Do you have fine lines and wrinkles that are not going away with the use of over-the-counter anti-aging creams? Sculptra® injections may be an ideal treatment solution for you. These non-surgical cosmetic injections can help boost collagen levels to achieve a healthier and younger appearance with minimal downtime and without the risks of major cosmetic surgery.
How Sculptra Injections Work
Sculptra injections contain poly-L-lactic acid to restore collagen and correct deep facial lines and wrinkles. It works by helping to increase the skin’s thickness to fill in sunken areas and smooth folds. The injection can be done in less than an hour. Multiple injections are performed to distribute the product evenly across the area being treated.
Repeat treatments are necessary to help repair and revitalize the skin. Approximately three to six treatments are performed to achieve the desired results. After the first set of treatments, results could last up to two years. You may experience redness and swelling that can be minimized with the use of ice packs and over-the-counter pain medication.
Ideal Candidates for Sculptra Injections
Individuals seeking Sculptra injections should be in good physical health. If you have skin infections or keloid scarring, you may not be a good candidate for this treatment. Sculptra injections are not recommended for pregnant women or individuals with an underlying medical condition that may impact healing.
