What is Sculptra?
Volume loss can start to naturally occur during the aging process, especially in the middle of the face. This can make your cheeks look flat and hollow. To treat this issue, Dr. Michelle Eagan uses Sculptra Aesthetic injectables. Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid dermal filler that adds long-lasting volume in the apples of the cheeks. In addition to enhancing your cheeks, Sculptra decreases the appearance of fine to deep lines and wrinkles, including laugh or smile lines. Sculptra is an FDA-approved dermal filler, which helps stimulate the production of collagen. So even after you stop receiving Sculptra treatments, your complexion should still look healthier than before. Please schedule an appointment at New Orleans Plastic Surgery in Louisiana to learn more about the benefits of Sculptra.

"Dr Eagan did my breast aug in March 2020. I searched for months before selecting a doctor and the reason I chose her is because her personality is outstanding!! She is by far the kindest doctor I have ever met!!! She is not a doctor that will put too much on your body if your body can not handle it. I told her what I wanted and she went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with my results! I am 4 months post op and I swear I fall in love with my procedure results all over again every single day! We are already discussing lip injections because she is just absolutely fantastic! Always available when I needed her and every appointment she has always greeted me as a friend and made sure I had a great appointment!! Wish I could give more stars to her!! Make sure to check her out because you will NOT regret it"- S.S. / Google / Jul 23, 2020

"I had an incredible experience with Dr. Eagan at New Orleans Plastic Surgery. Dr. Eagan is very talented and knowledgeable. After two pregnancies that left me with irreversible damage to my stomach, I had a tummy tuck with abdominal muscle repair. My results exceeded my expectations. Dr. Eagan patiently addressed all of my questions. She gave me options for my specific situation and was not pushy about adding any additional unnecessary procedures. I was given all of the information I needed prior to surgery and for after-care. She was readily available in the days following the surgery for any concerns and gave me the right combination of medication to keep me out of pain. I followed all of her directions and feel like I had a quick and successful recovery. I couldn’t be happier with my incision. It is really straight, thin, symmetrical, no dog ears, and well placed. Having my muscle separation repaired restored my ability to properly workout, dance, and do all of the things I was lacking the confidence to do. I’m so happy to have my life and body back.LikeShare"- V.R. / Yelp / May 01, 2023

Is Sculptra Right For You?
Sculptra works well for patients who want to improve the contour of their mid-face without surgery. Thin or hollow-looking cheeks can happen for a variety of reasons, including aging or genetics. Sculptra injections can also fill in mild to severe facial wrinkles and lines, like marionette lines, smile lines, and Crow's feet. Because Sculptra's formula encourages the production of collagen, many patients notice a visible improvement in the overall health and appearance of their complexion.
How Are Sculptra Injections Performed?
After developing your custom treatment plan, we will perform your Sculptra injections in one of our minor procedure rooms. Normally, we can perform these treatments on the same day as your consultation. At the beginning of your procedure, patients receive numbing cream or local anesthetic, and we mark the injection sites. After prepping your skin, Dr. Eagan will inject the dermal filler into the deeper layers of your skin. For longer-lasting results, we recommend a series of four treatments scheduled three weeks apart.
What Should I Expect After Sculptra Injections?
Following your Sculptra treatment, you may experience mild or moderate redness, swelling, tenderness, or bruising near the treatment sites. These symptoms should subside on their own in a few days. To encourage healing, you can apply cold packs to the treatment areas. After your appointment, you should avoid excess UV exposure and use sun protection. Most patients will notice visible improvements immediately after their Sculptra treatment. Generally, it takes a few months to see the final results because your body needs time to start producing more collagen. When performed as a series of injections over 3 – 4 months, a patient's results may last for around two years.
How much does Sculptra cost?
Sculptra treatments can range in price, and it depends on how much you need to achieve your goals. You may need multiple injections for optimal results. During your initial consultation, we will discuss your goals and develop a treatment plan that aligns with your specific budget.
How much does Sculptra cost?
Sculptra injections can vary in price depending on how many units are needed to achieve your goals. You may need several treatments for the optimal outcome. During your consultation, your injector will discuss your concerns and develop a treatment plan with cost estimates.
How does Sculptra work?
Using poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), Sculptra is a treatment that works within the dermis of the skin to help stimulate the production of collagen. It can help to restore your skin’s strength and appearance as more collagen is produced. The rebuilt strands of collagen will visibly fill out facial lines, wrinkles, and folds.
Are Sculptra injections safe?
Sculptra is approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), and it has been used safely around the world since 1999. Though side effects are rare, they can include slight pain, bruising, redness, and swelling. In some cases, bumps may become noticeable if too much pressure is put on the injected area. Please contact us if you have any abnormal or lasting side effects.
What is the best age to receive Sculptra?
A dermal filler like Sculptra can be a good choice if you want to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It is ideal to fill wrinkles on the chin, lines around the mouth, and deep lines between the nose and mouth. Commonly, men and women get Sculptra starting around their late 30s to early 50s; however, Sculptra can be safely used on most men and women who are over the age of 18.
How long do results last?
For longer-lasting results, you might need to get several treatments. Sculptra is different from other fillers because the results can last up to two years. Since Sculptra continues to increase the natural production of collagen in your skin, results take longer to appear but last longer.
