Dermal fillers are a popular cosmetic option for people who wish to improve the overall look of their face. It can help restore a more youthful appearance and improve your self-confidence. Sculptra Aesthetic is one of the best treatments available for a variety of reasons. Let’s take a look at a few reasons why you may want to consider this biostimulator.

Encourages the Natural Growth of Collagen

As you age, your body’s natural ability to produce collagen declines. Wrinkles begin to develop, and the skin starts to sag as it gradually loses youthful elasticity. Sometimes, this happens to younger individuals as well. Your skin can prematurely age due to your environment and lifestyle. For example, if you have regularly sat in tanning beds for years, it can cause your skin to lose its suppleness faster.

Sculptra can correct this problem as it encourages the natural growth of collagen, restoring your skin and giving you a more youthful appearance.

Low Maintenance and Faster Recovery

Sculptra is a low-maintenance cosmetic treatment that only involves getting a few injections in your problem areas. The treatment can take anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes, depending on how many areas you want treated. After you get your injections, Nurse Practitioner Dana Protomastro will massage your face. Make sure to pay attention to how she kneads your skin, as you will have to perform the same technique for a few minutes each day for five days.

Although you may experience minor bruising, swelling, and tenderness in the treated areas for 12 to 48 hours, you will be able to immediately resume your normal routine after treatment. Sculptra results are not immediate, as it takes some time for the collagen to build up, but you will find that it’s worth the wait.

Addresses Areas Its Competitors Can’t

One of the biggest reasons to consider Sculptra is that it can address problem areas that other biostimulators cannot. Deeply lined skin of the neck, hollow cheeks, and anywhere there are deeper lines can be addressed with Sculptra.

Natural Results

Sculptra provides natural-looking results because it doesn’t work in the same way as similar cosmetic injectables and dermal fillers. It gradually retrains your own fibroblasts to start up the production of your body’s natural collagen and elastin, which leads to a smoother face and more youthful, natural volume. You will see the years wiped right from your face over the months it takes for collagen to build up and give you the age-defying look you desire.

Long-Lasting Results

Although traditional injectables have to be administered periodically after several months, this is not the case with Sculptra. This is another reason to consider it as your cosmetic treatment of choice.

While the results can take longer to fully show up when compared to dermal fillers, the results with Sculptra are long-lasting due to the way the treatment stimulates the growth of new collagen deep within your skin. Results typically last up to two years.

On average, your treatment takes place over two or three sessions, and your results should begin to show within four to six months after your last treatment session. After your procedure, you may choose to have repeat treatment sessions every two years to maintain results.
