What makes Sculptra so effective?

One of the body’s secrets to youthful skin is collagen, a protein responsible for skin suppleness, resilience and radiance. As we mature, this precious protein begins to dwindle, leaving the skin’s contours tired-looking and hollow.

Sculptra’s revolutionary formula, based on poly-L-lactic acid, helps to trigger the re-growth of collagen. This can beautifully plump and restore the underlying scaffolds of the cheeks, jaw, chin and temple regions for a more youthful aesthetic.

Thanks to his refined, conservative technique, Dr. Ridha’s patients rarely experience any discomfort during their procedure. He uses a local anesthetic to numb the skin prior to injection, so you will hardly notice the treatment has been completed. In the worst case scenario, you may have some minor facial swelling that will dissipate within hours.

How long will my results last?

Results will vary from patient to patient, however on average, Sculptra results tend towards longevity, with changes still apparent after 2 years. Attending regular follow visits with Dr. Ridha is the best way to maintain your cosmetic results.

How Cellulite Forms?

Cellulite is frustrating condition characterized by dimples or rippled skin, typically on the thighs and buttocks. It occurs in the vast majority of women and is a common cosmetic concern.

Cellulite is caused by bands of connective tissue that run vertically through the layer of fat in the thighs and buttocks. When the bands are pulled tight or fat begins to protrude, it gives the skin a rippled texture and unattractive dimples.

How does Sculptra work?

Sculptra can be used to reduce the appearance of cellulite when diet and exercise aren’t enough. The injectable gel stimulates long-term production of collagen at the injection site.

When used to treat cellulite, Sculptra is injected directly into dimples or specific areas of concern. The lactic acid then initiates the body’s production of collagen, which smooths the skin and reduces the appearance of cellulite. The injection itself may also improve the dimple slightly by manually breaking up some of the connective tissue, reducing tension in the area and allowing the skin to relax.

Some patients need up to three treatments to achieve smooth and attractive skin. The results are expected to last approximately two years.

Benefits of Sculptra

Sculptra provides a safe and natural solution to unsightly cellulite. Lactic acid is a natural compound that already exists in your body, so no allergy tests are needed.

Collagen is proven to enhance the natural glow and texture of your skin, but its production tends to slow down as you age. Sculptra inspires the production of collagen near the injection site so your dimples and other imperfections are diminished.

Sculptra is a non-surgical treatment that is proven safe and effective for treating cellulite. It is relatively painless and has a short recovery period. The results will build as collagen production continues, and you can enjoy smooth and supple skin for up to two years.
