At La Fontaine in Denver, we focus on artistry in facial rejuvenation. Sculptra is one of our favorite treatments at La Fontaine. We perform some of the best results in Sculptra Denver has to offer, with the lifting capacity equal to at least 2 syringes of other fillers, a duration of over 2 1/2 years, and natural results that come in gradually over 3 months. It’s recommended to almost all facial aesthetic patients as a good foundation for other fine-tuning treatments such as Restylane or Bellafill. The only downside to Sculptra is it takes 2-3 months to fully work. If instant correction for an upcoming event or wedding is desired then we recommend Restylane Lyft or Voluma for the instant pick-me-up. Dr. Oleszek likes using Sculptra as the foundation of any facial treatment plan, including:

  • Marionette lines (extending from mouth to chin)
  • Defining the jawline and lifting jowls
  • Lifting cheeks

How Does Collagen Work?

As the body ages, collagen is produced in lower quantities, resulting in the skin losing its firm structure, leading to wrinkles, lines, and sagging. Sculptra is a product that approaches this issue differently; it is a collagen stimulator that triggers increased the body’s own natural production of collagen to support skin structure and provide significant deep facial support.

Other hyaluronic-based injectables are gels that provide instant lifting or plumping, gradually going away over 6 months to 1 1/2 years. Sculptra lasts over 2 1/2 years and adds natural support to the skin or can create dramatic support to the cheek, chin or jaw. Because it comes in gradually over 2 1/ years the results seem the most natural of the injectables.

About Sculptra and Collagen Production

The critical ingredient in Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid, or “PLLA.” The microparticles of PLLA are absorbed in the skin structure, functioning to stimulate natural collagen production. The collagen strands within the skin structure are restored over time, leaving your facial skin firmer and stronger, smoothing lines and wrinkles in the weeks ahead. It is very rewarding to watch your skin becoming firmer and suppler as the days pass – as your body produces more natural collagen.

Is Sculptra Safe?

Sculptra is made from biocompatible, biodegradable materials. The injectable is delivered into the deeper layers of the face or skin. To produce the maximum improvement requires a series of treatments with Sculptra, an average of three. The number of injections needed varies patient to patient, based upon the current condition of the facial skin. No allergy testing is required for our Sculptra in Denver. Minor side effects such as swelling, redness, tenderness, or minor pain at the injection site may occur, but soon fade.

Am I a Candidate for Sculptra Treatments?

If you, like many of our patients, want to improve the quality of your skin but want to avoid a “worked-on” look, our professional team at La Fontaine understands. While dermal fillers are very effective for filling lines and wrinkles, many of our patients undergo Sculptra treatments for a very natural firming effect –it is your own body that does the work. If you struggle with any of the following, we invite you to find out more about Sculptra:

  • Loss of skin firmness and structure
  • Diminished projection of the cheek or chin
  • Jowls or a weak jawline

Why Choose La Fontaine for Sculptra Treatments?

At La Fontaine, all treatments are performed by our expert physician injector, Dr. Ken Oleszek. We take great care in the placement of the injections and the quantity needed to produce the firming, lifting effect of Sculptra. You can be confident that your treatment will be performed with the highest level of professionalism and care.

What is Poly-L-Lactic Acid?

Poly-L-lactic acid is a substance with a long-standing history of very safe use in medical applications. It is a biodegradable synthetic polymer. In Sculptra, the microparticles of PLLA initiates collagen production by triggering the body’s natural reaction to a foreign substance, creating more volume at the injection site as the area treated regenerates collagen. The PLLA microparticles are naturally expelled by the body, as they are converted to carbon dioxide and water. Sculptra works with your body’s natural processes and can produce a remarkable improvement in skin quality.
