It is very important not to use blood thinners during the injection process of this gel. Therefore, discuss all the medications you are taking with your doctor. Sculptra gel injection is usually done on an outpatient basis in less than an hour in a doctor’s office or clinic. Sometimes the doctor also uses local anesthetic during injection to reduce the pain of people. Before injecting Sculpetra, the doctor dilutes Sculpetra suspension with sterile water and lidocaine and starts the injection process with the help of a very delicate syringe. This filler must be injected evenly under the skin, and unlike other fillers, it cannot be injected pointwise. By massaging the injected area, the doctor prevents the formation of bumps or knots under the skin. The injection of this collagen gel tightens the skin and causes overall tissue improvement. It is better to repeat the gel injection two to three times in a few months to get a better and more successful result. The shelf life of Sculptra filler gel is that its effects appear gradually and its shelf life is between two to three years. Therefore, you should not expect the results immediately after injecting this gel. Sometimes even a few days after the injection, you may look like before the injection. With three gel injection sessions over several months, you can complete the effects of this gel. Sometimes, immediately after the injection of Sculptra gel, your desired area may look full, which is only due to the water contained in the gel ingredients, and it subsides after a few days. The real and lasting effects of this Sculptra gel are usually determined after a month. However, its treatment results are more lasting and satisfactory than other injectable skin gels. One must be patient during the injection process for the Sculptra gel, otherwise the expected results will not be produced for him. The areas suitable for Sculptra injection are not suitable for eliminating surface lines such as lines around the eyes, but it can improve moderate to deep facial wrinkles, including chin wrinkles and wrinkles between the nose and mouth. Nasolabial folds, which are also known as smile lines, are caused by the sagging of the cheeks and the reduction of skin collagen. In these folds, instead of injecting the gel directly at the place of the fold, it is better to inject it into the person’s cheeks so that the skin is lifted and its appearance looks smoother. Recently, Sculptra gel is even used to give volume to thighs and hips. Note that facial contour deficiencies should not be overcorrected with Sculptra Gel. Also, Sculptra gel should not be injected into blood vessels. This will cause blockage of blood vessels, infarction or embolism phenomenon. It is not allowed to use this gel on skin wounds, cysts, pimples, hives or infection and the red area (vermilion) of the lips. Side effects of Sculptra gel must be injected into people’s skin by a specialist doctor; Because only doctors know the exact instructions for injecting Sculptra gel. As a result, going to unreliable centers and entrusting the work to inexperienced people can bring irreparable complications for the individual. The most common side effects after the initial treatment are keloid formation, skin discoloration, hypertrophic ulcer, swelling, sensitivity to touch, redness, pain, bruising, bleeding, itching, and lumps at the injection site. The lumps are sometimes very small and can be identified only by touching the hand, but sometimes they are larger, in any case, the presence of any lump after the injection should be checked by a doctor, most of the lumps disappear after a month. Bumps and lumps can sometimes appear a few months after the injection, this indicates improper injection and the use of incorrect techniques in filler injection, and often occurs when the gel is injected too superficially or the area is not massaged.

This gel is one of the synthetic and non-animal fillers that does not require an allergy test, and its main ingredient is polylactic acid or polylactide (PLA). PLA is actually a kind of natural substance that is very important in cell metabolism. Lactic acid is already present in the human body. Are the results of Sculptra injection tangible at the first moment? Unlike other hyaluronic acid fillers, the real results of Sculptra gel usually show up a few weeks or months after injection. But on average, you need a period of four to six weeks to see the full results and effects of injecting this gel. Microscopic Sculptera crystals cause a mild inflammatory reaction under the skin after injection. With this, skin collagenization is stimulated and the white blood cells around the Sculptera crystals produce collagen-producing fibroblasts. In this way, the results of increasing the volume of the face will be visible after four to six weeks. How long is the recovery period after Sculptra filler injection? The injection of this gel requires a short recovery time and people can do their normal daily activities after the injection. But sometimes people rest at home until the effects of swelling and redness completely disappear. How long does Sculptra gel last and how effective is it? The lasting results of Sculptra gel are very long compared to other fillers such as Restylane, Radiesse M, Cosmoplast M and collagen and will last up to three years. Is Sculptra gel injection painful? The pain caused by the injection of this gel is different for each person, a group finds the injection of this gel painful and another group does not feel any burning or pain when injecting it; In any case, this is a personal issue. But the doctor usually adds the anesthetic lidocaine to the Sculptera suspension to reduce the pain caused by it to a minimum to relieve the patient’s anxiety and comfort.
