6 Reasons to Consider Sculptra Injectable Treatments

Posted on October 24, 2022

Sculptra is a unique dermal filler that doesn’t just fill in facial folds and wrinkles – it stimulates collagen production for gradually developed natural-looking results. If you want to reverse the signs of aging, here are six reasons why you should consider Sculptra injections.

1. Skin Rejuvenation

Sculptra works by stimulating collagen production, a protein in your skin that gives it structure and elasticity. As we age, collagen production slows down and this can lead to sagging skin and hollowed areas of the face (such as the cheeks and under the eyes). Sculptra stimulates collagen production in those hollowed areas to plump the skin and soften facial contours. Sculptra treatment is sometimes referred to as the liquid facelift since this plumping effects lifts the skin and restores a more youthful appearance.

2. Natural Results

Sculptra stimulates your body’s natural collagen production, so the results are completely natural! Sculptra is injected at different points to create a scaffolding effect with complete coverage beneath the skin’s surface. Collagen regrowth takes time so skin improvements will develop gradually without alerting people that you had work done. This gradual development also offers you the reassurance that you will not have an over-filled look.

3. Long-Lasting Results

Unlike other dermal fillers and injectables, Sculptra results can last for two years or more! This is another benefit of the natural collagen rebuilding process stimulated by Sculptra injections. Once the results wear off, you still benefit because your skin has rebuilt collagen and the aging process is slowed down. If you would like to maintain results, you can also choose to receive another set of injections.

4. Low-Maintenance

Although four treatments are recommended during your initial treatment, each of these only takes about 30 minutes and requires no downtime. After your series of Sculptra injections, no more treatments are needed for two years so you can enjoy your results for longer without having to schedule touch-up appointments.

5. Allergy-Safe

Since Sculptra stimulates your body’s natural collagen production, there is no risk of an allergic reaction. Sculptra stimulates collagen with Poly-L-Lactic Acid, and this is the same ingredient used in dissolvable stitches. It can be safely absorbed by your body.

6. Non-Surgical Butt Lift

The plumping effects of Sculptra can be used for more than restoring facial volume loss. Patients who want to enhance their buttocks for a fuller, rounder shape can receive Sculptra injections for a non-surgical butt lift.
