Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA approved anti-aging treatment that helps replace lost collagen in the skin. As our skin ages, we begin to notice things like loss of firmness and elasticity along with an increase in wrinkles and sagging. Most of these changes are due to decreasing levels of collagen. Collagen makes up a vast majority of the skin’s structure and with even a small deterioration, signs of aging begin to show. Kora Aesthetics specializes in the top solutions to help restore the skin’s health and youthful appearance which is why we love Sculptra!
Sculptra Aesthetic provides long lasting skin rejuvenation results for up to two years. Sculptra Aesthetic works by stimulating your own body’s natural collagen production process. Results appear gradually as restored facial volume is generated by your own collagen growth. Sculptra is used to add youthful fullness and back to the skin and combat age-related volume loss. Sculptra results include firmer, tighter skin, and an improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, sagging skin and shadows in the face.
The Sculptra can help with the following conditions and areas:
Unlike other dermal fillers, Sculptra may be injected in several areas on the face. Another disadvantage of other fillers is that you can only use them on specific areas on the face, such as the eyes or just the cheeks.
Sculptra injections, unlike other fillers, can be used on all areas of your face, including:
- Cheeks and cheekbones on your face
- Areas around the nose
- Areas around the mouth
- Around the chin area
- Under-eye areas
Sculptra Aesthetic is a filler that promotes new collagen formation, restoring lost natural volume over time. Sculptra Aesthetic Therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that works gradually. Outcomes can range from 6 weeks to 3 months.
The number of Sculptra treatments you may need will vary based on your requirements and needs. Typically, one to three treatments are required, four to six weeks apart.
Sculptra Aesthetic has been cleared by the FDA and is intended to last two years. A patient who has had three treatments is likely to experience a better result than someone who has only received one.
There might be some slight swelling, redness, and bruising, which are are all possible side effects. It is perfectly acceptable to resume normal activities once you are entirely comfortable with your appearance.
Sculptra procedure usually uses Lidocaine as a numbing agent. Minor soreness is to be expected. Numbing injections and vibration are used to alleviate pain and discomfort.
The injection may cause tenderness, redness, itching, bruising, and swelling. The majority of these side effects go away on their own within three to seven days without the need for any treatment. Bruises take anywhere from three to fourteen days to heal in rare cases.
Immediately following your procedure, there may be some swelling in the region where you received treatment, making it look like more volume. However, the swelling should go down in a few days, making it seem as if you didn’t get any treatment at all. In the weeks following, the body will begin to create collagen. After approximately three weeks, most individuals notice a difference. Results will gradually improve over the following three months.
