Sculptra Injectables in Bedford
Sculptra® is an FDA cleared injectable that assists in slowly boosting collagen production; and we offer it in our Bedford office. This injectable differs from hyaluronic acid or fillers because it focuses on gradually repairing collagen production; while ‘fillers’ immediately fill in those lines and enhance volume, Sculptra works gradually, for a more natural and longer lasting look*. While this is not a traditional filler, it is a collagen stimulator; this means that it works more gradually to help heal and enhance the underlying layers of your skin. For best results, the injectable treatment is typically administered in series of three injections over three to four months.*
What can Sculptra Treat?
It can treat facial folds and shallow to deep lines. This filler is FDA approved for wrinkles around the chin, nose, mouth and smile and marionette lines. During your free consultation, our specialist will help determine which areas of your face Sculptra may help you meet your goals.*
How Soon will Results Appear?*
Depending on your treatment regimen, Sculptra results are designed to appear gradually lasting more than two years. For best results, we recommend a series of about three treatments over several months. To see full results, follow the recommended treatment plan and within a few months you should see a noticeable difference and reduction in wrinkles.*
Are There Side Effects to Sculptra?
While side effects are not common, they can include redness, tenderness, bruising, lumps, bleeding, itching or swelling at the injection site. Small bumps may appear when pressing on the injection site. Large bumps have also been recorded that may or may not have inflammation. These may not be all the side effects and our specialist will inform you of all side effects. If you are experiencing side effects or any pain at the injection site, contact your doctor immediately. Sculptra® is FDA approved and has been used to treat patients since 1999. No allergy testing is needed because it contains no human or animal particles.
What to Expect After Your Sculptra Treatment?
There may be some slight swelling and soreness after you initial treatment so having a ice pack ready may help reduce that common swelling. Wrap the ice pack in a cloth and be sure to never apply ice directly to your treated skin. Another good practice after a treatment is to massage the treatment area for five minutes, every day for about five days after treatment. Finally, it is best to stay out of the sun immediately following treatment. However, our specialist will direct you on how to best take care of yourself after treatment.
