Sculptra:Everything You Need To Know
Due to the natural aging process your skin starts to lose its full, firm youthful appearance. The skin becomes thinner, loses elasticity and fat loss occurs around the cheek, temples and jawline. This volume loss can make your skin appear looser and your face look saggy making you look older than you are.
Fortunately, Sculptra can help you regain and restore the volume that you have lost. Sculptra is an injectable treatment that stimulates the body’s own collagen to restore facial volume that you have naturally lost.
What Is Sculptra?
Sculptra is an FDA-approved treatment that is injected into the body to enhance cosmetic appearance and beauty. This injectable helps increase and trigger collagen production, which helps tighten the skin and improve skin structure.
Benefits of Sculptra
Sculptra is injected deep in the dermis in areas of fat loss creating a soft, natural, more youthful appearance of the face. Areas that are most suited for Sculptra are hollow cheeks, hollow temples, and hollow chin area. A few benefits of Sculptra are:
- Restores facial volume
- Stimulates your own collagen
- Results can last up to two years
Sculptra improves the texture and appearance of skin, which can enhance your overall aesthetic and appearance. Another huge benefit of Sculptra is that there is little to no downtime after treatments!
Am I a Good Candidate For Sculptra?
Ideal candidates for Sculptra are those who have no allergies to the ingredients in Sculptra. If you are looking to enhance your beauty, look younger, and feel more beautiful, Sculptra may be a great treatment for you.
While it does take time to achieve desired results, may patients argue that it is definitely worth the wait. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Motakis to see if Sculptra is right for you!
What To Expect From a Sculptra Treatment
Treatment time can typically range from 30-45 minutes. Results become visible fairly quickly, but full results can be seen in three to six months after the first treatment. Results can last up to two years. You can also come into the office whenever you feel a touch up is necessary.
During the treatment process however, it is recommended to be treated up to 6 weeks apart to let the body heal, collagen production to increase, and give time for Sculptra to get to work.
