Sculptra

What it does:

  • Sculptra Aesthetic helps your body to regrow your own collagen over an extended period…like coral reefs are formed.

Where they can be used:

  • Deep folds between the nose and the mouth (nasolabial folds) also called smile lines

  • The lines framing your mouth (marionette lines)

  • Chin wrinkles

  • Sunken temples

  • Flattened cheekbones

Effects:

  • After the initial two to three sets of injections every 6 weeks, Sculptra can last up to 25 months

Precautions:

As with most injections, patients should avoid aspirin or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, e.g. Advil, Vitamin E, ginseng, garlic, and alcoholic beverages 48 hours prior to treatment as they will increase the risk of bruising at the injection site. Results and longevity of the product are highly dependent on the above pre-treatment precautions and proper aftercare.
