As we age, our skin and face change gradually. This is common due to the loss of natural collagen and elastin stores that once gave our face a firm and supple appearance. However, instead of letting time take its course and age the skin, many patients combat these changes with the help of their dermatologist. At Aura Skin Spa in San Francisco, CA, patients in the community can seek improvement in their appearance with injectables such as Sculptra.
What is Sculptra and how does it work?
Sculptra is one of many injectables available at Aura Skin Spa. This particular injectable is formulated with poly-L lactic acid. This is an ingredient in Sculptra that stimulates collagen and elastin production where it is injected. When used in areas of the face that often become hollow, such as the cheeks, it can add firmness and volume for a more youthful look. With a few treatments over the course of several weeks, patients can maintain their results for several years. Sculptra is a long-lasting alternative to other injectables, including dermal fillers, which may only last several months before touchups are required to maintain results.
Who is a candidate for Sculptra?
Many of our patients who choose Sculptra are in their late 30’s and up. They are patients who are seeking a non-surgical approach to facial enhancement. Patients may be men or women concerned with the appearance of their face due to the signs of aging. Patients who are candidates for Sculptra may also be candidates for other cosmetic injectables such as dermal fillers and neuromodulators which can also address fine lines and wrinkles. Some patients choose to combine services for amazing results. This can be discussed with the team at Aura Skin Spa during a consultation and initial evaluation in the office.
