Patients require an average of three non-invasive Sculptra® face lift injection sessions, performed by Dr. Amanda Patenaude, over the span of a few months with results occurring gradually and subtly over the following 3-6 months and lasting as long as 3-5 years. Massage is an important part of the post-treatment care. Massage at the injection site will allow for a more even distribution of the Sculptra® giving you a natural uniform fill. Downtime is minimal and Sculptra® face lift treatment satisfaction rates are extremely high with almost all patients choosing to continue on with maintenance treatments over subsequent years.
Sculptra’s main ingredient, poly-L-lactic acid, is injected into the face to help replace lost collagen. Within the deep dermis, your skin’s structure is reinforced as Sculptra® Aesthetic helps to provide a collagen foundation which gradually restores the volume which has depleted over time. Sculptra® face lift injections correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds, hollow cheeks and temples, lifting and tightening the face. This poly-L-lactic acid ingredient is biocompatible, biodegradable and has been used safely and effectively by physicians in other fields of medicine for decades.
