According to research, lovelies, you lose 1% of collagen every year after the age of 18. When enough years have passed and the signs of aging are starting to show up, especially in your cheeks, you might consider cosmetic treatment options. At Skin by Lovely, we understand your desire to maintain a young, fresh appearance. For many people, Sculptra Aesthetic is the answer. Sculptra is an injectable cosmetic filler which works to rejuvenate facial volume which slowly decreases with age.

Sculptra Aesthetic Gradually Rebuilds Collagen
Most injectable fillers use hyaluronic acid to replenish volume lost due to aging. Sculptra Aesthetic is different. Sculptra, made from poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), is a subtle cosmetic treatment which stimulates your body’s natural production of collagen in your cheeks, helping your skin restore its interior structure to increase the facial volume that age tends to rob away. Several appointments are generally necessary, but the end result is a rejuvenated appearance you can enjoy for years.
Cheek Enhancement and Facial Rejuvenation
Sculptra Aesthetic is intended to provide full-face rejuvenation. The new collagen growth gradually ages you in reverse. Paging Benjamin Button!
As new collagen grows, your cheeks will appear fuller, gently lifting and tightening the skin in the process. This can pull back and smooth lines and folds in other areas of the face, such as around the nose and mouth.
Jawline Lifting and Tightening
As the collagen grows and fills out your face, your skin becomes tighter and lifted. This can lift and smooth a sagging jawline for a more contoured look. To round out your new look, you may consider Kybella to reduce fat in the jowls and/or double chin. A little BOTOX in the masseter muscle to tighten the jaw and slim the face may also be recommended.
Combine Sculptra Aesthetic With Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
To enhance the results of your Sculptra Aesthetic treatment, consider adding Juvederm or Restylane. A hyaluronic acid filler is able to maximize your results by filling out the newly formed collagen pockets. Using different treatments together can give you a younger, fresher appearance with natural-looking, subtle results.

Your Sculptra Consultation
To prepare you for your treatment, you’ll first meet with your Aesthetic Injection Specialist for consultation. While it may be brief, it gives your specialist time to review your medical history as well as conduct an examination. They’ll also be able to answer any questions you may have, go over the treatment process, and recommend the best options. A treatment plan will also be developed jointly with your goals in mind so you may achieve your desired look.
Your Sculptra Treatment
As you sit comfortably in one of our relaxing treatment rooms, your Aesthetic Injection Specialist will prepare your areas of concern with a gentle cleanse and application of ice. A topical or local anesthetic may be requested also, although Sculptra contains lidocaine to maximize your comfort. This dermal filler is then administered with a small needle or cannula to optimize treatment and reduce side effects such as swelling, bruising, and redness. These side effects are generally common and mild, and resolve themselves within a few days.
Downtime, Results, and Follow-Up Appointments
You should experience little downtime following your Sculptra injection. The results may not be noticeable immediately but don’t be discouraged, this treatment requires time. Over the next few months, the appearance and texture of your skin will improve, and you’ll look younger and fresher at a steady rate, with full results lasting upwards of two years. Sculptra Aesthetic is a then a good option as the results are gradual, so you won’t look like you had something done; you’ll look subtly rejuvenated.
Sculptra often requires three appointments over three months to ensure full results. Because it is a dermal filler, it is a temporary enhancement so follow-up appointments will be needed to maintain the look you desire. We will discuss all of these during your consultation and each appointment.
