3 Surprising Facts About Sculptra

aesthetic medicine tampaSculptra is one of the newest and most technologically advanced dermal filler that we offer. Sculptra works differently than other fillers, with results coming after several treatments spaced out between 9 to 12 weeks. The results that people are enjoying with Sculptra are undeniable. Celebrities such as Mackenzie Phillips swear by Sculptra. Here are three things you might not have known about this dermal filler.

Good for More Than Just Wrinkles

The signs of aging that most people are concerned with are lines, folds, and wrinkles. Sculptra works to reduce the appearance of mild to deep nasolabial folds, often called laugh lines. You will also notice that your skin is smoother and plumper than it was before the treatments. Yet what you may not be aware of is that your skin is actually healthier, better moisturized, and easier to keep clean and oil free after these treatments. This is because Sculptra stimulates and perpetuates collagen and elastin production in the skin, which makes it as healthy and youthful as it was years ago.

Why It’s Not Just One Treatment

Sculptra takes more than one treatment because it is not made of the same ingredients as most other dermal fillers. Most dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid, but Sculptra uses poly-L-lactic acid, which actually replaces lost collagen over time. In order for the PLLA to work properly, treatments must be spaced out over the course of several weeks. It does take more than one treatment to see definitive results.

Results Last Over Two Years

Did you know that Sculptra is one of the longest lasting dermal fillers on the market? It lasts at least two years in almost all patients. Because the results last so long, the inconvenience and cost of multiple treatments to achieve results is well worth the benefits of not having to get another treatment for at least two years.
