Sculptra New York City
Sculptra is a facial filler consisting of poly-L-lastic acid. It is uniquely different from other facial fillers because it replaces collagen overtime, resulting in a natural, long-lasting appearance. Sculptra is commonly used to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles, folds, and other facial depressions in the cheeks, temple area, eyebrow area, and even the sides of your face. Sculpture is excellent for global facial filling while the other filler brands are excellent for target areas.
How Does Sculptra Work?
As we age, our body begins to produce less collagen – the main component that helps keep our skin looking smooth and youthful. Although this is a natural part of aging, the effects of decreased collagen production can result in the appearance of wrinkles and facial depressions. When Sculptra is injected, it rests under the deep dermis layer of our skin. Patients will see an immediate correction of the defect but a temporary reappearance will occur within the next few days. Micro-particles of PLLA (poly-L-lastic acid – the main component of Sculptra) then begin to replace the lost collagen. This reinforces the skin’s structure, resulting in the smoothing out of shallow to deep wrinkles, folds, and other facial depressions. Results can vary, but typically last up to two years. On average, a series of three injections are needed over a period of a few months. It’s also important to note that the number of injections per session can also vary from person to person.
