What Is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® Aesthetic is a long-lasting collagen stimulator that helps your skin rebuild itself. Your skin is supported by the presence of collagen in the deep dermis. As you get older, your body may start producing less collagen, resulting in the appearance of wrinkles and folds. Stimulators like Sculptra® help restore this production, allowing the natural repair and restoration of your skin.
Sculptra® is not a filler, so it may not have an immediate visual effect. Because it's an injection, there may be slight swelling immediately after the procedure, but this should fade over a day or two. Your skin will then start to heal itself over a period of months. Expect to see noticeable results as your skin gets tighter, softer, and healthier. The smoothness created by Sculptra® is natural, and the results can last for more than two years.
How Sculptra® Works
Sculptra® is a gel that contains poly-L-lactic acid. Once injected into the skin, this gel spreads out and is slowly absorbed. The presence of poly-L-lactic acid encourages the production of collagen. As its support structures are restored, the skin begins to look smoother, and the wrinkles start to disappear.
Sculptra® Aesthetic requires a healing process and multiple treatments across an average of three appointments. Your specialist will monitor your skin's progress to decide whether additional injections are needed; some people only need two, while others can benefit from four or more. Attending your additional appointments is important to make sure your treatment takes proper effect. The treatment period typically lasts several months, while the results can last for years at a time.
What Can Sculptra® Treat?
Sculptra® Aesthetic provides subtle, natural, and long-lasting results. This treatment is most frequently used to correct deep nasolabial folds, which are also known as smile lines. However, Sculptra® can also be used on other facial wrinkles that can benefit from the cross-hatch injection technique. Sculptra® is frequently used on the neck and jawline, two areas that suffer greatly from the collapse caused by a lack of collagen production.
Sculptra® is a good choice when you want to appear more youthful and less exhausted, but you also have time to wait for natural-looking effects. Unlike fillers, which increase facial volume immediately but fade after a short time, Sculptra® will cause natural restructuring that can last for years.
