Sculptra: A new concept in filler injection has been highly popular worldwide. Instead of the traditional concept where a filler is injected only where a wrinkle is most obvious, Sculptra PLLA collagen stimulator injection helps to trigger your body’s own mechanisms to generate new collagen. This targets aging skin at the root: diminishing collagen. What it means to you is that the change is not just in reduction of a specific wrinkle or groove, but in an overall rejuvenation of the entire face.
Where are the areas that Sculptra PLLA will be useful?
In general, if one desires a more rejuvenated face, we would advise injection to the following areas:
Temples, forehead, cheeks, laugh lines, chin. This will give you the overall improvement, resulting in a balanced, refreshed effect.
Is the process painful?
PLLA is premixed with a pain killer to minimize any discomfort during and after the injection. Our patients report, to their pleasant surprise, that the procedure was almost painless.
Will I notice the difference immediately?
Immediately after the injection of PLLA, you will notice that the skin is slightly swollen. This will subside over the next few weeks. This is when your body gets to work generating new collagen. Within 2 months, you should notice an improvement to your face and skin: more refreshed, fuller skin tone that can only be described as youthful.
Can I return to work immediately?
You may return to work and social activities, although we advise avoiding strenuous activities for 3 days. There is no downtime associated with PLLA injection, except for the occasional bruising that may last up to 1 week.
How many sessions do I need and how long do the results last?
In general, depending on the severity of aging and the desired effect, you will need 2 to 3 sessions over 6 months. The results that are achieved will last 2 years on average. Speak to us about Sculptra today. Call 6735-8180 now to make an appointment.
