What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is an anti-aging, soft, injectable filler that adds volume to the skin. It is FDA approved to help treat volume loss of the skin, which is a natural process of aging.
The main ingredient is poly-L-lactic acid, a biodegradable substance that can be naturally absorbed by the body. It can be used to fill in both deep and shallow wrinkles. Some of the wrinkles it helps to treat are smile lines, lines around the mouth and chin wrinkles. It can also be used to add volume and contour the face. It can be used by itself or in combination with other non-invasive procedures for an overall rejuvenation of the skin.
How it works
Over time, as we age, the skin on the face tends to lose elasticity. This causes the skin to sag. Sculptra helps to add volume to the skin, which reduces sagging. It also helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Instead of being a regular wrinkle filler, Sculptra stimulates tissue to produce more collagen. This, in turn, creates more volume.
- Short injection sessions
- Little to no downtime
- Long-lasting, natural looking results
- Stimulates your natural collagen production
Sculptra is injected into the treatment are using a fine needle. The body reacts by producing more collagen around this substance, which is a normal response.
Once the injection has been rendered the doctor will massage the treated area to make sure that there has been an even distribution of the solution.
Who is a candidate?
If you suffer from facial fat loss, have hollow areas on your face, deep folds, and wrinkles, then Sculptra might be right for you.
Most people see results over a period of 4 to 6 months. The results last for 2 years or longer; however, some patients prefer to have another treatment done to encourage collagen growth.
