Sculptra is known as the “Liquid Facelift” for a reason – it is the only thing that can be used to shape and create major changes in facial structure that lasts for over 2 ½ years. Sculptra is used in areas where other fillers simply won’t make a significant difference, mainly in the overall outer and inner structure of the face. It is made of Poly-L-Lactic acid, the main ingredient in dissolvable sutures, and therefore allergic reactions are extremely rare. This substance, made into a liquid, lets your body form its own natural collagen in the areas where it is injected.
You may not think about volume loss in the temples and sides of your face. Instead, you may be used to looking only at your midface area. But over the years, depressions in these areas can change your entire look. You will be amazed at the improvement that only this technique can have!
After Sculptra injection you will look fantastic for a few days before the liquid part of the injections dissolve. For the first five days you will massage the areas injected for five minutes, five times a day. Then it’s time to wait a few months while your body forms its own collagen in those areas. Sculptra is usually injected in 2 – 3 sessions, with one or two vials each time, around 6 – 8 weeks apart. The results are fantastic – you won’t believe the difference it makes!
