The smoothest river rocks are not refined overnight just like the most significant changes in our bodies are not noticed as they are happening.
Unlike the elements and objects of nature that have no say in the way they are shaped and formed, you play an active role in the results you want to see in yourself.
Dermal fillers can be your secret tool for subtle change. Many fillers plump up the underlying skin. The injectable, Sculptra®, not only plumps the underlying skin, but works over time to gradually and subtly correct facial wrinkles.
Thanks to it’s subtle way of change, Sculptra® facial injectables provide results that are long-lasting (up to two years or more) and natural-looking.
In just a series of a few injections over the course of a few months, you can significantly reduce worry and frown lines, as well as the creases between the nose and the outer mouth.
A consultation with a facial plastic surgeon who is experienced with the Sculptra® Aesthetic process can help you discover if Sculptra® is the perfect treatment for the enhancements you want.
Sculptra® is ideal for those who have noticed a loss of volume, or plumpness in their face. You may describe your face as looking more thin, wan, tired, or even worried. Sculptra® adds youthful volume and plumpness underneath deflated skin, restoring a more youthful look.
Once your collagen stores have been replaced, the deep creases and wrinkles that appear around your nose, and between your nose and your outer mouth (called the nasolabial and melolabial folds), will be diminished and may disappear entirely depending on their severity.
By plumping the deeper tissues underneath the skin and inside age-related creases and wrinkles, hollow cheeks are gracefully filled out.
Keeping an awakened and refreshed appearance can be difficult to maintain when cheekbones become more prominent and skin becomes thinner. Your Sculptra® treatments will soften this area.
The bones around your temples, as well as your chin, are susceptible to the same type of angular hollowing that occurs around the cheekbones. Sculptra® will subtly and gently fill these areas as well.
This non-invasive cosmetic procedure is done quickly and with minimal discomfort.
Once your final injection has been done, your sensational results can last up to two years or more. You can watch an example of this transformation as it unfolds for 41-year old model, Franca. In her video you can see the process in action as she goes through her three Sculptra® Aesthetic injections as well as the amazing results that remain after a full two years.
Sculptra® is only used in the areas around the jawbone, including the temples and cheeks, as well as the areas around your nose and mouth. It is not used to fill wrinkles around the forehead, eyes or eyelids. If these areas are of concern to you, use your consultation with a facial plastic surgeon to discuss other dermal fillers or cosmetic surgery procedures that can help to enhance those areas.
The key to Sculptra’s success is a simple synthetic polymer, called poly-l-lactic acid (PLLA), which replaces natural collagen stores that are depleted as we age.
Collagen is fundamental to skin structure and elasticity but its production slows down as we age. The combination of reduced collagen production and gravity results in wrinkles and creases in sagging skin.
Injections of PLLA replace depleted collagen stores, restoring the skin’s structure and reducing the appearance of hollows, wrinkles and creases. Sculptra® is FDA approved and has been used safely as an anti-aging cosmetic procedure for more than 15 years.
During your first session, the doctor will inject Sculptra® deep within the skin layers (called the dermis). There may be a bit of tenderness when injection sites are touched but any tenderness or slight swelling will recede within a matter of days.
Most patients don’t notice any difference after the first injection. This is completely normal.
For the next few weeks, the PLLA goes to work, filling in the gaps as it replaces your lost collagen stores.
With each continuous injection, which occur two to three more times over the course of a few months, this amazing collagen restoration will continue until your skin looks years and years younger.
After the last injection is complete, most patients enjoy the benefits of the collagen replacement for two years or more.
