How Sculptra Aesthetic Can Make You Appear 10 Years Younger

Nov 13, 2019 | Skin Care


As you have aged, you’ve noticed that your skin is not as firm or flawless as it once was. And with time, more fine lines and wrinkles appear, your skin begins to sag, and the texture and color changes. If you’re interested in anti-aging treatments to help you look younger, but are afraid of looking like you have “had work done”, you might be the perfect candidate for Sculptra® Aesthetic.

What is Sculptra Aesthetic?

Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable dermal “filler” that has been in use for decades. It was first approved in 2004 to treat facial fat loss that results in deep folds and sunken cheeks in people living with HIV. Sculptra was later approved for treating nasolabial folds and facial wrinkles for a more youthful appearance. Sculptra is not a typical dermal filler because it does not cause an immediate fill – it’s not a quick fix or an overnight miracle. Sculptra gradually replaces lost collagen in your skin and gives you a younger, natural-looking appearance.

How Sculptra Aesthetic Works to Make You to Look Younger

The key ingredient in Sculptra is Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which is a sugar molecule that acts as a collagen stimulator. Collagen is the body’s most abundant protein and a key structural component of healthy-looking skin – it gives our skin resiliency, shape, and elasticity. As we age, collagen production in our body decreases and we also lose fat that once plumped up the cheeks and areas around the mouth and eyes. As a result, you may start to notice the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.

Sculptra helps stimulate natural collagen production no matter how many decades of collagen loss you’ve experienced. Once injected, the micro-particles of Poly-L-lactic acid start working within the deep dermis to restore your skin’s inner structure and volume. Also, rebuilt collagen strands gradually restore the look of fullness to folds and wrinkles. As more collagen is produced, the skin becomes stronger, refined, and more youthful looking.

Sculptra works gradually and subtly to correct facial wrinkles and folds. A full treatment consists of 3 treatments scheduled about three weeks apart. Because the changes are gradual, you will get natural-looking results that last up two years. Talk about aging backward!
