It’s a letdown when we lose collagen, but that’s what happens when our faces begin aging. The special protein provides structure, firmness and a foundation beneath our skin, but as we get older, our collagen levels diminish. That’s when you see wrinkles, sagging and volume loss start to appear. Think about it; by age 40, most of us have up to a 20 percent collagen depletion. You can fight back with Sculptra®, an injectable that’s unique from other dermal fillers. It helps you rebuild collagen gradually and restore more youthful facial contours. Sculptra® offers subtle aesthetic tweaking at its finest.
What is Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA)?
Sculptra® contains poly-L-lactic acid, which is considered a collagen stimulator. Most other fillers that contain hyaluronic acid can plump up the volume but do not go to the root of the issue.
PLLA is a synthetic substance that is injected under the skin rather than into the skin. It contains micro-crystals and sterile water. Sculptra® is not like thick gel fillers that immediately add volume, but it contains the volume-building tools that your body uses for long-lasting facial rejuvenation. PLLA has an excellent safety record.
No Surgery or Downtime
Sculptra® is a simple, speedy cosmetic treatment that takes just minutes to inject. Post-treatment, you can return to your normal day of activity. Minor side effects like redness may occur, but this is temporary.
The results are not instant. Sculptra® starts working with your body to naturally encourage and replace any collagen that’s been lost. It can restore volume and soften wrinkles and deep folds. Our professional can determine how many sessions you will need to achieve optimal results.
Steady Results, Long-Lasting
Clients rave about Sculptra® as an exquisite filler because it gradually delivers natural-looking effects. The injectable can last for quite a long time, especially when compared to other fillers.
If you’re concerned about facial aging and all of the annoying issues that go with it, you are not alone. Most of us want to appear ageless but not look artificial or overdone. That’s why Sculptra® is in a class of its own. It not only rejuvenates the face, but it addresses the cause of your wrinkles and lost volume.
