What is Sculptra?
Compared to other facial fillers, Sculptra Aesthetic, does fantastic work when injected directly into the face and helps restore wrinkles around the chin, lines around the mouth, and the deep lines between the nose and mouth. Sculptra is an injectable filler offered by our board-certified dermatologists at Snyder Dermatology in Austin, TX for skin rejuvenation without having plastic surgery.
Lipoatrophy may be a natural consequence of aging or other medical conditions, but with Sculptra you can have beautiful, fuller facial features again. Composed of poly-L- lactic acid, a synthetic, biocompatible material that can be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures, and should not harm your body. If you would like to learn more about Sculptra, please contact us today for your consultation in our dermatology office.
"As usual, Dr. Aranda goes above and beyond in providing a personable care that is difficult to find. She takes the time to discuss various treatment options, discusses the pros and cons of each and genuinely values your input to collectively determine the best outcome. I feel so strongly about Dr. Aranda, Dr. Snyder and their professional staff that I still went to them last year when they were out of network. Thank you Dr. Aranda, you're just great!"- B.J. / Google / Mar 25, 2017

"Generally you go see a dermatologist when you are having some sort of skin issue or thing you want to address. After seeing 6 different dermatologists over a few years and never getting results I came across Dr. Renee Snyder. Not only does this doctor take the time to listen to all of your challenges and concerns, but she is direct and aggressive in her approach yielding the best results. Her team is extremely knowledgeable and super sweet. She is straight to the point with her approach to targeting all your skin needs. She has the most cutting edge treatments in the Austin area. Her experience and expertise creates an environment that trumps any other in this field. I have found the best dermatologist and if you are needing to figure out who to go to she is your golden opportunity to skin health. The best thing is, if you are on the fence about a protocol, she is a straight shooter and if she doesn't think it is right for you she won't try and sell you on any service or treatment. After your appointment, make sure you go see Rachel for Microneedling and Ultherapy. It makes you look even more amazing!! Then check out their non-toxic skin care and make-up products for sale. Best in the industry!"- G.W. / Yelp / Oct 31, 2017
"Clean, friendly, accommodating when I was running late and called when I realized I was behind. Really appreciate the professionalism of the staff. The person on the phone was patient and gave me a ton of options for both the round rock and the austin locations which helped me see the doctor earlier. They had a bunch of samples outside by the reception area plus coffee/water (I think, they were out of water when we were there). Would recommend. Reserved covered parking was extra nice at the RR location, esp in this Texas heat!"- C.L. / Yelp / Sep 25, 2017
"My wife, son, mother in law and I have all gone to Dr Arandas for various dermatological problems. She has been consistently fantastic. Friendly and helpful, always looking for the simplest and..."- E.F. / Yahoo / Sep 12, 2017
As with many injectable fillers, it is normal to see redness and slight swelling in the area, and should go away within a few hours. You will be able to go about your day as normal, but we do recommend that you do not exercise for at least 24 hours to avoid complications. If the side effects last longer or are excessive after you leave our office, please do not hesitate to call our office and report the condition of your skin.
When you come into our dermatology office for your Sculptra injections for the first time or for your regularly scheduled dosage, your appointment time will take approximately 45 minutes. The skin on the injection site will be cleansed and marked on the exact locations of your face where the product is to be placed. If requested, a topical anesthetic can be applied to the skin before the ultra-fine needle is used. At your private consultation, we will discuss with you the dosage needed to achieve your aesthetic goals. Every patient will have his or her own number of injections as determined by the dermatologist. Typically, three sculptra sessions are required spaced 6 weeks apart.
What to Expect
As the only Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved poly-L- lactic acid filler on the market, Sculptra is different than other cosmetic fillers because the results are not immediate. We schedule several treatment sessions spread 6 weeks apart because it stimulates your body's natural collagen to be produced. Improvements are typically maintained for 2 years after an injection series. Your skin will subtly change over a period of time, making you look more radiant and younger in the process.
