Collagen loss contributes to many signs of aging, such as fine lines, decreased volume, depressed areas, and folds. Stimulating collagen production in problem areas can address these issues, and Sculptra is a noninvasive way to kickstart your body’s natural process. South Jersey Aesthetics in Gibbsboro and Cape May Court House, NJ, offers this treatment as a solution for patients looking for a long-lasting way to restore or add fullness.
What Is Sculptra?
As you age, your body makes less collagen. Sculptra is an injectable that kickstarts collagen production and promotes your body’s natural regenerative processes. One of the reasons why so many patients love Sculptra is that it provides long-term results, up to two to three years. This treatment is different from many dermal fillers because it is technically a poly-L-lactic-acid biostimulator and is injected in liquid form,
Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers help create shape and fullness with their gel-like consistency and bind with water molecules to plump your skin, which is why results are visible immediately following treatment. Since Sculptra increases your body’s collagen creation, the effects appear more gradually as your body produces more collagen.
Although all dermal fillers are designed to replace volume lost due to aging, this treatment is well-received because it also helps your skin renew itself. Here are just a few of the reasons why patients choose Sculptra treatments:
- Fuller, healthier skin
- Long-lasting results
- Minimal chance of allergies
- Natural appearance
- No downtime
- Effortless treatment
Sculptra is frequently used as a facial filler to address fine lines, sunken areas, lost volume, and wrinkles. In addition to smoothing out cheek creases and smile lines, this treatment also improves the overall quality of your skin. Most patients are pleased to find that this therapy addresses wrinkles and volume loss and gives them a radiant glow by making their skin healthier.
Usually, patients will need to receive several sessions and wait a few weeks to see the results of this treatment, but the outcome is worth it. With Sculptra, there is no risk of accidentally looking “overdone.” Your body produces the collagen that causes fullness and improvements in wrinkles, so there’s no fear of using too much or limiting your natural facial movements.
The Sculptra Brazillian butt lift (BBL) offers a noninvasive way to enhance your natural shape. Weight loss, pregnancy, and aging can cause drooping and volume loss in the buttocks that exercise can’t fix. Unlike a traditional Brazillian butt lift, where a plastic surgeon takes fat from other areas of your body and uses it to augment your buttocks, this version is low-risk and doesn’t require surgery.
Typically you will need several rounds of injections to see your desired results, and the results will last for two to three years. This treatment is an excellent option for patients who don’t have enough body fat to perform a fat transfer or those who would like to avoid the expense and downtime that comes with a traditional Brazillian butt lift. This treatment can also be used to fill in hip dips and add volume to creases and folds.
Avéli™ Cellulite Treatment
Cellulite is a cosmetic issue that plagues many women and can cause them to feel insecure or even change how they dress to conceal it. Avéli™ is a revolutionary treatment that targets the bands that form cellulite and reduces the appearance of dimples. This treatment is FDA-approved, minimally invasive, and uses laser technology to heat fat cells so that they separate, increase blood circulation, and stimulate collagen. Avéli™ usually takes about an hour.
Avéli™ is an excellent standalone treatment or a complement to a Sculptra Brazillian butt lift. Many patients decide to do both so that not only are their buttocks shapely and firm, but they are also smoother. This cellulite removal treatment is completed in the office and requires minimal downtime. Patients who receive this therapy typically report being happy with the results over a year after treatment.
Frequenly Asked Quetions
Exactly how long your treatment will take depends on the size of the area being injected. That said, the filler process is performed quickly, and most patients have their treatments performed within 30 to 45 minutes.
Since the substance is pre-mixed with lidocaine, the injection process doesn’t cause more than mild discomfort. You may feel pressure or a slight pinching sensation; if you are worried about discomfort, a topical numbing agent can be used.
Some patients notice effects right after the treatment, but those results are temporary. Since Sculptra is a collagen stimulator, the substance doesn’t act as a physical filler. Instead, it causes your body to produce new collagen to add volume to the treated area and improve skin quality.
The recovery period after treatment is short and has few restrictions. Your treatment provider will advise you to avoid strenuous exercise for one to two days following the injections.
You will also be instructed not to consume alcoholic beverages the first few days after the treatment. For a few days, you will need to massage the treatment sites multiple times a day for a short period of time. Patients appreciate how this quick treatment doesn’t require significant recovery but still provides stunning results.
This treatment is safe for most adults who are looking to improve the shape of their buttocks or restore volume and rejuvenate aging facial skin. Pregnant or breastfeeding individuals will want to postpone treatment until after they have delivered or stopped breastfeeding.
Since this treatment works by causing your body to produce natural collagen, the chance of adverse or allergic reactions is very small. Some individuals may experience light bruising or tenderness at the injection site. Arnica topicals can be used to minimize bruising and tenderness.
