Skinjectables® Is Your Sculptra® Destination In Tucson, Arizona
If you have love gardening, you’re going to love Sculptra®! It is the only injectable treatment that gives you subtle results over time through a process a lot like “fertilizing” your lawn. Sculptra® is not a filler but rather, it is a re-volumizer. It works by replacing natural volume and restoring skin quality that is lost as we age. Sculptra® stimulates your body to produce its own collagen- this is one of the major benefits of Sculptra® – the volume is all your own! Not only are the results naturally home grown….but they are long lasting (we’re talking years). The best part of your Sculptra® treatment is that you don’t need a green thumb!
Volume loss is one of 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. It’s perfect for mid to lower face revolumization as well as for replacing the prominent volume loss seen in the temples, creating natural contour and lift in the buttocks, minimizing dimpling or cellulite on the thighs, and reducing the creases and lines found on the decollete region.
One of the many advantages of Sculptra® is how long clients experience results. These can last several years with proper maintenance such as prescription quality skincare products like those found in Skinjectables® proprietary skincare line Elixir Rx™. To consistently achieve long-lasting, natural results requires an injector experienced in using a re-volumizer like Sculptra®. All of our providers at Skinjectables® 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 a bio-stimulant in that it stimulates the body to produce it’s own collagen more efficiently over the course of 3-6 months. 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 natural collagen- rather than volume that is reproduced with other fillers.
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 hollowing of the cheeks, chin, or temples. However, Sculptra® can also improve other specialty areas of the face as well as numerous body zones such as the chest, for butt lifting and shaping or cellulite reduction. 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 other modalities such as laser tightening or resurfacing, volume replacement with fillers, and sometimes even surgery if not a personal option. Patience is a must…..this process can be like watching grass grow and it takes time and commitment to the recommended series of treatment.
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 at least twice per day for several minutes each session for 5 days. The normal recommended protocol for the face is 2 vials injected every 6 weeks for 3 treatments with a total of 6-8 vials on average (possibly less based on age and level of correction necessary). This protocol gives our clients the best results and generally full correction that will last several years as seen in the original studies.
HOW WILL I LOOK POST-TREATMENT OF SCULPTRA®?
Immediately following the treatment, most clients are elated to see their crease and wrinkles gone but please note that this initial improvement is due to mild-moderate swelling. 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 resolves significantly and most clients will require another treatment within 4-6 weeks until they have complete the series of 3 treatment sessions on average.
