We age slowly, almost imperceptibly – so why do we expect cosmetic procedures to erase the effects of time overnight? Unlike other facial fillers (like those you might see in celebrity tabloids), Sculptra Aesthetic isn’t an instant, dramatic “fix.” Instead, Sculptra works with your body to naturally replace lost collagen, reinforcing your skin’s structure and laying a dermis-deep foundation for a more youthful appearance.
The firm, elastic skin that many of us desire is due to collagen, a structural protein in the skin. As we age, our collagen levels begin to naturally – but inevitably – decline, leading to signs of facial aging like wrinkles and sagging skin. Sculptra is delivered to the deep dermis and works to rebuild lost collagen, attacking the root issues rather than just filling in sunken areas. The main ingredient in Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid, a safe, biocompatible synthetic material that has been used by physicians for several decades. Sculptra is commonly used in the temples, cheeks, deep folds around the mouth, and any area showing significant volume loss in the face. Injections are typically delivered in two or three treatments over a few months, with results lasting over two years.
While Sculptra is proven to be safe and effective by the FDA, you should always be sure to go to a qualified medical provider. Fox Valley Plastic Surgery has extensive training with Sculptra, as well as a variety of other injectable treatments to fight facial aging. Consider Sculptra Aesthetic for gradual, subtle, and long-lasting results.
