Sculptra in Sugar Land, TX

Dr. David Stapenhorst of Signature Plastic Surgery offers Sculptra® treatments to the residents of Sugar Land, Texas, and Houston, Texas. Sculptra® is unique injectable filler that helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Collagen plays an important role in keeping the skin looking youthful and full. As people age, the body’s collagen breaks down, and less new collagen is produced. The skin loses elasticity and becomes vulnerable to developing wrinkles. Sculptra® contains a synthetic material, poly-L-lactic acid, which replaces the lost collagen, and fills in areas where the collagen has broken down. Sculptra® treatments typically last for two years.

What happens during the Sculptra® procedure by Dr. David Stapenhorst?

Sculptra® treatments typically require the patient to receive three injections over the course of three months. Dr. David Stapenhorst administers a topical anesthesia to help the patient remain comfortable during the procedure. He injects Sculptra® into the skin, and the number of injections during a session depends largely on the individual treatment plan.

When can normal activities resume after the Sculptra® procedure?

Normal activities may resume immediately after the Sculptra® treatment.

Is there any pain associated with the Sculptra® procedure?

Some patients experience mild discomfort while Sculptra® is being injected under their skin. Dr. Stapenhorst advises his Sculptra® patients that they may experience tenderness and swelling near the injection sites. Over-the-counter pain medications may help patients stay comfortable during the healing process. Some patients have reported bleeding, bruising, itching and small bumps under the skin after their Sculptra® treatments. These symptoms should resolve within three days. Patients who experience other symptoms should contact Dr. David Stapenhorst to schedule a follow-up appointment.

Dear Patients,

I am announcing the closure of my practice, Signature Plastic Surgery. Effective December 31, 2022, I
will be moving on to a new practice opportunity. I have enjoyed serving the people of Sugar Land since
2008. This has been a difficult decision for me to make, but I am looking forward to the new
opportunity, and I know that I will look back fondly on the past 14 years.
