What Is Sculptra?

by | Aug 25, 2015

Hi everyone, I hope you are all having a great week so far are spending some much deserved leisure time with your friends and loved ones. For today’s topic, I would like to talk about a relatively quick and convenient aesthetic treatment known as Sculptra.
Although it does not take long to administer, results may take some time before it becomes visible. If you are short on time and simply want a quick procedure done, this is the treatment for you.
How Does It Work?
What Sculptra does is to restore your skin’s youthfulness and appearance; this is done by triggering your body into producing fresh collagen in your skin. Collagen is a natural substance which is essential to your skin renewing itself and repairing any damage caused to it. New skin layers use collagen as building blocks, so Sculptra acts as an agent to kickstart the entire healing or recovery process.

An initial consultation will help to determine if Sculptra is a suitable treatment for you. Your doctor will outline and discuss a potential treatment area with you during this time. As Sculptra is a substance that is injectable, it will then be administered to the area outlined by your doctor. In addition to triggering your body into producing collagen, it will also fill up and contour areas where fatty tissue has diminished over the years.

The procedure is swiftly completed in a few minutes, with the substance injected into the deeper skin layers. Injections are also mixed together with a numbing medicine called licodaine to ensure that there is no discomfort at all during the procedure. It is a safe medicine that is designed to prevent any pain during treatment.

Most people only require two sessions of treatment, but this is dependent on your skin condition as well as the desired result. This will also be discussed during consultation.
Bear in mind that Sculptra injections are not suitable for those with autoimmune diseases such as lupus or arthritis.
What Can It Treat?

Sculptra is suitable for wrinkles and fine lines, which is the first sign of aging. As your skin becomes visibly drier and less elastic over time, wrinkles and fine lines begin to form because the skin has lost its ability to snap back into place. Creases and folds will begin to form, which then leads to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. Additional factors that contribute to this include overexposure to the sun, dehydration and smoking.

Facial contouring can also be done using Sculptra, which will help to shape your face to become slimmer in profile, giving it an oval- or V-shape. It is a popular treatment amongst Asians, with the slimmer facial profile enhancing your youthful appearance. In addition, the skin also becomes healthier as it is rejuvenated. Many people with jawlines that appear square-shaped or more masculine opt for this treatment, while cheeks can also be slimmed down with the same method.
