Have you been thinking of treating yourself and turning back the clock a few years on agin. Chances are that you are considering Sculptra Aesthetic, Restalyne Fillers, and Dysport. Each of these procedures can help you transform the way you look. No matter what your goals might be, the right procedure makes all the difference.

Sculptra Aesthetic

Sculptra Aesthetic involves the use of injections which gradually stimulate the natural collagen in your body to restore facial structure. Research reveals aging causes individuals to lose 10 percent of fat from their faces by the time they reach the age of 35. Around 5 percent to 10 percent of your facial volume is lost every 5 to 10 years from then onwards. Through Sculptra Aesthetic, you can restore the lost volume.

Besides, Sculptra Aesthetic would also provide long-lasting results when compared to traditional fillers. It is an effective procedure that anyone can undergo to restore balance and youth to their jawline, midface, and temple.

What to Expect From Sculptra Aesthetic?

During your first visit to the doctor will have a discussion with you regarding the effects of Sculptra Aesthetic. We will tell you about expectations and your facial structure will be assessed to develop a treatment plan.

Since the injections contain lidocaine, you would experience a numbing sensation which would allow you to overcome the discomfort. Once the injections have been used, you will receive a massage. Lastly, the practitioner would provide aftercare instructions.

To achieve the desired results, you would require around 4 to 6 Sculptra Aesthetic vials. Two injections would be used in one go. This means that it should take anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks for the treatment to be completed. However, an annual touch-up vital is recommended to maintain the results. Generally, the results last around 2 to 3 years.

Restalyne Fillers

Restalyne fillers use hyaluronic acid to smooth wrinkles. The treatment is suitable for people with various needs such as those wanting to add volume to their cheeks, to target lines around the mouth, to minimize the dark circles near the eyes, and requiring lip filler. Typically, hyaluronic acid is used for aesthetic procedures as it occurs naturally. Since getting Restalyne fillers is quick, almost anyone can go for it. However, it is not recommended to someone who has a bacterial protein allergy, uses blood thinners, is under 21, immunocompromised, or breastfeeding.

What to Expect From Restalyne Fillers?

Restalyne fillers place volume under the skin when you have lost collagen or any other tissue. It smooths and lifts your skin to ensure that you look plump. Restalyne fillers contain hyaluronic acid which clings to the water. The water from the acid helps add volume by attracting more water and preserves it.

A great thing about getting Restalyne fillers is that it is an easy cosmetic procedure that does not involve any incision and would be performed at the medical practitioner’s office. Local anesthesia is applied for minimizing discomfort. The amount of time it takes for the procedure to be completed depends entirely on how much work you require. Therefore, it could take a few minutes or even 30 minutes. 

The medical expert would select the injection sites and clean them using an antiseptic. Then, it would be determined how much work you need and the Restalyne fillers would be injected into your skin for treating the desired areas. You can rely on the procedure for treating wrinkles, facial folds, cheeks, and lips.

Healing time varies based on where you received the injections and their quantity. You should expect some bruising, swelling, or redness which would take around a week to disappear. It is advised that you limit your exposure to the sun. Otherwise, you would only add pain to the bruising or swelling.

If you opt for multiple injections, it is best that you take a day out to rest. It takes about a week to see full results. However, you should notice immediate effects following the procedure. Since Restalyne fillers are not permanent, you will have to maintain the results by getting more injections. Generally, the fillers offer results for anywhere from 6 to 18 months. Fortunately, you would not need to alter activities to get fully healed.


Dysport has become incredibly popular in recent times. The reason behind this is that it is much stronger than most neuromodulators and offers quick results. In fact, some patients can expect to achieve results within a day or two. If you are struggling to get rid of forehead lines, you will find Dysport to be a cost-effective option. Some of the areas that you can expect to treat when you undergo the treatment are mentioned below.


  • Crow’s feet
  • Bunny lines
  • Frown lines
  • Forehead lines
  • Furrowed brows
  • Vertical lip lines
  • Eyebrow reshaping
  • Early signs of aging

 What to Expect From Dysport?

When you undergo the procedure, you will experience some redness once the injection has been used. However, the redness should resolve within half an hour. Although it is rare for small needle bruising to occur, it is still possible. You must avoid touching the injected areas for a minimum of 4 hours. Fortunately, you should be able to carry out all your activities the next day including exercise. It takes around 3-7 days for optimal results to show. A complimentary touch-up appointment will be included to ensure that you get the best results. Since the results offered by Dysport are temporary, most seek the treatment every 3 to 4 months. It will allow you to maintain a youthful appearance.
