Sculptra in Boca Raton, FL
Beautiful, healthy, youthful skin is always in style, but as time goes on, it can become harder to maintain the skin’s vitality—especially with age, genetics, and environmental factors constantly working against us. In our youth, our skin has and creates an abundance of collagen and elastin that help to keep it firm and smooth. However, as we age, collagen production drops, leading to wrinkles, fine lines, and a lackluster complexion. Dr. Albert Dabbah has added Sculptra to his list of anti-aging and skin-revitalizing treatments. Sculptra sets itself apart from its dermal filler counterparts as a treatment that encourages your skin’s natural ability to stimulate collagen production for a more youthful appearance.

What Is Sculptra?
Sculptra is an injectable bio-stimulator composed of poly-L-lactic acid. It has a liquid consistency that is injected beneath the skin, where it incorporates into your facial tissues and stimulates your body’s natural production of collagen.
How Is Sculptra Different from Other Fillers?
Most dermal fillers are comprised of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the body, and are designed to hold their shape in the form of a gel-like substance rather than a liquid. For that reason, dermal fillers are not intended to stimulate collagen production, rather they are used to temporarily mimic or replace lost volume in the skin.
Another significant difference is that the effects of dermal fillers are immediately noticeable, whereas the effects of Sculptra happen gradually as it takes time for the body to produce more collagen. However, results from Sculptra are long-lasting, with your collagen production being higher.
What Are the Benefits of Sculptra?
Aside from helping to naturally add volume and correct indentations, folds, and wrinkles, Sculptra offers a variety of other benefits.
Because the primary ingredient in Sculptra is synthesized from lactic acid, which is already present inside of your body, there is minimal risk of triggering an allergic reaction.
Similar to other injectable treatments, such as dermal fillers or Botox, patients can resume normal activities, including work, exercise, and special occasions almost immediately following treatment.
While Sculptra takes time for the body to produce more collagen. This collagen increase will gradually improve the appearance of your skin with visible results over several months. Additionally, because Sculptra encourages your skin to improve itself, no one will visibly notice that you had a procedure.

What Can I Expect from a Sculptra Treatment with Dr. Dabbah?
Dr. Dabbah will ensure that your treatment is performed under sterile conditions and with the utmost care and comfort. Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed, so we do recommend that patients arrive at their appointment with clean skin. While our Sculptra treatments are considered tolerable by most patients, an anesthetic cream can be applied to ensure your comfort.
Once your skin is prepared, Dr. Dabbah will mark the targeted areas and prepare you for the procedure. Sculptra is strategically injected by Dr. Dabah into the desired areas.
After your Sculptra treatment, you’ll need to massage the area for five minutes five times a day for several days. This step is critical to stimulate the microparticles to ensure even distribution and encourage collagen production.
What to Expect After a Sculptra Treatment?
You should expect mild soreness and swelling at the injection site for a day or two as the Sculptra fully incorporates into the tissues. Bruising can occur, but the risk is minimal. To help avoid bruising, we recommend patients avoid blood thinning medications and supplements, such as aspirin, Advil, Aleve, ibuprofen, vitamin D, and fish oils. Patients should also avoid using retinol products the week before their appointment.
Within two months of your Sculptra injection, you will begin noticing subtle results. Results continue to improve as new collagen forms. It is recommended that a second treatment be administered within two months to achieve the intended results.
Why Choose Dr. Dabbah for Your Sculptra Treatments in Boca Raton, FL?
