Sculptra injections can enhance facial contours and restore volume without surgery
- Posted on: Jun 30 2020
The aging process can cause a number of changes to the body, but one of the most noticeable is that of the face. As the years move on, our skin changes. Collagen and elastin are naturally lost starting around the age of 30, resulting in volume loss and skin laxity. This contributes to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that can make patients look older than they feel. Instead of just accepting these changes, patients are urged to book a consultation appointment with Dr. Anthony Waechter of Aura Skin Spa in San Francisco, CA to ask about cosmetic injectables such as Sculptra.
What is Sculptra?
Dr. Anthony Waechter describes Sculptra as a specialized cosmetic injectables that can be used in restoring volume that is lost with time. Sculptra is a gel formulated with poly-L-lactic acid, or PLLA, which is a biocompatible and biodegradable compound that is found in dissolvable stitches. Sculptra is a gel that is administered underneath the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production to add volume to the face and fill fine lines and wrinkles. Sculptra results are often long-lasting, providing up to two years of enhancement. Patients can have several treatment sessions done over time to maintain the results and keep their collagen stores high.
Who is a candidate for Sculptra?
Any healthy adult patients who wants to rejuvenate their appearance while maintaining long-term results may want to consider the advantages of using Sculptra. Many men and women can delay the need for plastic surgery by using Sculptra injections when mild to moderate volume loss occurs. The team at Aura Skin Spa finds that with a thorough evaluation during an initial consultation appointment, the doctor can determine if patients are a good fit for Sculptra. Many are excited to learn that this injectable can be combined with other injectables for a dramatic “liquid face lift” that offers months of improvement.
