There are many different types of wrinkle treatments on the market. Each one offers unique benefits that are aimed at specific skin concerns. Sculptra® is a uniquely designed biostimulator that is aimed at reducing the signs of aging. While we can’t avoid the changes that age brings, we can use a treatment like Sculptra to reduce their appearance.
At Nunnally Dermatology in Baton Rouge, LA, we offer Sculptra treatments. If you would like to know more about Sculptra injections, contact us. We will answer all your questions about the preparation before the treatment, your treatment procedure, and how to take good care of your skin after treatment.
What are Sculptra Injections?
Sculptra not only targets and reduces wrinkles and fine lines in the face, but it also builds the facial structure underneath the skin. It is the world’s first biocompatible collagen stimulator. It is designed to treat wrinkles and deep facial folds. It also helps to restore natural volume loss as a result of aging, and decrease the appearance of hollow facial contours. These things happen as your skin loses elasticity and the natural ability to produce collagen.
An advantage of Sculptra is that it does not only target the surface of your skin. It penetrates deeper layers and restores the structure of your face with a synthetic version of your body’s collagen. It is a versatile treatment compatible with many different types of people because it is a non-animal-derived biostimulator. This lowers the risk of allergic reactions.
What is Sculptra BBL?
A Sculptra butt lift works slightly differently compared to similar treatments. Normally, volume is added by using hyaluronic acid. However, Sculptra BBL injects a serum called poly-L-lactic acid into your dermal layers. Poly-L-lactic acid stimulates the natural production of collagen in your body.
What is Sculptra Hip Dips?
Sculptra hip dip enhancement is a minimally invasive treatment that targets the shape of the hips. It aims to improve the shape of your hips without leaving scars.
How Does Sculptra work?
Sculptra is a non-surgical injectable treatment that reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Sculptra is a low-risk treatment that offers long-lasting results. When Sculptra is administered, small amounts of poly-L-lactic acid are injected into the dermis. This helps to stimulate the production of collagen. Collagen assists with restoring volume in your skin that has been lost through the years. A loss of volume could be the result of extreme weight loss, age, genetics, or injury.
What Are the Benefits of Sculptra?
Sculptra offers many great benefits. There are a few key notes that make this biostimulator unique. Sculptra does not only treat the surface of your skin but goes deep down to stimulate your body’s natural collagen production. Here are a few benefits you can enjoy when using Sculptra:
Sculptra can help to reduce the appearance of scars that have been left by chickenpox and acne.
If your skin has lost elasticity, your face will develop a sagging appearance. Sculptra can help restore elasticity in your skin by rebuilding underlying muscle structure. This will make your face look and feel healthier.
Sculptra restores volume in your skin, which can improve the contours and structure of your face.
The results that you gain with Sculptra appear gradually and look natural. They will continue to increase for up to six months after your treatment and last for up to two years.
Sculptra is FDA-approved, making it a safe treatment.
What Does Sculptra Treat?
Sculptra is a versatile treatment that can be used on multiple facial areas. Here are just a few areas it can benefit:
It can correct hollow areas in your temples.
Decrease the appearance of marionette lines.
Reduce and remove deep nasolabial folds.
It can also add volume to your cheeks.
Sculptra can also be used to treat wrinkles and fine lines in other areas, such as your lips, nose, and eyes.
How many Sculptra Sessions Do I Need?
You can benefit from the results achieved with Sculptra by having just a few treatment sessions. The number of treatments will depend on the condition of your skin and your desired goals. Typically, three to four treatments are enough to give you long-lasting results that can be seen and felt for up to two years. During your initial consultation, we will discuss all these aspects and design a treatment plan unique to your needs.
Am I a Suitable Candidate for Sculptra?
Sculptra is a suitable treatment for anyone wanting to address facial wrinkles. If you would like to restore volume in your skin that has been lost due to age, you can use Sculptra. Sculptra is a minimally invasive treatment that has helped many people. It does not contain any animal derivatives, so there is a lower risk of allergic reactions.
What to Expect After Treatment
One of the great advantages of Sculptra is that it does not require any downtime after treatment. This means that you will be able to continue with your daily activities. The only recommendation is that you avoid strenuous exercise for at least one day after your treatment. Other than that, you will be able to continue with your daily routine and enjoy the benefits that Sculptra offers.
