When it comes to anti-aging, injectables have long been considered the quick-fix for fine lines and wrinkles. Products like Botox offer almost immediate results, but those results only last for a few months at a time. Sculptra Aesthetic, however, is a new injectable that offers slower results that last as long as two years. Is slower better? Find out more about what makes Sculptra Aesthetic different and whether or not it could be the right injectable for you.
What is Sculptra Aesthetic?
Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable poly-L-lactic acid approved for treatment of the lines and skin folds around the nose and mouth. Instead of one treatment session, it is administered an average of three times over the course of a few months. Once injected, Sculptra Aesthetic works to restore the loss of collagen in your face. Collagen is responsible for your skin’s natural plumpness and firmness, and the reduction of collagen is one cause of facial lines. When the collagen is restored over time, your smile lines will be less visible. The results of Sculptra can last two or more years.
What makes Sculptra Aesthetic different?
Instead of offering a quick fix with results that quickly fade, Sculptra Aesthetic works gradually over a few months. Because these results are gradual it can provide a more natural experience. Your friends may not even notice you’ve had work done as you seem to slowly get younger-looking with time!
Sculptra Aesthetic is quickly becoming a popular choice among men and women who want subtle, lasting changes. Instead of a quick lift over lunch, they want to slowly turn back the hands of time. Talk to a trained plastic surgeon today to find out if this more-natural experience is right for you.
