Sculptra® is a cosmetic injectable that returns lost volume to facial areas, helping to restore a more youthful appearance. In addition, it promotes the growth of collagen, an essential substance that is a foundation of healthy skin. If you have been looking for a non-surgical way to enhance your appearance, then it is a good idea to learn more about this incredible injectable.
This injectable has been FDA-approved for cosmetic use in the United States since 2009. It is a safe and non-invasive procedure. The active ingredient in Sculptra® is a synthetic form of lactic acid, a substance that is generated in muscles following exercise or strenuous activity. This synthetic material doesn’t contain any animal products or human DNA. It is metabolized naturally by the body and eliminated.
Uses of Sculptra®
Sculptra® adds natural-looking volume to facial areas and encourages the production of your own collagen, helping the results to last longer. This particular dermal filler works best for certain types of aesthetic issues. If you have lost volume to your cheeks over time or have particularly bony cheek bones, Sculptra® can help by increasing the plumpness of the skin in that area.
If you have particularly deep folds between your nose and mouth or your mouth and chin, these can be filled with Sculptra®, as can hollow areas around the temples. This useful dermal filler can even provide definition to the jawline in patients who would prefer a stronger profile.
What to Expect
Since Sculptra® helps to rebuild lost collagen, it can take between 45 to 90 days to see optimal results. However, with at least one yearly maintenance session, you can expect those results to last for approximately two years. There is no recovery time needed following your session. It’s fine to return to your everyday activities, including wearing makeup in most cases.
