Here at Mountain State Cosmetic Surgery, we invite you to learn more about this celebrated filler.
What is Sculptra® Aesthetic?
Sculptra® Aesthetic is an FDA approved injectable that can correct wrinkles and fine lines. Using poly-L-lactic acid Sculptra® replaces collagen and proteins. Poly-L-lactic acid is a synthetic material that can be absorbed by the body over time; it’s also biodegradable. As time goes by, our bodies will produce less collagen, which is how wrinkles form. With a Sculptra® treatment plan, you’ll soon begin to see and feel the youthful effects on your skin. It is essentially a soft tissue filler, functioning to improve both deep and shallow lines.
What can I expect?
A small needle is inserted into the skin to inject Sculptra®; the dermal layer of the skin absorbs the poly-L-lactic acid. The treatment will work it’s magic beneath the surface, helping to fill in wrinkles. Your physician will plan out the injection sites and cleanse your skin. After the injections, the skin will be massaged to distribute the PLLA. In some cases, an anesthetic may be applied to block pain signals and ensure that the candidate feels no discomfort.
What are the benefits?
Due to the non-surgical nature of the procedure, candidates benefit from minimal recovery time afterward. The treatment works to boost the normal collagen growth of the skin, which means that the improvement appears very natural. The results of the injection can also help to enhance skin health and skin tone. Younger looking skin is achieved with results that are gradual and long-lasting. Anti-aging procedures can benefit the lifestyle of the individual by improving overall wellbeing. If you’re someone who has felt anxious about their increasing levels of wrinkles, Sculptra® Aesthetic can help to ease this kind of stress.
Is Sculptra® Aesthetic for me?
Sculptra® is for those who are searching for a wrinkle reduction treatment, which is also non-surgical. If you feel low self-esteem due to facial lines and wrinkles, Sculptra® Aesthetic could help you to boost your confidence. Sculptura is not suitable for those who are pregnant or nursing, and those who opt for the treatment should keep realistic expectations in mind. Generally, 2-3 treatments are needed before the gradual results begin to show. The treatments are spaced out over time and this can be discussed on consultation.
