Aging is a process of life. And usually, it shows more on the face. We often begin to notice its effects from the age of 40, when wrinkles, grooves, and sunspots begin to appear.

And it is the collagen that has a lot to do with this aging process. Collagen acts as a support structure for the skin that provides volume and firmness to our skin. However, with the pass of the years, the production of collagen begins to decrease.

Sculptra Fort Lauderdale

With our Sculptra Fort Lauderdale treatment, you can recover the natural beauty of your skin. If you start to notice sagging skin, then it may be time to try Sculptra in Fort Lauderdale. Sculptra is an aesthetic treatment that aims to eliminate not only sagging skin but also wrinkles and signs of aging that, over time, is beginning to notice.

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is a biocompatible and biodegradable injectable material, also known as poly-L-lactic acid that naturally stimulates and helps your cells to produce your collagen. Sculptra gives you a more youthful and natural-looking appearance. This treatment also refreshes your appearance by restoring the skin's natural contours and smoothing wrinkles, and creases.

Sculptra for Cellulite Treatment

Sculptra for cellulite is injected under the dimpled areas of cellulite and placed at the same level as the surrounding skin. For best results, some doctors combine Sculptra with Cellfina, an FDA-approved cellulite treatment. Sculptra can produce excellent results in cellulite, but it is not considered a first-line treatment option. The most common treatments for cellulite include subcision (the technique used in Cellfina), Thermage, and laser treatments.

Sculptra Benefits

The advantage of this product is that the wrinkle filler is achieved by the formation of its collagen, stimulated by polylactic acid and not by the direct effect of the injected product.

Another of its most favorable characteristics is the toxicity of the product.

Finally, polylactic acid can infiltrate people who have already received some of the previous implants. There is no problem, as long as the last product is not recently injected.

Sculptra Filler Procedure

Before the administration of Sculptra injection, the Sculptra suspension may be diluted with lidocaine to reduce the discomfort of the needle. The Sculptra suspension is injected with a very fine gauge syringe. Unlike other dermal injectables, it is injected under, not into the skin.

Another difference between other fillers and Sculptra is that it is placed under a facial defect, as opposed to the "punctual" placement of the other fillers under a wrinkle or line.

Right after the treatment, the treated areas are massaged for a few minutes in order to distribute the Sculptra suspension evenly. This massage helps prevent the formation of lumps or nodules under the skin.

Side effects and risks

It is common to feel some swelling and to bruise at the Sculptra injection site. Other common side effects include:

  • Redness.
  • Bleeding.
  • Itch.
  • Bumps.

You should know that some people may develop lumps under the skin and skin discoloration. In a 2015 study, the reported incidence of nodule formation associated with Sculptra was 7 to 9 percent.

Sculptra should not be used by people with a history of irregular scars or anyone allergic to Sculptra's ingredients. It should not be used at the site of skin sores, acne, cysts, skin rashes, or other skin inflammation.

Cost of Sculptra Fort Lauderdale

The Sculptra cost per treatment ranges between $600 and $3,600. Depending on each patient, the number of Sculptra sessions needed will vary, as will the cost. Some patients will respond more quickly than others to Sculptra injections or have lost less facial fat until the time of Sculptra treatment.
