With age, many women become averse to wearing clothing that could expose their legs or thighs due to the presence of cellulite.
Cellulite can make a woman feel self-conscious while wearing clothing such as skirts or swimsuits. An estimated 90 percent of women suffer from some degree of cellulite.

Sculptra for Cellulite
A number of cellulite treatments have become available to patients in recent years. However, most treatments offer only temporary improvements in the appearance of cellulite, and other procedures may involve invasive surgery.
Sculptra injections can provide dramatic outcomes in filling in the dimples and uneven skin, while disrupting the fascia underneath the skin. Sculptra offers improvements in the skin’s texture and gives it a subtle lift while making it firmer.
Sculptra can help banish cellulite in the treatment areas within two to three sessions that are administered six weeks apart. This treatment is almost painless and can be performed in a few minutes. Sometimes minimal bruising can occur in the treated areas.
Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) in Sculptra
The active component in Sculptra is Poly-L-lactic acid. This is a safe ingredient that is the same substance used in absorbable sutures and soft tissue implants. A type of Poly-L-lactic acid is generated in the muscles of the human body during exercise. Therefore, the body can easily absorb this substance.
Sculptra promotes the growth of fresh collagen in the injected site, unlike other hyaluronic based dermal fillers. Consequently, changes will not be visible instantly but may take a few months to establish. However, the results will offer high longevity.
At the onset of this medical spa treatment, the provider will mark the cellulite with a pencil and then ask the patient to lie down on the table. The patient will receive a localized painkiller in the treatment sites. After that, the only sensation the patient will feel is some pressure.
The treatment provider will inject Sculptra into the treatment areas using a needle. When Sculptra is delivered into the dimples, it fills them as well as enhances the production of collagen in the area. This helps the treated site appear smoother and firmer.
The Sculptra specialist will inject it into the dimples and creases caused by cellulite. The patient will instantly notice the results following the treatment. However, these outcomes will subside rapidly due to the presence of saline. In the next many weeks, Sculptra will trigger the production of collagen in the treated areas to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
The patient will return home with aftercare guidelines following the Sculptra cellulite treatment with Dr. Gordon Kaplan.
This treatment is performed under local anesthesia, and some standard side effects are inflammation, bruising, and redness. Patients should ask the treatment provider for more details if they are concerned about the side-effects of Sculptra.
