Proper aftercare is necessary in order to help get the best possible results. Your doctor will give you specific instructions at each injection session. The following general guidelines will help you get the most from your treatment: Within the first 24 hours of treatment, help reduce swelling by applying a cloth-wrapped ice pack to the area for a few minutes at a time. Avoid applying ice directly to the skin. Post-treatment, massage the treated area for 5 minutes 5 times a day for 5 days, as recommended by your aesthetic provider. This will help evenly distribute Sculptra Aesthetic. Until any initial swelling and redness goes away, avoid excessive sunlight and UV lamp exposure.
If there are no complications, makeup can be applied several hours after treatment. Consult your aesthetic provider after treatment.
On average, 2-3 treatment sessions are needed over the course of a few months, but treatment does vary, so talk to your aesthetic provider about the treatment option that’s right for you.
