If Botox just isn’t cutting it for those deep wrinkles and you are looking for a more long lasting result, Sculptra is the filler for you. Sculptra is a long lasting treatment for people looking to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds. It is the first facial injectable that gives you subtle results over time. Sculptra replaces lost collagen, giving you a more natural-looking appearance, without anyone ever knowing you had something done.
Sculptra works to replace lost collagen. Collagen is a key structural component that keeps skin youthful looking and smooth. As you age, your body’s collagen production decreases, and you may begin to see wrinkles. Within the deep dermis, your skin’s structure is reinforced as Sculptra helps to replace that lost collagen. This reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness of your shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that has been depleted over time. The result? Sculptra is different because it gradually and subtly corrects these facial wrinkles. This can provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance that can last up to two years.
Sculptra is most suitable for deep folds between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds) also called smile lines, the lines framing your mouth (marionette lines) and chin wrinkles.
Sculptra is administered in a series of treatment sessions. On average, three injection sessions are needed over a period of a few months. The number of injection sessions and the number of injections per session vary from person to person. It is important to return for all treatment sessions as instructed by your doctor in order to get the maximum effect from the gradual process of collagen replacement. The number of injections per sessions will vary depending on the degree of corrected you and your physician decide is right for you. Swelling may occur after your treatment and should subside within a few days. You may begin to see progressive visible results within the first few weeks after each treatment session. Following an average of three treatment sessions over a few months, you can expect to see a more natural, younger looking appearance that can last up to two years.
After each treatment session with Sculptra, there are a few easy things you will need to help with the treatment results. Within the first 24 hours of treatment, apply an ice pack to the treated area for a few minutes at a time. Make sure the ice pack is wrapped in a cloth and never applied directly to the skin. This will help to reduce common swelling. Also massaging the treated area for 5 minutes 5 times a day for the first 5 days after treatment will be beneficial to the treatment. Finally, protecting your skin from the sun is ALWAYS important, but after treatment, excessive sunlight and UV lamp exposure should be avoided until any initial swelling and redness go away.
