Patients in CA Discover Sculptra, an Anti-Aging Dermal Filler
Injectable treatments are popular ways to reduce the signs of aging and restore a fresh, youthful appearance. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Amanda Lloyd in Encinitas, CA offers a number of injectables including Sculptra. Sculptra is a dermal filler and is one of Dr. Lloyd’s favorite procedures to conduct.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is unique and differs from other injectables. It is a lattice that is injected into the skin to stimulate your own natural collagen production. Therefore, all of the collagen that is produced to restore your lost volume is your own and is 100% natural.
Uses for Sculptra
Sculptra is most commonly used in the face. However, it does an excellent job at improving the wrinkles on the chest which are most commonly formed by sleeping on your side or from sun damage. Sculptra combined with laser for the chest is one of the best treatments you can do to restore the youth and health of the chest skin.
What to Expect
The downside to using Sculptra is the length of time it takes to see results. Initially, you have some swelling and fullness from the injections. Unfortunately, that fades after a couple days. Patients then wait 6 to 12 months to see results as it takes the body this time to produce the new natural collagen. You will have a “Sculptra moment” where you look in the mirror and go, “Wow! I look good today!” The end result is a very natural, gradual look. Patients do not look overdone.
Sculptra is an excellent treatment for someone who is looking to restore the volume that has been lost due to the aging process and environmental factors such as sun damage. It is probably not ideal for someone who is looking for more immediate results since it takes time to grow the natural collagen. However, it is perfect if you are looking for the 100% natural option that is slow and gradual. This treatment is safe and effective at slowing the aging process while improving the tone and texture of the skin.
