Why use Sculptra?
Dermal fillers represent a large part of aesthetic medicine today. This is because products that smooth lines and wrinkles have been proven safe, because they work, and because they are much more convenient than plastic surgery. We proudly offer a variety of dermal filler treatments in our Houston practice. One, in particular, deserves special attention. Here, we want to discuss why Sculptra may be the right filler for you.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable product that is administered just like standard dermal fillers. This product, though, is intended to achieve both immediate and gradual rejuvenating effects. The way that Sculptra does this is through the action of Poly-L-lactic acid fluid. This is the same synthetic material that has been used for many years to make soft tissue implants and dissolvable sutures. It has been used for wrinkle-reduction since gaining FDA approval in 2009. Sculptra is inserted deeper beneath the skin’s surface, in the dermis where collagen diminishes with age. When we introduce the product into tissue, it essentially rebuilds the foundation that makes skin plump and smooth.
What Sculptra Has to Offer
It isn’t enough to choose any cosmetic treatment based on price or convenience alone. Some of the benefits achieved with Sculptra include:
- Sculptra goes to the source. Facial aging occurs deep beneath the surface, where collagen strands provide the structure for a youthful face shape. This product doesn’t just fill in volume, it helps the body restore the scaffolding that holds tissue in place for longer periods of time.
- Sculptra lasts many months. On average, a conventional dermal filler needs to be reintroduced to tissue every 3 to 18 months. Sculptra, by promoting an influx of collagen and supporting natural biological processes, lasts up to 2 years.
- Skin looks smoother. This doesn’t just relate to smoothing out wrinkles. According to studies, the collagen remodeling that occurs after Sculptra treatment actually softens the texture of the skin.
- Results look natural – because they are! Sculptra doesn’t relax muscles and it doesn’t plump the skin with water; it rebuilds the foundation that lies beneath youthful looking tissue. This action, and the gradual way in which results appear, makes Sculptra the go-to product for people who want the most organic effects from their cosmetic treatment.
