How much do you adore the confidence boost you receive from a new cut and color at the salon? It creates your own hair feel light, bouncy and alive. And we don’t think about making certain we get those haircuts at regular intervals. But think about the skin? Even as we age, we lose volume inside our face. We get cellulite on our thighs and buttocks. We get those dreaded wrinkles. Perhaps you have considered making wrinkle and cellulite treatment part of one’s regular skin maintenance?
Sculptra, a dermal filler that stimulates our personal collagen production, will be the reply to these skin dilemmas. Clinical trial results demonstrate that cellulite treatment with Sculptra lasts at the least 25 months.
What’s Sculptra and what’ll it improve?
Sculptra is definitely an FDA-approved biodegradable, biocompatible synthetic filler that’ll replace lost collagen, bone, and fat tissue. It is a Poly-L-Lactic collagen stimulator (PLLA), just like dissolvable sutures. It will help restore your fat tissue loss, which reduces the look of folds and wrinkles. Sculptra advances the collagen slowly over weeks and months to fill out lost volume.
Sculptra also improves the texture of one’s skin. Even as we age and lose elasticity, we accept a “crepe-y” look. Sculptra increases the amount of collagen and elastin in the skin. With the proper injection technique, we can restore the anatomical proportions of your face to offer a younger appearance. Clients cannot believe how much smoother and suppler their skin feels after just a couple treatments.
Over time, Sculptra can improve:
- Lost volume in cheeks and temples
- Nasolabial folds, also known as laugh lines
- “Marionette” lines
- Undefined jawline
- Asymmetrical face
What can I expect during and after wrinkle and cellulite treatment?
We make use of a thin, 25-gauge needle to inject Sculptra superficially underneath skin or deeply on top of the bone to stimulate collagen production. The procedure takes about an hour with little to no downtime. You are able to go straight to your regular activates after your appointment.
Keep in mind that Sculptra accumulates over time which means you won’t see instant results in comparison to hyaluronic acid fillers (such as Restyline™ or Juviderm™). It is long-lasting (two years or more) but initially requires between 2 and 4 sculptra fillers for cellulite treatments. We usually inject two vials of Sculptra for your first visit. The last amount is set by your particular case.
For cellulite treatment, we insert the needle into the deep dermis at the precise location of the cellulite. The filler is injected through the fibrous bands that create dimpling. As Sculptra stimulates collagen production, dimpled skin is smoothed.
Just like your regular hair appointments, cellulite treatment with Sculptra is better completed with maintenance appointments every 12 months to ensure collagen is continuing to be produced.
Sculptra exhibits better yet and long-lasting results when combined with this other treatments like PRP.
