Sculptra Filler

Sculptra For Facial Rejuvenation

Presently, the aging process is no longer seen as a gravitational fall. The loss of volume and bone remodeling is an essential components. While invasive procedures correct sagging skin, they do not fix the loss of volume. However, fillers including Sculptra offer a reasonable solution Most of the fillers are made of Hyaluronic acid, however, Sculptra is not an actual filler and is made of the polylactic acid microsphere. It provides a scaffold for natural collagen natural production.

Dermal filler injections, like Sculptra, are an effective treatment option for treating a broad range of cosmetic issues caused by causes such as aging. Our staff at Albany Cosmetic and Laser Centre in Edmonton is committed to ensuring that all of our patients have gorgeous Sculptra results in Edmonton.

Collagen and Aging Process

Collagen is an essential structural protein of the skin that gives it volume and helps it seem younger. Our skin produces less collagen as we age, and our skin loses flexibility and volume—wrinkles, creases, and folds form as a result of this and environmental variables like sun exposure. Collagen-based anti-aging lotions can’t go beyond the skin’s surface to replenish lost collagen. Sculptra, on the other hand, can.
Sculptra works in the skin dermal layer to organically boost the body’s collagen production. Sculptra progressively enhances or restores volume to repair wrinkles and folds as lost collagen is replenished. Your new young appearance develops gradually over several treatments, so it is subtle and natural-looking. Furthermore, the effects might continue for up to two years.

Sculptra Treatment FAQs

Sculptra addresses one of the key factors contributing to facial ageing: collagen loss. Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), the active ingredient in Sculptra, begins working inside the deep dermis (underlying skin) to gradually replace damaged collagen. PLLA is a polymer that is biodegradable, which means that the body has the ability to consume it safely. Moreover, Sculptra is biocompatible material, means it is safe to be injected without a risk of immune response
Sculptra penetrates the skin deeply to gently replenish missing collagen. Collagen production restores volume and progressively corrects creases and folds. You should anticipate modest improvements in the treated area’s overall look (s). Dr. Alhallak will consult with you to ascertain the number of treatments necessary to attain the desired appearance.
Consultation with a trained and experienced provider is the first step before undergoing any cosmetic operation. During this time, you will discuss the outcomes you intend to accomplish, and we will provide you with options and the best course of action for you. Dr. Alhallak, Ph.D., will consider your specific facial characteristics, curves, and form. This is also the moment to raise any questions and express any concerns you may have about your impending treatment with your doctor. After your consultation is complete, you will be scheduled for your Sculptra injections. The treatment may begin with the use of a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort during the injection of the Sculptra solution. This step is unnecessary since Sculptra is injected with such a small needle that the majority of patients experience no pain. Dr. Alhallak will next administer injections to the therapy locations. The total procedure might take between fifteen and sixty minutes, depending on the number of regions treated during the session.
you may notice that the treated regions seem plumper immediately following injections. This is due to the poly-L-lactic acid and edema and will subside after a few days of your injections. In the weeks after your Sculptra treatment, your ultimate, natural, and young results will gradually become obvious. For many people, injections must be given numerous times over a few months to achieve the desired outcomes.
Following each Sculptra Aesthetic treatment session, there are a few simple steps you may do to aid in the treatment’s success. You can print this instruction leaflet and keep it accessible to remind yourself to complete the following daily: Have an ice pack on hand: Apply a cloth-wrapped ice pack to the treated region for minutes at a time throughout the first 24 hours of therapy. The cold will aid in the reduction of common edema. Do not apply ice immediately to the skin, but use Ice packs or zip lock bags Massage the treated region for 5 minutes five times daily for 5 days following treatment, as directed by your physician. AVOID EXCESSIVE SUNSHINE AND ULTRAVIOLET EXPOSURE: While it is always vital to protect your skin from the sun following treatment until any early swelling and redness subside. We will advise you on the proper use of sunscreen and how to prevent excessive sun exposure. If you have any questions or concerns following therapy, contact us. Additionally, notify us of any adverse consequences. Ensure that you keep any planned follow-up visits. Bear in mind that Sculptra Aesthetic progressively replaces collagen. It enhances your appearance gently without making it appear as though you’ve had work done.
Sculptra is an excellent solution for restoring your young appearance. These injections are suitable for both men and women. If you are healthy, but concern about aging, you may be an excellent candidate for Sculptra. With Sculptra injections, visible indications of aging such as hollow cheeks and fine wrinkles are decreased. Additionally, this therapy may be advantageous for individuals who have seen severe volume reduction in their faces as a result of significant weight loss. Collagen production can be increased gradually to help fill up empty regions of the face caused by weight loss. Any skin infections or other medical problems should be mentioned at your visit.

Sculptra: Six Reasons to Consider It

An All-Inclusive Rejuvenation

This dermal filler helps rebuild the face’s underlying framework by stimulating collagen formation, providing a slew of aesthetic advantages. Once this dermal filler has been absorbed into the skin, the additional fullness in the face helps conceal fine lines, wrinkles, and creases. Bony prominences, such as the cheekbones, are softened when the skin thins with age. Additionally, this filler may augment parts of the face that have gotten deflated with time, such as the temple. By restoring some of the youthful curves and thickening thinning skin, this injection may significantly enhance the appearance of the face. Indeed, this filler’s non-invasive lifting and rejuvenating properties are frequently referred to as a liquid facelift.

Long-Term Enhancement

Because this filler rebuilds the face’s underlying architecture by creating collagen, the effects are far longer lasting than with most other injectables. Typically, patients enjoy their effects for two years or more. Even if you decide not to repeat the procedure, you will still benefit from the additional collagen produced by that one fluid facelift.

No known Allergies

Numerous other fillers on the market are made of hyaluronic acid, which helps the skin retain moisture and remain moisturized. Poly-L-Lactic acid is a chemical found in dissolvable sutures. Because Poly-L-Lactic Acid is a synthetic substance, there is no danger of adverse response and no need for allergy testing. Once it has completed its task of stimulating collagen production, Poly-L-Lactic Acid naturally degrades in the body.

Natural Outcomes

The majority of patients have four Sculptra Injections over many weeks. The injections are made in a random sequence to generate a mesh-like structure under the skin. This implies that the filler provides complete coverage once in situ and may act as a foundation for collagen growth. Collagen formation is a lengthy process, and it may take many months before the benefits in the face take hold completely. However, the slow onset of results produces more natural-looking and less over-filled outcomes for patients. You will never seem as though you “went out” and “had work done.”

Low-Maintenance Alternative

This filler needs a series of initial treatments, which may be completed in less than an hour with no downtime. Numerous individuals plan their visits around their lunch break. Once the first set of injections is done, you will be good to go for two years and not need to return for maintenance treatments or top-offs every few months. You will not have to think twice about this filler.

It Is Even Capable of Brazilian Butt lift

Although this dermal filler is most often used to improve the appearance of the face and reverse the effects of age, did you know it may also be used to brighten up the buttocks? It operates similarly in the buttocks. This filler stimulates collagen formation after treatment, gradually lifting and toning the derriere over many months.

The Facial Aging processes

Several changes in the bone, muscles, and skin contribute to skin aging. Facial aging mainly includes bone atrophy and soft-tissue changes. So examining the entire facial tissue is pivotal to offering natural results.

Facial Bone

The loss and expansion of bone is key contributor to facial aging. By the age of 60, most people experience bone and tissue mass loss by an average of 25%. and the orbital aperture increases.

Facial Fat

Changes in fat also cause facial aging. Fat pad cells are situated in 2 layers:

  • A superficial layer
  • fascia superficialis

Both help gives your skin a healthy look while the deep layer under and around the muscles makes your face look youthful.

However, as you age, the fat position and volume change. This, in turn, changes your facial appearance. And sagging becomes visible due to the excessive skin and elastic recoil.

Facial Muscles

It isn’t clear if muscles change or age, physiologically. However, research shows that deep fat underneath the muscle causes its curvilinear shape. Volume loss underneath the muscles causes structures to straighten and shorten gradually. This then takes on a firm look.

Facial Skin

Aging causes the dermal collagen matrix to fragment. This leads to the impairment of the fibroblast function. Fibroblasts can no more attach to the fragmented collagen fibers. It then collapses and produces high levels of collagen-degrading enzymes and a low amount of collagen.

When the skin loses the needed levels of collagen, this imbalance increases the aging process. This then causes elastosis, dermal atrophy, static and dynamic wrinkles.

Mode of Action and Safety of Poly-L-Lactic Acid

Indeed, Sculptra PLLA is a deep tissue rejuvenator. It offers soft tissue augmentation via stimulating the production of collagen. PLLA is quite different from traditional injectable fillers. This treatment helps generate new volume progressively via fibroblast stimulation. This then causes the skin to form new collagen. What’s more, results can last up to 25 months.

Target areas for Sculptra

  • Cheeks
  • Malar area
  • Pre-auricular area
  • Chin area
  • Prejowl sulcus
  • Medial from the DAO muscle

PLLA can’t be used in the following areas:

  • Crow’s feet and eyelids
  • Depressor anguli oris muscle
  • Perioral area (periorbital area and upper lip perioral lines)
  • Commissures
  • Vermillion border of the lip and front headlines
  • Nose

Combining other procedures with Sculptra

To achieve effective tissue augmentation, you can use PLLA as a foundation for other treatments. These include:

  • HA
  • Plasma PRP injection
  • Chemical peels
  • Botox
  • Radio-frequency
  • Micro-needling
  • Microdermabrasion
  • Laser resurfacing

Post care treatment

Good post-treatment care can help prevent the formation of papules and maximize the growth of collagen growth. While data to back massages as post-treatment is insufficient, doctors recommend massaging the area for some minutes.

Other post-care treatment includes:

  • Avoid taking alcohol excessively.
  • Don’t exercise for the first 24 hours
  • Avoid sun exposure until any redness or swelling

Treatment Follow-Up

Visit your doctor after some months to examine symmetry and volume correction. During the evaluation, your doctor will determine if you need further treatments. Any re-stimulation after 2 years, you’ll only need between 30% and 50% of the previous PLLA amount.
