As we get older, and as fat deposits start to make their mark on our bodies, we work hard to lose weight and trim that fat. We anticipate the fat to be removed from our stomach and thighs, but we never plan for the fat to be taken away from our face. When that happens we are left with a thin face, sunken cheeks and cheekbones. Windermere Dental & Medical Spa have a way to naturally fill out sunken areas such as cheeks, temples and around the mouth. Using Sculptra Aesthetics, Windermere Dental & Medical Spa can take years off your face in a natural-looking way without the use of surgery or lasers. We are proud to offer Sculptra Aesthetics, one of the world’s leading options for the face, chest, hands and butt.
WHAT IS SCULPTRA AESTHETIC?
Sculptra Aesthetic is a solution that naturally increases the production of collagen. When added to the face, chest, hands or butt it can bring out a fresher, brighter and more youthful you. Unlike some of its competition, Sculptra doesn’t overfill your face. Sculptra is not a dermal filler, it is injectable poly-L-lactic acid and indicated for use in people with healthy immune systems as a single regimen for the correction of shallow to deep folds, contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles in which deep dermal grid pattern injection is appropriate.
SCULPTRA CAN HELP WITH:
- Hollow cheeks and sunken temples
- Jaw contouring
- Nasolabial folds
- Undefined chin
- Chest folds and wrinkles
- The aging hand
- Butt lift and improve the appearance of cellulite
IS SCULPTRA THE SAME AS OTHER DERMAL FILLERS?
No, Sculptra Aesthetic is not a dermal filler but it serves the same purpose as dermal fillers, but it does its job in a different way. Most dermal fillers will replace volume using hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a natural enzyme your body creates that prevents wrinkles and give skin its bouncy nature. Sculptra Aesthetic is made with the same thing our body produces after exercising. The lactic acid works to fill out the cheeks right away, but will eventually be absorbed into the body as your cheeks naturally fill out.
Results will always vary from person to person, but Sculptra has a tendency to last longer than other dermal fillers once the full treatment is completed, sometimes even lasting for 2 full years.
WHO SHOULD USE SCULPTRA?
The first step to figuring out if Sculptra is the right choice for you is to talk with a member of our medical team. During this consultation, we will determine if any of Sculptra’s ingredients pose an allergy risk.
If no allergy risk is found, then Sculptra is perfect for the person who is looking to give a plump, natural look without wanting surgery.
WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE LIKE?
Once we’ve determined that this is the right procedure for you, the first thing we’ll do is pinpoint the spots for injection. Pain is a big worry for people, so each injection includes Lidocaine, a local anesthetic that brings each injection down to just a slight pinprick. At Windermere Dental & Medical Spa we use a special technique to decrease injection points, swelling, pain and bruising. Call us today to learn more about our unique techniques.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER SCULPTRA TREATMENT?
You will see immediate results that only get better with time.
Immediately after treatment, you may feel some pressure, swelling or redness around the injection sites. It’s also recommended that you don’t spend significant time in the sun or exercising.
You will need a few appointments throughout the next couple months to complete the Sculptra series. We’ll create a schedule during your consultation; typically we recommend 2- 3 treatments over the course of six months. To maintain the best results we recommend 1 treatment annually. Without annual treatments the results can last up to 2 years.
