Gradually reduce the appearance of wrinkle
Sculptra is an injectable option that can effectively boost your look for the long-term. If you’ve tried hyaluronic acid fillers but want more natural, long-lasting results, Sculptra may be able to achieve your goals.
Dr. Angelchik was certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) in 1996 and successfully completed a rigorous recertification process in 2006 and 2016. He participates in the Maintenance of Certification program through the ABPS. He is a member in good standing of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. He has also been named to Castle & Connolly’s Top Doctors in America every year since 1996.
Sculptra is different from other injectable fillers. This product is made from a synthetic Poly-L-lactic acid material, and a natural form of this material is commonly produced by your muscles when you exercise. The poly-L-lactic acid in Sculptra will gradually boost the thickness of your skin by jumpstarting your body’s collagen production, gradually reducing the appearance of wrinkles. It is biocompatible and will eventually be safely absorbed by your body.
Patients looking for long-term results from injectable treatments can benefit most from Sculptra, although it’s important to discuss your expectations from treatment with Dr. Angelchik during a consultation in the Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Glendale, AZ area. He can then decide whether your goals are in-line with what Sculptra can achieve. You should also be sure to discuss any allergies or history of reactions to make sure your procedure will be safe.
Sculptra can be effectively used to treat wrinkles and folds in the face. Although Dr. Angelchik can use it to treat many different areas, Sculptra is approved for treating:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Chin wrinkles
Botox can be administered in a quick, in-office treatment session. Dr. Angelchik applies a topical anesthetic to the treatment area, and the product is then carefully injected into the individual muscles of the face and neck. This is completed over multiple small and precise injections to ensure the best results. Overall, the treatment session can take as little as fifteen minutes.
Dr. Angelchik can recommend the best non-surgical options for maintaining your results, which usually includes skin treatments to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Most patients see results from Sculptra for two years or more with regular treatment sessions to maintain your body’s natural collagen production. Dr. Angelchik can give you the best idea of how many treatments will be necessary in order to achieve your goals for Sculptra treatment.
Sculptra can be a great alternative to traditional fillers if you’re looking for long-term results. To begin discussing your options with Sculptra, contact our Glendale office and schedule a consultation with Dr. Angelchik by calling or filling out our online form.
