What is Sculptra?
As we age, volume loss starts to naturally occur, particularly in the middle of the face. This may cause the cheeks to look hollow and flat. Using Sculptra, a poly-L-lactic acid-based injectable dermal filler, we can boost volume in the mid-face. In addition to restoring the volume of the cheeks, Sculptra decreases the appearance of fine to deep wrinkles and lines, including the nasolabial folds (sometimes called laugh or smile lines) that run from the edges of the nose down to the outer corners of the mouth. With its unique gel formula approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Sculptra helps to increase the natural collagen production in your body so even after you stop injections, your skin should be stronger compared to before. Schedule an appointment at JEM Medspa in Orland Park or Elmhurst, IL to discover the advantages of this treatment.
"Hands-down the best experience ever with Samantha this place is superb, Here and Elmhurst office are both fantastic will go here for everything"- J.G. / Google / Aug 18, 2020
"I have nothing but utterly exceptional things to say about my visits with Jem Med Spa in Elmhurst! My injector, Nicole is truly an artist. She studies your face and tells you exactly what you need to achieve a refreshed, yet VERY a natural look! She is incredibly kind in listening to what my goals are and her execution is always beyond exquisite. I was absolutely terrified of getting fillers, as it was my first time, but Nicole has such a caring bedside manner in a way that makes you feel like you’ve been best friends for years. I always appreciate how patient she is in answering all my questions, too! My aesthetician, Emily, is always fantastic. She is the absolute best. I struggle with rosacea and hormonal breakouts, which I know can be challenging to treat, but she always has a solution to help me achieve my best looking skin. Emily has customized a whole treatment plan for my skin going into fall so I can reach my skincare goals. I’ve gone through a couple of BBL laser treatments with her. She is always incredibly attentive in checking in with how I’m feeling each session so that I can maintain optimal comfort. I always look forward to my appointments at Jem MedSpa because of how AMAZING I feel when I leave. It’s all thanks to the quality providers who work here."- K.M. / Google / Aug 28, 2021

"I didn’t have the best impression initially..but my gosh I didn’t even have to mention my discontent and the manager went so far above and beyond to make sure I had a positive experience/impression. They absolutely care about their clients and reputation."- K.L. / Google / Aug 14, 2021

Sculptra works best for patients who want to boost contour in their cheeks without surgery. Some candidates may naturally have thin cheeks while others experience full cheeks, which deflate with age. We can also use Sculptra dermal filler to improve mild or severe facial wrinkles and lines, including the nasolabial folds, chin wrinkles, and marionette lines. Since Sculptra's formula boosts the natural production of collagen, most patients will experience noticeable improvements in the overall health and appearance of their skin.
Our Injection Technique
During your consultation, we will develop your unique treatment plan. Usually, we can perform Sculptra injections right after your consultation. In one of our private procedure rooms, we start by cleansing your skin to remove any oils or dirt. If needed and to reduce discomfort, we can apply local anesthetic or numbing cream. Next, we will mark the treatment areas and inject Sculptra into the deeper layers of your skin. For optimal results, we suggest a series of four Sculptra injections at about three weeks apart.
What to Expect
After your appointment, you may experience mild to moderate swelling, redness, tenderness, or bruising near the treatment sites. In several days, these symptoms should naturally subside. To promote healing, you can apply cold compressions on the injection sites. After your appointment, you should avoid excess UV exposure and use sunscreen. Immediately after their treatment, many patients will see noticeable improvements. Complete results take a few months because the skin needs time to increase the production of collagen, which improves the health of the skin. If we perform a series of Sculptra injections for the next 3 – 4 months, your results may last around two years.
