Add volume and increase your own collagen production with Sculptra
Everyone deserves to feel good about the way they look; however, as time passes, environmental factors, lifestyle choices, and daily habits can lead to changes in an individual’s facial features. The good news is that the continued advancements in facial rejuvenation products and procedures have made it possible to restore many of the facial features that are negatively affected by these factors: Thus, providing the patient with the youthful, vibrant appearance that he or she desires.
Sculptra consists of poly-L-lactic (also referred to as polylactic) acid. The poly-L-lactic acid that Sculptra contains is a synthetic substance created to replicate a byproduct that the muscles naturally create during exercise.
Sculptra is different from dermal fillers in that it stimulates the body to repair and produce collagen; thus, triggering the body to restore lost volume from the inside. It is this product’s ability to rebuild and repair that sets it apart from other injectables that are used to address the signs of aging. Just like the dermal fillers that consist of hyaluronic acid, allergy testing before receiving treatment with Sculptra is not necessary.
In order to attain the best results possible, a customized treatment plan is created for each patient. Typically, patients receive a series of injections that are administered a few weeks apart. During each treatment session, our injectors will target the areas of the patient’s face that they would like addressed
Patients can return to their regular activities immediately after their treatment session. Directly following the treatment, patients will experience slight bruising or redness in the areas of the face where the injections were administered. In addition, bleeding, itching, swelling, and mild discomfort may be experienced.
While patients will notice a difference directly following treatment, the full results will not be evident for several weeks. Just as it takes time for the body to produce collagen, the benefits achieved with Sculptra take some time to appear.
Sculptra is injected deeper into the dermis than the other dermal fillers are. To attain optimal results, most of our patients require 2 or 3 vials over the course of several months. The full effect achieved will become visible within about 7 weeks and the results achieved can last up to 2 years.
If you are noticing the tell-tale signs of aging, contact the Aesthetic Lounge to schedule a complimentary Sculptra consultation. We look forward to creating your custom aesthetic treatment plan.
