Let Sculptra Give You a Hand
- Posted on: Feb 14 2020
Your hands might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about cosmetic procedures or injections, but the skin on your hands go through a lot. In fact, your hands are one of the most sun-damaged parts of your body. This sun damage means your hands are likely to show signs of aging due to lose of elasticity. Don’t worry though, Dr. Kristin Tarbet has a way to make sure your hands stay looking young without an invasive procedure.
That’s Where Sculptra Comes in
Sculptra is one of the newest FDA-approved injectables. It is used to treat a variety of areas of the body that are in need of a little volume restoration. Areas other than the hands include your chin, cheeks, under eyes, and temples. Sculptra is non-invasive, meaning there is virtually no downtime. You likely won’t see your results immediately but over a few weeks the skin will plump up and be noticeable fuller.
Sculptra is a synthetic material made of poly-L-lactic acid. This acid has been used in medical procedures for years, making it very safe. It works by stimulating your own skin in its collagen production which makes skin thicker and fuller.
What Else Makes Sculptra Special?
Another thing that sets Sculptra apart from other fillers like Juvederm and Restylane, its results can last for about twice as long, giving you smoother, youthful looking hands for up to two years vs only one year.
Sculptra can be done quickly right inside our office. And don’t worry about it being painful, before we administer the injections, the areas of treatment can be numbed with a topical anesthetic cream or local anesthetic to reduce discomfort.
If you have started to notice a loss of collagen and fullness in your hands, you may want to consider getting Sculptra injections. During your initial consultation with Dr. Kristin Tarbet, she will perform a physical and oral assessment to evaluate whether that you are healthy enough for these injections.
