Collagen is naturally produced by the body. It’s what keeps skin firm and supple. It is a common ingredient in skincare products, but sometimes an over-the-counter cream isn’t enough to prevent wrinkles and sagging skin. By the time you reach the age of twenty, your body is producing less collagen. However, it doesn’t mean you can’t have a more youthful appearance.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is a synthetic filler not to be confused with products containing hyaluronic acid. Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) that works with your skin to replenish lost collagen. The results are not instant, it takes a few days to notice significant results. Since the results appear gradually over time, you look younger naturally.
The long-lasting filler is FDA-approved. It restores skin volume, erasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Your cheeks will look plumper with less sagging. Even frown lines seem to disappear.
Most clients at Orange County Cosmetic Surgery return for three sessions spread out over four months for the best results. Your results typically last for around two years before you need to return.
Are There Any Potential Side Effects with Sculptra?
Sculptra is a dermal filler using a biodegradable substance accepted by the body. It helps to minimize any potential risks, but you may still experience a few side effects that can include,
- Slight Bleeding
Small lumps may also form around the injection site, but most side effects disappear within a day or two.
Is Sculptra Right For You?
Getting older isn’t easy, especially when you feel younger than you look. While there’s no lasting solution for erasing the common signs of aging, injectable fillers like Sculptra can make you look years younger.
By plumping up sagging skin, you can erase lines and wrinkles giving you a fresh, natural-looking youthful appearance. Since the results look natural, no one needs to know you visited Dr. Miller at Orange County Cosmetic Surgery.
