When injected by a skilled practitioner, Sculptra reduces fine lines and wrinkles, lifts sagging skin, and enhances facial contours. Moreover, it stimulates collagen production for results that are natural-looking and long-lasting.
Unlike many fillers, Sculptra results are gradual and build up over weeks and months. Many patients choose to receive annual or bi-annual “touch-up” treatments to maintain their desired facial shape and youthful volume.
Sculptra is a Non-Surgical Facial Contouring Treatment
As our skin ages, we lose collagen, which contributes to fine lines and wrinkles. While many other fillers use hyaluronic acid to temporarily smooth out these lines, Sculptra works differently by stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen. This leads to longer-lasting results. Sculptra is also able to restore lost facial volume and enhance contours.
This dermal filler is particularly effective for reducing the appearance of nasolabial folds, which run from the nose to the corners of the mouth. Sculptra can make these areas look plumper and fuller, which gives the face a more youthful appearance. In addition, it can also smooth out the forehead and temple areas to give these regions a more even tone. This makes makeup application more straightforward, and it may even help conceal any blemishes.
Sculptra can also reduce the appearance of stretch marks, which are scars in the skin caused by sudden stretching or overstretching. These can occur due to pregnancy, rapid growth or weight changes, and more. Sculptra works by injecting the dermal filler into depressed stretch marks, which stimulates new collagen formation for a more toned appearance.
The Sculptra treatment is a quick, painless procedure that can be performed during a regular office visit. After applying a topical numbing cream, the doctor will make several injections of the formula in the targeted area. The procedure can take 30 minutes to an hour depending on the patient’s needs. Afterward, patients will be able to return home and resume their normal activities without any significant downtime.
A typical Sculptra treatment plan involves three sessions spaced about a month apart. After the initial injections, some patients notice an immediate volumizing effect. However, most experience their best results after a few months, as the body slowly produces collagen. Surgical procedures are a more invasive alternative to Sculptra, but they require significant downtime and may produce less natural-looking results.
This treatment is ideal for those who want to reduce the signs of aging but are not yet ready for a facelift or other more invasive cosmetic procedures. Sculptra is an excellent choice for women and men who have sagging or hollow areas of the face that make them appear older, tired, or unhealthy.
