Sculptra addresses an underlying cause of facial aging, not just symptoms. Common applications for Sculptra include treating fine to deep lines on the face caused by aging’s underlying cause. It’s a lovely and effective alternative to traditional fillers, which only address specific problem areas, by stimulating collagen production all over the face.
Not All Anti-Aging Treatments Are the Same:
Collagen creams: Collagen creams do not fully penetrate to the dermis, so most topical treatments are effective as moisturizers that briefly improve the skin’s appearance.
Collagen Supplements: When ingested, the digestive system breaks down collagen proteins and their effectiveness remains inconclusive.
Toxins: Toxins temporarily weaken muscles to minimize frown lines in the forehead. Results typically last a couple months.
Fillers: Works immediately upon injection to fill in lines, wrinkles and folds.
What happens during your Sculptra session?
When you come in for your Sculptra treatment, our cosmetic providers will examine your skin and discuss your goals. They’ll decide which area of your face to treat and map out the best treatment strategy for you. They’ll clean any pre-treatment dirt or bacteria from your face, then apply a numbing gel to make the injections easier. Finally, they’ll inject the appropriate dose of Sculptra into the targeted areas using ultrafine needles.
What are the Sculptra results like?
Sculptra may give you some immediate results, but your body will continue to produce collagen fibers for several weeks and months, giving you optimal results. You may need 3 injections spaced a month apart each to ensure optimal results. The final results may last for up to 24 months, following which you’ll need maintenance treatments.
