During your consultation, we will need to discuss any medical conditions you might have that could keep you from getting fillers. And of course, we want to know all about your beauty aspirations. After your consultation, we can set a time to move forward with filler treatments.
After a clinician has thoroughly disinfected the treatment zones, a fine needle will be used to inject Sculptra just below the skin’s surface to improve facial characteristics. Your injectionist may gently massage your skin to ensure optimal smoothness.
Some people experience mild discomfort at most. For our more sensitive patients, we can apply a topical anesthetic to decrease any pain you may encounter.
With time, your body naturally absorbs hyaluronic acid-based fillers. This absorption causes a slow loss of volume in treated areas. Top-up sessions are low volume injections applied to restore previously treated areas to their original beauty. You can extend Sculptra’s life for a few years with continued top-up treatments.
Sculptra customers can usually return to their daily routines immediately after treatment. Many of our patients schedule fillers over lunch breaks. It is possible to experience some tenderness, mild bruising, or possibly some post-treatment swelling. Applying a little ice gently to the treatment area can help to decrease any discomfort. Make sure not to apply ice directly to your skin as it could cause damage.
Sculptra Aesthetic does not contain any human or animal components; thus, no allergy testing is needed before treatment. Reported side effects include injection site pain, redness, bruising, tenderness, itching, lumps, bleeding, or possible swelling.
Yes. There is nothing to preclude you from having a responsible drink after receiving filler injections.
During the first two weeks, you may experience redness, swelling, or bruising. After that short time, your filler treatment will expose your full beauty to the world. Your body will begin to absorb the poly-L-lactic acid filler over time, lessening the injected filler’s original volume. We recommend scheduling a top-up session to restore your procedure’s volume a year or two down the road.
Sculptra filler procedures require very little to no downtime. Your clinician will go over our post-treatment guidelines to ensure your safety and treatment success. It is not unusual for some patients to experience mild discomfort, swelling, bruising, or tenderness post-injection. These symptoms will disappear over the next few weeks.
Sculptra treatments are designed to improve over three treatments spread across a couple of months. The Sculptra Aesthetic regimen can last up to 2 years. But as your body absorbs the poly-L-lactic acid-based filler, you may need a top-up treatment to combat volume loss. These low volume injections keep your treatment looking good as new.
Sculptra Aesthetic is designed to give you noticeable results that emerge steadily over time. Don’t be disappointed if you don’t see immediate results, as this is normal and temporary. The Sculptra Aesthetic regimen stealthy delivers its complete results with an average of three treatment sessions over a few months. Only you will know why you are always looking younger.
