Sculptra is a product that is gaining popularity among those who want to restore volume to their facial skin. It is a synthetic bio-compatible liquid that can ease out and smooth wrinkles and fine lines around the lips, cheeks, eyes, neck, and other parts of the face. Its effects can last up to a couple of years, which is longer than most other injectables.

What Is Sculptra?

Sculptra is an injectable treatment made of poly-L-lactic acid. The solution has been in use for many years as part of dissolvable surgical sutures and many similar products. As mentioned, it is completely biocompatible, so the chances of it causing allergies are very low. It is ready to go off the shelf, meaning there is no need to prep for surgery. It is a simpler, less invasive, and easier to accomplish than a facelift or other surgical procedure.

How It Works

After Sculptra is injected into strategic spots of the face, it will get to work almost immediately. The visible results, however, will take a bit more time to fully manifest. Unlike other injectables, this procedure makes the body work for you rather than acting like a filler by itself. It is known as a collagen stimulator. It is absorbed directly by the areas where it is injected and makes those spots produce more collagen. The result is that the lower skin layers begin to repair themselves and the lines are smoothed away.

The Sculptra Injection Procedure

The procedure itself will take little time, and the steps are quite simple. The doctor will identify the spots on your face that will require the injections, mark them out, and then measure how much Sculptra will be needed for each site. The injections will then be administered. You might encounter some mild swelling and some discomfort. This can be treated by simple ice packs. The only thing to remember is that you should not be under UV light or in direct sunlight immediately after the procedure. Over the course of the next few weeks, you should begin to notice the difference in the appearance of your skin.

Why You Should Consider Sculptra

Sculptra is a convenient and effective alternative to surgery, and the procedure is quite simple and straightforward. The product used is very safe and will not cause any allergies. The downtime is minimal, so you can get back your normal day-to-day activities without having to spend too much time in recovery.

The solution that Sculptra presents for patients is based on the natural way the body functions, so the results of the procedure will also look very natural.
