What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is an injectable used to fight wrinkles and sagging skin by stimulating the skin's collagen production to help restore the cheeky plumpness of healthy skin.
Is Sculptra a filler?
Sculptra is simply a collagen stimulator. Sculptra is composed of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible synthetic material that stimulates new collagen production within the deep dermis.
How does Sculptra work?
Sculptra boosts new collagen production by
Stimulating low-level inflammation in the deeper layers of skin, which spurs new collagen production for up to 24 months. This new collagen firms the skin, creating volume rejuvenation, increased skin thickness, and an overall improvement in texture. You may notice immediate results, but it can take a few months to see the full results of your treatment.
Which areas of the face can benefit from Sculptra?
Sculptra can correct the hollows of the temples. It can also give volume to the cheeks in various regions. Marionette lines and deep nasolabial folds can also be treated with this type of injectable that has been shown to significantly improve the volume in those areas.
A Radiesse treatment refers to a dermal filler that plumps and fills up the skin. Unlike hyaluronic gels, Radiesse is not a gel, but a particulate stimulant. Radiesse is made up of tiny, microscopic particles of calcium hydroxyapatite dissolved in a suspension. These little particles act as a “biological stimulant” for your body to make collagen around the particles, and this collagen plumps up and smooths wrinkles.
The procedure is ideal for those who experience deflation and sagging in the facial area. By providing collagen and structural volume to the sunken regions of the space, a Radiesse treatment restores the skin’s elasticity, smootheswrinkle lines, and instills a glowing, youthful appearance.
