Sculptra is an FDA approved injection that helps gradually replace lost collagen - the body's most common protein used to form a framework to support cells and tissues - for results that can last for up to
to two years
Sculptra treats the cause of facial aging, not just the symptoms
Not all anti-aging treatments are created equal:
Collagen creams: Collagen creams do not fully penetrate the dermis, so most topical treatments are effective as moisturizers that improve the appearance of the skin for a short time.
Collagen supplements: When ingested, the digestive system breaks down collagen proteins and their effectiveness remains inconclusive.
Toxins: Toxins temporarily weaken muscles to reduce frown lines in the forehead. Results usually last two months
Filler: works immediately after injection to fill in lines and wrinkles
It works with slow and steady power. It consists of a synthetic biodegradable substance called lactic acid, which is absorbed by the body gradually and naturally and helps rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments.
The plastic surgeon injects the treatment at the appropriate skin level where the collagen strands support the structure of your skin.
Sculptra helps the body reproduce lost collagen. On average, three injection appointments are needed over a period of a few months.
The difference between dermal fillers and Sculptra?
Sculptra is a treatment that lasts much longer than dermal fillers on the market. To reduce wrinkles, Sculptra is a permanent filler, which means it works to build volume in the face while reducing wrinkles at the same time.
