Are you disappointed to see the inevitable signs of aging appear on your face? The most common reason your skin begins to become thinner, less elastic and wrinkled as you age is the loss of collagen. While many hyaluronic acid facial fillers can add volume under the skin, they do not repair the aging effects. Sculptra injections work differently than most other fillers, helping your skin repair and become naturally more youthful with increased collagen.
How Sculptra Injections Work
Sculptra injections are not a quick fix but offer a longer-lasting solution to aging skin. Sculptra uses poly-L-lactic acid that works to strengthen at a deeper level in the skin. This is unlike fillers that are injected close to the surface. Poly-L-lactic acid has been used for years in dissolving sutures and provides a safe element to rebuild the skin. It works as scaffolding in the skin to rebuild the strength and volume with increased collagen. It usually requires 2-3 sessions of Sculptra injections once a month to get the best results. Over the months following the injections, rejuvenation of the skin occurs, naturally turning back the hands of time for a younger appearance.
Other facial fillers can immediately diminish wrinkles, but the skin may not be improved. With Sculptra, the results appear slower, but the improvement to the skin is more drastic. The skin rejuvenates, becoming thicker and more supple with improved elasticity. Lines and wrinkles slowly fade, and the skin becomes firmer. Many of our patients like the natural progression of Sculptra and the long-lasting results of two or more years.
If you are interested in revitalizing your skin with a more natural rejuvenation process, Sculptra injections may be right for you. Contact the office of Joshua D.
