Sculptra® in Monroe, LA and Southlake, TX
Sculptra® is a unique injectable treatment that stimulates the body’s collagen production, which naturally increases volume in the skin. This makes it a great non-surgical solution for enhancing the buttocks and other parts of the body. As a board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Janine Hopkins, M.D., F.A.A.D. proudly offers Sculptra® for patients in Monroe, Alexandria, Shreveport, the Ark-La-Miss, Southlake, TX and the surrounding areas of Northeast Louisiana.
What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is an injectable treatment that stimulates natural collagen production in the body. It does this with an ingredient called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). After Sculptra® is injected, the body absorbs PLLA through a process that triggers collagen production. Then, the body uses the newly-produced collagen to restore volume and otherwise rejuvenate the skin in the surrounding area. This makes it an excellent solution for a non-surgical butt lift, serving as an effective alternative to the traditional Brazilian butt lift (BBL).
Is Sculptra® Safe?
Yes, Sculptra® has been FDA-approved for over 20 years with a proven track record of safe cosmetic use during that time. Furthermore, in the context of buttocks augmentation, Sculptra® can offer some safety advantages to the traditional BBL procedure. The primary reason for this is that there’s no surgery required. Sculptra® is a simple injectable treatment, while the BBL procedure involves liposuction and fat transfer techniques. This reduces the risks involved with a fat transfer and facilitates more predictable results.
How Much Does Sculptra® Cost in Monroe, LA and Southlake, TX?
The cost of Sculptra® treatments can vary depending on your treatment goals and the extent of treatment necessary to produce your desired results. After Dr. Hopkins has examined your skin and developed your personalized treatment plan, we can identify the costs associated with your treatment and let you know what to expect.
What Are the Benefits of Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is the preferred method for non-surgical buttocks augmentation at Hopkins Dermatology because it offers the following benefits:
- Stimulates natural collagen production
- Non-surgical alternative to BBL
- Combines with other techniques for enhanced results
- No downtime
- Treatment takes 30-60 minutes
- Also suitable for wrinkles on the chin, smile lines, and marionette lines
What Should I Expect from Sculptra®?
Your visit for Sculptra® injections will be convenient and comfortable. To start, the treatment area will be cleaned. Then, a topical numbing solution will be applied to minimize any discomfort from the injection process. Finally, Sculptra® will be injected into and around the desired treatment area. The exact number and location of these injections will vary depending on your treatment goals. The entire Sculptra® treatment is performed in-office in less than one hour.
Is There Any Downtime After Sculptra®?
There is no downtime required after Sculptra® injections! While you may notice minor swelling or bruising due to the injection process, you can resume all normal activities immediately following your Sculptra® treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from Sculptra®?
The results from Sculptra® will develop gradually as the body begins to produce new collagen. This happens over the course of a few months, so you may not notice improvements until 1-2 months after beginning treatment. Furthermore, we often recommend a series of Sculptra® injections performed across multiple treatment sessions for best results. The results from Sculptra® are proven to last up to 2 years.
If you’d like to further enhance your results from Sculptra®, you may want to consider combining it with other treatment techniques. Dr. Hopkins may recommend the Perfect Peach Package, which includes:
While Sculptra® can provide impressive results on its own, many patients are able to achieve greater cosmetic benefits when combined with the treatments above!
