Sculptra, the new derma filler
Posted on February 18, 2014 by Ella Fedonenko
Last week, we introduced you to a new derma filler and volumizing drug, Voluma, that was FDA-approved in Dec., 2013. But when it comes to restoring fullness to areas of the face that have lost their youthful contours, Sculptra offers another very attractive alternative.
Introduced with FDA-approval, in 2004, Sculptra was immediately hailed as the non-invasive “liquid facelift” that would rival many of the stunning effects of surgery. Of course, as an injectable procedure, Sculptra does not offer the permanent results of the traditional facelift, but with results lasting up to two years, it’s also not quite so temporary.
As noted earlier, one of the most prevalent signs of age is a physiological process that is quite inevitable. As the face matures, there is a gradual loss of fatty tissue that actually supports your skin and facial structure. The results of this loss – combined with the effects of gravity – is a creation of hollows or “sunken” areas, usually, in the cheek and temple areas.
Injected into the deepest layers of your skin, Sculptra works with your own body to stimulate your natural production of Collagen, the substance that maintains the look of young, plump skin. Sculptra is not a “quick fix;” it’s a subtle process that continues over a period of months.
So, does Sculptra perform exactly the same as facelift surgery? No, but at a fraction of the cost, without the extended discomfort and downtime and with the long-lasting, youthful appearance you long for – call us about Sculptra today.
