The Ultimate Guide to Sculptra in Costa Rica

Signs of aging on your face? Sculptra in Costa Rica can eliminate wrinkles and make you look younger. You can get this cosmetic treatment done in Costa Rica when you go for a holiday there.

Sculptra is a unique dermal filler as it is made of poly-L-lactic acid that gives long -lasting results. It is used for nose-to-mouth lines, lines around the lips and chin wrinkles. This filler works by actually stimulating the production of natural collagen under the skin, so the results also look more natural.

Unlike other dermal fillers, it is injected deep into the skin using a special injection technique. Massage is an important part of its use and you have to massage your skin according to medical advice following treatment regularly till the product integrates. If you don’t, it can form lumps. Apart from cosmetic reasons alone, it is also used in those patients who suffer from facial wasting due to HIV.

Why consider Sculptra in Costa Rica?

In this Central American country, you can have a memorable holiday enjoying yourself either in the forests and parks or beaches. It is known for its adventure and eco-tourism and its biodiversity, which is in high proportion to its landmass.

Costa Rica welcomes visitors from all over the world, but more especially from Canada and the U.S. It is easily accessible thanks to the two international airports, the Juan Santamaria International Airport close to San Jose and the Daniel Obuder International Airport in Liberia. As a resident of many countries, you will get a visa-free entry, so travel is even easier. 

Close to both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea (there is one place where you can literally have one foot in each) it is famous for more than 300 beaches. These have different sands and waters and the sand may be white, grey, beige or brown. The waters may be calm and still or just right for surfing. It is no wonder that the country sees more than 1.7 million tourists annually who go to its shores for all kinds of natural activities. Of these at least 50,000 are medical tourists, lured by the good quality medical care at affordable rates.

Known for its adventure and nature tourism, it has numerous parks, forests and reserves that are home to exotic species of plants and wildlife, birds and insects. You will be able to spot macaws, toucans, capuchins and unique butterflies in the parks and gardens. You may also be able to see jaguars and tapirs and quetzal. Even the waters have rare species like various whales, dolphins and sea turtles.

From hiking and trekking to climbing volcanoes to diving and snorkeling you can experience the highs and lows of nature in all its wonder and beauty in Costa Rica.

How long does Sculptra procedure take and what is the estimated recovery period?

The product is injected into the skin and the whole treatment can take as little as half an hour. It is important that any deficiencies are not overcorrected as it takes time for the results to show. You may have a topical anesthetic used to minimize the pain of the injections.

You may have some swelling, redness and bruising but this should subside in a few days. The initial results can be due to swelling, but final results can take several months to be visible as natural collagen takes time to form. As natural collagen forms, the results last much longer.
