Are you looking for a skin rejuvenation treatment that will last years, not months? Featuring three quick sessions, little downtime and up to two years of impressive results, find out why Sculptra Aesthetic stands out in the vast sea of injectables.
Sculptra is FDA-approved and can rejuvenate the skin around your eyes, lips and other areas of the face that show signs of aging. Via three treatments over the course of a few months, the injectable can restore definition to your face and reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles and facial folds.
Sculptra offers a wide range of advantages over other injectables. These include:
- Results last up to two years, other injectables last for a few months.
- It is completely biocompatible (it won’t harm your body).
- It is injected under your skin, not into your skin.
- Sculptra is placed in a pattern to evenly fill out your face around the target area, not as a “spot” injection.
- Sculptra is supplied as a microcrystal powder mixed with sterile water, other fillers are supplied in gel form.
At your appointment, a Sculptra Aesthetic specialist will inject microscopic crystals under your skin to induce a mild inflammatory reaction. This triggers the formation of new collagen. Collagen production increases gradually after your treatment, with Sculptra’s full volume-enhancing results apparent in about four to six weeks.
Sculptra is injected using a very fine-gauge syringe under (not into) your skin–unlike some dermal injectables. Sculptra is placed evenly under a facial defect, which allows for better results than the “spot” placement of other fillers under a wrinkle or line. Immediately after treatment, target areas are massaged for a few minutes to distribute Sculptra evenly.
Sculptra is made from a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is naturally absorbed by the body as it works to replace lost collagen. Poly-L-lactic acid has been used for decades in dissolvable stitches and as a facial injectable since 1999 in over 30 countries.
There is little to no downtime after receiving Sculptra injections. While there may be some redness and/or swelling, most patients are able to return immediately to their daily schedule. If there are no complications, makeup can be applied several hours after treatment.
With long-lasting results and minimal downtime, Sculptra is a no-brainer. Schedule your Sculptra appointment at Envy Skin Clinic today for a natural, more youthful-looking appearance that can last two years!
