Natural Pace treatment
Are you noticing signs of aging in the mirror but hesitant to pursue drastic or exaggerated measures? Our Natural Pace treatment, featuring the use of Sculptra, is tailored to individuals like you. Sculptra, a collagen stimulant, effectively activates your body’s natural collagen reserves, promoting the restoration of volume and firmness in the foundational layers of your skin.
As time progresses, the treatment gradually unveils visible results, ensuring that each glance in the mirror reveals a more youthful and improved version of yourself. This approach allows you to counteract the aging process naturally, boosting your confidence in your own skin.
What is Sculptra?
SCULPTRA is a sterile, injectable, biocompatible, biodegradable material that is made of very
small particles of a synthetic polymer named “poly-L-lactic acid” (PLLA), carboxymethylcellulose
(USP), non-pyrogenic mannitol (USP) and sterile water for injection (USP). While the time needed
for SCULPTRA to resorb in humans is not known, in rabbits, particles were visible at over one
year after injection.
Sculptra works gradually over time, with results becoming more noticeable as the body’s collagen production increases. It is known for providing long-lasting effects, often lasting up to two years or more. Sculptra is a non-surgical procedure and is typically administered through a series of injections performed by a trained healthcare professional.
How does it work?
Collagen production in the body decreases as you get older and/or are exposed to the sun.
Wrinkles are one of the first visible signs of this. SCULPTRA is injected into the deep layer of the
skin where collagen naturally exists and is made. SCULPTRA works by initially filling a wrinkle
with small PLLA beads. As the beads biodegrade the body may produce new collagen where
SCULPTRA is injected. SCULPTRA is injected with multiple small injections using a fine needle
in a grid pattern to correct a wrinkle at the nasolabial fold or other facial wrinkles where this
injection technique is appropriate:
WHO MIGHT BENEFIT FROM TREATMENT WITH SCULPTRA?
SCULPTRA is intended for use in people with healthy immune systems. SCULPTRA is injected
in or under the facial skin through a small needle for correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold
contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles. A treatment regimen of SCULPTRA consists of up
to 4 injection sessions scheduled 3-4 weeks apart.
SCULPTRA may provide cosmetic correction of facial wrinkles with a Wrinkle Assessment Score

How Many Treatments Are Required?
On average, a series of three treatment sessions over the course of a few months may be needed. The number of injections at each session will vary, depending on the degree of correction needed and the treatment plan determined by you and your specialist.
How Soon Will I See Results?
Sculptra is designed to give you noticeable results that emerge gradually and can last up to two years.* Don’t be disappointed if you don’t see immediate results. A few days after treatment, you may look as you did before treatment. This is normal and temporary. The Sculptra regimen delivers its full effects with an average of three treatment sessions over the course of a few months. Because results happen gradually, you’ll see subtle, yet noticeable, results in the reduction of facial wrinkles and folds by comparing images before treatment and a couple months following treatment.
*Individual results and treatment sessions may vary. Clinical trial ended at 96 weeks (2 years). Safety and effectiveness of Sculptra have not been evaluated in areas other than nasolabial*
ARE SKIN TESTS NEEDED BEFORE TREATMENT WITH SCULPTRA?<br />
No skin testing is required prior to use in immunocompetent people with skin that heals normally.
ARE THE RESULTS FROM SCULPTRA IMMEDIATE?<br />
No. Unlike other wrinkle fillers, SCULPTRA provides a gradual improvement of the depressed area over several weeks as the treatment effects occur. During the initial treatment session with SCULPTRA, a contour defect should be under-corrected, not fully-corrected or over-corrected. It may seem that your treatment worked immediately because of swelling caused by injection and thewater used to dilute SCULPTRA. This usually resolves in several hours to a few days and may cause the original wrinkle to reappear: you may look as you did before your treatment. Visible wrinkle correction results appear slowly. Your healthcare provider should see you again in three or more weeks to decide if you need additional injections.
DO INJECTIONS OF SCULPTRA HURT?<br />
As with any injection, to decrease pain during injection, a topical or a local anesthetic may be used when injecting SCULPTRA. In U.S. clinical study, subjects recorded pain in diaries: 71% of all treated patients reported some pain after first injection, 14% of subjects had moderate pain. Most pain resolved in less than 24 hours.
