Keep reading to learn more about our newest injectable and how it can work for you.
Facing the Facts of Aging
Our bodies change as we get older, especially in the face. Muscles become weaker and skin begins to sag as we lose collagen and elastin. These proteins work together to provide skin its structure and resiliency.
The body naturally produces collagen but creates less of it with age, usually starting in the mid-20s and continuing to diminish over time. Less elasticity in the skin leads to the formation of wrinkles, lines, and crow’s feet. But the skin care experts at Belladerm can help you fight these signs of aging and restore your youthful look.
What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra®, Belladerm’s newest injectable, is used to combat lines and wrinkles, giving your skin that smooth, fuller, and more youthful appearance you desire. This beautifying treatment contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which works with your body to stimulate the production of collagen.
Authorized for use in Europe in 1999 as a facial filler, Sculptra® received FDA approval in 2009 and is now available in more than 40 countries worldwide. The PLLA biodegradable polymer has been safely used in medical settings for decades, often as dissolvable sutures or for soft-tissue implants.
After a series of treatments with Sculptra®, you’ll experience enhanced volume for restored structure and younger-looking skin. Results are gradual and can last up to two years.
Which areas of the face does Sculptra treat?
At Belladerm MedSpa, Sculptra® is used to treat areas of the face that are prone to volume loss.
Treatable areas include, but are not limited to:
- Marionette Lines
How many Sculptra treatments will I need?
Sculptra® requires a series of treatments that are administered 4-6 weeks apart. It comes in vials, and the number of vials needed varies by each individual patient. Usually, our Nurse Injectors will do 2-3 vials per treatment. At Belladerm MedSpa, we require a consultation prior to treatment. During your initial consultation, we will complete a facial evaluation and comprise a customized treatment plan.
When will I see my results?
Sculptra® is a gradual procedure, so results improve over time. Because changes take place over time, you’ll see progressive results in the reduction of facial wrinkles and folds by comparing images taken before treatment with images taken in months following your final treatment. The beauty of Sculptra® is that results are natural, last approximately two years, and improve over time with your body’s natural production of collagen.
