Sculptra Cellulite Calgary
Reduce cellulite by restoring volume to the treatment area, filling in dimples, and disrupting the tight collagen fibers under the skin. Almost everyone knows what cellulite looks like – dimpled, and uneven skin usually on your butt and thighs. Cellulite can affect any woman, no matter their weight, or fat percentage, and no amount of squats or strict dieting will ever get rid of it completely. If you have been looking for a smoother, more contoured body shape, injectable cellulite treatments at our Calgary Med Spa could be exactly what you need. You may be a good candidate for a cellulite treatment if you have areas on your waist, tummy, hips, bum, thighs, legs, upper arms, or under the chin.
By replenishing lost collagen and rebuilding structure from within, Sculptra helps to improve the appearance of cellulite.
The treatment is customizable to target problem areas, such as the thighs, buttocks, and back of the arms.
At our Med Spa in Calgary, Sculptra is a quick and easy cellulite treatment that requires little to no downtime.
Tighten, smooth, and tone
Sculptra is an injectable treatment that rejuvenates the skin by stimulating the production of fresh, new collagen to replenish lost volume. As we age, our skin loses volume, and this can result in the development of dimples and depressions on the thighs, arms, buttocks, and other areas. Sculptra works to diminish the appearance of cellulite by filling in these gaps in connective tissue with new collagen, which helps to smooth out the skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite. This non-surgical cellulite treatment from our Calgary Med Spa is safe, effective, and minimally invasive, making it a popular option for those looking to improve their body contour.
1 to 2 sessions per year
As an FDA-approved dermal filler, Sculptra is generally considered a safe procedure. However, before undergoing treatment, your healthcare provider will evaluate your health status and goals to determine if the procedure is right for you. Sculptra may not be suitable if you are allergic or sensitive to any of its components, or if you have a history of slow healing after injury. Although rare, there are potential risks and side effects associated with Sculptra, including swelling, bruising, skin discoloration, discomfort, itching, and the formation of bumps or lumps under the skin.
Sculptra is a cosmetic treatment that is minimally invasive and requires no surgery. This injectable, which is FDA-approved for use on the face and body, is often referred to as the "liquid facelift." By penetrating deep into the dermis, it fills in wrinkles and lines while also encouraging the body to generate new collagen and underlying tissue. Over time, this leads to the restoration of fullness and a smooth texture in areas of the face that are most affected by the aging process.
Typically, the number of sessions and vials needed will depend on your age. For instance, women in their thirties and forties will typically require only three or four vials, whereas those in their fifties and sixties may require a total of five or six vials. There is a strict limit of two vials per treatment session, meaning, the number of vials needed will determine the number of treatment sessions you must attend. Younger women may only need two sessions, while older women may need three or four.
Sculptra results are very long-lasting, but not permanent. As we age, our bodies naturally lose collagen, which can cause cellulite to reappear over time. While Sculptra treatment may take some time to achieve optimal results, its longevity is unmatched among dermal fillers. Most patients can enjoy the benefits for 2 to 3 years, which is nearly twice as long as other leading treatments. To maintain the youthful results, a follow-up treatment once a year is recommended.
Sculptra gradually replaces lost collagen, resulting in a more youthful appearance. It can help improve the appearance of cellulite by:
As each patient is unique, the results may vary and touch-ups may be necessary to maintain the desired effect. Your doctor will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan based on your specific needs.
Absolutely. Some cosmetic treatments, like laser skin resurfacing, can carry risks of pigmentation side effects on medium or dark skin tones. However, Sculptra is safe and effective for patients of all skin types and colors, without any such restrictions. This versatile filler can be customized to achieve optimal results for every individual, regardless of their skin tone.
Unlike invasive cosmetic procedures, Sculptra neck rejuvenation involves little to no downtime. You can typically return to your normal daily activities right after the treatment, with only a few exceptions. For the first three hours following the injections, you should avoid applying any cosmetics to your neck or face, including makeup and moisturizer.
Sculptra is a versatile dermal filler that can be used on multiple areas of the face, making it stand out from other fillers that may only target specific regions. This flexibility means that Sculptra can help address a wide range of anti-aging concerns in a single treatment, potentially eliminating the need for additional procedures. Unlike other fillers, Sculptra can provide all-in-one solutions for concerns such as skin depressions, wrinkles, folds, and scars, as well as large volume corrections for facial fat loss (lipoatrophy). Your doctor can help determine if Sculptra is right for you based on your individual needs and beauty goals.
Sculptra treatment provides a gradual and natural-looking rejuvenation of the skin. While some improvements may be visible within the first week after treatment, optimal and long-lasting effects typically require a series of three sessions, spaced four to six weeks apart. The improvements will continue to develop over four to six months, with the best results achieved at that point. Unlike with surgical procedures, the gradual nature of Sculptra treatment avoids any sudden or artificial changes in your appearance.
Sculptra has been approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) since 2004, meaning it has undergone rigorous testing and has been deemed safe and effective for use.
If you desire to rejuvenate your neck and achieve a more youthful look, you may be a good candidate for Sculptra treatment. This injectable can address various concerns, including loose skin, volume loss, fine lines, and wrinkles, by plumping and softening the skin, filling hollows, and reducing various types of wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds, expression lines, and chin wrinkles. Sculptra is hypoallergenic and was approved by the FDA in 2009 for people with severe facial folds and healthy immune systems. However, it may not be suitable for everyone, especially pregnant or nursing women, or individuals with certain heart conditions or a history of cold sores. During your initial consultation, let your doctor know about your medical history and any pregnancy plans to determine if Sculptra is right for you.
While this dermal filler can be safely administered at any time of the year, timing can be important if you have a social outing coming up. Since it takes time for Sculptra to gradually restore lost collagen and improve skin texture, you should schedule your treatment sessions at least six months prior to your important event.
To ensure safe use and optimal results, it's important to follow your doctor's aftercare instructions. Here are some steps to take after each Sculptra session:
Residents of Alberta who meet the eligibility criteria can access essential physician services and specific dental and oral surgical healthcare services through the AHCIP. However, it's important to keep in mind that certain medical procedures, such as Sculptra for Cellulite, which are considered cosmetic and not medically necessary, are not covered by the AHCIP. This means that if your treatment falls into this category, it may not be covered by the AHCIP.
