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 seeing Dr. Snyder for the past ten years. The first time was when I was splitting my time between Los Angeles and Austin while in graduate school. I had a major eczema problem on my skin. I had no clue that the skin problem was from the fumes of an art project I had been creating for a client, till I discussed the specifics of my days before the out break with Dr. Snyder. She was like one of those damn ghost whisperers, walking me through my days. When she nailed the source, she simply explained to me the problem was from the fumes of the chemicals I was working with at the time (industrial resin and a catalyst). She prescribed a steroid and gave me a skin routine, my eczema went away within a week. Amazing! She is still my "go to" dermatologist for other issues I have had over the past few years. Yes, I travel from LA to Austin to see her. She's that good. Keep in mind that she is straightforward and to the point but awesome!"- J.S. / Yelp / Oct 02, 2019
"Dr. PARKER is an incredible dermatologist. I called on Tuesday morning in a panic because of an allergic reaction - she fit me in later that day. Not only did she work quickly to diagnose the problem, but she prescribed medications that fit my difficult and specific allergies. I called on Wednesday to check in and she spoke on the phone with me personally, and is meeting with me for a follow-up as well. 10/10 doctor all around- truly cares about her patients. Would recommend her to everyone reading this!!!! Best dermatologist experience I've had- and I've seen a lot of them."- C.C. / Yelp / Aug 22, 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.
