Time and age can cause your skin to develop lines and wrinkles, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with them for the rest of your life. If you’re looking for a longer-lasting solution for those wrinkles than makeup, a Sculptra treatment may be what you need.
If you feel that your real self is hidden beneath wrinkles that make you look and feel older, you’ll love what Sculptra has to offer. This FDA-approved dermal filler is an injectable treatment that gets to the root of the problem, giving you results that last up to two years.
Your body loses 1% of its collagen every year of your adult life, and by 50, you may lose as much as 30% of the collagen you had originally. Sculptra contains a proprietary formulation of poly-L-lactic acid, which stimulates your skin’s collagen production. This helps restore the suppleness your skin once had, smoothing out wrinkles and restoring structure and facial volume.
Unlike other injectables, Sculptra makes your body repair itself in order to get rid of those wrinkles. This means that the results are subtler and more natural instead of dramatic, meaning nobody will be wondering if you’ve had work done. Instead, they’ll just appreciate your youthful wrinkle-free looks.
Sculptra is a virtually painless and simple remedy for wrinkles, and it doesn’t take too much time to perform. Injection is a job that takes precision and care, so we will work on small areas at a time. You will need to come in for a few separate sessions for the entire course of treatment to be complete.
During treatment, Sculptra will be injected into the deep dermis of your skin, after which your skin will be gently massaged to help evenly distribute the product throughout the area being worked on. Some people might experience a little bruising or minor swelling afterwards, which will pass in a few days after each session.
Unlike surgery, which requires you to set aside time off from work, a Sculptra treatment is something you can easily schedule during your work week with no recovery time required.
A couple of days after being injected, the treatment begins to show early results. These may be too subtle to see, since the remedy works from the inside out, increasing internal collagen and elastin protein production.
With each subsequent session, you should start seeing more of a difference in the appearance of your skin as wrinkles start to fade away. After your final session, you should give it a few more weeks for the full extent of the results to be apparent.
