Every woman fights against the signs of aging. As you get older, collagen and elastin production in your body naturally decreases, which leads to volume loss, lines, wrinkles, and loose skin. There are a lot of options for dermal fillers to reverse the effects of aging. The longest lasting of these options is Sculptra.
How Sculptra Works
Sculptra is a dermal filler that requires several treatments to get the desired results. The active ingredient in Sculptra is l-lactic acid. This compound stimulates your body’s own collagen production, which will tighten your skin, create volume, and smooth your skin. With each treatment, more collagen is produced until you get the results you desire. Because Sculptra works with your body’s natural processes, the results are much longer lasting than other dermal fillers.
How Many Treatments?
Sculptra is not a quick fix for lines and wrinkles, but it is a long-lasting solution. It takes several treatments of Sculptra before you will have the results you are looking for. Most women have the most benefit from about three treatments. These treatments are spread out about one every three weeks. At the end of the process, you will have smoother, tighter, younger-looking skin.
How Long Does It Last?
Sculptra has the longest lasting results of any dermal filler. While most dermal fillers last only 6 to 12 months on average depending on the filler, Sculptra results can last up to two years. Of course, individual results vary, and it does depend on how quickly your body’s collagen production naturally decreases once more.
