More and more people are opting for non-surgical procedures to improve their facial appearance as they are quick, cost-effective and deliver some of the same results as the surgical alternative. One such instance is Sculptra® treatment.
How It Works
Sculptra® works by gradually stimulating the production of collagen, the basic component that keeps skin smooth, radiant and youthful-looking. As you advance in age, collagen production in your body decreases, and that’s when you begin to see lines and wrinkles, hence facial aging. As a dermal filler, Sculptra® stimulates collagen, which helps add or restore facial volume and the look of fullness. It helps to correct shallow and deep wrinkles and folds on the skin to give you a more natural look over time.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Sculptra® treatments are best-suited for individuals who seek to address fine lines and wrinkles that may make them look older and restore fullness to their face gradually and subtly. Sculptra® is considered to be biologically inactive as it does not contain any bacterial, human, or animal components. It does not pose any risk of allergic reactions, but is recommended for individuals with healthy immune systems. It is also important for clients to have reasonable expectations regarding the treatment and the results.
Sculptra® treatments typically require multiple sessions over a period of multiple months to see complete results because, as a collagen stimulator, it takes time to produce volume. The injection will give a more gradual change to the face over a series of treatments; hence; individuals see results over a longer period as opposed to other fast facial fillers.
Individuals who are looking to get instantaneous outcomes from their treatment would not be best-suited for these treatments. It takes time to see the full results. But one major benefit of Sculptra® is that it produces longer-lasting results, giving you a youthful look for longer.
You need to understand that the effects of Sculptra® are temporary and to sustain the young, radiant looks, you have to repeat treatment after a specified period. This treatment is the perfect alternative for you if you want subtle, gradual and beautifully natural outcomes for your facial features.
