When deep folds and wrinkles start appearing on your face, you may look and feel older than your years. Reversing the signs of aging doesn’t have to require surgery. In fact, Sculptra® Aesthetic requires not a single incision, but offers amazing results.
How skin ages
As more birthdays pass you by, your body’s production of collagen and elastin begins to slow down. Because these proteins are the essential building blocks of healthy, vibrant skin, this loss causes wrinkles and skin sagging, and your face can start looking older than your years.
Environmental factors also play into the overall health of your skin, as sun damage and an unhealthy diet may age you prematurely.
For many people who want to enhance their skin, the thought of painful surgery or costly procedures deters them from moving forward with treatment.
However, the revolutionary Sculptra Aesthetic injectable can change all that.
The inner workings of Sculptra Aesthetic
Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable treatment designed to replace collagen you lose with age. The injection contains poly-L-lactic acid that works in the deep layers of your skin to add volume and trigger your body’s ability to naturally produce collagen.
With a custom treatment plan designed by one of our experts at Bopp Dermatology & Facial Plastic Surgery, you can gradually restore necessary collagen and improve the fullness and health of your skin. Sculptra Aesthetic microparticles continue to be absorbed by your skin long after treatment, eliminating lines and wrinkles that age you.
Sculptra Aesthetic beats other methods
You may have tried other methods for improving collagen, such as creams or dietary supplements. The fact of the matter is that these options aren’t as effective as the Sculptra Aesthetic injections.
Creams and lotions that claim to work through absorption aren’t very useful because the molecules of collagen are much too big to go through your dermal layers. Supplements you add to your diet are likely broken down in your digestive tract, reducing the likelihood they are being used by your skin.
With Sculptra Aesthetic, you know the treatment area is receiving the substance it needs to help the body produce more collagen. As the injections go deep down into your skin, you have the assurance they aren’t being washed away like a lotion or eliminated as waste in your digestive system.
No downtime, few side effects
Sculptra Aesthetic injectables are safe and effective at enhancing the naturally contours of your skin by increasing collagen volume in the deepest layers. Following your injections, you can expect to return to your usual activities without time for recovery.
After your treatments with Sculptra Aesthetic, you may experience some redness and swelling at the injection sites that resolve without further care. In some cases, small bumps may form in the treatment area, but they go away over time without causing complications.
Enjoy long-lasting results
Based on your customized treatment plan, usually a series of three injection appointments over several months, you can expect to see optimal results with increased facial volume and a significant decrease in wrinkles and creases in the treatment area.
One of the biggest benefits of Sculptra Aesthetic injections is the long-lasting effects it offers. Once you complete your full course of treatment, you can enjoy smoother, younger-looking skin for up to 2 years.
