Rejuvenate the Skin with Sculptra
Sculptra is an FDA approved poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) treatment that is injected into the face that assists in the stimulation of new collagen fibers. Designed to reduce the visible signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines in the forehead, around the mouth and eyes, Sculptra can help you achieve a younger looking appearance.
How Does Aging Affect Collagen?
Collagen is a major component of your skin responsible for maintaining shape and structure that assists in supporting tissues and elasticity. As we age, collagen levels decrease, leaving skin sagging and reducing its moisture content.
Given how important collagen is to the aging process, Sculptra treatment helps you in reducing the effects of collagen loss by adding volume that plumps and fills the skin even at the deepest levels. Your skin will look and feel firmer and fuller.
How Sculptra Treatment Works
Sculptra is designed to stimulate collagen growth in a natural way. Patients use Sculptra to restore volume in many areas of the face, such as the nasolabial folds (smile lines), vertical wrinkles in front of the ears, chin wrinkles, marionette lines, radial cheek folds and other problem areas. This treatment shows results in a gradual and natural looking way, with improvements of your appearance becoming visible in just a few months and lasting up to two years. Individual results and treatment strategies vary, but you will love your newer, more youthful appearance. Side effects are minimal but may include redness and swelling at the site of treatment, tenderness and pain, lumps, itching, bruising and bleeding.
How Does Sculptra Reduce Visible Signs of Aging?
Sculptra is injected into the skin of the target area and penetrates deep within to stimulate the natural production of collagen over time. The loss of facial fullness as the result of aging is restored and structures are reinforced for an appearance that looks and feels younger.
What Areas Can Be Treated with Sculptra?
Many areas of the face can be treated with Sculptra, but patients typically choose to fill the cheeks and soften cheekbones and other areas around the mid-face. Sculptra can also be used on hollow temples and the lines that form around the nasolabial folds which are the lines that form around the nostrils.
Can Sculptra be Used on Other Areas of the Body?
Sculptra was initially FDA-approved for the face, but is now frequently used on other areas of the body to produce a firmer and plumper appearance. For instance, Sculptra can lift and enhance the buttocks, reduce the appearance of saggy skin under the arms, improve wrinkles above the knees and to fill loose skin of the décolleté, which is the area of the neck and chest.
How Many Sculptra Treatments are Required to Achieve the Final Look?
Your treatment strategy will be custom created to cater to your individual goals. Typically, patients receive a course of three treatments over several months in order to achieve the final result. Your treatment plan will determine the number of injections needed to achieve the correction you are seeking at each appointment.
