What Is Sculptra?

Volume loss is common as we age, particularly in the mid-face as the cheeks tend to become flat and hollow.

Founder Dr. Jon Ricks uses Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid dermal filler that allows for volume that makes you appear youthful. In addition to increasing the contour of the cheeks, Sculptra can decrease the appearance of shallow to deep wrinkles and lines, like the nasolabial folds (also known as smile or laugh lines) that start at the sides of the nose down to the corners of the mouth. With its unique formula approved by the FDA, Sculptra increases natural collagen production in your body. So even if you stop getting injections, your skin should appear healthier and stronger compared to before treatment. Schedule a consultation at Ciao Bella Medical Spa in Frisco, TX to discover the advantages of this advanced dermal filler.

Who Is A Candidate For Sculptra?

Sculptra Aesthetic is best for patients who want to boost the contour of their cheeks without surgical implants or other invasive procedures.

Candidates may have been born with thin cheeks, whereas others experience volume loss with age. Sculptra injections can also be used to treat fine to severe facial lines and wrinkles, including nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and chin wrinkles. Since Sculptra helps increase natural collagen production, most Frisco Sculptra patients will notice an improvement in the appearance of their complexion over time.

What To Expect During Sculptra Injections

Custom Treatment Plan

After a consultation to determine your custom plan for treatment in Frisco, TX, you can receive Sculptra injections in one of our private procedure rooms. Your injector may use a numbing cream or local anesthetic before cleaning and marking the areas to be injected. Once you are ready, the filler is administered down to the deeper skin layers at the selected sites. For longer-lasting results with Sculptra Frisco injectables expert Dr. Jon Ricks recommends a series of four treatments, each scheduled at Ciao Bella Medical Spa about three weeks apart.

How Long Is Recovery After Sculptra?

What to expect after treatment

Following Sculptra treatment, you may have mild or moderate redness, swelling, tenderness, or bruising that should subside in 3 – 5 days. You can apply a cold compress to the treated areas to increase your comfort. Avoid UV exposure as much as possible after your appointment and use sun protection. Most patients will notice clear improvements immediately after Sculptra treatment, with final results developing after a few months as collagen enhances the health of the skin. When performed as a series over 3 – 4 months, your results may last as long as two years.

"Dr. Ricks is a great doctor! He’s compassionate and understanding. He also takes time to listen to what I have to say instead of trying to rush me out, which is very important. He also takes time to call to check on me after the many surgeries that I have had, and that says a lot. Dr. Ricks goes above and beyond for his patients. A doctor that goes that extra mile and still has time to run a full time business says a lot. THANK YOU, DR.RICKS."

"Dr. Ricks is by far the best OBGYN out there. From the first appointment, he has been great. His bedside manner is amazing, and he is truly knowledgeable and will spend the time with you to be sure you understand what’s going on, too. He will go above and beyond for his patients and has personally done that for me, as well as a couple of my friends that see him too. The office staff and clinical team are also top-notch…You’re not just another number to any of them. Hands down, the best office."
