Correction of Dermal Filler depressions folds, wrinkles, and hollowness

Sculptra

The one thing that keeps skin looking youthful is collagen. Unfortunately you lose 1% of collagen per year after the age of 18 years of age. Sculptra works by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production processes to restore volume, in contrast to other fillers that instantly fill physical space under the skin. Therefore restores volume for a more youthful appearance. Sculptra is approved for aesthetic use nearly two decades ago, Sculptra is another Galderma brand that uses the power of poly-L-lactic acid. Most other dermal fillers are a one-and-done type of treatment, where you only need one treatment appointment at a time to produce your ideal results. This filler is different because your first treatment will actually include a round of three+ appointments in order to achieve optimal results over time. Your initial treatments will usually be spaced a few weeks apart so that we can assess your progress over a short period of time. Within 3-6 months of the treatments

Not All Anti-Aging Treatments Are the Same:

Collagen creams: Collagen creams do not fully penetrate to the dermis, so most topical treatments are effective as moisturizers that briefly improve the skin’s appearance.

Collagen Supplements: When ingested, the digestive system breaks down collagen proteins and their effectiveness remains inconclusive.

Toxins: Toxins temporarily weaken muscles to minimize frown lines in the forehead. Results typically last a couple months

Fillers: Works immediately upon injection to fill in lines, wrinkles and folds

How Does It Work?

Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) that is injected into the skin and helps restore the deep, and underlying structure of the skin to diminish facial wrinkles. As the Sculptra (PLLA) collagen subtly and gradually over time to the skin’s inner structure as the PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they may help stimulate production. This process rebuilds collagen strands and they begin to gradually help restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds over time.
