When you look in the mirror, does the person looking back at you look older than you feel? If so, consider Sculptra®. Designed to help treat volume loss and lines and wrinkles, this cosmetic procedure could make you look years younger. It is non-surgical and will not take you away from your normal daily life.
What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® treatments consist of simple injections. The main ingredient in these injections is poly-L-lactic acid. This biocompatible material is commonly used in absorbable stitches and is considered very safe. It is actually a synthetic form of lactic acid, which your body produces.
The goal of this treatment is to stimulate the production of collagen, the key ingredient to healthy and youthful-looking skin. Sculptra® considers itself a “bio-activator” and is injected so that your body will start replacing lost volume naturally. This is highly-effective for reversing facial aging and filling in fine lines and wrinkles. The poly-L-lactic acid is eventually absorbed by your body, but by this time, your body should have created enough collagen on its own.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Sculptra®?
The best way to determine whether or not this is the right treatment for you is to come in and see us for a consultation. Sculptra® has proven itself to be effective for both men and women. The age range of people who seek out this treatment is very wide. If you have experienced facial sagging or wrinkling, you may be the ideal candidate for Sculptra®. This treatment is used most commonly on sunken cheeks. It can also be used to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
What to Expect with Sculptra® Treatments
Having these injections results in no real downtime. It is done on an outpatient basis and typically takes less than an hour. Many people choose to have this treatment done during a break from their other daily activities. Results develop gradually as your body works hard on creating new collagen. Full improvements can take some time.
