Sculptra or Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved, non-invasive cosmetic treatment that stimulates the body to naturally produce new collagen lost due to skin aging. During this fifteen minute procedure, Sculptra is gently injected in varies problem areas of the face including cheeks, chin, temples and nasolabial fold. Once injected, it stimulates natural re-volumizaton of these areas, which in turn causes gradual skin tightening and volume correction.
Sculptra Aesthetic works to replace and re-build skin’s natural collagen and elastin lost with aging, weight loss and sun damage. The abundance of collage in the skin keeps it smooth and plump. Loss of collagen causes the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and sagging of the skin.
Sculptra works to correct volume loss by re-building collagen and restoring natural fullness of the face. The effect of Sculptra is gradual and achieved over the course of a few months. Patients usually describe the results as look fuller, tighter and firmer, without any facial distortion.
Men and women of all ages may be treated with Sculptra. The process works faster on younger patients as their ability to form collagen is optimal. Older patient get similar results thought it take them a little longer to see the full effect.
Patients love Sculptra because the results look natural and last up to two year. The longevity of this treatment depends on many factors including patient’s age, skin condition, and the number of Scuplpra treatments the person had.
It is actually highly recommended to combine Sculptra treatments with Botox and such Dermal Fillers as Restylane or Juvederm. Combining treatments further improved the longevity of the results and significantly improves patients’ satisfaction. Other popular treatment combinations are Sculptra and Skin Tightening, such as Ultherapy or Radio Frequency.
Sculptra treatments are not painful. A local anesthetic is used during the treatment and a topical numbing cream may also be applied prior to the procedure. Most patients feel comfortable going back to their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
A treatment of Sculptra requires three to four sessions on average. Sessions are performed about four to six weeks apart. Because Sculptra stimulates the body to produce its own collagen, results can last up to two years or more. Touch-up treatments may be needed to maintain the desired effect after that time.
