Today, it’s more convenient than ever to enjoy a youthful, firmer appearance with little to no downtime or side effects. Sculptra is in the class of dermal fillers that help diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. Sculptra treatments are quick and easy; you can be in and out of the office and on with the rest of your day in less than an hour. Are you interested in these treatments and want to learn more? If so, keep reading to learn about dermal fillers and if this is the right choice for you. 


What is it, and how does it work?


Sculptra is a dermal filler that works with your skin’s natural ability to regenerate collagen. This filler is created using poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible synthetic material. It is used to help naturally restore lost collagen around different areas on the face and works gradually over time. This gradual effect helps you look younger and more radiant without looking like you’ve had any obvious work done. The number of areas treated will depend upon the results you desire.


What are the benefits?


Sculptra is very natural looking. Because it works to replenish the lost collagen in your skin gradually, the effects take hold subtly over time.  The slower reveal allows for a softer look that will not give you the over filled look. There is also virtually no “down time,” which means you won’t have to worry about time off work or family obligations. Another benefit is that poly-L-lactic acid has been safe and effective for over thirty years. So you’ll enjoy long-lasting results without the need for invasive procedures.


Where is It Used?


Sculptra is best suited for addressing the fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, chin, and nose. It also works to restore fullness in the cheeks, chin, and temples. Lost volume in the face or hollow areas of the temples can make you appear older.  Sculptra can plump the areas of the cheeks and temples restoring the face by adding volume that looks natural.  If you have noticeable smile lines, wrinkles around the chin, or vertical lines between the mouth and chin, Sculptra may be right for you.


How long does it last?


Sculptra has a unique way of working with the body’s natural collagen production system to help you produce collagen over time.  It is a gradual process.  Unlike other injectables, once Sculptra is injected into the dermis, your body’s reaction is to naturally produce more collagen over several weeks. You may require up to three treatments over a three to four month period to build to the desired result but the effects can last up to two years.  The expert injectors at Bodywise Specialists can create a custom program to help you achieve your desired result and keep you looking beautiful.
