Because youth is so highly valued in today’s world, you might feel that the lines and wrinkles on your face are affecting your personal and professional life. Fortunately, there are many anti-wrinkle solutions that are offer convenience and outstanding natural results. One of these treatments is Sculptra.
How Sculptra Works
Like most injectable anti-wrinkle solutions, Sculptra is a minimally invasive procedure to improve the contours of your face and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Sculptra replenishes the collagen that the skin loses due to aging. Collagen tissue forms the base of the skin, offering the skin structure and elasticity. Loss of collagen due to aging results in wrinkles, gaunt cheeks, and a tired appearance.
Sculptra boosts collagen levels in the skin by stimulating gradual natural creation of new collagen protein. Because of this, the injections offer more natural-looking results than many other treatment options.
The treatment is performed over the course of several sittings, and each sitting will bring you closer to your desired target of younger-looking skin. People will notice that you are looking radiant and youthful but may not guess that you have been doing anything other than living a healthy lifestyle to achieve these results.
A Safe Treatment
Sculptra is made of materials that are proven to be medically safe. They have been in use in various medical procedures for many years. Since the treatment is spread over many sittings, the procedure takes time to show results, but this also makes it safer.
For patients who don’t want to look unnaturally young or don’t want their skin to look too stiff, Sculptra, with its gradual reversal of the aging process, can be a beneficial option.
Is Sculptra Right for You?
It’s best to understand the outcomes that the procedure offers before you come in for Sculptra treatments. This treatment is ideal for patients looking for more volume in their cheeks and temples to reduce the haggard look that age can bring.
Sculptra offers a fuller appearance to the face, and for many patients who worry about a gaunt facial structure brought on by age, this can be a good solution. Sculptra also offers a reduction in the appearance of facial folds and wrinkles.
If you are considering Sculptra, you need to be patient, as outcomes are slow in coming. However, once you have completed the sittings, you will be amazed by the results. Also, the slower outcomes are in line with a more natural feel to the anti-aging process. The process offers long-term benefits, and you can continue to look young for several months and even years before you need to come in for another round of treatment.
The best part is that you don’t need to take time off work for this treatment, so you can go for as many sittings as your doctor recommends. You might notice discomfort and swelling after the injections, but ice packs and medications that your doctor prescribes can help treat these problems.
