What Is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® (poly-L-lactic acid) is a dermal injection where collagen stimulation is the difference. Sculptra® works by gradually boosting the natural production of collagen within the skin cells, which causes your skin to tighten, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and restoring contour and volume to the face. It is often considered the secret to youthful looking skin.
Who Can Benefit from Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is recommended for adults who are displaying signs of aging, such as volume loss and wrinkles developing in the face. Suitable candidates are in good general health and wish to improve overall shape of their face without undergoing plastic surgery. The goal is get closer to a more triangular shape of a youthful face.
Our recommendations are generally to treat with one vial of Sculptra per decade of life for initial treatment. This means a 40-year-old would most often start with 4 vials of Sculptra. During each session, one to two vials of Sculptra are injected. Initial sessions are performed 4 to 8 weeks apart. Touch-up sessions of one or two vials are done annually or every two years. After your Sculptra injection, for best results, it is a must that you massage the treated area in firm circular motions five minutes, five times daily for five days.
Why Choose Sculptra®?
Sculptra® differs from other traditional dermal fillers because it offers results that improve gradually, usually over 90 days. You may still look the same a few days after your treatment. The results rely on the boosted production of collagen that, over time, enhances natural skin contour and appearance.
How Does Sculptra® Work?
Sculptra® works by penetrating deep in the skin cells to stimulate the collagen receptors and boost their productions levels. Collagen is responsible for improving volume and elasticity in the skin. Improved collagen production means firmer skin and a naturally more youthful appearance.
