Are you looking for a natural-appearing rejuvenation for your skin? Unlike other dermal fillers, Sculptra works gradually to improve your skin and face contours, giving you a more youthful appearance. It is not a quick-fix but offers a longer-lasting effect to enhance your skin and restore a more youthful appearance, without the invasiveness of plastic surgery. Our team at AuraSpa is happy to offer Sculptra injections for our patients wanting a gradual and lasting dermal filler.
Most dermal fillers provide almost immediate improvement for lines, wrinkles and other aging skin issues. The trade-off is that most dermal filler injection results only last 6-12 months before they fade and require another treatment. Sculptra is different than hyaluronic acid dermal fillers and some other injectables on the market. It does not promise immediate results, but youthful improvements to the skin and facial tissue over a few months that can last two years or more.
How Does Sculptra Work?
Sculptra uses poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic version of the lactic acid that naturally occurs in the body. When injected under the skin, this liquid is a powerful collagen stimulator. Two or more treatments may be needed, usually spaced about 6 weeks apart. Over 4-6 months after treatment, the collagen in your skin can be restored. There is more volume, and the shape of the face returns to a more youthful appearance. For those with hollowed temples or cheeks from aging or weight loss, Sculptra can add volume to give a lifting and filling effect, using natural collagen.
Sculptra can be used alone or in combination with other injectables and anti-aging treatments. To learn more about Sculptra and other options to improve the youthfulness of your appearance, schedule a consultation at our AuraSpa Healing Center in Beverly Hills.
