There are times when we all feel a bit discouraged as we look in the mirror. Age eventually catches up with us, and the signs inevitably appear in our faces. Tight, smooth skin begins to sag and develops wrinkles, causing us to look older than we feel. When you’re ready to turn back the signs of aging, visit Galanis Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, CA and ask about Sculptra.
What Is Sculptra?
You may have already tried fillers which work beautifully for a while; however, you may need more than just hit pause on muscle movement. What is eventually needed is to rebuild the skin from the inside out, and the key to doing that is collagen.
A healthy collagen layer provides the structural support that skin needs to remain smooth and elastic. As we age, our collagen production drops naturally; eventually, there’s just not enough to support the skin. Sculptra works by powerfully stimulating your body to produce more collagen.
How It Works
Sculptra is an injectable liquid form of lactic acid: something your body naturally produces after exercise. When injected strategically into the skin, it activates collagen growth, causing the tissues that support your skin to grow gradually in volume. As new, healthy collagen builds in the area, the lactic acid gradually dissipates to make room for it.
Because this treatment causes your skin to rebuild from the inside out, it doesn’t have immediate results. Instead, expect results from four to six months after your treatment.
This injectable is most often used at the temples and to reverse the look of hollow or sunken cheeks. It’s also often used in the chin or jawline, and it can reduce the folds and wrinkles on the chest, as well.
The results appear at four to six months, and many patients will continue to see positive change for as long as nine months. After that, you can expect to keep your results for two to three years, which is longer than the results typically seen from hyaluronic acid fillers.
Anyone who has lost volume in their face due to aging or weight loss or who is seeing more wrinkles than they’d like could be a good candidate for Sculptra. This treatment can be used on both men and women and on people of all ages. If you’re interested in finding a solution to wrinkles and volume loss, come talk to us about your filler options.
There is no real downtime with this treatment. For the most part, you can go about your daily activities as normal after treatment. All you need to do is avoid extensive sun exposure or intensive exercise for a day or two.
