If you want to achieve long-lasting smoother skin, free from facial wrinkles and deep folds, Sculptra® may be a good alternative for you. Sculptra® is an injectable dermal filler that replaces the depleted collagen in your skin, helping your skin to look firmer and more youthful. What makes Sculptra® a unique and popular product, however, is that the results can last for up to two years.
Collagen is what makes your skin young and elastic—we have it in abundance when we are young, but our bodies produce less and less collagen as we age. You’ve probably heard of it before–collagen is constantly advertised as being an ingredient in firming lotions and creams. However, when Sculptra® is injected into your skin, it results in more natural collagen at the injection site, helping your body to naturally fight the signs of aging.
Unlike many other collagen-enhancing dermal filler injections, Sculptra® involves several injection sessions over the course of several months. On average, desired aesthetic results can be achieved with three injection sessions over a few months. Once the desired look is achieved, Sculptra® results can last for up to two years.
Side effects of receiving Sculptra® injections may include discomfort, redness, bruising, bleeding, itching, and swelling at the injection site. Small lumps under the skin that may be noticeable when pressure is applied to the skin; and larger lumps with or without inflammation or skin discoloration. However, reports of either the small or large lumps are rare and tend to resolve themselves without treatment.
