When considering dermal fillers, there are many different types on the market. Each dermal filler has its own benefits and can reduce the signs of aging. Not only does Sculptra reduce signs of aging in the face, but it also builds up the facial structure beneath the skin. At Rejuvenate Med Spa, we offer reliable Sculptra treatments. If you would like to know more about how Sculptra can treat your skin concerns, give us a call or schedule an appointment on our website. If you have any questions or doubts about this treatment, here is everything you need to know about Sculptra treatments and how they can benefit your skin.
What are Sculptra Injections?
Sculptra is the world’s first biocompatible dermal filler designed for the treatment of deep facial wrinkles and folds. Sculptra is also used to restore lost volume in particular areas on the face and improve the appearance of hollow facial contours. It is often used to correct natural volume loss caused by aging. This occurs as your skin loses elasticity and its ability to produce new collagen.
This dermal filler doesn’t only treat the surface of the skin but also targets the facial structure underneath the skin with a synthetic version of the body’s own collagen. Sculptra is a non-animal-derived dermal filler, lowering the risk of allergic reactions. If you are looking for a non-surgical injectable to treat your facial wrinkles and folds such as nasolabial folds, Sculptra is your solution. Sculptra treatments are done in a medical spa and administered by a qualified medical practitioner. Because of this, Sculptra injections come with low risk and are highly effective.
How Does Sculptra work?
When Sculptra is administered, small amounts of poly-L-lactic acid are injected into the dermis, which stimulates collagen production. Collagen helps restore volume in your face that has been lost over time due to aging, weight loss, or injury. Sculptra restores lost tissue and helps to give your face a smooth appearance. It can treat moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles.
Since Sculptra is made from a biocompatible material called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), it promotes the production of collagen in your body to help repair your skin. This treatment works gradually, causing a slow improvement in your skin as it replaces lost facial volume and increases elasticity and firmness.
Why Is Sculptra Different from Other Fillers?
Sculptra offers many of the same benefits that other dermal fillers on the market offer. However, Sculptra differs in the way it works. While many fillers just treat the surface of the skin, Sculptra is injected into the deep layers of skin to stimulate your own natural collagen production. The results of this treatment give your skin a natural appearance without showing signs of the treatment. Many patients prefer the gradual change in their faces.
What Are the Benefits of Sculptra?
Sculptra is a unique dermal filler with many properties to take advantage of. In 1998, Sculptra was FDA-approved for the treatment of facial wrinkles and folds, adding volume to cheeks and lips, and correcting other age-related skin concerns such as marionette lines and nasolabial folds.
Sculptra can improve the appearance of the contours and structure of your face and provide a volume boost.
If your skin has lost its elasticity, your face may have a sagging appearance. Sculptra helps rebuild underlying muscle structure to give your facial area a smooth look and feel.
Scars left by acne or chickenpox on the lower sort of your face can be treated with Sculptra too.
Sculptra will give you long-lasting and natural-looking results while targeting not only the surface of your skin but also reaching the deeper wrinkles and folds that other dermal fillers can’t.
These results will gradually increase within six months of your first treatment. You can benefit from these results for up to two years.
What Parts of the Face Does Sculptra Treat?
Sculptra can be used to treat multiple areas on the face. It can correct the hollows of your temples, add volume to your cheeks, decrease marionette lines, and remove deep nasolabial folds. Sculptra treatments have also shown significant results in other areas, such as the eyes, lips, and nose.
How many Sculptra Sessions Do You Need?
Depending on what your desired outcome may be, as well as the particulars of your skin, you can receive three to four Sculptra treatments to achieve these goals. It is always best to ask us how many Sculptra sessions you need during the consultation.
Am I a Good Candidate for Sculptra?
If you are looking to gain smoother skin around the nose or chin area, Sculptra is suitable for you. If you would like to add volume to specific areas of your face where the natural process of aging and other factors have caused the volume to diminish, you are an ideal candidate for Sculptra. We will be with you every step of the way to ensure you are successful with your Sculptra treatment.
What to Expect After Treatment
After your Sculptra treatment, you will be able to continue with your day because Sculptra requires no downtime. However, we recommend avoiding strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours after your treatment.
