Unfortunately, gravity and time can have a negative effect on your skin. With age, it’s not uncommon to notice wrinkles along your face and neck and a sagging jawline. Dermal fillers and other injectables like Botox can be extremely helping in helping you improve the look of your skin and stop wrinkles from getting worse. However, some patients simply lack the structure and volume in their skin to make these treatments effective. Luckily, there is Sculptra.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is a cosmetic injectable that is made up of a synthetic form of poly-l-lactic acid. Poly-l-lactic acid is naturally found in the body, usually following physical activities like working out. This substance works as a powerful collage stimulator. Collagen is responsible for maintaining the volume of tissue. Sculptra works in a similar way, encouraging the body to increase collagen production within four to six months. Over time, this increase in collagen will improve the elasticity of sagging skin, making it smoother, and tighter.
Is Sculptra Right for You?
If you’ve experienced loss of volume in certain areas of your skin due to aging or significant weight loss, Sculptra can help you regain some of the elasticity in your skin. During your initial consultation, one of our medical professionals will evaluate your unique situation and determine if Sculptra is the right choice.
Although Sculptra does not offer immediate results, you will begin to notice improved skin volume and elasticity in as little as four months. You will continue to see improvement for up to nine months after your initial treatment. Once you’ve begun experiencing the effects of Sculptra, you can speak with your technician to determine if you are a good candidate for dermal fillers or other injectables to help you achieve even better results.
Sculptra injections are virtually painless and require no downtime. Once your treatment is complete, you will be able to resume your normal daily activities immediately. Sculptra will continue to be in effect for about two years after your initial treatment, making this injectable a cost-effective investment in the health of your skin.
