Rejuvenate Your Skin Naturally With Sculptra

Skin RejuvenationThe Filler Revolution

Dermal fillers are among the most exciting in-office cosmetic treatments when it comes to skin rejuvenation and Sculptra is an injectable filler that stands out amongst the crowd. It used to be that if you wanted youthful skin, you’d need to go see a plastic surgeon and go under the knife. But that is no longer the case. Dermal fillers can replace lost volume, refine facial contours and plump up sagging skin with no downtime and minimal side effects. With so many filler options to choose from, it can be very confusing deciphering the differences between all of the different fillers offered today. Here’s what makes Sculptra stand out amongst the crowd.

How Sculptra is Different Than Other Dermal Fillers

While many injectable fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, use a substance called hyaluronic acid, which is naturally occurring in the body, to plump up the skin, Sculptra’s mechanism is a little bit different. Sculptra consists of something called poly-L-lactic acid, which works to replace lost collagen. While other fillers do a great job at filling lines and wrinkles, Sculptra actually rejuvenates collagen growth, leading to a longer-lasting youthful look. Other injectables last up to one year, while Sculptra can last up to two years. Some patients who want instant gratification will lean towards other fillers, as Sculptra is a gradual pay-off and takes up to three treatments to complete the full effect. But those who have received Sculptra will confirm it’s worth the wait. Sculptra leaves an amazing volumized and lifted effect to the soft tissue areas in the face, the hollowed out temple area, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. Sculptra also perfect facial contours in a very natural looking way. Some fillers, when overdone especially, can leave a very unnatural look to the face. Just take a peek at any celebrity magazine and it’s easy to pick out who’s had one too many injectable filler. That will never happen with Sculptra, which makes you appear refreshed and younger, but in a very subtle and natural way.

Sculptra Works in Surprising Areas

When you think of dermal fillers, they are most commonly associated with filling and plumping up areas on the face. But Sculptra also does an incredible job of making the hands and chest area appear younger and rejuvenated. Sculptra replaces lost volume in the hands and also helps plump up skin so veins are not so obvious. As we age, our chest area begins to show the signs of sun damage and loss of collagen by exhibiting those unattractive lines and depressions. Sculptra, when injected into the chest area, leaves the skin looking smooth and beautiful. Hello strapless dresses again!

The Sculptra Experience

If you are considering Sculptra for your anti-aging treatment, we recommend booking a consultation and discussing your aesthetic goals. As a way to give your skin total rejuvenation and a complete makeover, many patients combine their Sculptra treatments with IPL Photofacials, Botox and Fraxel treatments. When performed in conjunction, all of these minimally-invasive treatments will leave you with a naturally refreshed and rejuvenated look.
