We used Sculptr for BBL as, we classify Sculptra as collagen-inducing fillers, This means that Sculptra itself has no instantaneous filler properties, but a gradual one in Edmonton. Once injected the poly l lactic acid microsphere forms depositions in the injected area and helps the tissues to produce collagen. On the contrary, HA fillers expand and filler the cavity such as under the eyes or nasolabial folds to add volume and correct the deficiencies, hence the name Voluma and Volume.
One of the most pronounced differences is that HA fillers are reversible, you can dissolve them instantly by injecting a special enzyme (hyaluronidase), which provides both convenience and safety advantages.
Where to Inject Sculptra For BBL
There are some places that we do not recommend using Sculptra in them, such as lips and under the eye, nor for nasolabial fold contour deficiencies. These indications require us to be able to predict the final results and be very precise about the volume enhancement and filler location in the treated area. We prefer using HA fillers (with different thicknesses and consistency) for precise and delicate filler injections.
We highly recommend Sculptra for BBL for a client who is looking for a subtle change over a relatively long period. For example, a client with many facial wrinkles (mainly fine ones) with a general loss of facial volume and healthy immune systems ( free of Auto-immune diseases) Then Sculptra treatment is the filler of choice.
Expectations After Sculptra For BBL
Do NOT go for Sculptra for BBL if you are planning to impress everyone around you with pictures and selfies immediately. After injection, the Sculptra aesthetic injectable polylactic acid microsphere will settle in cavities and hollow places. This will form a scaffold for collagen to build up (collagen production) and increase the volume over time and induce the natural process of skin rejuvenation. If you want your friend to say “you look younger “without being able to figure out what you have done, then it is time to think of Sculptra.
Health status and safety
people with healthy immune are good candidates for Sculptra for BBL. In addition to people who are immune deficient such as HIV patients. However, it is not recommended for people with auto-immune diseases such as lupus. Since we would not be able to dissolve Sculptra, then we will not be able to remove it in case the client had an allergic reaction and was injected into blood vessels
Common Side effects and other concerns post-treatment
The most common adverse effects of Sculptra for BBL include site edema, bruising, lumps, redness, itching, and lumps. We should avoid putting this material into blood arteries since it clogs them, resulting in ischemic events. The skin should be intact and devoid of sores, cysts, infection, or irritation at the injection site. Little lumps may be felt under the skin when pushing on the injection site. Other documented adverse responses include bigger lumps under the skin, inflammation or discoloration, and skin sores at the injection site.
