Hello Younger Skin and Facial Rejuvenation!

Sculptra Treatment in Scottsdale Arizona

With age, your skin’s natural collagen supply decreases and you may start to notice wrinkles and facial aging. Activate your skin’s natural regenerative process with Sculptra Aesthetic and help replenish lost collagen. This FDA approved injectable restores facial volume without looking like you’ve had work done.

If you want to appear more youthful without looking like you have had work done, then Sculptra Aesthetic may be a great choice for you. As a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, Sculptra Aesthetic helps restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin to diminish facial wrinkles. Sculptra Aesthetic works with your body within the deep dermis to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume. As the Sculptra Aesthetic PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production.

Rebuilt collagen strands begin gradually helping to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds that can last up to 2-5 years.

Post-Treatment Care

To sustain the effects of your Sculptra injections, it’s critical to adhere to post-treatment instructions.

What to do post-treatment

  • Wash the area twice daily with a mild cleanser.
  • Use an ice pack or cold compress to ease discomfort and swelling. Do this numerous times per day for 10 minutes at a time.
  • For the first 24 hours, stay away from intense activities because they can worsen inflammation.
  • For at least four weeks after your treatment, go outside using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.

what not to do post-treatment

  • Ibuprofen and aspirin should not be taken as they can worsen bruising and swelling.
  • For at least four weeks after treatment, avoid putting the treated area in the sun’s direct rays.
  • For at least one month following treatment, avoid using retinoids, exfoliants, or face peels on the treated region.
  • Avoid picking, rubbing, scratching, or massaging the area as this could irritate it.

The results of your Sculptra treatment will be as long-lasting and natural-looking as possible if you adhere to these simple post-treatment instructions. Contact your physician if you have any queries or worries about the aftercare. They will be able to give you more advice and direction on how to take care of your skin following the procedure.

The number of vials used and the amount of treatment sessions can vary from patient to patient due to the amount of volume loss and desired results. Our providers will give you a clear treatment plan and cost with a complimentary consultation.
