Skinjectables® Is Your Sculptra Destination In Tucson, Arizona
Sculptra is the first facial injectable treatment that gives you subtle results over time. Sculptra, although frequently referred to as a dermal filler, is actually not a filler but rather, it is a re-volumizer. It works by replacing natural volume and restoring dermal skin thickness that is lost as we age. Sculptra, comprised of poly-L-lactic acid, when injected, stimulates the body to produce its own collagen. This is one of the major benefits of Sculptra – the volume is all your own! In addition to the benefit of having natural intervention, the results are long lasting!
Many people don’t realize that volume loss is frequently the most noticeable sign of aging. Surgeries and lasers do not restore volume. Volume is the cardinal sign of youth, which is why Sculptra is so effective in restoring contour and rejuvenating the face. Perfect for mid to lower face revolumization as wells as for replacing the profound volume loss typically seen in the temples.
Among Sculptra’s many advantages is how long clients experience results. Studies reveal Sculptra can last several years with proper maintenance including prescription quality skincare products like retinoids, antioxidants, AHA acids, growth factors and sunscreen. To consistently achieve long-lasting, natural results requires an injector experienced in using a re-volumizer like Sculptra. All of our providers at Skinjectable’s® Anti-aging Bar are expertly trained in the latest and safest techniques such that our clients obtain results that are consistent and natural looking.
HOW SCULPTRA WORKS:
Sculptra, poly-L-lactic acid, is broken down by the body to carbon dioxide and lactic acid. It comes as a powder in a vial that has to be mixed before being injected into the face, below the skin’s surface. Immediately following the treatment, most clients are elated to see their crease and wrinkles gone. Initial improvement is due to mild-moderate swelling. Once Sculptra is injected, the poly-L-lactic acid stimulates the tissue to produce its own collagen, naturally adding volume to the face. The benefit is that the added volume is actually the patient’s own tissue.
WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR SCULPTRA?
Virtually anyone with volume loss in his or her face is a candidate for treatment with Sculptra. It is also an excellent choice for augmentation of the cheeks, chin, or temples. However, Sculptra can also improve the nasolabial folds and other areas of the lower face. Clients of all age groups can benefit from treatment, but those with more significant skin laxity and volume loss tend to require additional treatments. Many clients choose to undergo treatment with Sculptra as an alternative to surgery, in order to avoid anesthesia and potential complications.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT WITH A SCULPTRA TREATMENT?
Skinjectables® Anti-Aging Bar staff will apply a topical numbing cream prior to treatment. The treatment takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes and involve injections using very small needles or cannulas which are virtually painless due to the numbing cream and our gentle injection technique. Following injection of Sculptra, we massage the area to ensure that it is properly distributed. Clients may return to normal activities immediately after treatment with the only post care instructions being to massage the area twice per day for several minutes each session. The normal recommended protocol is 2 vials injected every 6 weeks for a total of 3 treatments for a total of 5-7 vials total. This protocol gives our clients the best results and generally full correction that will last several years as that was seen in the original studies.
HOW WILL I LOOK POST-TREATMENT OF SCULPTRA?
Most clients look quite normal post-treatment. It is not uncommon to see swelling and bruising, but because Sculptra is injected deeper into the dermis these bruises tend also to be less noticeable. The next few days following injection, the swelling comes down significantly and most clients will require another treatment in a few weeks until they have complete the series of 3 treatment sessions.
