There are many types of lip fillers and dermal fillers, but Sculptra is especially unique and available at VIDA Aesthetic Medicine. Most dermal fillers are made with hyaluronic acid (HA), which occurs naturally in the body. These fillers provide immediate results, but the results are also temporary and often last about six months on average. Sculptra does not immediately “fill” the target area with HA, but rather works in tandem with your body to rebuild collagen over time.
Sculptra can be injected to treat marionette lines, smile lines, and chin wrinkles. It’s an FDA-approved injectable that kick-starts collagen production in the body at the injection sites. Collagen is a protein that creates the framework in the body to support tissue and cells. Sculptra results are all-natural and can last for over two years, making it a semi-permanent solution to replace lost collagen.
Sculptra Addresses the Causes of Aging—Not Solely the Symptoms
There are all types of anti-aging treatments available, and they all work differently. Sculptra is made using poly-L-lactic acid, which also occurs naturally in the body and stimulates collagen production. This is very different than the collagen creams that you mind find at the drugstore. Creams do not penetrate the skin, making topical collagen creams effective moisturizers that only temporarily help the skin’s appearance.
Collagen supplements remain inconclusive in studies at best. Neurotoxins like Botox prevent muscles from forming wrinkles and last a few months on average. HA fillers, as we have seen, work right away but also only last for a few months. Sculptra works diligently over time, with full results a few months after your final treatment. It restores the underlying, deeper structure of the skin to reduce facial wrinkles from the inside out.
Sculptra Works with the Body
Those who choose Sculptra want a product that works from the deepest level of the dermis to rejuvenate collagen production and work with the skin’s inner volume and structure. The face looks fuller, more youthful, and healthier every week following Sculptra injections. Most clients need three Sculptra injections spaced a few weeks apart for the best results.
