As we age, we lose volume in our faces. As our faces become more hollow, we can look increasingly tired and worn down. To counteract these effects of aging, El Paso Cosmetic Surgery offers Sculptra®. When injected under the skin, Sculptra® can stimulate your own natural collagen growth, subtly and gradually giving you a more youthful appearance.
What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® Aesthetic is different from topical treatments and other facial fillers because it works with your body to help revitalize the production of collagen, the natural substance that gives your skin resiliency, elasticity, and shape.
The fact is, after age 20, you lose about 1% of collagen per year. Sculptra® works to stimulate your own collagen, the main component of smooth, healthy-looking skin. As a result, patients achieve a more youthful-looking appearance that can last more than two years.
What is a Sculptra® Treatment Like?
At the El Paso Cosmetic Surgery Advanced Clinical MedSpa, Sculptra® is injected by our experienced Registered Nurse Injectors. Sculptra® can be used to improve the appearance of wrinkles and facial folds around the nose, mouth, and chin.
The filler can also be used on the body to increase volume in certain areas. Most commonly, people choose to have filler treatments done on their glutes for a more curvaceous figure. The number of vials of Sculptra® that you need will depend on the amount of volume loss in the treatment area and your desired amount of fullness.
Recovery and Results After a Sculptra® Treatment?
There is no downtime after a Sculptra® treatment, and you can immediately return to your usual activities. Some side effects are common with any filler injection, including redness, swelling, and minor bruising at the injection site.
Treatment regimens are typically three to four injection sessions scheduled about three weeks apart. The results from Sculptra® injections appear gradually in the weeks following treatment, as the body produces collagen. The most visible results will be apparent approximately two months after your last treatment. According to clinical studies done by Sculptra®, 80% of patients were satisfied with their treatment results 25 months after their last injection. With Sculptra®, your skin will look less wrinkled and more youthful for up to two years.
Am I a Good Sculptra® Candidate?
If you’re noticing laugh lines and wrinkles around your mouth, nose, or chin, Sculptra® Aesthetic can help, even if you’ve been losing collagen for decades. The treatment is minimally invasive and beneficial for most people who have experienced volume loss. We recommend a consultation with one of our trained clinicians to discuss which dermal filler is right for you.
