Dysport, Restylane, Botox, Juvederm, Sculptra….the list of injectables goes on. All of these treatments are specific to addressing particular needs and have excellent results. Here, we’ll discuss how Sculptra works and why you should get it.
At Aura Skin Spa, we offer Sculptra, a treatment that corrects shallow or deep facial wrinkles. This FDA approved facial filler can replace lost collagen. This is important because a decrease in collagen is the cause of facial aging. Scuptra can deliver results that last up to two years.
How does Sculptra work?
Sculptra Aesthetic works as an injectable filler. It is created using biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic ingredients like ploy-L-lactic acid (PLLA). This acid will naturally and slowly be absorbed by the body and aids in rebuilding diminished collagen stores. When PLLA is injected far into the dermis, the inner structure of the skin is restored and skin volume enhanced.
Sculptra is known has a collagen stimulater. This means that it is used to strengthen the underlying structure of the skin, thus removing wrinkles. The results of your Sculptra treatment will show up over the course of several treatments (and several months).
Sculptra is administered as an injection. The Sculptra PLLA micro-particles are absorbed, resulting in stimulated collagen creation. With the birth of new collagen fibers, facial volume will slowly but surely be restored while decreasing the appearance of facial folds and wrinkles. The result? A more firm and youthful appearance that looks natural.
