Are you noticing the loss of youthful volume in your face or other areas of your body? To reverse these effects, a fat transfer can be performed to achieve an attractive, youthfully plump appearance. However, for patients who are not ready for surgery, dermal fillers are often used. Sculptra is a unique dermal filler that provides dramatic results that last for up to two years.
Will Sculptra injections hurt?
Sculptra injections are generally not considered to be particularly painful. Patients describe the feeling of a slight pinch, the same or similar feeling that you would have when you get a shot at a doctor’s office.
How should I prepare for Sculptra injections?
Generally, there is not much preparation required for Sculptra injections. Don’t tan in the sun or a tanning bed, and don’t drink alcohol for 24 hours before your appointment.
After treatment, how should I care for my skin?
Avoid direct contact with the sun, drinking, sauna or steam room treatments for a day after your injections. Most patients don’t require any special care after Sculptra and can typically care for their skin as they usually would.
