Make Sculptra Your Anti-Wrinkle Solution
Have you found yourself noticing more and more wrinkles appearing in your skin? Wrinkles can be a frustrating development, but with the help of Sculptra, you can help them vanish. Sculptra offers younger-looking healthy and beautiful skin by smoothing away wrinkles and age lines.
Sculptra is a long-lasting FDA-approved injectable skin treatment. Even though it has a synthetic origin, it has been developed in such a way that it is bio-compatible and bio-degradable.
How Does Sculptra Work?
Sculptra is different from other anti-wrinkle injectables in that it is not a true dermal filler but rather a collagen stimulator. Collagen stimulators create natural-looking results by encouraging the body to heal wrinkles using its own natural processes.
Collagen is a protein that gives the skin its much needed elasticity. Unfortunately, collagen is depleted due to natural aging process and other factors. After the age of 18, the body loses 1% of collagen every year. When collagen disappears, the skin loses volume and wrinkles begin to form.
Sculptra is made of poly-L-lactic acid. This substance stimulates the production of collagen in the skin tissues. Years of collagen loss are countered with the help of Sculptra treatments, and with more collagen, your skin’s form and structure are restored. As your skin gains new volume, wrinkles ease away.
Good Candidates for Sculptra
If you are concerned about the appearance of wrinkles, age lines, and folds, you should consider Sculptra. The treatment is specifically designed for moderate and harsh wrinkles and folds on the face, including marionette lines, the nasolabial folds, and parentheses lines.
It is proven to be medically safe, and patients who have already had Sculptra treatments swear by them. 80% of people who underwent a Sculptra treatment said that even after two years, they could feel the change in their skin and see a more youthful appearance.
The Treatment Process
Sculptra is administered through injections, so it is considered to be a minimally invasive procedure. The treatment begins with administration of either a topical anesthetic or a local anesthetic; this will help to numb the treatment areas to make you more comfortable.
The precise injections will then be administered, a process which typically takes around a half an hour or less to perform. You will come in for follow-up treatments; the number of treatment sessions you will need will be decided depending on your age and other factors.
Over the next two to six months, the collagen in your skin tissues will increase. You will see natural results appear as your wrinkles are reduced and your skin becomes smoother.
After your Sculptra treatment, follow our recommended aftercare regimen thoroughly for best results. Use a cold pack on the treated area within 24 hours to help bring down any swelling and bruising. Avoid sun exposure as much as possible during this time.
