If creases and wrinkles are taking a toll on your appearance, it may be time to consider Sculptra treatments at Transformations Plastic Surgery in Rockford, Illinois.
Sculptra is an injectable that employs a substance known as Poly-l-lactic acid. This acid is safe and effective because:
- It does not harm your body.
- It’s biodegradable and can be broken down by your body.
Our patients have reported they are happy with their appearance after Sculptra treatments and come away looking younger and revitalized. To learn more about Sculptra treatment, or to make an appointment, contact Transformations Plastic Surgery today.
How It Works
Sculptra is injected just below the skin’s surface in areas that have lost fat. Gradually, Sculptra generates an increase in skin thickness and improves your appearance.
While Sculptra does not correct the root causes of fat loss, it is effective in improving your appearance by boosting skin thickness in areas you want to improve.
Sculptra helps you produce natural collagen, and this increases your facial volume gradually over time. Typically, the deeper that the wrinkle you want treated is, the more Sculptra will be required to achieve desired results.
The good news is, Sculptra can help you produce needed collagen for as long as two years – and it keeps wrinkles and lines at bay.
For many patients, more than one treatment will be required to achieve the results you want. Because everyone’s skin is different, results often can vary from patient to patient.
At Transformations Plastic Surgery, our talented and courteous professional team will consult with you individually to develop the Sculptra treatment plan that’s best for you.
Again, Sculptra is long-lasting – two years in most cases. But touch-up treatments are likely needed during that period.
Some potential side effects of Sculptra are small bumps that can appear under the skin in treated areas. These bumps often go away on their own and typically cannot be seen by you or others, but you may feel them under your skin.
Other potential side effects occur at the injection site. These can include minor discomfort, tenderness or swelling. But these effects are not major and typically disappear anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks.
Sculptra should be used by patients with strong and healthy immune systems. You may not be right for Sculptra treatments if:
- You have allergic reactions to any Sculptra ingredients.
- You have a history of forming keloids or suffer from hypertrophic scarring.
- You have an active skin infection or are suffering from inflammation in the area you want treated.
Sculptra is not used in the red areas of lips.
At Transformations Plastic Surgery, our professional team will go over your medical history with you before Sculptra treatment, and we will review any medications you are taking.
The vast majority of patients have no negative issues or reactions from Sculptra treatment – and it’s been used safely on countless patients around the world.
If you would like to fight the effects of aging and come away looking refreshed and revitalized, consider Sculptra treatments.
