While there is a lot to love about life in beautiful Fort Myers, all of that exposure to the Florida sun can potentially accelerate the facial aging process. Fortunately, a variety of cosmetic injectables can uplift your cheeks, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and restore a rounder, more youthful appearance.
One such product is known as Sculptra Aesthetic. This unique collagen stimulator has helped many patients effectively replace lost collagen and restore facial volume. Join us as we explore Sculptra Aesthetic and discuss the treatment process.
What Is Sculptra Aesthetic?
Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved collagen stimulator that is designed to gradually replace the naturally occurring collagen in your skin. Collagen is responsible for giving your skin structure and volume.
Collagen loss is one of the underlying causes of facial aging and can contribute to the development of fine lines, wrinkles, and other undesirable features.
Sculptra Aesthetic is unlike traditional cosmetic injectables, as it is intended to produce lasting results over time. It is a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator that interacts with the dermis in order to revitalize your skin and boost collagen production.
Standard cosmetic injectables, like hyaluronic acid, produce immediate results by filling in spaces underneath lines, creases, and wrinkles. While these substances can produce results that are immediately visible, your body will naturally absorb and break down the hyaluronic acid over several months.
Conversely, Sculptra Aesthetic works gradually to restore facial volume and fullness. This makes it an inconspicuous treatment option that still is able to produce lasting results. While each patient’s experience is unique, the results produced by Sculptra can potentially last for two years or more.
How Sculptra Aesthetic Differs from Other Cosmetic Injectables
While there are many different cosmetic injectables, they can typically be grouped into one of three main categories. One of the most common types is toxins. These substances temporarily weaken facial muscles, which minimizes the appearance of fine lines.
In addition, traditional fillers, such as hyaluronic acid, are hugely popular. These fillers produce immediately visible results but typically only last for a few months.
The third type of cosmetic injectable is known as a collagen stimulator, which is what Sculptra Aesthetic is classified as.
Although Sculptra Aesthetic produces more gradual results than other injectables, the effects tend to last far longer. This is because it remedies the underlying cause of facial aging instead of just masking the effects of declining collagen production.
How Sculptra Aesthetic Works
While effective, traditional dermal fillers are designed to work just below the skin’s surface in order to fill in wrinkles, lines, and other common signs of aging. These fillers do not address the source of facial skin aging, which is a decline in collagen production.
As you age, your body will gradually begin to produce less collagen. Since collagen serves as the building block for healthy, full skin, this decrease in production can lead to the development of wrinkles, folds, and fine lines.
Sculptra Aesthetic is effective for many patients because it works deep in the dermis of facial skin. It is not a surface-level filler that simply fills in gaps. Instead, Sculptra Aesthetic activates natural processes in order to stimulate collagen production.
Once Sculptra Aesthetic is injected into your desired treatment areas, your body will slowly begin to absorb the microparticles. When this occurs, you will experience an increase in collagen production. This process will help to restore the youthful appearance of your skin.
Sculptra Aesthetic continues to work for several months after your treatment cycle is complete. The treatment should provide gradual improvements that will become more noticeable over time.
