Minimizing Signs of Aging with Sculptra by Targeting Wrinkles & Fine Lines 

As we grow older, our skin changes and we lose facial volume each year. If you are looking to increase collagen production, restore lost facial volume, and eliminate wrinkles and fine lines, Sculptra might be right for you.  There are plenty of creams and moisturizers out there that only briefly improve your skin’s appearance. Sculptra addresses the underlying cause of facial aging, not just the symptoms.  

What is Sculptra? 

Sculptra is a type of dermal filler. This cosmetic procedure uses FDA-approved poly-L-lactic acid to reduce deep wrinkles in your skin. This filler is noninvasive. An Illume Injector will inject this filler underneath your skin where you want a fuller or smoother appearance. 

What is Collagen Loss?  

Collagen Loss is common during aging. Collagen is a protein in your skin that provides structure, support, and strength. As you age, your body starts producing less collagen. The skin becomes thinner, drier, and less elastic. The loss of collagen leads to wrinkle formation, sagging skin, uneven texture and tone, and dryness.  

How Can Sculptra Help With Collagen Loss? 

Sculptra works by encouraging the body’s natural collagen production over time. It contains poly-L-lactic acid, which is a biocompatible synthetic substance that has been used in medical applications for decades. 

When Sculptra is injected into the skin, it prompts the body to produce new collagen fibers, which helps improve skin texture, smooth out wrinkles, and restore a more youthful appearance. 

Where Is Sculptra Injected?  

Sculptra is typically injected into specific areas of the face to address signs of aging, wrinkles, and volume loss. The choice of injection sites will depend on the individual’s unique facial anatomy, concerns, and treatment goals.  

Who Might Choose To Get Sculptra? 

Sculptra might be the solution for you if you are seeking non-surgical solutions to address signs of aging, restore facial volume, and improve the overall appearance of your skin. Its minimal downtime makes it easy for individuals with busy schedules. Sculptra can be used on various skin types and tones. 

How Long Does Sculptra Last? 

Usually, Sculptra will last around 2 years. It is not a permanent solution, and you may get injections every few years to maintain your results.  

What is the Recovery Time? 

Since Sculptra is a noninvasive procedure, the healing time is relatively quick compared to other cosmetic treatments. Your skin might be sore, and you could have light bruising at the injection site for a couple of days. Avoid exercising or strenuous activities for at least 24 hours after the injection. You’ll be well enough to go back to your normal activities immediately after the procedure. 

Is Sculptra FDA Approved? 

Yes! Sculptra is a safe form dermal filler. It is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
