Gradual signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles can affect everyone, and can continue to gain more prominence in appearance as we age. Past a certain point, the use of anti-aging creams and even subtle injectables may not be a sufficient treatment for deeper and etched in lines. However, there is now an advanced solution available for the treatment of stubborn deeper lines with Sculptra® treatments.
What Is Sculptra?
Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable filler that smooths away aging concerns by gradually strengthening skin. What sets Sculptra above other filler options is that instead of plumping beneath the outermost layer of skin, this revolutionary solution penetrates into the deeper layers and integrates with the damaged skin tissue. This activates the natural stimulation of collagen production necessary for smoothing away more stubborn fine lines. Because it actively integrates with the deeper layer of skin, Sculptra subtly restores volume and provides results with a more-natural appearance.
What is the Procedure Like?
Sculptra procedures involve a non-invasive injection that may cause minimal-discomfort. However, a numbing gel can be applied if requested. Treatments are rather quick and can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour depending on the treatment area. Once Sculptra is injected, it initially begins to integrate with facial tissue, and overtime begins to gradually improve the appearance of etched-in lines. The subtle plumping of skin can naturally erase folds and wrinkles while restoring skin tissue. Because the procedure is non-invasive there is no necessary down-time or aftercare. However, for optimal results multiple treatments may be suggested.
