Loss of volume and suppleness, along with the development of deep lines, seems inevitable when it comes to the aging process. As we get older, we begin to lose collagen, a major building block in youthful, healthy skin. Many men and women feel there’s nothing that can be done about this inevitability. Fortunately, with today’s newest lines of dermal fillers and other cosmetic procedures, that’s simply not true at all. One of the most effective injectables for treating both loss of volume and the furrows that often come with it is Sculptra®.
Sculptra® is one of the most powerful dermal fillers on the market due to its ability to address deep folds and facial creases, along with those pesky smile lines. Sculptra® is an injectable, meaning it is delivered via skillful injection in order to fill in lines and plump up the volume of skin. The particular filler gel used in this treatment stimulates the production of collagen fibers, leading to enhanced volume over time. As the skin regains its lost fullness, wrinkles and lines start to diminish.
How It Works
During your first consultation, our practitioner will talk to you in order to develop a plan of treatment. The location of injections and number of treatments you’ll need depend upon your skin’s characteristics and the extent of issues like collagen loss and wrinkle development. The main ingredient in this gel filler is lactic acid, which is the chemical that is naturally created in our bodies after exercise. Full results will start to be seen over time as the gel starts to stimulate the production of collagen, thickening the skin and restoring lost volume.
If you’re looking for a minimally-invasive, convenient, simple treatment to return the fullness to your face and lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles, you may have found the option that is right for you in Sculptra®.
