The results of Sculptra injections are not immediate. However, the effects of the treatments are enduring and will continue to improve. Skin thickness can increase over the course of several weeks, and will require a second treatment to touch up the area. Unlike other absorbable injectables that last only a few months, the benefits of Sculptra can last up to three years. The results is visible after 4-6 weeks and can last 3 years. The results improve over time as our collagen production increases. No one can ever guess you had an aesthetic procedure done as the results is very natural and subtle.
How Is It Done?
The short term side effect of any injection, including Sculptra, is redness which goes away in a few hours, swelling or mild bruising which subsides in less than a week. To make the redness, swelling or bruising go away faster, you can apply ice over the area 2-3 times a day, for 5 minutes each time. There is very little downtime. There is usually no long term side effect and is very safe. Sculptra is not suitable for people with autoimmune diseases, such as lupus, SLE and rheumatoid arthritis.
Costs For Hands Treatment
Each vial of Sculptra costs RM1800 . We use 1 vial on each treatment session to do both hands. For the first session, it costs RM1800. After a minimum interval of 1 month, we use another 1 vial to do both hands so it costs another RM1800 for the second session.
Costs For Feet Treatment
We need 2 vials to do both feet as the feet has a bigger surface area than the hands. For the first session, it costs RM3600. After a minimum interval of 1 month, we use another 2 vials to do both feet, so the second session costs another RM3600.
Before Sculptra, veins and tendons are prominent and there is loss of volume on the back of the hands.
