Many people want to maintain smooth and flawless skin as they grow older. For those who are looking for a non-invasive treatment to achieve this, Sculptra may help you achieve this goal by activating collagen production in the underlying skin structure.

Deigni Plastic Surgery is happy to offer Sculptra in Houston. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Olivier Deigni, has the experience, skills, and knowledge to conduct a safe and seamless injection procedure. Read on to explore the ideal candidates for Sculptra and the process involved.

Ideal Candidates for Sculptra

Many people can benefit from Sculptra but it might not be the best choice for you, or you may need to wait until you meet certain qualifications. You are an ideal candidate for this treatment if:

  • You are uncomfortable with the look of your temple area
  • You desire fuller cheeks
  • Your face has marionette lines
  • You wish to eradicate your jowls
  • You are self-conscious about your nasolabial folds
  • You have low-stress levels
  • You are between 18 and 65 years old
  • You can set aside a few hours in your busy schedule

Treatment could last longer when you have low psychological stress. Dr. Deigni recommends practicing mindfulness and eliminating stressors in your environment to achieve optimal results. Poor nutrition, alcohol, and tobacco consumption may also affect the efficacy of Sculptra treatment.

How the Procedure Works

We use state-of-the-art equipment at our Houston office to ensure that Sculptra is safe, comfortable, and effective. The following is what you can expect, from the consultation to the recovery.

Initial Consultation

When you visit Deigni Plastic Surgery, our team will ask you about the following aspects of your life in order to plan your Sculptra treatment:

  • Your pregnancy and breastfeeding history
  • Age
  • Medications you are currently taking
  • Goals and expectations
  • Underlying medical conditions
  • Past or present alcohol and tobacco consumption
  • Past surgical procedures

Dr. Deigni will advise you against taking certain medications, such as ibuprofen, before Sculptra treatment. Any skin rashes, outbreaks, or redness may delay the procedure until the conditions are fully resolved. If you are  expecting a child or breastfeeding, it is recommended that you wait until the nursing period is over.

Sculptra Treatment

After determining that you are eligible for Sculptra treatment, we will schedule an appointment in our Houston office. First, we prepare your face by cleaning the facial areas that will be treated. This helps remove built-up oil, dust, and grime for a flawless treatment process.

We will make your experience as pain-free and relaxed as possible by applying a numbing agent on the treatment areas. We use an injecting needle to carefully administer Sculptra in the underlying skin structure. You should expect a fast and effective injection process.

Post-Treatment Care

Sculptra treatment has a far shorter recovery period than surgical procedures. Dr. Deigni can discharge you immediately after the procedure and you should experience only minimal discomfort when you get home. Your body absorbs the Sculptra during the first 24-48 hours. During this period, there are no visible changes in the affected area.

You should not expose your skin to excess sunlight in the first days of the recovery phase. In addition, you should avoid tobacco and alcohol consumption, remain hydrated, and refrain from any physical activity that can cause sweating. Eating a highly nutritious diet (foods with zinc, vitamin E, and healthy fats) may improve skin health and enable you to achieve your desired outcome.

Benefits of Sculptra Injections

Sculptra provides numerous benefits without the need for anesthesia or incisions.

Increased Confidence

While sagging skin, wrinkles, and jowls are inevitable as you grow older, you do not have to just deal with them. Sculptra should allow you to notice changes to your looks after only a few weeks. You can expect your confidence to increase as you appear healthier and more youthful.

Natural-Looking Results

While Sculptra treatment might allow you to achieve a more youthful look, people will usually not be able to tell that you have undergone a professional cosmetic procedure.

Longevity

Even though the results of Sculptra are not permanent, they usually last for a quite a long time. You do not need to book an appointment with us every few weeks to maintain a youthful look; you should only need to eat a healthy diet and avoid exposure to excessive sunlight.
