The natural aging process can be frustrating, and it can bring a range of unwanted and undesirable changes along with it. You may notice your appearance has started to change as your body’s processes naturally decline. Forming more pesky lines and wrinkles is common as your body produces less collagen, which creates a looser, lax appearance. However, you do not have to settle for a look that does not feel like you. Sculptra is an FDA-approved dermal filler to restore lost volume by stimulating your body’s natural collagen production. Explore the benefits of this treatment option during a consultation with our team in the Chicago area at aFresh® Med Spa & Plastic Surgery in Glenview, IL!
What Is Sculptra?
Sculptra® is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment option to reduce frustrating effects of volume loss. This FDA-approved dermal filler is composed of poly-L-lactic acid, or PLLA, which is a powerful substance that can stimulate your body’s collagen production. When injected, this filler is gradually absorbed by your body for a fuller, smoother appearance.
Sculptra can be a safe and effective treatment for concerns like:
- Chin wrinkles
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Smile lines
Sculptra treats concerns on a deeper level by directly encouraging collagen production in the dermis. This may help create results that last longer than those created with other fillers.
What Could I Expect from a Procedure?
Sculptra is an injectable treatment option administered during outpatient treatment sessions in the comfort of our Chicago area location. While there is little to no pain associated with treatment, an anesthetic may be available for your additional comfort. The length of treatment will vary for each treatment area and the severity of the concern, but sessions are relatively short, and there is no set downtime associated with a session.
As the PLLA in Sculptra stimulates collagen production, enjoying results may take some time. However, results may last for up to two years! Results will vary for each person and concern, and it is important to have realistic goals for treatment. A series of treatments may be necessary to achieve and maintain the best results.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you are frustrated with the effects of the aging process or other lifestyle factors, Sculptra may be a good non-surgical treatment option for you! It can be safe and effective for most healthy adults. However, because of the unique composition of this injectable, this dermal filler creates results that may last longer than others but take longer to enjoy.
A consultation with our team in the Chicago area is the best method to ensure this is the best treatment option for you and your goals.
