Sculptra™ Facial Rejuvenation
Sculptra™ is a injected into the skin for restoration and/or correction of facial fat loss. It consists of a synthetic material known as poly-l-lactic acid, which is biocompatible (a material that does not harm the body) and biodegradable (able to be broken down by the body). Poly-L-lactic acid has been used for many years in dissolvable stitches, soft tissue implants & other types of implants.
Sculptra™ provides a gradual increase in skin thickness, with visible results appearing within the first few treatment sessions. At the first treatment, it may appear that Sculptra™ worked immediately because of the swelling from the injections and the water used to dilute Sculptra™. In a few days, once swelling subsides, the treated area may look as it did before the injections. Sculptra™ takes time to gradually correct the depressions in the skin. You will need to follow-up with the Doctor in a few weeks to see if more injections are needed.
The most common side effects with Sculptra™ include injection-related side effects at the site, such as bleeding, tenderness or pain, swelling, redness or bruising. These side effects can last 3-17 days.
The results from Sculptra™ treatment can last up to 2 years, with possible touch-ups to maintain the desired effect."
