As we age, our skin loses elasticity and fat which can result in the formation of visible wrinkles, lines, and folds. There are several treatment options to treat this problem and Sculptra is one of them. Sculptra treats facial folds and wrinkles and gives the face a more youthful appearance. At Healy Plastic Surgery, we have helped numerous women and men regain confidence in their appearance by providing them with beautiful results from their Restylane treatment in Hawaii.
How Does it Work?
Sculptra is an injectable dermal filler and the main ingredient is poly-L-lactic acid which is known as a collagen stimulator. Sculptra use results in natural and long-lasting results for up to two years. After Sculptra treatments, patients have a softer and youthful appearance. Results are almost immediate, and improved results will continue to develop over time.
What to Expect from Your Sculptra Treatment?
Dr. Healy will ask about your medical history, allergies, and your expectations. He will provide information on the procedure and what you can expect. The number of injections required to achieve your desired look will also be discussed during this time.
On the day of the procedure, Dr. Healy will prepare your skin and mark the areas where the injections will be made. Topical anesthesia is applied to minimize discomfort. Sculptra is then injected at multiple sites based on the facial mapping. There is no downtime with this procedure, and you can resume regular activities immediately.
Areas Where Sculptra Can Be Used
In most cases, Sculptra is used to address facial folds and wrinkles. It has also received FDA approval for treating smile lines and wrinkles around the nose and chin. During your consultation, dr. Healy can examine the areas of your face that you would like to address and can let you know if Restylane or another dermal filler is the right choice for you.
Things to Consider
After your Sculptra injections in Hawaii, expect some swelling and bruising at the injection site. These issues will be mild and should subside quickly.
Dr. Healy will suggest doing the following to speed up the recovery process:
- Use a cold pack on the injection sites to reduce swelling.
- You will have to stay out of the sun and not use tanning beds till the redness and swelling have subsided completely.
Results from Sculptra treatments develop gradually and it will take 8 weeks to see the full results. Sculptra is an FDA-approved dermal filler and highly effective in stimulating collagen production. Get your treatments from a trained practitioner so that you do not have complications and get the best possible results.
