Long lasting wrinkle reduction in Ft. Worth
Do you want the smoothest, most youthful face possible with wrinkle filler treatment but are hesitant that people may notice that you’ve “done something?” Then consider the benefits of Sculptra® Aesthetic, a unique filler that delivers natural-looking, lasting results for several years.
How Sculptra Aesthetic works
Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic, biocompatible ingredient that works naturally with your skin to induce new collagen production. Instead of just sitting beneath the skin, poly-L-lactic acid helps your skin rebuild its natural framework of collagen. As the particles of poly-L-lactic acid are absorbed, they are replaced with natural collagen, helping to smooth out wrinkles gradually. The effects can last up to 2 years before another treatment is necessary.
What can Sculptra treat?
Sculptra Aesthetic is FDA approved for treatment of moderate to deep wrinkles around the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds). It can also be effective in treating wrinkles around the chin or marionette lines around the mouth. When administered by an experienced, qualified provider, Sculptra can safely help you look younger and better refreshed.
Sculptra Aesthetic vs. Other Fillers
While all dermal fillers are considered temporary, some are more temporary than others. Some popular hyaluronic acid fillers only last about 6 to 12 months before they are safely absorbed by the body and re-treatment is necessary to maintain the effects. These fillers are great for patients wanting an instant boost in their appearance without committing to a long-term result.
However, many of us would rather have a result that lasts for years, even if that means we have to wait a little while for the final results to be apparent. In fact, a gradual onset of results can be a real perk for those who want to minimize the chance of anyone noticing that they had a little help getting their youthful, smooth skin. If you fall into this category, Sculptra may be a great option for you.
How many treatments will I need?
Sculptra works most effectively when given in a course of 2 or 3 treatments over several months. After that, however, you should not need another treatment for up to 2 years to maintain the results.
When will I see the final results?
Many patients notice improvement immediately after treatment. As the Sculptra particles are absorbed into the skin, some patients notice a temporary return of their wrinkles. Within a few days, the Sculptra gets to work helping your skin build new collagen. Most patients experience final results about 1 or 2 months after treatment.
