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.
"I was so nervous and self conscious about going to the dermatologist for the first time and both Dr. Day and her staff were amazing! Dr. Day was super kind and easy going and professional which made the visit a wonderful experience. I love how thorough she is and how she takes time to explain information to you to make sure you understand. Highly recommend her for your dermatologic needs!"- H.R. / Google / Jun 26, 2020
"i AM 72 YEARS OLD AND HAVE MELASMA. THIS IS A DARKENING OF THE SKIN ON MY FACE. I WAS STARTING TO LOOK LIKE A RACCOON. i COULD NOT WEAR MAKE-UP BECAUSE MY FACE WAS 2 DIFFERENT COLORS AND NOTHING WAS ABLE TO COVER UP THE DARKENED SPOTS. I WENT TO ONE SKIN DERMATOLOGY AND IN A MATTER OF 2-3 WEEKS MOST OF MY FACE WAS THE SAME COLOR. I WENT TO MY NIECE'S WEDDING AND FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 5 YEARS I WAS ABLE TO WEAR MAKEUP. I CANNOT BEGIN TO TELL YOU WHAT A DIFFERENCE IT HAS MADE FOR ME. I FELT SO SELF CONSCIOUS OF MY FACE AND THEREFORE DID NOT GO VERY MANY PLACES NOR INTERACT WITH MANY PEOPLE. THIS IS NO LONGER THE CASE! THANK YOU VERY MUCH DR. RACHAEL DAY AND ONESKIN DERMATOLOGY."- S.S. / Google / Sep 24, 2021

"I went to see Dr. Day and her team for a skin emergency a few months ago. I have dry skin with some pigmentation that made me self conscious. After a few treatments, it was suggested for me to try SENTE dermal repair cream twice a day. Let me say something about this particular product - it is short of a miracle, for a 51 year old, brown skin Asian lady this is exactly what I needed. Believe me, I have tried many beauty products in the past with little success. Some of the pigmentation cleared within a week, that’s the end of May 2021, now my skin is bright and luminous if I may use that word. If you in need of a skin care product and you could only get one, this is it. Invest in yourself, believe me it is worth it."- P.D. / Google / Sep 10, 2021

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.
