Collagen is quite the wonder protein. Aside from serving a vital role for many parts of our body, it’s also one of the major building blocks of our skin. Unfortunately, as we age, natural collagen production slows down. The result is a loss of elasticity and volume that leads to less-than-sexy sagging skin as well the development of facial lines and wrinkles.
But fear not, fellow collagen-craving comrades – Sculptra® Aesthetic is here to save the day! This FDA-approved injectable was designed to stimulate your body’s natural collagen production to ultimately help you regain the firmer, more youthful look you long for.
How Does Sculptra Work?
Sculptra is made with a biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid. When strategically injected in the desired treatment area, it’s naturally and gradually absorbed by the body to help rebuild lost collagen. This is achieved through a series of treatments administered by a trained injector.
Who Should Consider Treatment With Sculptra?
Sculptra is for those who are in good health 20 years of age and older. So if facial lines and sagging skin are an unwanted part of your life and you’d love the chance to tackle the issue with an effective long-term solution, then Sculptra may be a great choice for you. During your consultation, our staff will explain the treatment in detail and answer any questions you may have.
What Should I Expect During My Treatment With Sculptra?
Sculptra is administered through a series of injections, typically over the course of about three months. Each treatment only takes a few minutes. There is a brief waiting period after your injections to make sure no adverse reactions are experienced. After that, you’re free to go on about your day.
Are There Any Side Effects With Sculptra Treatment?
In clinical trials, the most common side effects reported have included the following:
- Pain at injection site
These are usually mild and resolve on their own in a matter of days. We’ll go over all potential side effects and more during your consultation.
What Results Can I Expect From My Sculptra Treatment?
As lost collagen is gradually replenished, you’ll start to notice those lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin begin to improve over time. This welcome effect will continue over the course of your treatments and beyond. Optimum results occur in a few months and last for up to two years. That’s right – two years!
