Read till the end to get a complete understanding about all things Sculptra from the experts so you can make an informed decision on whether to get this treatment or not.
What Is Sculptra?
Sculptra is a type of dermal filler which helps restore lost volume and helps to “contour” certain parts of the face by “filling” them.
With poly-L-lactic acid as its main ingredient this gel-like substance also promises more than just volume restoration by being injected to “fill” areas as it also goes ahead to help the skin’s regenerative process by stimulating collagen production.
Collagen is a protein found in the body and skin that serves the purpose of keeping us young by maintaining skin firmness to stop sagging and this makes Sculptra a youth restoring injectable with natural effects.
How Does Sculptra Work?
After a successful consultation with your practitioner where things such as your medical history and goals for the treatment are discussed then your treatment can begin.
During your treatment Sculptra which is a safe gel-like substance will be injected into the area where you want to restore youth and volume.
The whole process of injection lasts no more than 30 minutes, and although it is injected into your skin you can expect to feel little to no pain because your practitioner will use the necessary techniques to ensure the process is pain free for you.
Once injected Sculptra goes to work by helping your skin produce more collagen naturally for skin tightening and anti-ageing benefits in the areas where it has been injected.
What Areas Of The Face Can Sculptra Be Used On?
Sculptra focuses on the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles in many areas of the face, but it can also be used for other parts of the body like the butt for a nonsurgical butt lift.
The face areas where Sculptra works best to treat wrinkles, restore volume loss, and trigger collagen formation include:
- Laugh lines
- Under eyes
- Temples (side of the head)
After treating many clients with Sculptra we can say these are the areas where Sculptra can be used on the face for great results depending on your goals.
How Long Does Sculptra Last?
The results of facial contouring, and volume restoration gotten from the injection of Sculptra last a minimum of 2 years.
The long-lasting results which Sculptra provides makes it one of the best and most recommended dermal filler options.
After 2 years you can expect results to still be natural looking, collagen boosted, and you can also enjoy the results for another 2 years without the effects of Sculptra wearing off.
Depending on the client, Sculptra could last 4 years but the least amount of time to enjoy your results is 2 years based on the results of many clients.
Is Sculptra Safe?
We understand if safety is a concern for you, and it is important you prioritize safety especially when it comes to cosmetic procedures.
Safety is something VLine Cosmetic Clinic prioritizes for its clients, and if Sculptra wasn’t safe we wouldn’t be recommending it or currently using it to help many clients who are over 30 regain a youthful attractive appearance.
You may not want to take our word for it and that’s fine, with that in mind you should know that Sculptra is not only safe from the experience of multiple clients and injectors, but it is also approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a safe form of dermal filler.
With that said you need to have no worries about the safety of your health or long term “side effects” when using Sculptra.
Does Sculptra Hurt?
Getting Sculptra injected is a procedure that may look painful especially if you are scared of needles, but it doesn’t really hurt, although some people are more sensitive to pain than others.
Sculptra has an anaesthetic in it which makes you “numb” to any pain, and this is another reason you are guaranteed to not feel any pain.
How Many Sculptra Treatments Are Needed for Optimal Results?
3 treatment (injection) sessions are required to see the best result, but this is not always the case as your practitioner could advise you to go for more or less treatment sessions after your initial consultation. This is why getting a consultation before your treatment is essential for enabling your practitioner to know and discuss what is best for you.
The 3 treatment sessions that are often recommended are spaced between 3 or more weeks, so you can expect the total completion of your treatment to take 9 to 12 weeks.
After each treatment session your practitioner will remind you of what to expect as previously discussed during your consultation, and if you are ready for a consultation feel free to call VLine Cosmetic Clinic on +1 905 597 6338.
What Is The Recovery Time After Sculptra?
Downtime in cosmetic procedures usually means the length of time or number of days you need to stay home after getting treatment, and just like most cosmetic treatments that don’t require surgery Sculptra comes with no downtime.
After getting Sculptra injections you don’t need to schedule time off work or miss important events because you want to “recover”.
Results of your Sculptra treatment will be seen after a few weeks of your injection, and these results will become more noticeable over the next few months.
Who Is A Good Candidate For Sculptra?
People of all genders, races, and ages are welcome to experience the volume and youth restoring benefits of Sculptra, but it has been noticed that this treatment is more common for people who are over 30 and are beginning to suffer from saggy skin due to poor collagen stimulation, and people over 40 who are currently experiencing volume loss in areas of the face.
Sculptra is also available to everyone over 18 as it can be used in combination with other cosmetic treatments for a better overall look and as a way to achieve your beauty goals no matter what they are.
How Much Does Sculptra Cost In Canada?
The cost of getting a Sculptra treatment in most cosmetic clinics and medical spas in Canada ranges between $1,100 to $1,300 per treatment, and most clients require 3 treatments which comes to an average price of $3,000 (with discounts) for a complete treatment, but the results are often well worth it lasting over 2 years and stimulating collagen for a younger, plumper, and well-contoured look.
