Scluptra MD

Ageing is an inevitable part of life, but it is not something that most people want to experience, especially when it comes to our looks. The loss of collagen in our skin can cause wrinkles, fine lines, and an overall loss of volume, but there is a solution – Sculptra.

This injectable filler has grown dominant because it provides a more natural-looking, longer-lasting result than other fillers. Keep reading to learn about Sculptra treatments for both the face and body.

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra Aesthetic is formed of poly-L-lactic acid, similar to what is found naturally in the body. When injected into the skin, it stimulates natural collagen production. Thus it enhances the skin’s structure and increases volume.

Sculptra’s results can last up to two years, making it one of the longest-lasting injectable fillers on the market.

Benefits of Sculptra

Sculptra can restore volume and add face contour, particularly in the cheeks, temples and chin. It can also enhance the jawline and create a more youthful appearance.

Unlike other fillers, Sculptra injections require numerous treatments over several months, but the results are more gradual, natural-looking and long-lasting.

What Can You Expect From Sculptra?

Sculptra can also be used on the body, particularly in areas requiring a loss of volume, such as the buttocks, abdomen and thighs. Sculptra’s ability to stimulate collagen can help improve the texture and tone of the skin, particularly after significant weight loss or pregnancy.

Sculptra for body treatments also requires multiple injections and can take several months to achieve the desired result.

Is Sculptra Safe?

While Sculptra is safe for most people, schedule a consultation with a board-certified injector to ensure you are a proper candidate. Administer Sculptra with a certified professional trained to dispense the injections correctly.

The side effects of Sculptra are minimal but can include swelling, redness and minor bruising. Any side effects are typically mild and go away within a few days.

My Final Take

Sculptra is an excellent option for those looking to improve their facial or body appearance without surgery. Sculptra Aesthetic offers a more gradual, natural-looking result lasting up to two years, making it one of the most popular injectable fillers.

You can achieve a more youthful and vibrant appearance with Sculptra, but it is essential to have your treatment performed by a certified professional.

If you are interested in Sculptra treatments, schedule a consultation with your injector to determine if this treatment is an excellent option for your unique needs.
