In this article, we will discuss sculptra injection for the eye areas, from its definition and procedure, to how it can correct imperfections and rejuvenate your under-eye. Keep reading to find out how this treatment may be the one for you!
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra began as a liquid facelift used to improve the face’s overall appearance without any surgical means. The synthetic material of Sculptra, or l-poly-lactic acid, is safe and FDA-approved to replenish facial fat and collagen loss manifesting as fine lines, deep wrinkles, and sagging skin.
Sculptra is also suitable to inject around several areas, such as cheeks, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and eye bags. Patients who receive the injections can expect a reduction in imperfections such as droopiness, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkling around those areas.
What is Sculptra Eyes?
Sculptra Eyes is similar to Sculptra in general, except that it focuses on restoring lost collagen and facial fat around the eyes. Typically, patients who would undergo this treatment have hollow eyebags with fine lines around them.
The l-poly-lactic acid will act as replenishment for the natural facial fat loss that had caused them to have unappealing eyes. Along the way, the l-poly-lactic acid will stimulate collagen production, improving patients’ under-eye complexion and giving them more rejuvenated looks with fewer wrinkles, fine lines, and hollowness.
What to expect from Sculptra Eyes?
Patients who get Sculptra Eyes treatment can expect revitalised under-eye areas without worrying about the discomfort of going under the knife. This non-invasive treatment entails injecting l-poly-lactic acid, which can boost imperfections with comparable results to plastic surgery.
Furthermore, this treatment gives patients improved eye appearance along with security assurance. The main ingredient, l-poly-lactic acid, can provide tissue augmentation for a long time while remaining biocompatible, allowing patients’ bodies to absorb it over time, or approximately 25 months.
On the other hand, the injection contains l-poly-lactic acid, which promotes collagen production. It means that after receiving the treatment, patients’ skin will continue to produce collagen, allowing fine lines and wrinkles around the under-eye to diminish gradually.
Who is a suitable candidate for Sculptra Eyes?
The Sculptra Eyes treatment is ideal for most people who want to boost their self-esteem, especially those with hollow under-eye circles with fine lines around them. Although this treatment can give flawless-looking eyes, there are still precautions for to whom can receive it.
According to NCBI, the following are some conditions that may cause patients to reconsider their decision to receive the injection:
- Active inflammation around the injection site
- Allergy and hypersensitivity to l-poly-lactic acid
- Allergy and hypersensitivity to the numbing cream
Sculptra Eyes procedure
Sculptra Eyes, like other facial filler treatments, require a thorough procedure to ensure that the treatment goes smoothly and that the final results are as expected. The procedure sequence is also important to note because it directly affects the facial skin, which is the first part that attracts attention when it comes to beauty.
The first step for patients before getting Sculptra Eyes is to have a clinical consultation. A consultation with a medical aesthetics doctor will help them understand what they can expect from this treatment, including side effects and areas of improvement.
Moreover, our medical aesthetics doctor, Dr. Chau, will advise patients on what they should avoid consuming before the treatment during a consultation session. Alcohol and blood thinners are the things patients should refrain from as they increase the risk of bleeding. Also, he may suggest his patients avoid using makeup to ease the procedure.
Patients should come to the clinic for the procedure now that they know what to do (i.e., avoiding alcohol, blood thinners and makeup) following the previous consultation. Once they arrive at the clinic, the staff will prompt them to our medical aesthetics doctor, who will perform the treatment.
The first thing that patients will get is having their skin cleansed before receiving Sculptra injected into their under eyes. Cleansing the skin removes bacteria and dust particles that could lead to infection.
After getting their skin sanitised, our medical aesthetics doctor will apply numbing cream around the treatment area. Numbing cream, as the name suggests, relaxes the skin and minimises any discomfort during the procedure.
The paralysing agent should be working after several minutes of numbing cream application, or around 15 minutes. At this time, our medical aesthetics doctor will begin introducing Sculptra into the lower skin layers under the eyes to stimulate collagen production, which will result in filling effects.
The injection step is relatively short so that patients can squeeze in the treatment in between their hectic schedules. However, it is essential that they return for, if any, subsequent sessions to achieve the optimal looks they are longing for.
Patients with Sculptra injected into the hollow under-eye or tear trough area are more likely to experience the side effects. Thankfully, they should be at ease knowing that once the side effects wear off, the filling or contouring results will be visible.
However, patients should avoid scrubbing the newly treated area to get the optimal contoured under-eye. Scrubbing can lead to infection and hinder the healing process.
Common side effects from Sculptra Eyes
We previously stated that Sculptra Eyes injections have side effects that patients should be aware of, particularly when it comes to taking care of them. You may be wondering what the possible side effects are.
According to Healthline, introducing Sculptra into the lower layers of under-eye skin commonly cause the following conditions:
- Painful sensation
- Minor bleeding
Although there may be some side effects after the procedure, these will generally go away within a few days, and patients should do nothing but wait for their skin to heal on its own. However, if the side effects persist for an extended time, they can always seek assistance from our medical aesthetics doctor.
How long do the final results last?
The first time Sculptra was introduced into the lower layer of the under-eye skin, it worked by promoting collagen production. The loss of facial fat restoration effect, on the other hand, will take time to kick in after the skin has healed from the side effects.
Although it takes time for patients to notice the natural enhancement that the treatment provides, we are confident that the final results will be long-lasting.
Sculptra typically lasts approximately 25 months, allowing our patients to enjoy their rejuvenated and youthful-looking skin without the need for frequent touch-ups.
How much does Sculptra for under-eye cost?
The cost of Sculptra Eyes typically depends on each patient’s under-eye skin issues. Hence, determining the actual pricing will require them to check their conditions as well as address their concerns and expectations with Dr Dylan Chau.
Our clinic, on the other hand, offers this treatment starting from S$800. The number of injections received by each patient will then determine the total costs, which is why we recommend that they come in for a consultation.
Getting a charming eye look is now as simple as getting Sculptra injections, which take so little time that you can fit them in between your hectic activities.
Most importantly, this article has given you a lot of important information about the procedure so you can feel more confident about getting it.
