After receiving Sculptra injections, it is important to follow certain guidelines to optimize your results and minimize potential complications. Here are some recommendations on what to avoid after injecting Sculptra:
- Touching or massaging the treated area: To allow the Sculptra to properly settle and distribute within the tissues, it is advisable to avoid touching or massaging the treated area for a few days following the injections.
- Applying makeup or skincare products: It is generally recommended to avoid applying makeup or skincare products directly on the treated area immediately after Sculptra injections.
- Exposure to excessive heat: For the first 24 to 48 hours after Sculptra injections, it is advisable to avoid activities or environments that generate excessive heat. This includes saunas, hot tubs, steam rooms, sunbathing, or prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. Heat can increase swelling and potentially affect the distribution of Sculptra.
- Strenuous exercise or physical activity: Engaging in intense physical activities, heavy lifting, or strenuous exercise immediately after Sculptra injections can lead to increased swelling, bruising, or discomfort. It is recommended to avoid such activities for a few days to allow for proper healing.
- Consuming alcohol or blood-thinning medications: Alcohol and certain medications, such as aspirin or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), can increase the risk of bruising and bleeding.
- Sleeping on your face: To prevent undue pressure or displacement of the Sculptra product, it is generally recommended to avoid sleeping on your face immediately after the injections. Sleeping in an elevated position or on your back can help minimize swelling and optimize the results.
- Neglecting follow-up appointments: Sculptra typically requires a series of treatments scheduled several weeks apart to achieve optimal results. It is essential to attend all scheduled follow-up appointments as recommended by Dr. Ahmad Othman, dermatologist and Medical Director, Dermaone Dubai.
Remember, these guidelines are general recommendations, and it is important to follow the specific instructions provided by Dr. Ahmad Othman, dermatologist and Medical Director, Dermaone Dubai. He will provide personalized aftercare instructions based on your individual needs and the extent of your Sculptra treatment.
