If you are looking for info on Sculptra treatment and what you can do to improve your results, keep reading.
Sculptra injections are unlike other dermal fillers in that the results are gradual and last for a much longer time than most anti-ageing injections. They actually increase collagen so you look younger but not in that fake, no expression way.
Over the course of your Sculptra treatment, which is an average of three injection sessions over the course of a few months, you will see your younger looking face through gradual collagen replacement. When you meet with your doctor, you will determine what results and timeline can be expected from your personal treatment.
Immediately after each of your Sculptra injection sessions, you will likely experience swelling in the region of the injections which will give you a good idea of how you will look towards the end of the treatment. It’s a sneak preview of your results once the smile lines are smoothed over. The mild swelling will generally go away within a few days and your wrinkles will temporarily reappear. Don’t worry, the gradual collagen replacement is still going on under the surface! You may begin to see wrinkles diminishing within a few weeks of the treatment sessions.
Your doctor will customise the right Sculptra treatment plan for your face so that you look younger, naturally. You can read more about this by clicking here.
Sculptra Aftercare Tips
Here are a few tips to prepare for before your first Sculptra injection treatment.
- Have an ice pack ready – within the first 24 hours post-treatment, have a cloth wrapped ice pack ready to apply to the treated area. Leave the wrapped ice-pack on treated areas for a few minutes at a time and don’t place the ice pack directly on the skin.
- Facial Massages – massage the treated area a few times every day for several days. Your doctor will give you detailed instructions on this.
- Avoid the Sun- stay away from the sun and UV exposure as much as you can until all swelling and redness has gone down after treatment.
