As you grow older, your skin loses collagen. It typically starts in your twenties, and the loss of collagen results in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Facial creams are not enough to reverse the signs of aging, but Chatham Plastic Surgery in Savannah, GA, has solutions to help its clients achieve a more youthful and natural-looking appearance.
What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is a dermal filler approved by the FDA in 2004. It is commonly used to treat lipoatrophy, also known as facial volume loss. Your facial skin loses volume as collagen levels decline. The injectable is similar to other dermal fillers, but with one crucial difference.
Instead of filling in fine lines and helping to smooth out wrinkles, Sculptra® stimulates natural collagen production in your skin. The results look more natural and typically last for two years or longer.
What Does Sculptra® Treat?
The bio-stimulate triggers the collagen matrix in your skin. It’s what gives you face volume. Using your body’s foundation to stimulate collagen production, Sculptra® can treat a variety of problem areas. Volume loss in the cheeks, sub-cheeks, temples, and mid-face is improved. The injectable can also help minimize the appearance of nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
Sculptra can even add volume to sagging buttocks. Schedule a consultation at Chatham Plastic Surgery to learn more.
Am I a Good Candidate for Sculptra®?
Almost everyone is a good candidate for Sculptra®. The non-surgical procedure is performed in-office and does not require any downtime. Clients may experience soreness and redness at the injection sites, but it typically dissipates in a few days.
Women and men who want to look younger without undergoing surgery are good candidates for Sculptra®. Dr. Pearl will explain the procedure, along with any potential risks, during your consultation.
