Sculptra Aesthetic is a biocompatible dermal filler gel that can add fullness to skin and enhance the production of collagen. This injectable cosmetic dermatology treatment is also effective in the treatment of specific types of acne scars.
The volumizing effects of Sculptra delicately stretch the surface of the skin reducing the appearance of acne scars. A majority of patients will require a set of three treatments sessions. Unlike many other dermal fillers which produce short-term results, the outcomes with Sculptra Aesthetic can sustain for up to two years.
Pockmarks or indented “ice pick” scars which remain as a reminder of old acne breakouts can become softer with Sculptra treatments. Just as wrinkles can be smoothed, ice pick acne scars can also be filled to bring them at level with the skin surrounding them.
Suncoast Skin Solutions, led by successful board certified dermatologist Dr. Christopher Ewanowski, provides treatments for acne scar reduction to patients in Tampa, Brandon, Lutz, Seminole, Riverview, Brooksville, Winter Haven, Daytona Beach, Largo, St. Petersburg, Ocala, The Villages Central Florida, Florida, and surrounding communities in the prolific Sunshine State.
How does Sculptra Aesthetic Work?
Sculptra is delicately injected into the acne scar pits over a series of three treatment sessions. In between the sessions, the dermatologist wants to rest the patient’s skin so that the filler can assimilate completely with the skin.
Sculptra contains a small percentage of collagen which vanishes in around two months. The body’s natural collagen integrates with the permanent element of Sculptra.
There is an incremental improvement in the appearance of the scars over the treatment sessions as the scars are raised slowly without overcorrection. Sculptra needs to be placed deep into the dermis. Therefore, the scars that are most responsive to this treatment are those that look like skin depressions but do not have sharp or ice-pick borders.
Powerful and Effective
People who do not want to consider facial fat transfer surgery will find Sculptra Aesthetic dermal filler to be a suitable nonsurgical alternative. The FDA has approved this treatment for adding volume to the depleted areas of the face.
Sculptra’s robust volumizing abilities and long-lasting outcomes set it apart from many other facial fillers that are available today. The filler gel offers fullness to the face as well as fills creases and hollows. This offers skin a subtle lift and helps mitigate the appearance of acne scars and other depressions in the skin.
Results after Sculptra Treatment
The patient can use makeup right after the treatment although some providers may ask the patient to wait for one or two days before doing so. While the patient can undertake routine activities immediately following the treatment, it is not advisable to exercise aggressively for the next day or two.
The patient will notice more volume for nearly two days following the Sculptra treatment, but thereafter the results will become more natural looking. Some bruising is normal, but it is usually minor.
The patient may experience mild to moderate inflammation in the injection areas which may last for up to one week.
