Sculptra®–Subtle Improvement in Long-Lasting Volume
Enhancing or rejuvenating the face often involves improving the overall shape of the face or restoring volume & proportions lost from aging or weight loss.
Starting in our 20's we start losing fat and eventually bone from areas of the face at different rates, leading to jowling, sagging, deepening lines, thinning of the lips, downward displacement of the nose, lengthening of the distance between the nose and the upper lip and less forward projection of the chin and cheeks.
Could it be any more depressing? Why, yes--because some of the skin that's no longer held up and out by the facial frame ends up under the chin.
Sculptra®, which stimulates the skin to thicken and lift, is an excellent choice for those who would benefit from adding a few millimeters of thickening to an area rather than just filling in a line or wrinkle. It can restore the frame of the face much like putting in the foundation before you build the rest of a house.
Sculptra® can mimic the appearance of bone as well as fat, and it builds up slowly over several treatments done at least a month apart. The results essentially replace the frame of the facial canvas, and once the frame is achieved, much like the foundation of a house, you can fill any remaining surface wrinkles or depressions with dermal fillers.
The result is long lasting and looks and feels completely natural. It's an excellent choice to add volume to the cheeks, augment the chin, fill out hollow temples and even enhance the jaw line. Other body areas that can benefit from Sculptra® treatments include the backs of the hands and the décolletage.
How does Sculptra® work?
Unlike injectable fillers like Juvederm® or Radiesse®, which produce an immediate result when injected, Sculptra® works slowly by stimulating the buildup of the body's natural collagen to thicken the skin. The main ingredient of Sculptra® is poly-L-lactic acid, derived from fruit acids, and it has safely been used in surgery for more than 25 years.
The improvement from Sculptra® treatments is gradual, so others won’t notice a sudden difference, and the results can last 2 to 3 years. Two to five treatments, done at least a month apart, are usually required, depending on the amount of volumizing needed or desired. The area treated usually starts to begin filling out about six weeks after the first session and the results continue to improve over the following months. Usually one treatment done each year will maintain the improvement seen with Sculptra®.
When two vials of Sculptra® are used during one session, a discount applies. Since most people do best with several treatments, there's also a 15% discount on a package of 3 treatment sessions.
