At Beyond Beautiful in Torrance, California
As we age, our body’s natural collagen production begins to slow down, causing our skin to lose much of its structural integrity. This results in undesirable lines and wrinkles, and sometimes a loss of facial volume. Fortunately, we now have Sculptra, a facial filler designed to counteract this process and produce long lasting results.
Sculptra is one of many anti-aging treatments available at Beyond Beautiful. With a few simple injections, we can erase physical signs of aging without cosmetic surgery.
When to Consider Sculptra
Sculptra is an ideal anti-aging treatment for those seeking long-lasting rejuvenation. If you’re unhappy with the appearance of sunken cheeks, nasolabial folds (deep folds between the nose and mouth), marionette lines (folds around the corners of the mouth), facial depressions or contour irregularities, you may want to consider Sculptra.

The best candidates for Sculptra are healthy and possess realistic expectations. Sculptra is not ideal for those who have an active skin infection or anyone who has had a previous allergic reaction to any of the ingredients in Sculptra.
What to Expect During Treatment
The consultation: In order to determine if you are good candidate for Sculptra, you will need to be honest and upfront about every aspect of your health. Your consultation will include an exam, as well as a discussion of your medical history and cosmetic goals. This information will help Dr. Khattab determine if Sculptra is the right choice for you.
Procedure: Prior to treatment, your face will be cleansed and treatment sites will be marked. Dr. Khattab will then inject Sculptra beneath the surface of your skin. Following injection, he will gently massage the treatment area to ensure even distribution. An ice pack will be applied to your skin temporarily to reduce swelling.
Recovery: You may experience some temporary redness, swelling or bruising at the injections sites. This should resolve within a few days. There is no downtime associated with treatment and you should be able to resume your daily routine right away. Dr. Khattab may recommend that you abstain from alcohol and rigorous exercise for the first 24 hours of recovery.
Results: Sculptra works by counteracting collagen breakdown beneath the surface of your skin. It differs from other dermal fillers because results are achieved over a series of treatments. Most patients require 2-4 treatments (performed in 3-6 week intervals) to achieve desired results. Because Sculptra restores volume deficiencies using your body’s own natural collagen, the results can last up to two years.
