GLOW by Elena Reitman MD offers — Sculptra — a simple yet powerful non-surgical skin procedure that restores the volume, lifts the skin,and smooths facial wrinkles.
Sculptra is the only FDA approved injectable with poly-L-lactic acid ((PLLA) collagen stimulator that works deep in the skin to improve its inner structure and smooth facial wrinkles.
The lasting results are so astonishing that it’s one of the best anti-aging treatments.
A More Natural Look
One of the main advantages of Sculptra is that it subtly and gradually improves the appearance of wrinkles and hollow areas of the face.
Compared to traditional fillers, which usually provide more immediate results, Sculptra takes several weeks to show its full effect –resulting in a natural-looking, age-defying skin.
This safe and non-invasive injectable treatment can be used in different areas on the face, such as the cheeks, smile lines, temples, jawline and chin. Sculptra is great for people who want to restore volume and achieve a lift in a less invasive way.
Sculptra treatments are typically administered in a series of three over a period of time. The actual procedure itself is fairly quick and easy with only minimal discomfort or downtime.
Sculptra Aesthetic is designed to target the deep dermis, stimulating the growth of lost collagen.
Over time collagen production rebuilds the skin’s structure and helps patients regain a more youthful appearance.
It's made from poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, known to have beneficial effects of up to 2 years.
It takes several months to properly absorb and begin promoting the patient's own collagen stimulation. However even after initial treatment,patients may start seeing positive results. Full results start taking effect in a few months - reaching maximum improvement that could last up to 2 years.
For optimal results, most patients need three treatments followed by an annual maintenance for sustained results.
Treatments are catered specifically for each individual as some may need more product than others. After each injection session, collagen produced from Sculptra will result in improvements that cannot be matched with most other injectable products on the market today.
Sculptra is a minimally invasive treatment option to help individuals achieve their aesthetic goals.
It is administered in a series of treatments with the exact number of treatments varying from patient to patient according to their unique needs and objectives for the desired outcome.
There is no extensive preparation needed prior to the session and the treatment itself takes relatively little time with minimal discomfort and bruising.
The amount of injections depends on the size of the area being treated. It is normal for some redness, swelling and tenderness in the target area. This discomfort will diminish naturally over a few days.
The exact length of a Sculptra treatment session can vary depending on the area being treated and the desired results.
Most Sculptra sessions take between 15 minutes to an hour, multiple treatments sometimes are necessary to achieve the best results.
Patients may also experience some swelling or bruising after the procedure, which should fade after a few days.
The patients are encouraged to massage the treated areas for the next 5 days.
While traditional fillers are known for providing almost instantaneous results, Sculptra does something a little different.
It can take several weeks for the elastin and collagen production process to take full effect. This actually helps ensure a more natural end result without an "overdone" look.
The biggest benefit of Sculptra is in its ability to encourage collagen production within your own body.
This is what sets it apart from other forms of filler injections and leads to natural-looking, longer-lasting results.
Sculptraypically lasts between 12-24 months.
UV exposure can decrease the longevity of Sculptra, so patients should take extra care to protect their skin from sun damage if undergoing the treatment.
The amount of product used during the treatment can also influence how long the results last; a higher volume of product usually leads to longer lasting results.
Regular touch-ups after initial Sculptra treatments may be necessary in order to maintain the optimal results
While it is generally safe and effective, there are some potential side effects and risks associated with Sculptra injection.
Possible side effects of Sculptra treatments include redness, swelling, tenderness in the injection site, or bruising.
Less common but more serious side effects can include nodules or bumps under the skin at the injection site. However, with proper dilution, the chances of this happening is significantly reduced.
It is recommended that patients receiving Sculptra procedure wait at least three to four weeks between treatments.
Patients should also avoid certain activities such as lying down for several hours after treatment or exercising for the first 24 hours in order to minimize bruising.
How Many Sessions are Needed?
A series of three sessions spaced 4 weeks apart is recommended for those looking to achieve long-term results from Sculptra injections.
The number of treatment sessions necessary for optimal results with Sculptra will vary from person to person, depending on the specific areas being treated and the desired outcome.
Most patients report best results after two or three sessions, but some may need more depending on their desired results.
The beneficial effects of Sculptra can last for up to two years if properly maintained.
