How is Sculptra injected?
Sculptra requires multiple sessions done over a 12-week process. In the first session, Dr. Kane will inject 2 vials of Sculptra, one for each side of the face. Each vial is diluted with water and lidocaine that immediately numbs the face as soon as Dr. Kane injects into the face. Sculptra will be injected into that area of the face from the temples into the cheeks and all the way down into the jawline as required to achieve the desired results.
Following this first session, patients should not expect to see any changes in the face for 3 months. This first session is strictly meant to lay down the first foundation to initiate your face to begin stimulating your own collagen production. You will notice a very positive swelling of the tissues but this will quickly absorb.
In the second session, 6 weeks later, Dr. Kane will administer 1 to 2 more vials in the same temple, cheeks and jawline. It is in this second session that your face will begin to increase its collagen production filling in the deep and superficial levels of the face. As the subtle changes begin, you will start to see the anti-aging effects appear in front of your eyes daily. In another 6 weeks later, you will return to see Dr. Kane for a re-evaluation to determine if another 1 to 2 vials are necessary to fulfill your desired results. Excitedly, you will continue to enjoy the plumping and filling of your wrinkles, folds, and hollows of your face for up to 25 months. To see yourself anti-age vs age is truly the magic of the Sculptra Secret.
