculptra encourages the body to make its own collagen, the results take some time to become apparent, and it can take up to 6 weeks.

When Can I Go Back To Work?

There is no downtime with Sculptra. Since Sculptra is a nonsurgical, noninvasive procedure, you can return to work the same day; right after treatment. You can also resume regular activities.

What Are The Potential Side Effects?

Sculptra treatment requires no downtime and the side effects are usually minimal. You may experience minor swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site, but these should quickly vanish. To acquire the greatest outcome, you should massage your face several times a day following your injection.

Is The Treatment Painful?

By utilizing our unique methods, most people feel comfortable or experience very minimal discomfort. Applying anesthetic to the area renders the procedure pain-free with little to no discomfort.

How Long Do Sculptra® Fillers Last?

In most cases, the effects of Sculptra fillers last as long as two years. It does usually take a few weeks to visually see full results since your body is continuing to produce collagen.

Can The Fillers Be Reversed?

We take pride in making sure that the best aesthetic results are achieved and that our patients are fully satisfied and informed. Sculptra cannot be reversed like fillers made from a hyaluronic acid can.

Can Different Fillers Be Used In The Same Location?

Different fillers are perfectly safe to use in the same location. This is sometimes recommended in order to achieve the best outcomes.

How much does it cost?

Price varies depending on the areas being treated and the number of injections and sessions required for optimal results.
