This facial injectable treatment is indicated for the correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold smile lines, contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles which are treated with the appropriate injection technique in healthy people. It works gradually to replace collagen that is lost during the aging process. Sculptra Aesthetic gives you natural-looking results that can last up to 2 years. A complimentary consultation is required prior to treatment.
To decrease potential bruising, avoid these medications for at least one week prior to injections: Aspirin or Ibuprofen, Fish Oil, Vitamin E, “G” supplements (ginkgo, ginseng, garlic), St. John’s Wort. NSAIDS like Celebrex and Naproxen may cause thinning of the blood, consult your physician before discontinuing. Downtime may include bruising and slight swelling. Patients are encouraged to lightly massage treated areas for 5 minutes, 5 times/day, for 5 consecutive days to ensure accurate collagen growth.
