Introduction to Sculptra

As we age, we naturally lose subcutaneous fat, which in turn, causes the muscles on our face and neck naturally lose their strength, and the skin can lose elasticity. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle. Seeing an increase in wrinkles and sagging skin can affect our confidence, but it doesn’t have to diminish our self-esteem or lifestyle. By opting for a Sculptra treatment, you can give yourself a much-needed boost with a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure, and Dr. Yirae Ort is looking forward to giving you the skin makeover you dream of at her practice in Seattle, WA.

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is a type of biostimulator. This cosmetic procedure uses FDA-approved poly-L-lactic acid to reduce deep wrinkles in your skin. Sculptra works to promote the natural production of collagen in your face, helping your body reduce the appearance of fat loss in your face. Sculptra is FDA-approved and is used for applications ranging from stitches to implants. Over time, Sculptra will be absorbed by the body and is therefore completely safe. Sculptra offers more of a long-lasting and gradual approach to replacing collagen lost naturally with aging.

What are the benefits of Sculptra?

Designed to best benefit patients who experienced significant fat loss, these are some of the results patients come to at Yirae Ort M.D. Facial Aesthetic Surgery for a Sculptra treatment:

  • Restore youthful appearance
  • Smooth wrinkles and fine lines
  • Achieve softer skin
  • Soften or redefine contours
  • Long-lasting results
  • Non-invasive
  • Minimal downtime

Once completed, Sculptra’s benefits can last for two years, but as always, each patient is different and should expect their results to vary depending on their personal needs and treatment.

Who are the best candidates for Sculptra?

If you are interested in achieving smoother skin via a non-invasive cosmetic procedure, Sculptra might be the right treatment for you. Here are some of the attributes to consider:

  • Deep wrinkles
  • Dissatisfaction with your aging appearance
  • Realistic goals for the procedure
  • No other underlying medical conditions
  • Generally healthy and non-smoker

To receive more information about how Sculptra can benefit you and whether you are the right candidate, call Dr. Ort today to schedule a consultation. She will assess each case individually and recommend treatments that will benefit you.

What’s the first step?

The first step to getting a Sculptra treatment is to book a consultation with Dr. Ort. During this appointment, you will discuss your goals with Dr. Ort. She will assess your skin and face to determine whether Sculptra is going to benefit you, and what kind of results you can expect. Once your assessment is complete, Dr. Ort will direct you to make an appointment so you can begin your journey to youthful, smooth skin

What to expect on the day of a Sculptra treatment

On the day of your procedure, while you are being prepped, we will walk you through the treatment as discussed in your consultation so you know what to expect. We will first clean the areas of the skin where the treatment will be administered and a numbing agent or a topical anesthetic will be applied so that you won’t feel any pain or discomfort.

Either Dr. Ort or another member of our aesthetics team will inject the areas of the skin with a small needle. You may feel some pressure but you shouldn’t feel pain. Your provider will lightly massage the filler to evenly spread it around, and add more if needed. The time it takes to administer the Sculptra treatment depends on which areas are being treated.

Sculptra recovery

The best part about a Sculptra treatment is that it is non-invasive, and requires almost zero downtime. You will be able to return to regular activities right after your appointment. It is normal to experience some redness and irritation on the treatment site after your procedure, but this will subside by itself within a few hours. Dr. Ort will recommend a range of topical ointments that you can apply to alleviate pain, and help to aid in restoring your youthful skin. With all our skin treatments, we recommend avoiding excessive amounts of time in the direct sun without a protective covering and wearing sunscreen to ensure your skin stays healthy and strong.

How much does Sculptra cost in Seattle, WA?

The cost of Sculptra in Seattle will vary based on the following factors:

  • Amount of area on the face and skin being treatment
  • Total time needed for your appointment
  • Severity of your lines and wrinkles
  • Condition of your skin
  • Your age
  • General health and skin type

Once Dr. Ort has assessed these factors during your consultation, she will be able to give you a more accurate price point for your procedure. We offer financing for all our patients to make this procedure affordable and accessible.
