Sculptra is a different type of filler. Rather than just simply filling the area, SculptraAesthetic stimulates your body to produce its own collagen. SculptraAesthetic works more gradually compared to other fillers. However, studies show that it lasts over 2 years thus creating a both a natural and long-lasting cosmetic improvement.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is a unique injectable material that Dr. Mobley commonly uses to restore facial volume. It can be used in the cheeks, temples, and around the jaw line. Per the FDA, its three official sites of use are: nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the sides of the mouth), marionette lines (lines from the corners of the mouth down to the chin), and chin wrinkles. Sculptra Aesthetic helps to restore facial volume and while doing so, helps to restore a more youthful refined facial appearance.
To further enhance your experience at Mobley MD you should meet Kandice, our RN and Aesthetician. She has been an aesthetician for 13 years. After graduating from Aesthetics school in 2004 and later earning a Masters license, she worked in high-end resorts such as The Canyons and Waldorf Astoria. Kandice rounded out her skills with an RN degree in 2014, and experience in home health.
Kandice has one young man in her life, and spends most of her free time with him going to parks and playing sports. She also loves wine tasting, hot yoga, camping and hiking, and goes as frequently as she can.
The process is gradual and typically requires one or three sessions. After each session, your body’s facial collagen is stimulated and as time passes, the area treated will begin to slowly build its own collagen, which leads to a restoration of youthful facial volume and natural youthful improvement in facial appearance.
Each patient’s needs are assessed individually but when multiple sessions are needed, the treatments are typically done 6 weeks apart. One or two of these follow-up sessions, spaced approximately four weeks apart, are usually required to complete the process. What many patients love about Sculptra is that it is a gradual process so that one does not look dramatically different after a given single treatment. Rather the results come on over the course of several weeks allowing for a very natural but gradual correction to improve facial volume. Because it stimulates facial collagen, many patients also notice a positive “Sculptra Glow” to their skin in the weeks following the treatment.
The extent of the procedure may involve one or several areas of the face. The appropriate dosage for each area may vary, making it difficult to provide a meaningful cost estimate until you are examined by a doctor.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is provided to you in “vials”, not syringes. Your first treatment will typically require one or two vials and your subsequent session(s) will often only require one to two vials. After a consultation, you and Dr. Mobley can decide how many vials are right for you and this will determine the exact cost for the treatment.
A ballpark estimate is to budget between $1400-$2800 for a complete package of 1-3 Sculptra sessions. Remember, Sculptra lasts over 2 years according to FDA data. Keep in mind that Dr. Mobley is also a national teacher of Sculptra injection technique. Dr. Mobley and his Cosmetic Nurse Injector will take the best care of you. Rest assured that you are in the hands of a well-qualified team that has treated hundreds of patients over the years with various injectable products. It’s your face, “trust experience”.
