Renew Aesthetic Clinic Offers Sculptra: The classic bio-stimulatory dermal filler or collagen stimulator
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra (PLLA) stands for (Poly-L-Lactic Acid) has been around for many years. Yvonne Yan Duan initially injected it for volumizing patients who suffered from active HIV AIDs who were on antiviral cocktail in 2007. These patient suffered severe facial lipodystrophy. Sculptra is not an easy agent to inject or manage. First of all, it is expensive, and one must diluted 48-72 hours ahead prior to injection, so Sculptra could properly be reconstituted into a suspension. When injecting Sculptra, needle clogging can happen despite the best effort of properly mixing Sculptra.
How we use Sculptra at Renew Aesthetic Clinic:
Yet Sculptra is unique in so many ways. In the state of Oregon, only physicians and nurse practitioners have the license to purchase and inject Sculptra. In contrast, HA fillers can be injected by LPNs, RNs, nurse practitioners, and physicians. Sculptra is injected for its natural looking results and long lasting results. When it is done well and properly, it is also the most desirable injectable agent for skin tightening for neck, decollete, buttocks, and thighs. At Renew, we combine Cellfina the cellulite dimpling release device and Sculptra injection to give our patients the best results for Cellulite reduction and skin tightening in the same area.
RENEW AESTHETIC CLINIC offers Sculptra for a select group of patients for natural and lasting results. Our nurse practitioner Yan has been certified as a Sculptra provider for more than 13 years. If you are interested in Sculptra, call us (971) 470-3186 for a consult.
How does Sculptra Aesthetic Work?
It works slow and steady with strength. It is made with biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material called poly-L lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments administered by a trained specialist.
What is the indication of Sculptra?
Sculptra is indicated for use in people with healthy immune systems as a single regimen for the correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles in which deep dermal grid pattern (cross-hatch) injection technique is appropriate.
What are some possible side effects?
The most common side effects after initial treatment include injection site swelling, tenderness, redness, pain, bruising, bleeding, itching and lumps. Other side effects may include small lumps under the skin that are sometimes noticeable when pressing on the treated area. Larger lumps, some with delayed onset with or without inflammation or skin discoloration, have also been reported.
