Have You Heard of Sculptra?

SculptraAre you searching for the perfect aesthetic cosmetic treatment for your shallow to deep facial folds and wrinkles? Sculptra may be just the ticket. It is an FDA-approved injectable that helps to gradually replace your skin’s lost collagen, and its results can last more than two years. Continue reading to learn more about this amazing treatment:

Sculptra contains a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, a bio-compatible, bio-degradable material that is naturally absorbed by the body to help rebuild lost collagen.
Sculptra is an injectable, but not all injectables are the same. Each is formulated differently, each targets different areas of the face and each produces unique results.

  • Dermal Fillers come in liquid or gel form. They reduce fine lines by pushing the dermis space up beneath wrinkles and creases. Results appear immediately and can last up to several months.
  • Toxins, like Botox, minimize fine lines by temporarily paralyzing and weakening muscles, typically in the forehead and near the eyes. Results appear within a few days and can last up to several months.
  • Collagen Creams claim to deliver absorbable collagen. But collagen molecules are too large to penetrate the skin. Most collagen creams include vitamins and do hold moisture, which makes them suitable moisturizers that can briefly improve the skin’s appearance.
  • Collagen Stimulators, such as Sculptra, diminish facial wrinkles by helping to restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin. Results appear gradually over multiple injections – typically three injections spaced three months apart.

As collagen stimulator, Sculptra is unique because it works deep within the dermis, rather than topically. As the Sculptra micro-particles are absorbed, they create fullness and help stimulate collagen production. Consequently, the rebuilt collagen strands begin to gradually restore your facial structure and volume.

If you are interested in Sculptra or any of the other aesthetic treatments we offer, we invite you to give us a call to schedule an appointment. At that time, we will assess your skin, discuss your concerns and recommend the procedures we think would be best suited to you. Fall is the perfect time…call, today: (855) 978-5775.
