Wrinkles, creases, and volume loss in the face eventually occur in all of us. It is a simple, undeniable fact of aging. While many products help to prolong the time before aging gets the best of you, there is nothing that completely prevents it. And it is at this time that you may be wondering what cosmetic options are available. Dermal fillers provide relief to the stubborn wrinkles and facial volume loss that makes many people want to run from the mirror. However, with so many different types of dermal fillers offered, what is the best choice to fit your needs? While there are several “good” choices when it comes to facial fillers, Sculptra® Aesthetic presents itself as an option worth looking into.
Sculptra® Aesthetic offers a non-invasive treatment to fill facial hollows and smooth the appearance of wrinkles in the cheeks, nasolabial folds, temples, and marionette lines. Sculptra® Aesthetic is a synthetic sugar consisting of lactic acid units. This substance naturally occurs in the body, which makes this a safe and reliable option for your skin needs. Traditionally, treatments consist of two to three sessions spaced a couple of weeks apart and can be used to treat shallow to deep folds and wrinkles in the skin.
Stimulates Collagen Production
What sets Sculptra® Aesthetic apart from other fillers on the market today is that when it is injected it stimulates the body’s collagen production. Collagen is what is responsible for healthy and smooth skin we all desire, and unfortunately, after the age of 18, we begin to lose that collagen, resulting in skin marked with wrinkles and volume loss. This injectable aids your body in creating new collagen to replace what has been damaged and lost through the natural aging process. Over time, this new collagen restores volume, structure, and youthfulness.
While no injectable will provide permanent results, Sculptra® Aesthetic offers results that last longer than any other filler on the market. Most dermal fillers are absorbed by the body within a few months; however, in a clinical study, the results of Sculptra® Aesthetic were shown to last well over two years (which was the length of the study). Traditional dermal fillers reduce wrinkles and fill hollowed spaces by using liquid or gel substances to push up the dermis; it is this reason that fillers can provide visible results immediately. Sculptra® Aesthetic works differently. Instead of only treating the symptoms, Sculptra® Aesthetic goes after the source of the problem, providing aid to one of the underlying causes of wrinkling and volume loss in the face: collagen production. While the visible results offered by Sculptra® Aesthetic appear gradually and can take between two and six months to become apparent, the results that are given, and the longevity of those results, are well worth the wait.
Improves Skin Quality
Another benefit of Sculptra® Aesthetic is that it can improve the quality of your skin. Because it stimulates collagen, you will notice improvements in both your skin’s thickness and elasticity, which will contribute to the overall glow and youthfulness of your face. No other dermal filler on the market can do that.
Because Sculptra® Aesthetic is made up of natural substances in the body and helps your body to stimulate its collagen, there is no change of a heavily made-up “fake” look. Your results will be natural, and your skin will look fresher and more youthful than it has in years.
