Sculptra in Shelby Township is a facial injectable designed to address volume loss and skin laxity. XO Aesthetics offers personalized Sculptra injections for the cheeks, temples, jawline, and other facial tissues to stimulate collagen production, resulting in a more youthful appearance.

Stimulate collagen production
for natural results

Sculptra is an FDA-approved facial injectable composed of poly-L-lactic acid, designed to combat signs of aging by stimulating collagen production. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, Sculptra works gradually over several months to restore volume and improve skin texture. It’s commonly used in areas prone to volume loss, such as the cheeks, temples, and jawline. Sculptra provides subtle yet noticeable results, enhancing facial contours and promoting a youthful look.

How Sculptra works

Sculptra, comprised of poly-L-lactic acid, works by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production. Once injected, the microspheres of Sculptra prompt a reaction in the skin, stimulating fibroblasts to produce collagen. This newly formed collagen gradually fills in wrinkles, restores lost volume and improves skin elasticity. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, the effects of Sculptra in Shelby Township are long-lasting, as collagen continues to regenerate even after the initial treatment period. The result is a more youthful, lifted appearance.

Your Sculptra session

During your Sculptra session, your healthcare provider will assess your facial anatomy and discuss your aesthetic goals. After cleansing the treatment area, they will administer Sculptra injections using fine needles. You may experience mild discomfort, but numbing cream can be used to ensure optimal comfort. The procedure typically takes 30 to 60 minutes, after which you can resume your daily activities without downtime. Multiple sessions may be required for optimal results, spaced several weeks apart.

Sculptra aftercare guidelines:

  • Massage the treated area as directed by your provider to ensure even distribution.
  • Avoid vigorous exercise and excessive sun exposure for the first 24 hours after Sculptra in Shelby Township.
  • Apply ice packs to reduce swelling and discomfort, if needed.
  • Stay hydrated to support skin healing and collagen production.
  • Follow any specific post-treatment instructions provided by your healthcare provider.
  • Avoid touching or applying pressure to the treated area for the first few days.
  • Use sunscreen daily to protect your skin from UV damage and maintain results.
  • Contact your provider if you experience any unusual side effects or concerns.
