While leading a busy life, along with enjoying outdoor activities or training, it might be challenging to find time in your schedule for aesthetic or cosmetic treatments. Even if they make a difference in fully achieving your aesthetic goals, it is hard to imagine adding another regimen to your life.
Although dermal fillers and injectable treatments have come a long way in providing long-lasting results and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines, the results are still temporary, and recurring maintenance treatments are needed to keep the same results.
Surgical procedures to address cosmetic and aesthetic conditions almost always shave long-lasting, if not permanent, results. However, most surgical procedures also have a recovery period that interrupts your schedule.
Using poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) contained within a sterile solution, Scultpra® is a dermal injectable that can help restore lost volume in the face and other areas by stimulating your body’s natural production of collagen.
While the PLLA in Sculptra® is a dermal filler that can reverse and improve the appearance of folds and sunken areas, it works slightly differently than most other fillers. It is still very useful in moderate to larger areas of the face but is best for more mild situations or those who prefer a more gradual and controlled change.
Rather than temporarily absorbing nearby water molecules or using a solution that is relatively quickly metabolized by your body, the collagen production stimulated and boosted by the PLLA in Sculptra® is what restores the lost volume caused by aging and other factors.
Not only does this lead to a more natural-looking enhancement and improvement to your face, but it also leads to much longer-lasting results as your body continues to produce collagen. In general, most patients are able to go at least 2 years between treatments, compared to a year with many other treatment options.
