While Botox is the perfect solution for those who go under the knife, you can only enjoy the benefits for so long. Unless you have the means to visit your plastic surgeon often, you can definitely feel the effects of it on your budget.
Pretty soon, you’ll start to see the fine lines and wrinkles reemerge. You need a type of facial filler that lasts longer, and that’s where Sculptracomes in. This treatment has been available in Europe for many years now, but is relatively new in the United States.
Whereas Botox makes use of a type of poison, Sculptra is made of PLA or Poly-L-Lactive Acid. This substance encourages your own body to produce a thicker type of collagen.
The new collagen then fills in the areas that where gravity has taken over. You do need to save up for this because you will be required to visit your doctor more than once.
You can simply set aside an hour or two each week for a month or two. Your doctor will then inject the substance into the different areas of your face such as your chin, cheeks, and around the eyes.
You will notice a slight swelling at first, but this won’t last long. In fact, you won’t be rendered useless with the pain. And the best part is, you can enjoy the results for as long as two years.
Science has finally proven that you can make use of biodegradable and safe products to make you look and feel young. With Sculptra, you know you won’t suffer any ill-effects.
The small particles are injected in several areas, and then, these are adjusted to make it look completely natural. As collagen under your skin thickens, your face gains the volume it once had when you were young.
While you can use Sculptra in conjunction with other techniques, you can also opt to get it alone. For those who’ve lost so much weight and feel the areas of the skin have sunk, they can also choose to get this procedure. After all, loss of facial fat can add years to your face.
Feel younger and more vibrant with Sculptra. This is a more natural means of plumping your face. In addition to looking younger, you can go as soon as you’ve completed the series of injections.
The sessions will entirely depend on how much you need to fill, but generally, you will need to visit your surgeon three to six times. Plus, Sculptra is performed with only the use of a topical or local anesthetic.
Hence, you won’t need to contend with the after-effects of a strong anesthetic. While needle can be slightly uncomfortable, it is certainly something you can go through.
You just need to limit your exposure under the sun, but that should be done without Sculptra anyway. After all, the harsh UVA rays will hasten aging.
For best results, a touch-up might be required, but that is something you and your doctor should discuss. Nonetheless, this is one route you can certainly look into.
