Sculptra® Filler Near Minneapolis 

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.

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.

Treatment Details

What it Treats

Sculptra injections can be applied to a variety of locations on the face, including marionette lines, wrinkles around the chin, and laugh lines. It is also utilized to refine the jawline and bring back volume to sunken cheeks or temples. This treatment is meant to fill out hollow areas of the face and diminish wrinkles. However, it is not suggested to use Sculptra underneath the eyes or on the lips. 

Benefits

Sculptra is an injectable dermal facial filler that works to give your face a softer, more youthful, and natural look. It reduces wrinkles, lines, and furrows around the lips, eyes, mouth, neck, cheeks, and chin.

When injected, it works to stimulate your own collagen production, filling in any indentations, folds, or wrinkles in the skin and giving you possibly as much as 80% improvement in the target area.

Furthermore, you don’t need to take time off from your everyday activities and the changes to your appearance will be subtle and gradual, so no one will be aware that you had a procedure done. 

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. 

What to expect before Sculptra®

Avoid the use of Aspirin, NSAIDS, Ginko Biloba, Garlic supplements, Green Tea, Flax Oil, Cod Liver Oil, Vitamins A and E, and essential fatty acids for up to 1 week before treatment as they will increase your risk of bruising. You may take Arnica 2-3 days before treatment to reduce bruising. 

What to expect during Sculptra®

The procedure involves tiny injections that feel similar to a little pinch and requires approximately 15 to 20 minutes to complete. (We have a few choices to lessen the discomfort if needed). 

What to expect after Sculptra®

Following the Sculptra injections, you can go back to your regular routine. It is recommended to apply ice to the area after treatment and to massage the area several times a day for a few days after the procedure.

If desired, you may apply makeup immediately after treatment. It will take a few weeks for visible results to appear and you may experience some bruising, soreness, or swelling in the treated area.

I saw Dr. Beth for lip injections and am very happy with the results — she is a pro. Can’t wait to go back for more!

– Lindsay D.

I have been extremely satisfied with my experience at Skin Rejuvenation Clinic over the last 2 years.

Dr. Beth is SO unique in that she recommends using just enough products/services to look like a younger version of who you already are, and doesn't try to push products/services at all. She has a very natural look, and I trust that she has given me that as well. She uses her artistic talent, as opposed to using a medicinal, or mechanical, approach.
