Has your skin lost its natural, plump fullness due to illness or aging? Do you have deep lines or creases that make you look older than you feel? Would you like to regain a youthful look that lasts? The specialists at Ideal Body Institute recommend Sculptra, a collagen-stimulator that can last up to two years.
What makes Sculptra different from some other anti-aging treatments?
Wrinkles, creases, or lines in your skin the results of the loss of hyaluronic acid or collagen, substances that create fullness and volume in the skin, that naturally diminish as you age. Many anti-aging treatments are gels injected to fill and lift aging skin. Over a short span of months, most fillers naturally decrease, with the lines and wrinkles reappearing. Sculptra is different. It is a collagen stimulator that works to restore the inner structure of your skin. Sculptra’s results occur gradually, and are longer-lasting than most dermal fillers, giving you a softer, more youthful look that lasts.
How is Sculptra different from other fillers?
Sculptra is FDA-approved to correct facial wrinkles and lines. While many facial fillers are hyaluronic acid-based, Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic acid, which is both biocompatible and biodegradable – the same substance used in the manufacture of dissolvable stitches. It is injected into the deeper skin layers and works to restore a natural, lifted structure of your skin over time.
What is a Sculptra treatment procedure like at Ideal Body Institute?
After you and your specialist at Ideal Body Institute have discussed your health goals, including allergies or medical conditions, we will cleanse the sites of your injections. Then, to minimize any discomfort we will apply a topical anesthetic and then inject the Sculptra with multiple tiny injections. After your treatment, you can immediately return to your daily activities.
What happens during recovery from a Sculptra treatment?
You may experience some mild side effects from Sculptra, including tenderness, redness, or swelling. While these usually go away within a few days, here are a few tips to help you speed the process:
- Avoid tanning beds or excess sun until redness or swelling has gone away
- Use a cold pack on the impacted areas, a few minutes each time, within the first day
- For the first five days after the treatment, massage the area five times a day for five minutes at a time
