Sculptra is a unique FDA-approved poly-l-lactic-acid-based injectable treatment that has been used in the U.S. since 2009. It’s used to rebuild and replenish natural facial collagen, which can help restore structure to the face. Getting Sculptra in Boca Raton can fill in wrinkles while making your skin smoother and thicker.
Unlike facial plastic surgery procedures, Sculptra creates subtle and natural change over time. It is effective in adding volume to the face, restoring the fullness that is lost as one ages.
What Is Sculptra?
Lipoatrophy is a natural process where the body’s fat layer slowly dissipates as a result of aging. This also leads to the loss of collagen protein, which is the primary reason for loose wrinkled skin. If you want to avoid a hollow or gaunt face and continue aging gracefully, Sculptra may be just for you.
This minimally invasive injectable dermal filler product is designed to get rid of moderate and harsh facial wrinkles. Examples include the nasolabial folds, parentheses lines, and marionette lines. By encouraging the facial tissues to create collagen, Sculptra smooths away these age lines.
What Is a Sculptra Butt Lift?
A Sculptra butt lift can help add plumpness and perkiness to your backside. This is achieved by using a diluted version of Sculptra and injecting it into the buttocks. The Sculptra butt lift works best when paired with proper diet and exercise. It helps you pull off a fuller and rounder backside without undergoing a Brazilian butt lift or buttocks augmentation with implants.
How Does Sculptra Work?
Sculptra is a clear gel made of poly-L-lactic acid, a chemical substance that prompts the increased production of fibroblasts (the cells that create collagen in the deep dermal skin layer).As new fibroblasts develop, the amount of collagen in the skin gradually rises over about two to six months. The poly-L-lactic acid is absorbed by the body in about a year, but the effects of Sculptra can last for two years or more.
Am I a Good Candidate for Sculptra?
Sculptra works well on every skin type and tone, but it may not be suitable for everyone. The following conditions may disqualify you from being a candidate:
- You have recently used a blood thinner or anticoagulant.
- You have a bleeding disorder.
- You are pregnant or breastfeeding.
- You are allergic to any of the ingredients in Sculptra.
Your Sculptra Consultation
The first step to getting a Sculptra treatment is booking an initial consultation with a trained expert. During your consultation, you will need to provide a full medical history and discuss any allergies or medical issues you may have. This is also where it’s determined whether local anesthesia is required prior to injection.
In addition to medical history, you will need to disclose if you’re taking any prescription or over-the-counter medications, along with any herbal or dietary supplements. You will then be advised about the best approach for your specific needs.
What Is a Sculptra Treatment Session Like?
The first step in a Sculptra procedure is to determine the injection grid—this is because the filler needs to be injected laterally across a part of the skin. An anesthetic will then be used so that the patient doesn’t feel any pain during the injections.
Once the anesthetic starts kicking in, the skincare expert will begin to inject the product into the targeted regions. The procedure can typically take less than half an hour depending on the number of injections needed.
Another great thing about Sculptra is that downtime and recovery time will not be necessary. While minimal side effects may appear, such as swelling, redness, and bruising, they only last for a few days, and you won’t have a problem returning to work or your daily schedule.
You can use an ice pack to reduce the bruising and swelling, and you’ll also want to avoid sun and UV lamp exposure until initial redness and swelling are gone.
How Much Does Sculptra Cost?
The cost of Sculptra depends on a few factors, such as:
- The amount of correction needed
