Affordable Sculptra™ Treatments at Aesthetic Envy in Sacramento

Aesthetic Envy offers affordable Sculptra™ face treatment in Sacramento, providing a natural, long-lasting solution for restoring facial volume and fullness.

What is Sculptra™?

Sculptra™ injection is an FDA-approved bioactive filler made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), designed to stimulate collagen growth in the skin. This gradual process restores facial volume over time, typically requiring three injections over three to four months. The results can last up to two years.

How Does Sculptra™ Work?

Sculptra™ is customized and injected into facial contours needing structural support and volume. Once the Sculptra™ molecules are distributed into the soft tissue under your skin, they stimulate your body to create a collagen matrix. While the Sculptra™ is eventually broken down by the body, the collagen matrix remains, providing long-lasting results for up to two years.

Benefits of Sculptra™

  • Safe and Non-Invasive: Sculptra™ is an FDA-approved, non-surgical cosmetic procedure that rejuvenates your natural contours.
  • Natural Collagen Production: This biostimulatory injectable stimulates natural collagen production, smoothing facial wrinkles and improving skin tightness.
  • Body Treatments: Sculptra™ is also approved for use in other body areas, such as the hips and glutes.
  • Long-Lasting Results: The gradual collagen production process creates natural-looking results that can last up to two years or more.

Why Choose Sculptra™?

As we age, we lose soft tissue volume in areas like the cheeks, temples, and midface, usually beginning in our 40s. Sculptra™ injections help reverse this process by stimulating the natural production of collagen, adding subtle volume to the treatment areas, and achieving a youthful appearance with natural fullness in the temples, midface, and cheeks.

Optimal Treatment Areas

  • Pre-auricular wrinkles (in front of the ear)
  • Nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the mouth)
  • Marionette lines (lines from the mouth to the chin)
  • Chin wrinkles
  • Submalar wrinkles (below the cheeks)
  • Cheeks
  • Temples
  • Buttocks

Sculptra™ works within the deep dermis, revitalizing collagen production to restore your skin’s inner structure and volume. Unlike traditional collagen creams, whose molecules are too large to penetrate the skin, Sculptra™ uses micro-particles that the dermis absorbs, effectively enhancing your skin from within.

How Many Sculptra™ Injections Do I Need?

Our injectors at Aesthetic Envy will create a custom plan tailored to your needs. Most treatment plans start with two vials per session, with at least two sessions per area of concern. We recommend allowing four weeks between treatments to let your body build upon the effects of injections. For larger areas like the buttocks, significantly more Sculptra™ is required, usually around four vials per side.

  • Please postpone your Sculptra™ face treatment session if you have received any vaccinations, antibiotics, or dental procedures (including cleanings) within the past two weeks.
  • Avoid alcohol consumption 24 hours before your service.

What is Microneedling with Sculptra™?

Microneedling with Sculptra™ combines the collagen-boosting effects of microneedling with the long-lasting volumizing benefits of Sculptra™. This innovative treatment targets fine lines, wrinkles, and skin texture by using microneedling to create micro-injuries in the skin, promoting natural healing and collagen production. When combined with Sculptra™, the treatment delivers PLLA deeper into the skin, enhancing collagen growth and providing more substantial, longer-lasting results.

Benefits of Microneedling with Sculptra™

  • Enhanced Collagen Production: The combination of microneedling and Sculptra™ significantly boosts collagen production compared to either treatment alone.
  • Improved Skin Texture: Microneedling helps improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of scars, and minimize pore size.
  • Long-Lasting Results: The added benefit of Sculptra™ provides longer-lasting volume and skin rejuvenation, with results visible for up to two years.
  • Minimally Invasive: This treatment is minimally invasive, requiring little to no downtime.

Microneedling with Sculptra™ is ideal for treating:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles

  • Enlarged pores
  • Overall skin texture
  • Areas needing volume restoration, such as the cheeks and temples
