A Filler that Lasts Up to Two Years? Say Hello to Sculptra
Everyone’s skin ages. Everyone has wrinkles. And everyone’s skin loses collagen as we age. So, why does this matter? Collagen is the support structure of the skin. For some reason, as we age, the body’s production of this protein decreases. The result is saggy skin prone to wrinkling, creases, and volume loss.
To combat this, Dr. Kayastha uses long-lasting Sculptra Aesthetic to replace lost collagen and correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds.
Sculptra is a Different Kind of Filler
Sculptra is different from other fillers in that its results are not immediate. With most fillers, your results are there to see as soon as you leave your doctor’s office. But Sculptra’s effects build over time. This filler is made from poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which works within the skin to replace lost collagen. Because it slowly rebuilds collagen, Sculptra is the first facial injectable that gives you subtle results over time. This makes for a natural-looking appearance that keeps improving, not an instant change as with other fillers. Dr. Kayastha usually recommends three injection sessions over a few months for the best results. These results can then last for over two years!
How Does it Work?
Sculptra is injected into the deep dermal layer of the skin. Microparticles of PLLA work within the deep dermis to rebuild lost collagen and provide structural skin support. As the PLLA is absorbed a collagen framework is created. This reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness to shallow to deep wrinkles and folds.
