If you’re unhappy with the way your skin looks and you’re considering a treatment like Sculptra, you might be wondering if you’re a good candidate. Here are some factors that make you a perfect candidate for treatment at Biotech Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Spa in Bay Harbor Islands, FL.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Sculptra?
You’re in Good General Health
This injectable is approved by the FDA for anyone over the age of 21. However, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or you have autoimmune disorders. If you have skin conditions around the areas you want to target, you should wait until they clear up.
If you are in good general health, however, it should be perfectly safe for you to receive this treatment.
You’ve Noticed Jowls Forming
As your skin loses collagen, you may see jowls forming along your jawline. That’s because collagen loss also causes a loss of elasticity. If you’d like to get rid of your jowls but don’t want to have to undergo something invasive like surgery, this could be the perfect option for you.
This injectable contains PLLA beads which stimulate your body’s collagen production. This will firm the skin around your jawline and make it appear more defined.
You’re Seeing Marionette Lines
Volume loss and a loss of elasticity can cause marionette lines to form. These are lines that run from the corners of your mouth toward your chin. The more severe they become, the more they will age your appearance.
This injectable will stimulate more collagen production, reducing the appearance of these lines and keeping your chin area smooth.
You Have Smile Lines
These lines appear between your nose and your mouth. Repeated facial movements like smiling and laughing can cause them to become more severe.
This filler will put elasticity back into the area and smooth out your smile lines.
You Want Long-Lasting Results
Injectables don’t generally provide permanent results, but some can last a lot longer than others. Sculptra patients will be excited to hear that results can last up to 2 years.
There are a few ways you can help your results last as long as possible.
What you put into your body will have a huge effect on how it feels and looks. To help support the collagen production that this filler triggers, look for foods that also contain proteins. Lean proteins are best and can be found in white meat, eggs, beans, and soy.
You should also look for foods high in antioxidants which can help to boost your overall health and keep your skin looking clear.
Wear Sun Protection
When you go out in the sun, always make sure you are wearing sun protection. You should apply sunscreen with at least 30SPF. This will protect you from the sun’s harsh UV rays which can cause a lot of damage to your skin. These rays can increase your risk of things like wrinkling, dark spots, and even skin cancer.
You should also wear protective gear like hats and sunglasses to further keep your skin safe.
Exercising increases your blood circulation which brings nutrients and oxygen to the working cells in your skin. This will help to keep your skin looking healthy and clear, and you’ll be able to maintain your results from this treatment for longer.
Making sure that you are staying hydrated will help you increase and support your body’s collagen production. It will be especially important to stay hydrated during the week or so after your initial appointment.
Take Good Care of Your Skin
You should remember to keep up with a regular skincare routine. Choose well-made products that will help to support collagen production. Wash your face twice a day using a quality cleanser. Then, apply a moisturizer.
Ingredients like glycerin, hyaluronic acid, and, of course, collagen in these products can help to maintain the results you get from this treatment.
You Want Low-Fuss Treatment
Because this treatment is non-invasive, it’s a great option for people who don’t want to have a super complicated treatment.
Getting Ready for Treatment
Before providing you with this treatment, we’ll consult with you so we can ensure this treatment option is the right one for you. We’ll also let you know what you need to do before you get your injections.
Make sure you avoid products like tobacco and alcohol, as well as supplements like vitamin E and medications like aspirin which can thin your blood.
Your treatment will begin with us cleaning your skin. Once the grime and buildup on your skin have been removed, we can start applying the product. A fine needle will be used to administer it.
There will be no pain during treatment. You’ll only feel a pinch as the needle is inserted. For the best, accurate results, we’ll apply small amounts at a time in various strategic locations. Your appointment will likely take less than half an hour, depending on how many injections you need.
After Your Treatment
As soon as your treatment is finished, you can leave the clinic. We’ll provide you with thorough instructions on what you need to do to ensure your treatment is as successful as possible. Make sure you follow our aftercare instructions for the best results.
Since it’s non-invasive, there is no downtime required. Just make sure you avoid any excessive physical exertion, direct sunlight, and extreme temperatures while your skin heals.
You Want Something Natural-Looking
You may be eager to avoid awkward questions from the people in your life about whether you’ve had cosmetic work done. When you get this treatment at our clinic, we’ll ensure that your treatment looks completely natural.
We’ll also customize your treatment plan to ensure that you get exactly the results you want. No matter how minimal or how drastic you want the change in your looks to be, we’ll help you achieve your goals.
You Want To Avoid Surgery
Only surgery can provide permanent results. However, surgeries tend to be invasive, and they naturally carry a certain amount of risk. You may not be comfortable with that, but you might still want a positive change in the way you look.
This treatment is non-invasive and can still provide you with a youthful, healthy overall appearance.
You’re Tired of Topical Products
There are many cosmetic products out there, including topical creams that include ingredients like collagen and hyaluronic acid. While these products can certainly help maintain a youthful appearance, they may not provide you with the effective results you want.
This treatment will offer you the effective results that you’ve been looking for by stimulating your body’s collagen production.
Supplements Aren’t Working
Collagen supplements are widely available at many health and grocery stores. However, because of the way the body must break down the collagen in the proteins in these supplements, whether or not they are actually effective is inconclusive.
The effectiveness of Sculptra is not inconclusive. You’ll see a noticeable difference in your skin as the treatment takes effect, reducing signs of aging like wrinkling and sagging.
You Want To Combine Treatments
Along with Sculptra, various other treatments can help to provide you with effective results. You can easily combine many of these treatments to get your appearance exactly the way you want it.
For example, since this treatment is best suited for the lower parts of the face, a filler that can target the upper areas can help you achieve an overall more youthful look. You can also combine this treatment with neuromodulators like BOTOX to help prevent muscle over-contraction for more dramatic results.
You’re Ready To Feel More Confident
For many people, signs of aging like wrinkling and sagging can have a hugely negative effect on a person’s self-esteem. When you have low self-esteem, you may find yourself feeling unhappy in other areas of your life, avoiding activities you usually love, or not feeling like you can wear the clothes you want.
You deserve to love the way you look and feel confident and happy in your skin. When you use this treatment to enhance your appearance, you’ll notice a major boost to your self-esteem.
