What is Sculptra?
Volume loss happens during the natural aging process, particularly in the mid-face as the cheeks become hollow and flat. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Rachel Day offers Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid-based injectable dermal filler that allows for fuller and longer-lasting volume replacement in the mid-face. In addition to increasing the volume of the mid-face, Sculptra can reduce the look of shallow to deep wrinkles and lines, including the nasolabial folds (also known as smile or laugh lines) that run from the outside of the nose down to the corners of the lips. With a unique formula, Sculptra increases the natural collagen production in your body so even if you stop treatments, your skin should be healthier and stronger compared to before the treatment. For more information, schedule an appointment for a consultation at OneSkin Dermatology in Chambersburg, PA.

Sculptra Aesthetic is ideal for anyone who wants to boost volume in their cheeks without undergoing surgery. Candidates may have naturally thin cheeks, whereas other patients may have age-related volume loss. Sculptra dermal filler may also help to improve shallow to severe facial wrinkles and lines, like chin wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. Since Sculptra's formula helps to prompt the natural production of collagen in the skin, many patients will see an improvement in the appearance and health of their skin.
Our Injection Technique
After your consultation to determine your custom treatment plan, you can receive your Sculptra injections in one of our minor procedure rooms. We can use a local anesthetic or numbing cream for added comfort if you'd like. As soon as you are prepared, the filler is injected down to the deeper skin layers at the selected areas. For best results, Dr. Day suggests a series of four injections each performed at OneSkin Dermatology about three weeks apart.
What to Expect
Following your Sculptra treatment, you may have mild to moderate redness, swelling, tenderness, or bruising at the sites of injections that should subside in a few days. To speed up healing, you can apply cold packs to the injection sites. You should avoid UV exposure as much as possible after your injection and use sun protection. Many patients will have clear improvements immediately following their appointment with final results appearing after 3 – 5 months as the natural collagen production improves the health of the skin. When performed as a series of injections over the course of 3 – 4 months, results may be visible for up to two years.
Sculpt Your Unique Look
Boost the youthful volume and smoothness your skin once had with nonsurgical Sculptra Aesthetic injections at OneSkin Dermatology in Chambersburg, PA.
