When asked what makes the face look older, most people say fine lines and wrinkles. While that is certainly true, it is not the only answer. Sunken cheeks and facial sagging can make us look older than we feel. Sculptra® is a revolutionary treatment that can restore volume to the face while correcting other skin imperfections. This injectable filler is approved by the FDA to help replace some of the collagen that has been lost over the years. It can help turn back the hands of time and rejuvenate your look.
What Is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® uses biodegradable a poly-L-lactic acid. When strategically injected, your body will slowly absorb it while rebuilding its own natural collagen. The injections are placed in the deep dermis where the natural strands of collagen are located. These very essential strands are what support the structure and volume of your face. When they are rebuilt, your face is left looking firmer and younger.
What Are the Benefits?
The most important benefit of this treatment is that it stimulates natural collagen production. Collagen is the key building block in healthy and youthful looking skin. Topical creams and supplements are not nearly as effective as the collagen your own body can produce.
There are many other benefits of Sculptra®, including:
- It restores facial volume lost to either aging or illness
- Results are subtle and natural-looking
- The procedure is quick and minimally-invasive
- It will improve the overall texture and tone of your skin
- The results are long-lasting in comparison to other fillers
- There is no downtime after Sculptra® treatments
Who Should Consider Sculptra®?
This treatment is designed for those bothered by the appearance of sunken cheeks as well as fine lines and wrinkles. Those skin imperfections are an indication that your skin has lost volume, which is exactly what this treatment is designed to correct.
On average, people receive two to three treatments over the course of a few months. Your improvements with Sculptra® will develop over time, giving you very natural-looking results. New enhancements to the solution we use allows results to last up to two years.
