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.
"I've been a patient at Snyder Dermatology for about a year and a half. The second you walk into the Louis Henna location, you are greeted with a warm welcome. I really love that I can call the office and be seen by Dr. Cervantes within a week and a half or less. The staff is respectful of your time, and you can expect to spend little to no time in the waiting room before being called back. Dr. Cervantes is absolutely amazing, and really takes the time to diagnose you properly. She is friendly, professional, and extremely competent. I had a bad rash on my skin that I had confused for acne. She was able to properly diagnose me and my skin is back to being as smooth as a baby's bottom!There is also a wide array of cosmetic services offered at the office at competitive prices. They also offer samples of cleansers, creams, etc. which is really a great bonus."- C.P. / Google / Feb 28, 2019

"I've had nothing but a great experience with Dr. Parker. I came to her almost a year ago with problematic skin and after a month or so of treatment my skin was clear! I am extremely happy with my experience here at Snyder Dermatology and of course with my new clear skin!"- M.G. / Yelp / Dec 02, 2019
"I had terrible acne problems for the first time in 22 years and decided to try out this clinic. Right away the appointment was booked within the week and in my first consultation they offered me a long term plan and short term solution for the pain. The clinic is very clean and the staff is very friendly, they definitely make you feel at ease. On top of everything the doctors referred me to specific pharmacies that could offer me lower prices for the medications. My acne mostly cleared within a month but follow up visits made sure It cleared completely and made sure I was comfortable with the treatment and long term use."- D.C. / Google / Oct 26, 2019
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.
