What Is Sculptra?
Sclulptra Aesthetic, also known as Poly-L-Lactic Acid, is a synthetic sugar made up of many individual lactic acid units. Lactic acid is a substance that is found naturally occurring in your body. Sculptrais a safe, synthetic, biocompatible product that creates strategic volume to improve your contours. Unlike traditional fillers, when injected deep into the dermis of the skin, Sculptra stimulates the body’s own collagen. By creating fresh, new collagen and elastin the skin texture as well as volume is significantly improved.
How is Sculptra Injected?
Sculptra comes as a powder that is mixed with sterile water that allows it to be injected. Thismust be done about a weekprior to treatment to ensure proper hydration of the material and accurate dispersion of the product. After your Sculptra session, patients may have some soreness and mild discomfort that can be alleviated with Tylenol. Immediately after your treatment, you will see a sneak peak of the end result; however what you are seeing is just the sterile water that we use to mix the Sculptra into an injectable form. Your body then absorbs this sterile water solution in 24-48 hours leaving behind strategically placed particles of Sculptra, and then the magic happens. Your body’s natural response to the Sculptra is to encapsulate it with biospheres of your own fresh, young collagen.
What to expect
You will not notice the results immediately, so it is not instant gratification. The process of creating volume takes about 6 months in its entirety, however, early results can be seen in as little as 6 weeks. Over the course of your treatments, you will notice gradual correction and improvement of your contours. Following each injection you will need to perform post procedure massage, at Beauty Fix we include this as part of your service. You will be scheduled for you first post-procedure massage 7-10 days following your treatment. This process will help to accelerate the results, as well as ensure the area is smooth. If you are unable to return to the office not to worry, our beauty experts will show you how to perform this massage at home.
Does it hurt?
We add local anesthetic, lidocaine, to the Sculptra mix before we use it making the treatment very comfortable.Overall, there is minimal discomfort for the patient following the procedure. Any typical daily activities should not be affected. The final results take between six weeks to three months to appear.
Like all injections, temporary swelling and bruising may occur.Bruising tends to happen in the treatment area and can take up to two weeks to resolve itself. To help avoid this we recommend you start taking Arnica Montana as well as avoiding aspirin, ibuprofen, and omega fish oils a week or two prior to injection.
Am I a good candidate?
The exact areas to be treated with Sculptra and the amount of vials needed vary from patient to patient; this does depend on your unique aesthetic goals. The consultation process willensure that we address your individual needs.
