Rejuvenate aging skin with help from Sculptra aesthetic injections.There is a reason that most cosmetic procedures center on the skin of the face. Every person wears their joys and worries on their faces, and over the years, the experiences of life can etch lines into the skin that start to show age.
SCULPTRA® was approved by the FDA in 2004.
Sculptra is a new approach to treating fine lines and wrinkles. As the skin ages, the proteins that give it structure and elasticity start to become damaged. In healthy skin, collagen and elastin proteins are constantly being renewed. At a certain age, the body becomes unable to keep up as damage occurs, and skin starts to look loose and develop wrinkles.
Other products designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles treat the symptom, not the cause. Sculptra is different. It uses special chemicals to stimulate the regrowth of collagen. This leads to more natural results that last longer because they work with your body to heal the damage displayed in the wrinkles.
When it comes to treating wrinkles around the mouth that are signs of aging, not all treatments are created equal.
The options for treating smile lines and wrinkles in the nasolabial folds and their drawbacks are:
Topical Creams: Numerous topical creams containing collagen are on the market in varying levels of strength. However, collagen has a hard time penetrating the outermost layer of skin, meaning these creams don’t deliver active ingredients where they are needed most. Without other procedures, topical creams are ineffective.
Dietary Supplements: Adding collagen to the diet in the form of bone broth or direct supplementation sounds like a good idea at first. However, the body completely breaks down collagen in the stomach. This means no actual collagen is absorbed. In fact, no studies show that they help with facial wrinkles.
Neurotoxins: Products like Botox and Dysport have traditionally been the best weapons in the arsenal for treating facial lines. The main drawback to these treatments is they don’t stimulate healing in tired skin, and the results only last a few months.
Dermal Fillers: During a filling treatment, special oil is injected into the skin below fine lines. These products fill out the loose skin making it appear taught, but again, they don’t treat the problem. After about a year, the lines will return.
While these treatments have been highly prized for their effectiveness both at home and in clinical settings, they don’t actually treat the underlying cause of wrinkles and aging skin.
Sculptra is different. The active ingredient in Sculptra stimulates the growth of the disappearing collagen. This allows your skin to heal and tighten up using more natural processes that treat the basic problem. With Sculptra, patients can enjoy positive results for up to two years after a few quick visits.
Sculptra is usually done as a series of treatments. One of the things that patients notice is that the benefits aren’t obvious immediately. This is because the body needs time to heal, and Sculptra facilitates the healing. After a few visits, patients start to notice drastic improvements that last longer than any other procedure.
Here are a few simple guidelines to follow after the injection treatment:
The recovery time for a Sculptra treatment is comparable to other injection treatments. Redness, minor swelling, or bleeding can occur around treatment sites that usually subside within a day or two.
If minor irritation occurs, ice packs can be used to reduce inflammation. Wrap ice packs in a towel to avoid direct contact with the skin.
Patients can apply makeup and resume daily activities immediately if no irritation is noted.
Avoid the sun and UV exposure if redness or swelling exists.
Massage the treated areas for five minutes five times per day for five days after treatment. This encourages disbursement of the treatment and stimulates healing.
