Sculptra® in New Orleans, LA
Lost volume happens during the natural aging process, especially in the face as the cheeks tend to become hollow and flat. Plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters uses Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid injectable dermal filler that allows for fuller and longer-lasting volume in the mid-face. In addition to increasing the volume of the mid-face, Sculptra can reduce the look of fine to deep wrinkles and lines, like the nasolabial folds (sometimes called laugh or smile lines) that go from the edges of the nose down to the outer corners of the lips. With a unique gel formula approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Sculptra promotes the natural collagen production in your body, so even after you stop getting injections, your complexion should be stronger and healthier compared to before the treatment. In addition to improving facial lines and wrinkles, Sculptra can also be used to add volume and a mild lift to the buttocks. Schedule an appointment for a consultation at Dr. Jules Walters in New Orleans, LA to discover the advantages of this treatment.

Dr. Walters Is The Creme De La Creme - I had a Mommy Makeover (extended tummy tuck and breast lift w/ fat transfer) with Dr. Jules Walters on October 24, 2018.

I am extremely pleased with my experience. Dr. Walters is professional, talented, and honest. All of the staff members I encountered in the office were also very kind. I went to Dr. Walters for a breast augmentation and couldn’t be happier with my result. I highly recommend choosing him if you’re interested in this procedure. His passion to help his patients glow with confidence and his drive for perfection shows in his work.
Excellence in all! - I truly had the best experience and results I could hope for from Dr. Walters! My new reconstructed breast almost matched the first go-around, which is difficult to achieve. I had a DIEP flap with an easy to hide abdominal scar. Not all surgeons are able to do them so low, a testimony to his surgical and planning talent. Additionally, his bedside manner is excellent; he really helped me put...
Wonderful place. Incredible staff with attentive bedside manners. Will continue to use Dr. Walters in the future.
So happy I was referred to Dr. Walters. Everything I would have asked for in a doctor for what I wanted accomplished. Very happy with him and his staff.
Sculptra Aesthetic is great for anyone who wants to improve contour in their mid-face without implants and surgery. Candidates may have been born with hollow cheeks, whereas other patients have full cheeks that have deflated with age. Sculptra injections may also help to improve fine to severe facial wrinkles and lines, including marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and chin wrinkles. Since Sculptra's formula works to prompt the natural production of collagen in the skin, most Sculptra patients will notice an improvement in the appearance and health of their complexion.
Adding Sculptra to the buttocks has become a popular procedure known as a nonsurgical butt lift. This can be a good option if you only need a small amount of volume and lift in your buttocks. It is best used to fill in small areas of the buttocks or areas of cellulite.
Following your consultation to develop your unique plan for treatment, you will receive your injections in one of our procedure rooms. Your injector might use a local anesthetic or numbing cream prior to sterilizing and marking the sites to be injected. As soon as you are prepared, Sculptra is injected down into the deeper skin layers at the chosen areas of the face or butt. For longer-lasting results, your injector will perform a series of four treatments that are each done at Dr. Jules Walters around three weeks apart.
What to Expect
Following your appointment, you may experience mild or moderate swelling, redness, bruising, or tenderness at the injection areas that should resolve on its own in several days. To encourage healing, you may apply a cold compress to the injected areas. You should limit UV exposure after your appointment and always use sunscreen. You may notice clear improvements immediately following their injections with final results seen after a few months when the increased collagen production improves the health of your skin. If Sculptra is performed in a series over 3 – 4 months, your results may be visible for as long as two years.
Frequently Asked Questions
How exactly does Sculptra work?
The main ingredient in Sculptra, poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), works within the dermis of the skin to stimulate the production of collagen. Sculptra can help to restore the skin’s vitality and appearance over time as more collagen is formed. The additional collagen will visibly fill out lines and wrinkles for a naturally smoother, more youthful look.
Are Sculptra injections safe?
Sculptra is approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and it has been safely used around the world since 1999. Though side effects are rare, they can include slight pain, bruising, swelling, and/or redness. Occasionally, small bumps may appear if too much pressure is applied to the injected area. Please get in touch with us if you experience any concerns about side effects that are abnormal or last too long.
What is the best age to receive Sculptra?
Sculptra injections can help if you want to soften the appearance of static wrinkles and lines. It is often used to improve wrinkles on the chin, fine lines surrounding the lips, and the deeper lines between the mouth and nose (nasolabial folds). The most common age to receive Sculptra injections is between ages 30 – 55. However, Sculptra can be safely used on most men and women who are over the age of 18.
How long do Sculptra results last?
To make the results last longer and achieve the look you want, you might need to receive several Sculptra injections. A major advantage Sculptra has over other fillers is that the results can last as long as two years. Since collagen production continues to increase after the final Sculptra injection, results may take longer to appear, but last longer.
