If your face is making you look older than you feel, you do not just have to just sit back and accept it. Instead, you may want to try Sculptra®, an FDA-approved injectable that can help replace lost collagen, resulting in a younger-looking you. This treatment is effective at treating many of the signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles.
How Does Sculptra® Work?
The active ingredient in this injectable is poly-L-lactic acid, a biodegradable and biocompatible synthetic material. Your body is able to naturally absorb this substance, which helps it to rebuild the all-important collagen.
Although many people notice some immediate results, it may take months to see the full effects of this treatment. The exact number of treatments you will need will depend on the size of the area being treated and some other factors. This can be determined at your personalized consultation.
The Sculptra® Treatment
After a consultation, where a treatment plan can be created and your medical history will be taken, you may be ready for your first Sculptra® treatment. During the treatment session, the solution is skillfully injected into the treatment area. There is no real downtime associated with this treatment. You will be able to resume most all of your normal activities immediately after your appointment.
What are the Benefits?
There are many options on the market for helping with the signs of aging on the face. You may want to choose Sculptra® over the other ones due to the following reasons:
- Unlike most dermal fillers, this one stimulates your body to produce more of its own, natural collagen.
- No special preparation or pre-testing is needed before having this done.
- It can be performed in-office and results in very little, if any, downtime.
- Results can last up to two years.
