Imagine living in a world where you could wake up each day better than the day before—well-rested, replenished, and younger-looking. Well, that world can be a reality thanks to Sculptra®, an injectable treatment we recently added to our service menu.
Sculptra is designed to rejuvenate the face, restoring volume and diminishing lines and wrinkles for younger-looking, supple skin. You may be thinking, “Don’t dermal fillers do the same thing?” They do, but this is where the similarities end.
Sculptra and dermal fillers are two vastly different treatments. Here are the highlights of Sculptra, and why this injectable may be ideal for you.
Sculptra is in a class of its own.
Dermal fillers are appropriately called fillers because they are made of a soft, smooth gel that literally fills in the skin to lift and smooth wrinkles. Sculptra is not a dermal filler, but an injectable treatment made of poly-L-lactic acid, a collagen stimulator. Sculptra works deep within your dermis to trigger new collagen production and help restore your skin’s volume and youthful structure over time.
Sculptra is gradual.
While dermal fillers afford immediate plumping action, Sculptra typically takes up to 4 months to reveal optimal results. Treatment usually involves 3 injections over a period of 3 to 4 months to reveal benefits that can last up to 2 years.
Sculptra is natural-looking.
Because Sculptra stimulates your body’s collagen production gradually, there’s no immediate plumping effect. This is a huge draw for many of our patients who want the most natural-looking rejuvenation possible.
