Just how much do you love the confidence boost you obtain from a fresh cut and color at the salon? It generates your own hair feel light, bouncy and alive. And we don’t think hard about ensuring we get those haircuts at regular intervals. But how about the skin? As we age, we lose volume in our face. We get cellulite on our thighs and buttocks. We get those dreaded wrinkles. Perhaps you have thought about making wrinkle and cellulite treatment part of your regular skin maintenance?
Sculptra, a dermal filler that stimulates our personal collagen production, could be the response to these skin dilemmas. Clinical trial results have shown that cellulite treatment with Sculptra lasts at the least 25 months.
What’s Sculptra and what will 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. This helps restore your fat tissue loss, which reduces the looks of folds and wrinkles. Sculptra increases the collagen slowly over weeks and months to complete lost volume.
Sculptra also improves the texture of your skin. As we age and lose elasticity, we accept a “crepe-y” look. Sculptra increases the quantity of collagen and elastin in the skin. With the proper injection technique, we are able to restore the anatomical proportions of your face to give a younger appearance. Clients cannot believe how much smoother and suppler their skin feels after just a couple of treatments.
With 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 use a thin, 25-gauge needle to inject Sculptra superficially underneath the skin or deeply on the surface of the bone to stimulate collagen production. The task takes about one hour with little to no downtime. You are able to go directly to your regular activates after your appointment.
Bear in mind that Sculptra builds with time so you won’t see instant results compared to hyaluronic acid fillers (such as Restyline™ or Juviderm™). It’s long-lasting (two years or more) but initially requires between 2 and 4 cellulite treatments. We usually inject two vials of Sculptra for the first visit. The final amount is decided by your particular case.
For cellulite treatment, we insert the needle to the deep dermis at the precise location of the cellulite. The filler is injected through the fibrous bands that creates dimpling. As Sculptra stimulates collagen production, dimpled skin is smoothed.
The same as your regular hair appointments, cellulite treatment with Sculptra is better done 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.
If you are buying a wrinkle or cellulite treatment that will make you look more youthful without dramatic changes, Sculptra filler for hands could be the answer. Helping you look and feel your best is what we strive for at Luminous You.
