What is Sculptra?
Volume loss occurs during the natural aging process, particularly in the mid-face as the cheeks become hollow and flat. Kenneth Farr, M.D. uses Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid-based dermal filler that allows for longer-lasting and deeper volume replacement in the cheeks. In addition to improving the fullness of the cheeks, Sculptra can decrease the appearance of shallow to deep lines and wrinkles, like the nasolabial folds (sometimes known as laugh or smile lines) that go from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. With a unique gel formula, Sculptra prompts the natural collagen production in your body so even if you stop treatments, your skin will be healthier compared to before. Schedule an appointment for a consultation at VIP Cosmetic Surgery in Bluffton or Hilton Head, SC to learn more about the advantages of this injectable treatment.
"Dr. Farr is very knowledgeable and caring; I recommend him and appreciate the results of the Botox treatments I have received. He generously took time today to treat an issue I had with my eye, even though I was only scheduled for a Botox treatment! Having worked with a scheduled workday, I appreciate his doing an unscheduled procedure for me! Thank you to Melissa and the other caring staff; you are very special women who I greatly appreciate!"- M.C. / Google / Apr 14, 2021

"I’ve recently began struggling with adult acne and went to VIP for a hydrafacial to help boost my progress. I cannot say enough about my experience! Everyone had a smile on their face (through their masks) and was so nice! The prices are the best I’ve found in Bluffton. Jacqui was AMAZING! She talked me through everything she was doing and was so personable. I can’t wait to go back!"- C.S. / Google / Aug 13, 2020
how does sculptra work?
Following your consultation to determine your unique treatment plan, you can receive your Sculptra injections in one of our procedure rooms. First, the skin will be cleansed and a numbing cream or local anesthetic will be applied to the designated injection sites. Once you are prepared, Sculptra is injected into the deeper skin layers and massaged for even distribution. For best results, Dr. Farr suggests a series of four treatments each performed at VIP Cosmetic Surgery about three weeks apart.
After your appointment, you may have mild to moderate redness, swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the injection sites, which should subside naturally in 3 – 5 days. To ease discomfort, you can apply cold packs to the injected areas. Many patients will see visible improvements almost immediately after their Sculptra injections with full results seen after a few months, as the natural production of collagen strengthens the skin. If performed in a series of injections over 3 – 4 months, results can last up to two years.
