Filler - Sculptra
Sculptra is a non-surgical injectable treatment that is used to stimulate collagen production and improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss in the face. Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible and biodegradable substance that has been used for decades in medical implants such as dissolvable stitches.
One of the major benefits of Sculptra is that it provides a subtle and natural-looking result. Unlike other dermal fillers, Sculptra does not provide immediate results. Instead, it works gradually over time, stimulating collagen production and restoring volume to the face. This gradual process allows for a natural-looking result, rather than the "over-filled" appearance that can sometimes occur with other dermal fillers.
Another benefit of Sculptra is that it is a long-lasting treatment. Sculptra can last up to two years, which means that patients can enjoy the benefits of the treatment for a longer period of time. This is a significant advantage over other dermal fillers, which typically last only a few months.
Sculptra is also a versatile treatment option, it can be used to address a variety of concerns related to aging skin, including wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss in the face. Sculptra can be used to lift and contour the cheeks, smooth out marionette lines, and fill in hollow temples, for example.
Sculptra is a non-surgical treatment, which means that there is no downtime associated with the procedure. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment. Additionally, Sculptra is a minimally invasive procedure, with minimal discomfort and minimal risk of complications.
The treatment procedure involves several injections in the area to be treated, the number of injections will depend on the individual's needs and desired result. The procedure takes about 30 minutes to 1 hour, and the results can be seen gradually over the course of several weeks. The treatment may require a series of sessions spaced four to six weeks apart, after which the results can last for up to two years.
