Sculptra is a collagen biostimulator that works to enhance your facial contouring. They’re a type of injectable treatment administered with a needle and syringe.
Sculptra is a great option for filling out hollowed cheeks and smoothing deep lines and folds at the sides of the nose and mouth.
Sculptra is formulated from poly-L-lactic acid. The filler consists of tiny microparticles suspended in a gel. Your body eventually absorbs and safely processes those microparticles.
One of the reasons why Sculptra is such a popular injectable treatment is how your body responds to the formulation. As your system slowly breaks down and absorbs the microparticles, new collagen production ramps up.
This effect means that even after the initial Sculptra injectable is gone, you retain the natural collagen your body created. This makes Sculptra a wonderful value, as the results can last between two to four years.
Compared with treatments that only affect the surface layers of your skin, Sculptra offers more dramatic and noticeable improvements. While nothing can match the effects of plastic surgery, Sculptra is an excellent way to achieve a more youthful and well-rested appearance without the risks and recovery time of surgical interventions.
It doesn’t take long for your doctor to place your Sculptra injections. You’ll see an immediate plumping effect in the days after your treatment, but the full results develop very gradually.
This means your friends and loved ones will notice that you look great, but you won’t have a drastic, overly “done” appearance. Within three to five months, you’ll see the full effects of the collagen remodeling.
Optimal results rely on having several Sculptra treatments spaced over three to four months. This allows your body to continue replenishing your collagen, creating a beautiful result lasting two years or longer.
Once you see the results, you’ll want to do all you can to extend and enhance them. Embracing a solid beauty routine using high-quality skin care products is a great place to begin. Treatments like chemical peels, laser resurfacing, or microneedling can also improve the look and feel of your skin.
