We use products like Restylane, Botox, Dysport, and Sculptra® to help treat different areas of the face and body. We are extremely selective with our dermal filler brands, using only those that meet the highest standards set by the FDA and Health Canada such as Sculptra®. To learn more about the brands we carry and hold advanced training in, visit our Dermal Filler Brands page.
Sculptra® is an FDA and Health Canada Authorized dermal filler that provides long lasting results of up to two years, and is a great alternative to conventional hyaluronic acid fillers. Made from poly-L-lactic acid Sculptra® is an advanced filler that is used to improve facial volume and treat lipoatrophy, which is the facial wasting, or loss of facial fat. The advantage of using Sculptra® to treat facial volume loss over hyaluronic based fillers is that it triggers a controlled inflammatory response in the skin to stimulate the production of collagen. After the age of 18, we lose about 1% of our collagen annually, and as collagen is the building block to smooth and healthy skin, with the help of Sculptra® you can restore collagen loss. We also offer the Sculptra® non-surgical butt lift procedure.
The results of Sculptra® injections become visible gradually, usually within a few weeks. To reach your desired shape and volume we recommend our Vancouver Sculptra® patients to do several treatments with intervals of at least three to four weeks between each treatment. With little to no down time other than some soreness using Sculptra® to treat facial volume loss is a great long term alternative to fillers.
