Turn back the clock with Sculptra! This injectable collagen stimulator will enhance and gradually restore lost facial volume by activating an increase in collagen production. Collagen is the most common protein found in your body and is the basis of our skin’s inner structure. Collagen creates facial fullness and elasticity creating that much-desired firm and smooth skin. Let our team at Seychelles Med & Laser Spa help you create a more youthful look with Sculptra in The Woodlands, TX.
Sculptra, or Poly-L-Lactic Acid, is an FDA-approved biostimulator, take-out filler that is both biocompatible and biodegradable and has been used in the U.S. since 1999. Other collagens on the market such as facial creams or oral collagen do not penetrate the skin’s dermal layer. Sculptra is injected in the temple area, cheeks, nasolabial folds, marionettes, jawline, neck, and decolletage to help restore lost facial volume to the entire face, neck, and chest. It can also be used to minimize cellulite in the thigh area and can be used in the butt to enhance. Once injected, it is gradually absorbed into your facial tissue which triggers your tissue to create new collagen. The results are gradual and subtle, helping to recreate that youthful fullness and glow to your face.

What’s the first step?
The first step in getting Sculptra in The Woodlands is to contact our Seychelles Med & Laser Spa and schedule your free consultation. When you come into your appointment, you will be able to meet with one of our highly trained and certified Providers. You can address your personal body & face goals, ask questions about the treatment, and have the area you’re looking to target examined. You may also be asked questions regarding your medical history and lifestyle. It is very important to be open and honest when having your consultation because the information you provide will help prevent any unnecessary risks and produce the best results.
Once your Provider has the information they need, your personalized treatment plan will be created. If you agree with the plan, you may start your treatment immediately, or if you require some additional time, our Patient Coordinator will be able to help you choose a better day and time that better suits your schedule.
What to Expect on the Day of Sculptra
Your Sculptra treatment will take place in our boutique Medical Spa, so immediately, our soothing environment should help relax your mind. Before your treatment begins, you will be administered local anesthesia to numb the area and ensure minimal discomfort. Next, using a very thin needle and syringe, exact amounts of the Sculptra solution are injected into your body, encouraging the production of collagen in the treated area.
From start to finish, the treatment should take a little under an hour, making it a great lunch break procedure!
What is the downtime?
Although you may notice results immediately, most aesthetically optimal results are achieved after a few treatments that are performed once a month. The exact number of treatments needed will be determined during your consultation but could change depending on how your body reacts to the injections. The skin of the treated area(s) will look more toned, smoother, and in some cases, even have a cellulite reduction when used in the body.
After the Sculptra is injected, you may experience redness, swelling, tenderness, mild pain, or bruising. A cold pack can help alleviate mild pain and swelling in the first 24 hours post-procedure. Our Nurse Injector will provide a 5-minute massage following the procedure and teach you how to properly massage yourself at home. You will be expected to complete this massage for five minutes, five times daily, for five days. This massage helps distribute the Sculptra evenly and ensures there are no areas of a concentrated product.
How Much Does Sculptra Cost in The Woodlands?
The cost of Sculptra in The Woodlands is dependent on the number of treatments, and the amount you will need to meet your goals. The best way to determine how much your treatment will cost is to come in for your consultation and receive an evaluation. Once our staff has a better understanding of what you’re trying to achieve and how to help you get there, our Patient Coordinator can provide you with a breakdown of the total cost of your procedure.

At the beginning of your appointment, your face or body will be thoroughly cleansed, and a local anesthetic will be applied. The Sculptra is mixed with a small amount of lidocaine as well for your comfort.
Sculptra makes it incredibly easy to smoothen out your skin and even add a little more curves and contours to your body without surgery! Depending on your aesthetic goals, you can expect between two and four sessions at our office in The Woodlands, TX to achieve the best results.
Since Sculptra stimulates your body’s natural collagen production, it will take a little bit of time to begin seeing the best results. On average, patients can expect to see their results around six weeks after their first session but will be able to enjoy their new appearance between two and five years.
Of course! Depending on what you are looking to achieve from your Sculptra treatment, many of our patients in The Woodlands will combine their treatment with other injectables such as Lip Fillers or BOTOX, Radiofrequency with Microneedling, or even body contouring procedures such as EMSCULPT or CoolSculpting. If you have a particular goal for your appearance, please discuss them during your consultation so that our knowledgeable technicians can provide you with some of their expert recommendations.
Even though Sculptra is a very safe treatment, especially when performed by a trained professional, some common side effects are associated with it, such as:
Delayed appearance of small bumps (granulomas) under the skin
Swelling that may occur at the site of injection
Tenderness or discomfort
While most of these side effects will heal on their own over a day or two, if you experience any long-lasting or concerning reactions, please contact us immediately.
