Sculptra is a nonsurgical, minimally invasive way to add volume and fullness in all the right places and to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Read on to find out more about Sculptra!
What Is Sculptra?
An injectable that is made of poly-L-lactic acid microparticles. It is injected deep into the skin to stimulate the production of collagen. A protein that helps skin to look young, healthy, and smooth. It can help to reduce wrinkles and to restore volume to the face and even the buttocks.
You’ll see some change right away after your injections, but these initial results are only temporary. It will take about 6 weeks before you really start to see improvements. Results from a injection can last for up to 2 years, as the microparticles continue to encourage new collagen to be produced. This is one thing that sets Sculptra apart from other fillers because new collagen grows. The results last longer than they do with fillers that just hydrate the skin. One should keep in mind that it will take three sessions. Over the course of 3 to 4 months to complete a Sculptra treatment.
Sculptra is safe and FDA-approved; it has been in use for over 20 years. It is biocompatible and biodegradable and is generally well-accepted by most patients. However, there are some possible minor side effects that can come with any dermal filler: itching, bruising, tenderness, swelling, and redness. If you have been given Sculptra to augment your buttocks, you should sleep on your side for the first couple of days after your treatments.
