Beautiful skin is something that is of great importance to so many people. As we all age, it becomes apparent that taking care of our skin is of great importance, especially for those intentional about pursuing a youthful appearance. Over time, the natural production of collagen in the body starts to decrease. As collagen production goes down, the skin is not as vibrant as it once was. There’s no way to control each individual person’s collagen production rate, which is unfortunate.
Sculptra is a cosmetic filler with results that some call “miraculous.” As a collagen stimulator, Sculptra works with your body to rejuvenate and rebuild the skin’s foundation. Sculptra has proven to be effective for those combating aging or illness. Sculptra is injected into the skin, usually in areas with deep lines or creases (think forehead wrinkles, laugh lines, furrowed brow marks, and so on), with remarkable results.
Sculptra is also incredibly effective in treating folds caused by sagging skin.
You may wonder, “Why Sculptra?” with many cosmetic injectables available. Sculptra works with your body to enhance what the body was created to do: produce collagen. The science and studies that have been done on those who’ve received a Sculptra treatment show that natural collagen production was up for nearly two years after the treatment. Sculptra has also been effective in combating and correcting cellulite (hello, smoother butt and thighs!), erasing wrinkles around the knees, chest, and elbows, as well as (and yes, you’re reading this correctly) non-surgical butt augmentations and butt lifts. Any place you choose to receive a Sculptra treatment, you’ll notice results immediately but know that the best results are a few months away.
Sculptra tends to be something done in more than one treatment session. The number of treatments needed is determined by the end result you want to achieve. Before treatment is given, you’ll book a consultation. During your consultation, our qualified team will talk through your complete medical history with you to ensure we can make the best treatment plan for you and your body. When treatment time comes, a topical anesthetic will be used to ensure your comfort. Most Majestic Aesthetics and Wellness clients have reported that they didn’t feel pain as much as they were aware of the pressure of the injection into their skin. Sculptra is longer lasting than all other injectables.
Side effects can occur after a Sculptra treatment (which is another reason why sharing your medical history is necessary). It’s more likely than not that you’ll return to your typical day-to-day activity on the same day as treatment. If you were to have a side effect, it could be something like itchiness, bumps, redness, or tenderness. Side effects are mild and resolve within a few days at most. Rest assured that we will equip you with anything you may need if you are someone who experiences a few and far between side effects from your treatment.
We often get a question in the office: “Why is Sculptra so expensive” or “is there a cheaper option than Sculptra”? In short, yes, there is a cheaper option, but the reason Sculptra is more expensive is that it has a longevity period of at least two years and sometimes lasts up to five years. No other filler corrects issues for that amount of time before needing another treatment.
