Revitalize Your Face with Sculptra Treatment at Thrive Med Spa and Wellness

At Thrive Med Spa and Wellness of Honolulu, Hawaii, we see patients in the area who are concerned about loss of volume in the face. We typically recommend a face volume loss treatment known as Sculptra for these individuals. Sculptra is an aesthetic injectable used to treat wrinkles, folds, and facial volume loss. It is a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator that works within the deep dermis to stimulate your skin’s natural collagen production.

What can I expect during my Sculptra injection appointment?

Sculptra is a minimally invasive procedure where small amounts of Sculptra are injected into the targeted areas in the face using very fine needles. The injections may cause minimal discomfort, but we can provide a topical numbing cream or local anesthesia to help minimize any potential pain.

During your Sculptra injection appointment, Dr. Scott Sanderson and his medical professionals at Thrive Med Spa and Wellness first clean the targeted areas on your face with an antiseptic solution. They will then mark the injection points and begin the process of injecting small amounts of Sculptra into the deep dermis layer of your skin.

How do I care for my skin after my Sculptra injections have been performed?

After the injections for cheek volume loss, you may experience some redness, swelling, and possible bruising in the treated areas. This is normal and should subside within a few days. It is important to avoid any strenuous activity or excessive sun exposure for at least one to two days after your treatment.

What are the benefits of Sculptra?

Sculptra offers several benefits for those looking to address facial volume loss. Some of these include:

  • Long-lasting results. Sculptra has been proven to provide long-lasting results, with many patients reporting improvements in their facial volume and wrinkles for up to two years.
  • Natural-looking improvements. As Sculptra stimulates the production of your skin’s own collagen, the results appear gradual and natural-looking. This allows for a more subtle enhancement of your facial features.
  • Safe and effective. Sculptra is FDA-approved and has been used in over 40+ countries worldwide with successful results.
  • Minimal downtime. Since Sculptra is a minimally invasive procedure, no downtime is typically involved. You can resume your normal activities often right after your visit.
