What Does Sculptra® Do to Your Face?

The aging process catches up with everyone at one point or another. As you age, your skin starts to lose collagen and elastin. It loses that youthful bounce and glow and develops wrinkles and fine lines. Sculptra® helps restore fullness to wrinkles and fine lines. It gives your face a softer youthful appearance.


What Is Sculptra?

Sculptra is an injectable filler that has been in use since 1999. In 2004, the FDA approved its use for treating facial wasting in people living with HIV. Facial wasting results in fat loss, sunken cheeks, indentations, and deep folds. Sculptra treats folds and wrinkles on the face. It will give you a youthful appearance.


It contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a collagen stimulator. The use of PLLA provides a natural result. It is safe, effective, and lasts for about two years. Take care if you are allergic to any of its ingredients or if you have a medical condition that might cause irregular scarring.


How Does It Work?

PLLA gradually and naturally stimulates collagen to restore fullness to fine lines and wrinkles. It will make your face look softer and more youthful. You may notice the results immediately or around a couple of months to see the full results.


The procedure starts with your doctor or physician looking at your medical history. They will want to know whether you have any allergies or medical conditions. They will map the injection sites on your skin and apply a topical anesthetic. They will administer multiple injections on these sites. After, you can get back to your daily activities without delay.


The Results

Sculptra will generally make your face look youthful. However, there are other advantages of using Sculptra. They include:


Natural Boosting of Collagen

Again, PLLA coaxes your body to increase collagen production. When collagen production increases, your skin becomes firm. It also acquires more volume and fullness.


Restores Youthful Appearance

Sculptra goes directly into the inner, deeper layers beneath the skin surface. Here it reinforces your facial skin structure. Over time, you begin to look fresh, younger, and more beautiful.


Improves Skin Texture

The stimulation of collagen deep within your dermis improves your skin texture. It is natural and provides volume and plumping effects. In addition to the smooth skin texture, your skin will glow.


Lasts for Some Time

Other fillers may provide immediate results. With Sculptra, you may see results in the first few weeks, but the long-lasting effects take a few months. With other fillers, you will need injections every three to six months. Sculptra requires three sessions four to six weeks apart.


Due to the natural collagen production, you will benefit from progressive results. These results will continue for up to two years, and they will not shock anyone because they look natural.
