Simply how much do you like the confidence boost you get from a fresh cut and color at the salon? It generates your hair feel light, bouncy and alive. And we don’t think twice about ensuring we get those haircuts at regular intervals. But how about your skin layer? Once we age, we lose volume inside our face. We get cellulite on our thighs and buttocks. We get those dreaded wrinkles. Have you considered making wrinkle and cellulite treatment part of one’s regular skin maintenance?
Sculptra, a dermal filler that stimulates our own collagen production, will be the response to these skin dilemmas. Clinical trial results demonstrate that cellulite treatment with Sculptra lasts at the least 25 months.
What’s Sculptra and what will it improve?
Sculptra is an FDA-approved biodegradable, biocompatible synthetic filler that’ll replace lost collagen, bone, and fat tissue. It is a Poly-L-Lactic collagen stimulator (PLLA), just like dissolvable sutures. This helps restore your fat tissue loss, which reduces the appearance of folds and wrinkles. Sculptra increases the collagen slowly over weeks and months to complete lost volume.
Sculptra also improves the texture of one’s skin. Once we age and lose elasticity, we accept a “crepe-y” look. Sculptra increases the quantity of collagen and elastin in the skin. With the proper injection technique, we could restore the anatomical proportions of that person to give a younger appearance. Clients cannot believe just how much smoother and suppler their skin feels after just a couple treatments.
As time passes, Sculptra can improve:
- Lost volume in cheeks and temples
- Nasolabial folds, also called laugh lines
- “Marionette” lines
- Undefined jawline
- Asymmetrical face
So what can I expect during and after wrinkle and cellulite treatment?
We work with a thin, 25-gauge needle to inject sculptra fillers for cellulite superficially underneath your skin or deeply on top of the bone to stimulate collagen production. The task takes about an hour with little to no downtime. You are able to go directly to your regular activates after your appointment.
Keep in mind that Sculptra builds as time passes so you won’t see instant results in comparison to hyaluronic acid fillers (such as Restyline™ or Juviderm™). It is long-lasting (two years or more) but initially requires between 2 and 4 cellulite treatments. We usually inject two vials of Sculptra for the first visit. The final amount is determined by your particular case.
For cellulite treatment, we insert the needle to the deep dermis at the located area of the cellulite. The filler is injected through the fibrous bands that induce dimpling. As Sculptra stimulates collagen production, dimpled skin is smoothed.
The same as your regular hair appointments, cellulite treatment with Sculptra is better done with maintenance appointments every 12 months to make sure collagen is continuing to be produced.
Sculptra exhibits even better and long-lasting results when combined with your other treatments like PRP.
If you’re buying wrinkle or cellulite treatment that will make you look more youthful without dramatic changes, Sculptra may be the answer. Helping you look and feel your very best is what we strive for at Luminous You.
