LazaDerm Skincare Centre™ offers the non-surgical Sculptra® procedure to patients desiring subtle to dramatic results. Sculptra is a synthetic injectable material known as poly-L-lactic acid. Sculptra works subtly and gradually over time, differing from hyaluronic acid fillers, as it helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost due to the aging process.
Once this bio-stimulator is injected below the surface of the skin, it helps your body regenerate its own collagen. Sculptra is used to plump up larger surfaces of the skin, creating an overall smooth appearance without any scarring. Several treatment sessions may be needed to reach desired results. Sculptra is FDA approved to last up to two years.
The procedure varies from person to person, depending on unique facial characteristics and goals. Dr. Hansen takes into consideration a client’s skin type, degree of skin damage, collagen depletion and skin laxity. Desired results are also reviewed. Once the initial consultation is complete, a “plan of action” is developed. A series of injections may be required. The actual procedure takes less than an hour, even in the most dramatic cases.
