Sculptra Knees

An outcry is being heard for a treatment that is noninvasive and lifts and tightens the skin that sags around aging knees and elbows. Sagging skin happens because knee joints are exposed to sun damage and frequent movements that cause skin laxity and aging.

There are several treatment options for tightening the face, hand, neck, and décolleté with non-invasive injectables, but sagging elbows and knees have been ignored until now.

Sculptra, an injectable cosmetic filler used to restore facial volume, is also used to help with upper knee skin laxity. Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid or PLLA, a biocompatible synthetic substance that stimulates collagen production.

Although Sculptra is used in the face for facial rejuvenation it can be injected in the knees to smooth out the wrinkles and crepey skin in that area.

For most aesthetic patients, you will need several sessions to relieve saggy knees. There is a little downtime, and you may have a bit of swelling, numbness, and redness for a few hours following the procedure.

How Does Sculptra for Knees Work?

Collagen is the main component in keeping your skin looking smooth, and as you grow older your natural production of collagen decreases, and wrinkles begin to form. Using Sculptra at the hands of a certified aesthetician you can gracefully restore the skin above your knees.

Sculptra is a cosmetic filler made of poly-L-lactic acid that is injected into the skin. It works to stimulate the production of collagen. It reduces the appearance of laxity around the knees and elbows that have developed over time.

Is Sculptra Right for My Knees?

Stop ignoring the sagging skin on your knees. You may not think much about your knees, but they are exposed to sun damage, and if you want to look younger you need to take care of the skin around your knees.

When you undergo treatment, a topical anesthetic or numbing agent is used to help minimize any discomfort. Your provider will use Sculptra to treat the identified and targeted areas and your appointment may take about 60-90 minutes.

After treatment you can resume your everyday activities.  You may feel some discomfort or bruising following the procedure, but you need no recovery time after treatment. Any bruising that occurs will resolve within a few weeks. The results achieved by using Sculptra for your knee problems become natural-looking gradually over a few weeks. Your results can last up to two years or longer.
