What Does Sculptra Do?

At Orange County Cosmetic Surgery, we know that your time is extremely valuable and while you still want to look your best, the thought of a long recovery period is stressful. As we age, our body’s production of collagen, the protein responsible for skin elasticity and the key to firm and younger-looking skin, rapidly decreases. Orange County Cosmetic Surgery provides a great alternative to surgical options, yet ones that work better than topical over-the-counter collagen treatments. when it comes to flattening facial wrinkles and rejuvenating your face. By using Sculptra, not only will your face look noticeably younger and your skin tighter, the poly-L-lactic acid stimulates your body’s natural collagen growth.

The poly-L-lactic acid in Sculptra works similar to fillers such as hyaluronic acid, but the results are noticed over a longer period. You might not get the overnight results the other products may bring. Though the hyaluronic acid injections work by bonding with nearby water molecules and plumping the skin from the inside giving a nearly immediate change, the results will eventually fade. Sculptra, however, continues to work months after the injections as the lost collagen is replaced. The injections are spread into 3 sessions over 3 to 4 months. This brings a longer-lasting and more natural change to your face, with noticeable results that can last up to 2 years!
