What are the possible side effects of using Sculptra?
Any time a needle is used on the skin bruising and infection can occur. It is common to experience a headache, stiffness in the jaw area.
If Sculptra injection is too superficial granuloma or nodules can form’ Till today; Dr. Allen has zero report case in spite of being the third highest user of Sculptra in the nation. Dr. Allen swears by the rule of 5 in the recovery process. A 5 minute massage should be done for 5 minutes, 5 times per day. This process increases blood flow to the injected areas and produces a greater initial collagen response. The water and lidocaine, which are mixed with the Sculptra, are absorbed by the body within the first 5 days, and the initial swelling is gone.
What are the alternatives to Sculptra?
Sculptra is the one of few injectables that rebuilds and stimulates collagen, “Bellafill is another stimulant and it is the longest lasting FDA approved filler on the market”. If you are looking for longer-lasting results; you may consider fat injections or Bellafill.
People may desire immediate results, they may find another injectables like Juvederm, Restylane, Voluma and Bellafill, to be a better option.
Can Sculptra be injected outside the face?
While Sculptra is FDA approved for facial wrinkles, Sculptra off label use is appropriate in few other areas outside the face to benefit from Sculptra’s ability to create collagen, improve the skin appearance and create volume. That is why Sculptra can be injected in women’s décolletage area. Sculptra can also be injected to improve butt and thigh cellulite, it can also help acne scars. Sculptra if injected in large volume; it can create non-surgical butt lift which may last for years.
We have many FDA approved injectable fillers to help soften these unwanted wrinkles. Sculptra will be the best “foundation” option to the face. Few Sculptra should be considered in every face and regardless of the age to create that glamorous skin known as “Sculptra Glow”.
Not every patient is a perfect candidate for Everything. Dr. Allen’s approach is based on “individual plan” rather than a “Product”. The best outcome from a consultation is to understand the aging process and the volume loss in the face as a result from bone and fat loss or what is known as “fat pads” and the effect of this loss on the face wrinkles.
This understand is what will make you “with the help of Dr. Allen” come with the best approach to have an affordable plan to reverse aging.
