If you would recall, Sculptra helps to achieve global facial volume replacement through natural collagen stimulation with l-poly-lactic acid. Known as ‘the liquid facelift’, this treatment would substantially increase the collagen of your skin to correct the folds, wrinkles and skin laxity as a consequence of aging. The result looks and feels more natural than what fillers can do, and can potentially last twice as long.
Here is a progress stage comparison for easy reference :
From the above picture, you can see the obvious changes after the 1st treatment session where I’ve developed a ‘fuller’ cheeks and a more volumised face shape.
As mentioned in my previous post, 1 treatment session is usually not enough to achieve the ideal face shape. Also, as the stimulation of your natural collagen requires some time and constant stimulation, it is common for the swelling to reduce after just 1 session as advised by Dr Dylan Chau who is a Sculptra trainer for doctors and takes his anti-aging treatments to a whole new realm.
Comparing my side profile before any treatment and my side profile 2 months later, you can actually see some difference. My cheek is not as relatively indent anymore, but somehow sunken.
I went back for my 2nd session at Celevenus and here is the immediate effect aftermath.
This was taken before the 2nd treatment started.
My side profiles :
A comparison between a ‘before’ and ‘after’ Sculptra treatment :
You can actually see that the right side is more plump up after the treatment.
It is more obvious if you view it from the side profile.
To provide a better comparison, here is a side by side pictures of my right side profiles, before and after the treatment :
And now for the left side profile :
And this is how my front view look :
Pardon the yellow light. It was taken right after my treatment and after touching up some light make-up.
Celevenus has a dressing room that provides personal space as they understand how self-conscious ladies would be after their treatments, thus catering to customers’ needs. Very thoughtful, I must say. 🙂
Comparison of before and after treatment of my front view profile :
Oh yes, another benefit that I derived from the Sculptra treatment is that it helps in reducing the appearance of my nasolabial folds!!!
I cannot stand looking at the mirror with these annoying folds staring hard back at me, wondering how to eradicate them and now I can with the help of Sculptra! On top of that, I’ve tried various anti-ageing products and also to apply them in the usual outwards and upwards lifting motion to defy the gravity but to no avail. I am quite sure these folds are caused by both ageing and loss of facial volume, which gradually became more and more prominent.
I am extremely glad that Sculptra has help to erase, if not significantly reduce them.
The swelling will subside gradually but through natural collagen stimulation with l-poly-lactic acid, Sculptra treatment would substantially increase the collagen of your skin to correct the folds, wrinkles and skin laxity as a consequence of aging. Following an average of three treatment sessions over a few months, or Dr Dylan Chau recommends, can produce a more natural, younger looking appearance that can last more than 2 years or 25 months.
Tell me how can I not be anything more than elated when I’m about to experience a ‘time travel back into the past’ with my skin’s age and appearance? 😉
