What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is a Poly-L Lactic Acid FDA-approved injectable filler that can smooth deep wrinkles like marionette lines and reverse volume loss that can cause issues like sunken cheeks and chin wrinkles. Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible synthetic material that both adds volume and stimulates new collagen production within the deep dermis, Sculptra is longerlasting than hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers like Juvéderm or Restylane. It’s not recommended for use as a lip or under-eye filler.
Our injectors will work with you to determine the number of treatment sessions needed to achieve the best result. The average regimen consists of three injections spread out over three or four months.
- Schedule your injection at a time when minor swelling or bruising will not disrupt your social
obligations. Each time you are treated, outcomes may vary.
- To lessen the likelihood of bleeding or bruising, discontinue use of blood thinning products for 10 days prior to treatment, if approved by your primary care provider. This includes: aspirin, ibuprofen (Motrin or Advil), naproxen, Aleve, fish oil, St. John's Wort, flax, Vitamin E, Vitamin D, garlic (as a supplement), Ginkgo Biloba, ginseng, etc. Alcohol is also to be avoided 24 hours pre- or post injectable treatment, as it is also a blood thinner. You can consider taking Arnica Montana natural supplement to help bruising.
- Remember your 5s! You must massage your face for 5 minutes 5 times a day for 5 days! Remembering to massage post treatment will help to enhance your results and prevent granulomas forming.
- You may ice the areas treated to help with any discomfort or swelling.
