About Sculptra

STIMULATE COLLAGEN

Sculptra is an injectable dermal filler that stimulates your own collagen production. In 2014, the FDA approved Sculptra Aesthetic for treating wrinkles and folds on the face to give a more youthful appearance. The main ingredient in Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). It’s classified as a collagen stimulator that provides long-lasting, natural-looking results that can last up to two years.

Pre-Treatment

  • Drink ample water, to keep your skin hydrated.

  • NO Aspirin, Motrin, Gingko Biloba, Garlic, Flax Oil, Cod Liver Oil, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, or any other essential fatty acids at least 3 days to 1 week before treatment. DO NOT stop taking aspirin or any blood thinners for this procedure until it is discussed with your primary care provider and/or cardiologist.

  • Discontinue use of retinol, Retin-A, AHA, BHA or other active products 2 days prior to treatment.

  • AVOID: Alcohol, caffeine, Niacin supplement, high-sodium foods, high sugar foods, refined carbohydrates (you may eat fruit), spicy foods, and cigarettes 24-48 hours before and after your treatment.

  • If you develop a cold sore, blemish, or rash, etc. prior to your appointment you must reschedule. Let us know if you are prone to cold sores – a pre-procedure medication may help prevent cold sores after treatment.

  • Schedule appointment at least 2 weeks prior to a special event, i.e., wedding, vacation, etc. to avoid undesirable bruising at the time of the event.

Post-Treatment

  • Some bruising and swelling may occur around the areas that were injected. Immediately post treatment it is important to continue to massage all the injection areas.  The general rule of thumb is the “five, five, five” recommendation. Massage each injection area for 5 minutes, 5 times a day, for 5 minutes each time. Report any redness, blisters, or itching immediately if it occurs after treatment.

  • AVOID Aspirin, Motrin, Gingko Biloba, Garlic, Flax Oil, Cod Liver Oil, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, or any other essential fatty acids at least 3 days to 1 week after treatment. DO NOT stop taking aspirin or any blood thinners for this procedure until it is discussed with your primary care provider and/or cardiologist and your injector first.

  • AVOID: Alcohol, caffeine, Niacin supplement, high-sodium foods, high sugar foods, refined carbohydrates (you may eat fruit), spicy foods, and cigarettes 24-48 hours after your treatment.

  • AVOID Vigorous exercise and sun and heat exposure for 3 days after treatment.

  • Discontinue use of Retin-A, Retinol, AHA, and BHA for 3-5 days post-treatment. It is best to wear no makeup or lipstick until the next day.

  • Wait 2 weeks before any further enhancements, injections, or facial procedures. The results of Sculptra are not immediate and the collagen growth occurs over the course of several weeks post-treatment. It is recommended you schedule your second treatment six weeks to three months after your first treatment for best results, and then maintain the results with a “birthday vial” of Sculptra each year. Individual treatment plans will differ and we will discuss follow up care and further treatment recommendations at your appointment.
