Sculptra in Long Beach

Many of our clients approach us desiring an injectable treatment that does not require regular touch-ups. At The Waltzman Institute, we are excited to offer Sculptra, our longer-lasting alternative to dermal fillers. Compared to traditional hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, Sculptra can last up to two years or longer without touch-ups.

This non-surgical cosmetic procedure is administered at our Long Beach office by our team of talented providers. If you want to learn more about Sculptra in Long Beach, book an appointment with us today.

What Is Sculptra and How Does it Work?

Sculptra is an FDA-approved, volumizing dermal filler alternative treatment that contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). This biocompatible compound stimulates collagen production, naturally restoring collagen in the deepest layers of your skin and reinforcing its structural stability. It dramatically recontours your face, enhancing it with volume and plumpness while reducing the appearance of signs of aging, particularly fine lines and wrinkles.

What sets Sculptra apart is that the results give a more natural look to our patients in Long Beach compared to other volumizing treatments.

What Skin Concerns Can Sculptra Treat?

The goal of Sculptra injections is to restore volume. Sculptra is best applied to shallow, sunken areas of the skin—such as the hollows of the cheeks—and to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines on the face.

Sculptra, administered by our skilled nurse injectors in Long Beach, is a perfect treatment for you if you have any of the following skin concerns or conditions:

  • Chin wrinkles
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Smile or marionette lines
  • Volume loss in the face, including the cheeks, temples, and chin

Sculptra injections are safe and suitable for all skin types, shades, and tones.

Your Sculptra Appointment: What to Expect

During your Sculptra procedure, one of our seasoned aesthetic nurses will administer Sculptra to the treatment area(s) using a very fine needle. The procedure itself is comparable to similar injection treatments and is generally painless. Depending on the area(s) you are treating, your Sculptra appointment in Long Beach can be as quick as 15 minutes.

Downtime and Recovery

You will not require any downtime from your Sculptra treatment—you can immediately return to work following your procedure!

Sculptra Results

After your Sculptra treatment in Long Beach, you may see an immediate but temporary effect. The Sculptra injection is not actually a dermal filler itself; instead, it stimulates collagen production. This process will be seen gradually over a couple of months, which is when you will see the full effects of your Sculptra procedure.

Are Sculptra Results Permanent?

In most cases, Sculptra results are not permanent. However, one of the key benefits of Sculptra, and what sets Sculptra apart from dermal filler treatments, is that Sculptra results are very long-lasting and can last up to two years or more.

That being said, Sculptra’s results depend on the individual patient. Many patients require a series of Sculptra treatments to achieve their optimal results. We generally advise clients to schedule two Sculptra treatment sessions two months apart. We can give you more complete and personalized guidance during your initial consultation for your Sculptra therapy in Long Beach.
