At OM Medispa in Elgin, IL, we strongly believe that everyone should feel comfortable and confident in his or her own skin. That’s why we are proud to offer many different aesthetic treatments to help you enhance your aesthetic, including treatments like Sculptra.
How Many Vials of Sculptra Will I Need?
By far, this is one of the most frequently asked questions we get about Sculptra. Everybody is unique, and there is no one-size-fits-all answer. To tell you how many vials you will need, you must come in for an initial consultation so we can review your aesthetic goals and bone and muscle structure.
With that being said, there is a pretty good rule of thumb to consider. The average client needs a vial per decade of age. Put another way, if you are 45, you will probably need four and a half vials of Sculptra to achieve your desired aesthetic. If you are 60, you will probably need six vials.
What Areas Can I Treat?
The rule of a vial per decade of age applies to the face, neck, and chest. Most often, clients use this treatment to reverse the signs of aging, such as wrinkles and volume loss, around the temples, chin, jawline, and cheeks.
However, some clients don’t use it as an anti-aging treatment. Some, for example, have given birth, and during pregnancy, their buttocks changed shape. These clients use these injections to enhance the aesthetic of the buttocks, and they typically require between three and five vials per side and two to three treatment sessions (12 to 30 vials total) to get their results.
How Long Will It Take to See the Results of Treatment?
This is another thing that varies on a case-by-case basis. In general, you can expect to see the results of treatment over the course of four to six months. Factors that affect this include the extent of your volume loss, the number of vials added, and the health of your existing collagen.
Clients with extensive volume loss and subsequent addition with weak existing collagen can expect to see improvements over the course of nine months. In a world full of instant gratification, we can say confidently that the results of this treatment are certainly worth the wait.
How Long Will the Results Last?
Of course, nothing can stop the aging process. For nearly a year, your results will continue to improve. But even as you achieve your final results, time marches on. On average, the results last for three years after you achieve your final results.
