Facial volume is a sign of health, but illnesses and age can lead to a loss in facial volume. When you lose facial volume, you look ill and old. The loss of facial volume also causes unwanted folds and wrinkles. If you have lost weight on your face due to an illness or as a natural aging process, MaVie’s Sculptra treatment can help you regain that lost facial volume and give you a healthier and more youthful look.
Sculptra is an FDA-approved cosmetic filler designed to enhance your facial features, add volume, and vanish the signs of aging. Both men and women can benefit from MaVie’s Sculptra treatment. It is made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which is a collagen stimulator. It’s a safe and effective treatment that works to give you a naturally younger appearance.
How Does Sculptra Work?
Sculptra is an injectable collagen stimulator. When injected into the skin, it works to slowly restore facial fullness that is lost from illness or age and decreases facial wrinkles and folds. The result is smooth, plumper, and younger skin.
Is Sculptra For You?
Sculptra may be the treatment you are looking for if you have decreased facial volume that occurs naturally after a prolonged illness or due to age. Sculptra is also used for:
• Correction of cellulite.
• Correction of wrinkles on the chest, knees, and elbows.
• Non Surgical buttock augmentation/butt lift.
The Sculptra Procedure
When you visit us at MaVie, our medical staff will listen to your needs and try to envision with you what you want the result to be. We will also take your medical history into account, and then give you options so you can make the best-educated decision possible. We do not force our treatments on anyone. While Sculptra might be the ideal choice for some, there are those who benefit from other treatments we offer.
On the day that we schedule your Sculptra treatment, your medical professional will identify and mark the injection sites on your skin. They will also thoroughly clean the area with an antiseptic.
A topical anesthetic will be applied on your skin to ensure you are comfortable throughout the procedure and don’t experience pain or discomfort. The Sculptra filler will be injected into the marked areas, just under your skin, using multiple small injections.
We ensure that your Sculptra treatment at MaVie is as relaxing and comfortable as possible. Our classic med spa setting, luxurious interiors, and friendly staff all contribute to your comfort. The procedure is minimally invasive, and you can return to your daily routine immediately after the treatment.
On Your Recovery Procedure
You might experience tenderness, bruising, redness, or itching at the injection sites after the treatment. These side effects are quite normal and will clear up without any intervention within a couple of days. To help ease the discomfort, you can try applying a cold pack to the affected area for a few minutes every hour for the first 24 hours post-treatment. Gently massage the surrounding areas for a few minutes a couple of times a day for five days. Avoid going out in the sun and tanning beds until the side effects subside entirely.
Expected Results with Sculptra
You will notice results immediately after the treatment, but the best part is that with MaVie’s Sculptra treatment, you can expect to see new changes every day over the next couple of weeks. The advantage of Sculptra over other dermal fillers is that the results last much longer – for almost two years. Most people require a minimum of three treatments, spread over three to four months, to see the type of results they desire. The results will get better with every treatment session that you have.
