Sculptra® in Macon, GA
Many of our patients experience sagging skin when the collagen levels in their body decrease. At the Georgia Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, we provide Sculptra® injections to help naturally increase the amount of collagen in your skin. Our practice is led by Dr. Joshua R. Groves, board-certified by the American Board of Surgery, who has helped men and women in Macon, Warner Robins, Houston County, Bibb County and the surrounding area look their best through Sculptra® injections.
What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is a type of dermal filler that is derived from poly-L-lactic acid, a substance that helps replace the collagen that has diminished due to aging. It is designed to smooth wrinkles near the mouth, nose, and chin, giving skin a firmer, more uplifted appearance. Unlike other fillers, Sculptra® gives you gradual improvements, making it ideal for those who want a more subtle transformation over time.
Benefits of Sculptra®
Since the benefits of Sculptra® become apparent over a period of months, it is very likely that others will not even realize you have had a procedure performed. For many men and women, this is a huge benefit, because they worry that others will become critical over their decision to undergo cosmetic surgery. Sculptra® is also very safe, and requires only a single visit to our Macon, GA clinic.
Requirements for Sculptra®
To undergo a Sculptra® injection, you should not be pregnant or breastfeeding. Tell Dr. Groves about any allergies you have to medications so that he can determine if this product is safe for you. If you have an active skin infection, you will need to wait until it has cleared up before having treatment.
Is Sculptra® Right for Me?
Sculptra® may be the right choice if you:
- Have lines around the mouth, nose, or lips due to a loss of skin volume
- Want to look younger, but do not wish for a drastic change in your appearance
- Prefer that others not know you have had a procedure
How Involved is a Sculptra® Procedure?
Since it only requires a tiny injection, the Sculptra® procedure is minimally-invasive. You should notice no more discomfort than you would when receiving a vaccination.
How Long is the Recovery After Sculptra®?
Once Dr. Groves has finished with the injection, you can immediately go back to work. Aside from some very light swelling near the injection site, you should not observe any other discomfort.
