Sculptra® in Baltimore, MD
Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Theda C. Kontis offers Sculptra® treatments to the residents of Baltimore, Maryland, Washington, DC, and the surrounding areas.
Sculptra® is a long-lasting treatment that will restore lost facial volume and smooth deep lines and wrinkles. It works slowly and subtly to stimulate your body’s collagen production, giving you a younger-looking appearance that can last for years. During the course of two or three treatments, Sculptra® stimulates the body’s collagen production, smoothing away moderate to severe wrinkles, restoring facial volume, and filling out hollow areas. Patients are extremely happy with the results and are quickly embracing Sculptra® as their dermal filler of choice.
How does Sculptra® work?
Sculptra® is different from other types of facial fillers, giving a gradual result that lasts for several years. The product is made of the same synthetic material used for absorbable surgical sutures in small crystal form. The crystals are rehydrated in water and injected under the skin. Volume is immediately added to the face, but during the next 5 to 7 days this is reabsorbed, leaving the crystals behind. Your body then builds collagen structures around the crystals, gradually and permanently increasing the volume of previously depressed areas.
Sculptra® is used over a series of treatments at six-week intervals that work gradually to restore volume to the face, giving natural results over time. Once the desired look has been achieved, patients usually find results are maintained for about two years.
