Is Sculptra Your Skin’s Non-Surgical Saviour?
It’s no secret that many of us are in a constant pursuit of looking younger for longer, and this desire can take us down several different routes in our attempt to hold back the hands of time. It’s long been known that non-surgical treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers can do remarkable things to the signs of aging; but now it’s time for the next generation of non-surgical anti-ageing treatment- Sculptra.
Sculptra is a non-surgical cosmetic injectable that aims to improve the look of a number of ageing issues in the skin in one simple cosmetic treatment. Sculptra’s main use is to restore a youthful lift to the structure of the face and help regain fullness too, which can often be lost as a part of the ageing process. The treatment can also tackle other issues such as lines and wrinkles in the skin and the development of dark circles under the eyes too.
What’s great about sculptra is that it gives patients a way to tackle a multitude of ageing issues in one simple procedure. This is a huge benefit for many patients as it means that they can tackle a number of cosmetic issues in one treatment rather than sitting a number of treatments. Another benefit of Sculptra is that it gives patients gradual and natural looking results that sometimes can not be offered by surgical alternatives. Sculptra is also convenient – with an average procedure time of just 30 minutes and no recovery time,it is the perfect anti-ageing treatment for patients with busy lifestyles.
Although there are a wealth of benefits to Sculptra, it is also important that patients look at the treatment as a whole; which means also factoring in the risks and side-effects to the decision making process. Dr. Thevendra of APASARAS clinic explain the risks and side-effects involved with Sculptra.
“Sculptra carries very similar risks and side-effects to many other forms of non-surgical anti-ageing treatments such as dermal fillers and Botox injections. The risks involved with Sculptra treatment include possible swelling, redness and bleeding at the site of injections, as well as possible facial muscle and nerve damage and the risks of infection. These are extremely rare to experience and shouldn’t be something you encounter when undergoing treatment with an experienced cosmetic professional.”
What makes Sculptra a step up from other non-surgical forms of anti-ageing treatment is that it provides patients with natural looking results that can gradually improve over time. Sculptra also can provide patients with results that can last for up to two years following treatment, which is a time period that many other non-surgical anti-ageing treatments can not compete with.
If you are considering Sculptra, it’s very important that you get a full picture of the treatment before making the decision to go forward. This means making sure that you know the risks involved, and having weighed them up, having a realistic idea of what results you can gain and settling on a experienced professional you feel comfortable undergoing treatment with. A great way to gain all this vital information is to sit a consultation with an experienced cosmetic practitioner. This is give you the chance to ask any unanswered questions you may have, and will also give you a glimpse into the working style of the cosmetic professional.
