Dermal fillers are injectable treatments used to reverse signs of the aging process like fine lines and wrinkles. These fillers are injected into the skin below the wrinkle, helping smooth it away.
Sculptra is a dermal filler used to treat moderate and harsh wrinkles. While there are many dermal fillers on the market, Sculptra has some unique features that make it different and enable it to act with a subtle and long-lasting approach.
How Is Sculptra Different?
Sculptra is different in many ways. While traditional dermal fillers produce immediate results, Sculptra produces results gradually. This allows for more natural-looking benefits that last longer.
Sculptra is different from most other dermal fillers in that it is a collagen stimulator. It contains PLLA, or poly-L-lactic acid. This works in the dermis layer of the skin, stimulating the tissues to create new collagen that helps tackle the effects of aging. This allows it to produce subtle results that take effect over a period of time.
Its effects can last for a long time, especially compared to other injectables. Many patients have seen its results remain for as long as over two years, whereas some other injectables can only last months.
How Sculptra Works
Sculptra can be effectively used to smooth out wrinkles and contour a patient’s face. The way Sculptra works is what makes it such an excellent solution for aging-related issues.
Unlike other dermal fillers, Sculptra is injected deep into the skin tissues. Other dermal fillers are injected just below the wrinkle or fold. Sculptra, however, is administered all the way into the dermal layer.
The PLLA in Sculptra creates a new collagen structure in the skin, which helps in bringing new volume to the skin. This volumizing effect works over a large area for overall contouring as well as spot wrinkle reduction.
Usually, it is injected over a period of four sessions with a gap of around three weeks between each. The injection process is quite simple and does not require any downtime afterwards, allowing patients to return to their daily schedule.
