Dermacare is excited to announce the use of Sculptra Aesthetics to our practice. This revolutionary injectable treatment gradually reduces the appearance of fine line and deeper facial creases for a natural look that is decidedly younger over time. Sculptra Aesthetics offers long-lasting results, without giving the impression you had your face “done.”
What is Sculptra Aesthetics?
Sculptra Aesthetics is an injectable formula containing poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic substance that replaces lost facial volume and stimulates the body’s own collagen production. Collagen provides important support to the underlying skin structure, which help keeps skin firm and supple. Over time, our bodies produce less collagen, leading to loose, sagging skin and the formation of wrinkles.
Candidates for the Procedure
Candidates for Sculptra Aesthetics are men and women that want to reverse the signs of aging on the face. It can be used both to minimize the appearance of facial wrinkles and restore volume to areas like the cheeks and jawline. The formula is particularly effective for the following areas:
– Nasolabial folds (lines extending from the nose to the corners of the mouth)
– Marionette lines (creases running from the corners of the mouth to the chin)
– Smile lines (vertical lines that appear at the corners of the mouth)
– Hollow areas around the cheeks and chin
– Sagging skin around the jawline (jowling)
Sculptra Aesthetic injections involve little discomfort and patients can return to regular activities as soon as the procedure is over. Some patients experience mild swelling and bruising around the injection sites, which will subside within a few days.
Sculptra is different from other soft tissue fillers in that the results appear gradually over time. Patience pays off with this treatment, since results that are achieved can be both dramatic and long-lasting. Because results develop slowly, few people will ever realize you had a cosmetic treatment – but they are likely to comment on how refreshed and youthful you look!
Most patients require a series of Sculptra treatment sessions to get the full results they want. A typical treatment program involves three sessions, spaced approximately six weeks apart. After the sessions are complete, patients will continue to enjoy improvement to their appearance over time. Results of Sculptra Aesthetic may last for up to two years before a touch-up treatment is required.
