What is Sculptra?
Whether you like it or not, we all age. As we grow older, we lose the collagen and the elasticity that makes our skin look young. Fortunately, in today’s world, there are various products and treatments that can help us maintain that youthful look that we all desire. Though the effects can often be short-lived, some of these products really give amazing results. Allow me to introduce to you, Sculptra. Sculptra is revolutionizing the way many people think about dermal fillers, it has the ability to help patients replace lost collagen which maintains that young-looking skin.
Sculptra is an injectable treatment that tightens the skin and gives you a healthy and youthful complexion. It is an injectable dermal filler that contains poly-L lactic acid that can stimulate collagen production to provide you with plump, smooth skin. Collagen is a natural substance created by cells called fibroblasts which rebuilds damaged skin and reduces skin laxity. As a non-invasive procedure, Sculptra is perfect for those who want to give their faces a fresh look without the stitches or risks associated with cosmetic surgery.
After several injection sessions, your skin will slowly be renewed as it produces collagen, and you will enjoy long-lasting youthful, and smooth skin. The treatment can lift the skin without surgery or downtime and provides some of the longest-lasting skin rejuvenation results. This powerful dermal filler works gradually to improve skin elasticity and increase skin’s natural volume. The treatment is safe, and skin rejuvenation has been performed in the US since the FDA approved it in 2004.
How Sculptra Tighten The Skin?
Sculptra works as a bio-activator and a collagen stimulator. By inducing collagen, a component of the skin that rebuilds and heals the skin while increasing its elasticity, you get smooth and firm skin. Low skin elasticity causes the skin to become saggy, wrinkled and folded. Injectable treatment smooths out the lines and adds volume that fills in wrinkles and hollow areas of the skin that have lost their volume and elasticity. Age and lifestyle factors can lead to a slackening of the skin and signs of aging if collagen production decreases. Your skin will have its youthful elasticity and smoothness after collagen production has been stimulated by the treatment.
Why Is Collagen So Important?
Collagen loss is a huge contributor when it comes to facial aging. It is one of the main structural proteins that give your skin firmness and smoothness. Though your skin does produce collagen on its own, the amount of collagen that it produces declines quite rapidly with age. Studies show that collagen loss begins around the age of 20, and the amount of collagen your skin produces drops by about 1.5% each year.
In case you’re wondering, you can also use topical products to increase your skin’s production of collagen, but these products rarely penetrate deep enough to bring about a significant effect in collagen production. Collagen is produced quite deep in the skin, in the dermal layer. Since Sculptra is injected directly into the skin’s dermal layer, the effect is much more noticeable.
What It Can Treat?
Sculptra can be used to reduce moderate and fine lines, reduce wrinkles, eliminate nasolabial folds, reduce the appearance of cellulite, fill in sunken cheeks, remove frown lines from the brow, reduce lines around the eyes, and mouth, eliminate marionette lines, and relieve general skin laxity.
Why Choose Sculptra?
Not everyone ages gracefully. Aging skin is one of the most dreaded signs of aging for any person looking to maintain a youthful appearance. So, are there ways to help reverse the appearance of aging skin? Say hi to Sculptra!
Sculptra is Unique:
It is unlike any other dermal filler on the market today. Other fillers are composed of Hyaluronic Acid, and they’re usually only used to treat one area that produces immediate results which only last for several months. Sculptra is completely different from these traditional fillers. It affects the foundation of the face, restoring the underlying structure of the skin.
The Results Develop Gradually and Look Very Natural:
Sculptra provides a naturally youthful finish to your wrinkled and loose skin rather than making it look like it’s been ‘made up’ through injections or plastic surgery. The procedure works by increasing your collagen production, which then results in your skin gaining a natural look.
The Results Last for a Long Period of Time:
Nobody likes to keep on going to a medical office for facial treatments every now and then. Innately, everyone desires a long-lasting effect after a procedure. Well, the results of Sculptra treatments last longer than many other forms of injections. You could maintain that radiant look longer than your peers with Sculptra. Patients who have multiple sessions of the treatment can maintain results for up to two years!
