If you’re looking for the perfect aesthetic treatment to address the visible signs of facial aging – those fine lines and shallow to deep facial folds and wrinkles, look no further. Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that helps to gradually replace your skin’s lost collagen – one of the an underlying causes of facial aging. Sculptra’s amazing results can last for more than two years.
Have we piqued your interest? Good! Here’s what Sculptra is all about:
Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic, biocompatible, biodegradable substance that is gradually and naturally absorbed by your body to help rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments.
Sculptra is an injectable, however not all injectables are the same. Each is formulated differently, each is designed to target different areas of the face, and each produces unique results.
- Toxins, such as Botox, minimize fine lines by temporarily weakening muscles, typically in the forehead and near the eyes. Results appear within a few days and can last up to a few months.
- Injectable fillers are either liquids or gels that reduce fine lines by pushing the dermis space up beneath wrinkles and creases. Results appear immediately and can last up to several months.
- Collagen creams claim to deliver absorbable collagen. But the collagen molecules in creams are too large to penetrate the skin. Most collagen creams include vitamins which helps hold moisture in the skin. This makes them suitable moisturizers that can briefly improve the skin’s appearance.
- Collagen stimulators are used to diminish facial wrinkles by helping to restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin. Results appear gradually over multiple injections (typically three injections space three months apart) and can last up to two years.
As collagen stimulator, Sculptra is different. It works deep within the dermis, rather than topically. As the Sculptra micro-particles are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production; the rebuilt collagen strands begin to gradually help restore your facial inner structure and volume, and create fullness to wrinkles and folds.
