Sculptra in Charlotte, NC Darst Dermatology helps you put your best face forward with personalized Sculptra® treatments in Charlotte, Matthews, and the surrounding North Carolina communities. What Is Sculptra®? Sculptra® is an injectable filler that subtly reduces the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds over time. It’s best if you want to improve the look of shallow to deep creases and hollows in the temples, lateral cheeks and jawline. Results appear gradually and typically last about two years. How Does It Work? Sculptra® helps to replace the collagen in your skin that’s been depleted over time. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that maintains your skin’s smooth, youthful texture. As you age, your body creates less collagen and wrinkles and depressions appear. Sculptra® stimulates your skin to produce more of your own collagen that has been lost and gradually brings about a fresher, younger-looking appearance. View our Sculptra before and after gallery Why Is Sculptra Different? You won’t notice immediate results following treatment with Sculptra®. Instead, subtle improvements appear following each of three treatments scheduled three weeks apart. Your face will become fuller and more youthful over time rather than overnight, resulting in a more natural-looking anti-aging treatment. Are There Any Side Effects? You might experience some temporary tenderness or swelling near injection sites, but you should be able to resume normal activities immediately following treatment.
