Even if you’re young at heart and full of energy, seeing deep facial wrinkles when you look in the mirror tends to make you feel old. And with most modern wrinkle treatments, the results only hold up for a few months before a follow-up treatment becomes necessary. If you’re looking for an effective treatment for facial wrinkles that provides long-lasting results, Sculptra in New Jersey could be exactly what you need.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is an injectable cosmetic treatment used to increase facial volume and create smoother, more youthful-looking skin. Sculptra also helps the body increase its collagen production, which can significantly improve the skin’s complexion and overall health.
How Does Sculptra Work?
Unlike most injectable wrinkle treatments, Sculptra works by addressing the underlying causes of aging skin. Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid, which works as a collagen stimulator when injected into the body. As the body begins to gradually produce more collagen, the underlying structure of the skin becomes stronger and healthier. This reduces facial lines, folds, and creases and prevents them from forming.
When Sculptra is injected beneath the facial skin, its gel-like consistency allows it to serve as a dermal filler. As a result, natural-looking volume is restored to the skin. Overall, the treatment leaves your face looking smooth, balanced, and youthful.
Where Can Sculptra Be Used?
Sculptra can be used to restore volume and reduce wrinkles in several areas of the face. The treatment is often used to eliminate chin wrinkles, marionette lines, and nasolabial folds.
In some cases, Sculptra is also used to treat other areas of the body, such as the glutes, thighs, and arms. However, these are off-label uses, and the treatment is only FDA-approved to treat the facial skin.
Benefits of Sculptra
Sculptra can provide patients with quite a few significant benefits. The most common benefits of the treatment include:
- Smoother, more youthful-looking facial skin
- Reduced facial lines, folds, and creases
- Increased collagen production
- Improved skin health and complexion
- Increased self-confidence
- Long-lasting results
- Increased facial volume
- More balanced facial appearance
How Long Is the Recovery Time?
Most patients are able to return to their normal routines immediately after undergoing Sculptra treatment. You may need to avoid strenuous physical activity for a couple of days, and Dr. Wise will provide you with detailed instructions to ensure that your skin heals properly.
Am I a Candidate for Sculptra Treatment?
If you’d like to achieve healthier, smoother facial skin, you may be a good candidate for Sculptra in NJ. However, Sculptra is not right for everyone. To be an ideal candidate for the treatment, you should meet these requirements:
- Have facial lines, folds, or creases that you’d like to eliminate
- Have a desire to restore volume to your facial skin
- Be in generally good physical health
- Have realistic expectations for the treatment
- Be free of active infections near the treatment area
- Have no allergies to any Sculptra ingredients
- Be above the age of 18
- Not currently be pregnant or nursing
- Be free of autoimmune problems
Are There Any Side Effects?
Sculptra has been known to cause some side effects in certain patients, all of which are minor and typically subside within a few days. The most common side effects of the treatment include:
- Itching and lumps
- Injection site pain
How Long Will It Take To See Results After Sculptra?
You may start to see the positive effects of Sculptra treatment immediately after the procedure. However, the results typically increase gradually over the following weeks. Although many patients start to notice improvements in their skin after only one treatment, the average Sculptra regimen consists of three sessions taking place over the course of a few months.
Because Sculptra treatment addresses the underlying causes of aging skin, the benefits should continue to be noticeable for quite a while. For some patients, the effects can last as long as two years.
