What is Sculptra?

Sculptra refers to an injectable Poly-L lactic acid that is unique and bio stimulator that targets the cause of the signs of facial aging and volume loss. It works within the deep dermis layer to stimulate the patient’s own natural collagen formation. When the collagen is replaced, a foundation is provided that gradually restores the fullness by correcting facial hollowing. Sculptra restores volume, replaces collagen and refines the lines. The lasting results for Sculptra can last from 2 to 3 years. Within the dermis that is deep, the structure of the skin is reinforced as Sculptra Aesthetic. It helps in replacement of lost collagen. The reinforced collagen structure provides the foundation that can restore the deep facial look. Sculptra Aesthetic is very different since it gradually corrects the facial wrinkles. This can provide a more youthful appearance. The safety and effectiveness of Sculptra Aesthetic has been only evaluated in areas of nasolabial wrinkles and folds in clinical trials. The results may vary from one individual to the other and also the treatment sessions may also vary.

When using Sculptra for treatment, you must consider the following: Sculptra is not used in the lips, Sculptra Aesthetic is not recommended for use in per orbital area, and Sculptra Aesthetic has not been evaluated in other areas rather than nasolabial wrinkles and folds in clinics. Sculptra replaces lost volume in the face and it is normally injected deeper than the other injectable facial fillers. Like scafford, it helps in rebuilding the structure of the face. The effects of Sculptra are gradual and it stimulates the production of collagen in the body. Collagen refers to one of the substances in the skin that keep your skin look more youthful. One of the ways to combat the signs of aging is by replacing the collagen that is already lost during the aging process. The product of Sculptra can do the following: it can volumize the hollowed or the sunken areas on the face, it can improve the area of the middle cheek, it can gentry thicken the skin that has become thin due to aging, it can improve furrows and deep creases, it can volumize the cheeks by improving nasolabial folds from the mouth to the nose and finally it can volumize the cheeks by improving marionette lines from the mouth to the chin.

The Sculptra injections are not painful. The fine needle to be used for injection can include the anesthetic Lidocaine to numb the area that has been treated to ensure the comfort of the patient. In order to achieve the best results, majority of the people require at least 3 Sculptra treatments every 4 to 6 weeks. The patient should be ready to expect some minor bruise, redness, swelling itching and also tenderness. These symptoms disappear within one week. Small lumps may also be noticed in the injection sites. The results of Sculptra are not immediate since they appear gradually over the months after the injections. This allows the changes to be less noticeable.
