WHY IS SCULPTRA SPECIAL?
As the skin gets more mature, it starts to look unhealthy, dull and tired. Sculptra is a dermal filler that restores the natural freshness of the face and works against the signs of aging.
The Sculptra treatment involves using fine needles to inject a unique solution in sub-dermal skin areas. Sculptra injectable solution consists of a special formula – microspheres created from poly-L-lactic acid. This is the main active ingredient of this special solution and it triggers the production of elastin and collagen deep in the skin. When Sculptra is injected into the skin these microspheres are absorbed and processed by the body and the final result is rejuvenated and youthful-looking facial skin.
WHAT IS POLY-L-LACTIC ACID?
This main ingredient of Sculptra dermal filler is responsible for plumping the sub-dermal and dermal layers of the skin. It provides volume, fills in wrinkles and fine lines and rejuvenates the face. When injected it immediately rejuvenates the face. This powerful chemical compound is used in many beauty products including anti-aging facial creams.
It has been scientifically proven that Poly-L-lactic acid boosts the production of elastin and collagen – very important proteins that keep the skin firm and structurally consistent. However, when the skin starts to get mature these proteins decrease and aging signs appear on the face. This potent component fights against the signs of aging at its very core.
WHAT CAN SCULPTRA TREATMENT ADDRESS?
Sculptra is designed to target skin concerns that are related to aging. It is versatile and can address different skin issues connected to volume loss and aging. The treatment stimulates the production of collagen and creates smoother, firmer and plumper skin. It can be injected in the middle of the face, or in the area from the cheekbones to the chin. Sculptra can treat the following skin issues:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Marionette lines
- Lines around the mouth/smile lines
- Nasolabial lines
- Wrinkles on the chin
- Hollow cheeks and temples
- Wrinkles on the décolletage
- Laxity of the skin
- Dry skin
- Uneven tone and texture of the skin
Sculptra can also improve facial symmetry, facial contours and acne scars.
The facial areas where the Sculptra dermal filler is injected are cheeks, around the eyes, chin, jawline and around the mouth and nose.
Sculptra treatment is brilliant in addressing these facial areas and skin issues and can be also called a liquid facelift. It provides amazing results without surgery or downtime.
THE BENEFITS OF SCULPTRA TREATMENT
This treatment is so versatile and can do so much for the skin. The results can be visible for two years which makes this dermal filler one of the longest-lasting ones.
It stimulates collagen and elastin production and prepares the skin for future aging factors. Natural collagen is much more effective in reducing the signs of aging than any other collagen facial cream. The collagen in the body continues to build up even after the whole poly-L-lactic acid has been absorbed and processed by the body. Some patients respond to this treatment better than others and enjoy the benefits even longer than 2 years.
The Sculptra treatment goes one step further regarding aesthetic enhancements. It softens the facial contours – it provides more volume to facial features. When injected along the lines of the bones in the face and in the area where the hollowness is most prominent, it softens the lines and provides a more youthful appearance. Sculptra treatment is an excellent solution for improving skin laxity and making thin skin firmer and thicker.
The treatment provides gradual results. It requires a bit more time to produce the results because the body needs sometime to metabolize the poly-L-lactic acid and to start with collagen production. But when the results start to be noticeable the patients enjoy their rejuvenated and naturally enhanced faces for a long time.
Another benefit of Sculptra treatment is that it can be combined with other aesthetic procedures. It can go along with Botox, chemical peels or microdermabrasion. The patient can discuss with the dermatologist about combining treatments in order to get all his/her aesthetic goals achieved.
Sculptra treatment will plump the facial appearance. Lucia’s patients are more than satisfied with the results of the treatment and feel more confident about their rejuvenated and restored beauty.
THE RESULTS OF THE SCULPTRA TREATMENT
Sculptra treatment is different than other injectables because it boosts collagen production in the period of 3 to 4months. Every patient is different and some notice the first results after the initial session. However, usually the patient can notice that his/her skin is becoming firmer and plumper after the first month post-treatment. The effects of the Sculptra treatment continue to show as the patient’s body increases collagen build-up.
The best results of Sculptra treatment are achieved with 3 treatments on average, spaced one month apart.
The patient can keep the new, refreshed appearance with additional touch-up treatments two years after achieving the desired goals.
After the final treatment session, the results can last for 2 years or even a bit longer.
