Sculptra does not just fill wrinkles, it gives your skin back its lost volume that happens with aging. It is this lost volume in the cheeks, lips, temples, under eyes, and mouth area that creates the hollow appearance that makes us look older.
How Does Sculptra Work?
This treatment is made of a synthetic polymer called poly L lactic acid, which the body naturally absorbs. This polymer has been long proven in its use in dissolvable sutures. It replaces lost volume, lifting the skin. New collagen grows around its microscopic spheres; that collagen remains even after the treatment leaves the body.
How Is Sculptra Better Than a Facelift?
Facelifts cut away excess folds of skin, but cannot restore volume. It is volume that restores the youthful look. This treatment can also make your face more symmetrical and lift drooping skin. It is used in hollow areas including cheeks, lips, temples, under eyes, and mouth and jaw area. It can even be used in butt lifts, an option that is becoming more popular because it is the only injectable filler that can safely and affordably create noticeable effects in the butt area. This treatment is not recommended for use in the lip area; lips and wrinkles should be treated with products like Juvederm and Restylane.
What Is the Sculptra Procedure Like?
For each treatment, you will receive a few injections to the area. This may cause bruising and/or swelling, which are temporary. There is no downtime. Another risk is that papules may appear under the skin that you can feel but usually cannot see; they fade away over a few weeks or months.
How Long Will the Effects Last With Sculptra?
Studies suggest that the effects of Sculptra can last up to or even more than two years after one treatment, although these effects may vary. Physicians at Glow Aesthetic Center in Encino note that clients may desire touch-ups every 18 to 24 months to keep that youthful look
