As you age, it is common to experience volume loss in the cheeks. This can result in a gaunt appearance that can make you look old and melancholy. Fortunately, Sculptra aims to help with this problem. This revolutionary filler can help you regain the volume you lost in your cheeks for a more youthful look.

Sculptra – a Popular Injectable Treatment

Sculptra is an injectable filler that can rejuvenate the face by restoring lost volume and replacing lost collagen. It can help provide a naturally youthful look that is long lasting and significant. Not only will it work to remove facial deficiencies, it will also boost your collagen production levels to ensure long-lasting improvements.

Sculptra is an FDA approved injectable that is composed of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which stimulates collagen growth and can help correct facial hollows, wrinkles, and folds. The active ingredient is a biocompatible biodegradable synthetic material that has been used for years.

For this reason, you can expect the results from Sculptra to look natural. It boosts your skin’s collagen-producing abilities, which helps to hold the skin together. Without adequate collagen, the skin can begin to collapse and give way to a older and unpleasant look.

The Benefits of Sculptra

Sculptra is a synthetic form of an acid that is present in the body naturally. When injected, the body absorbs the PLLA and gets to work on restoring the skin’s lost volume by producing more collagen.

Sculptra is minimally invasive, which means there is no surgery required if you want to use it. You won’t need to worry about anesthesia, surgical scars, or bleeding as a result of the treatment. Due to its non-invasive nature, there is no extensive recovery time with Sculptra either.

Combine this with its simple administering procedure and you have a really safe way to get rid of the early signs of aging from your face. There are also no adverse side effects associated with Sculptra treatments. You don’t need to worry about your body reacting poorly to the injected substance.

Once you are finished with a Sculptra session, you won’t need to use it again for at least two years. The actual results depend on your skin’s condition and the dosage recommended by your doctor. Its long-lasting results make it a cost effective way to rejuvenate your face for a long time.

Other Important Things to Know About Sculptra

The results provided by the Sculptra treatment begin to show slowly over a period of time. It is not the ideal treatment if you need instant improvements. The benefit you get is that the results look natural and it won’t look like you have had any cosmetic procedures performed. The end-result is subtle but significant.

Your initial treatment may consist of two or more sessions depending on your skin’s condition. These sessions are spread over time based on your doctor’s recommendations. You may experience a bit of redness after a session, but it will subside soon after.
