Facial wrinkles and folds are often the result of natural collagen loss that happens with age. At Cosmetica Plastic Surgery and Anti-Aging, we offer Sculptra to target aging at its source, stimulating the body’s own collagen production for smoother, younger-looking skin.

There are many different facial fillers and anti-aging treatments available that can help provide one with an uplifted and youthful appearance. One such filler is known as Sculptra. This injectable filler is designed to enhance facial volume and provide someone with a more vibrant look. Unlike other injectables that primarily focus on fading away fine lines and wrinkles, Sculptra is dedicated to improving volume

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is an injectable dermal filler, but unlike other formulas, the results are not instant. Instead, it utilizes a synthetic bio-activator called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). This triggers the body into producing more collagen which gives the skin its strong, youthful framework. Over time, wrinkles will begin to improve, and some youthful volume will be restored.


Sculptra Fills Volume And Not Lines

Many of the most popular injectables are effective in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but as one experiences deficiencies in volume, they’re aged look returned much more rapidly than they thought. In addition to wrinkles, one of the early signs of aging is a loss of volume.

In order to achieve truly younger-looking skin, volume must be restored in the facial region. Otherwise, your skin won’t look as youthful as you would like. Thanks to Sculptra, however, there’s no need to worry. You now have a safe and effective treatment available to enhance facial volume.

Who is a Candidate for Sculptra?

Candidates are those who experience a loss of collagen production with age, resulting in volume loss, flattened facial features, and wrinkles and folds in the lower face. Sculptra offers a nonsurgical solution to these signs of aging that are not severe enough to require a surgical procedure like the facelift. Candidates should not choose this injectable if they want to see results right before an upcoming event, as Sculptra can take a few weeks to begin showing results. However, those who want to restore volume loss slowly and subtly can benefit from the natural-looking results of Sculptra.

The Treatment Process

Sculptra is nonsurgical, but patients can expect a slight pinch with each injection. Topical numbing cream can be applied prior to treatment if patients are worried about discomfort. Adley DaSilva will then map out where the injection will be placed. He will inject a small amount of the formula in the target area, either to fill out the cheeks, jawline, or smooth out lines around the nose, mouth, and chin. This process can take about 15 minutes to complete.

Recovery and Results

There is no required downtime after treatment with Sculptra, however, patients can expect some swelling, redness, and itching at the injection sites. Sculptra will not work instantly like some other fillers, but over the next several weeks, patients should begin to notice improved volume as their collagen production increases, smoothing out lines and wrinkles. While one treatment session can be enough for mild concerns, we recommend several sessions for optimal volume restoration. The results of your treatment with Sculptra can last for over two years before a touch-up session is needed.

Sculptra Can Help Increase Collagen Production

When the Sculptra solution is injected into the body, it will work to increase the production of collagen, aiding in the increase of volume on the face. Collagen is a protein in the body that contributes to maintaining the quality of the skin and benefits it by maintaining a healthy and smooth look.

Sculptra is created from poly-L-lactic acid and has to be administered under the guidance of a skilled cosmetic surgeon. The results you experience will be noticeable immediately and the increase in collagen ensures that you’ll continue to see improvements over a long period of time.

Sculptra Provides Long-Lasting Results

The meticulous administration of the Sculptra injectable in the skin takes time to settle because the poly-L-lactic acid directly impacts collagen production levels which takes time. The increase in collagen will enhance the look of the skin and provide it with a rejuvenated and vibrant look.

Natural Looking Results

One major benefit of using the Sculptra injectable treatment for improving your facial aesthetic is the fact that you’ll experience natural-looking results. Unlike other injectables, you can rest easy knowing that you won’t have a stiff or unnatural look that makes the work you have done apparent.

The Sculptra treatment is designed to provide you with incredible results that will help you look and feel great about yourself. With healthier and younger looking skin, you can feel more confident in your look and the people around you will take notice. You may begin to see changes in both your social and professional life.

Sculptra is Safe to Use for Repeat Treatments

Even though the Sculptra treatment provides long-lasting results, the effects of time will eventually show themselves again some time in the future. When this happens, you can feel safe undergoing the treatment again for longer-lasting results that you can trust. It is a safe and effective treatment option for people of all skin types.
