Preparing for Sculptra®
Avoid taking aspirin or any products that can thin the blood. You may have bruising at the site of injection if you take blood thinners or if you are a smoker. If you exercise regularly, you may wish not to do so before attending your injection session, as strenuous exercise may increase swelling in the injection area. You should also discontinue taking herbal supplements including vitamin E, fish oil, and ginkgo biloba at least 1-2 weeks before the procedure.
You will have little, if any, downtime from a Sculptra® injection. If you bruise easily, it can take 7-10 days for the bruise to go away. As with many dermal fillers, there is no limitation to your activities or schedule after having a Sculptra® treatment. Typically, patients who have Sculptra® may feel a little swelling, tenderness, or bumps at the injection site. These will diminish quickly.
Is Sculptra® Right for Me?
If you are concerned about the look of deep facial wrinkles or folds around the nose and mouth, you may be a good candidate for Sculptra®. Dr. Swift can properly ascertain if Sculptra® is the right treatment choice for you.
How Much Does Sculptra® Cost?
Costs for your Sculptra® treatment will vary depending on the number of treatments needed to achieve your desired result. Most insurance plans do not cover plastic surgery or specific cosmetic treatments. Dr. Swift accepts payment via cash, check, or credit card, as well as Prosper Healthcare Lending as a financing option.
