Sculptra® Aesthetic Offers Subtle, Long-lasting Enhancement
Sculptra® Aesthetic is quickly becoming a preferred method to combat wrinkles and facial lines. Unlike other popular injectable treatments, Sculptra® Aesthetic does not produce results that are immediately noticeable. Instead, it works gradually over time, achieving natural-looking results that can last up to two years or more. With Sculptra® Aesthetic, people will admire your younger-looking appearance, without being able to pinpoint why you look more refreshed. To learn more about Sculptra® Aesthetic and its many benefits, please contact our Frisco, TX, practice today and make an appointment with Dr. Ken Smart.
The Sculptra® Aesthetic Difference
Most injectable anti-aging treatments on the market today are designed to work immediately following one set of injections. The Sculptra® Aesthetic treatment process differs because it typically includes a series of appointments over several months. Because Sculptra® Aesthetic targets the underlying causes of facial lines and wrinkles gradually over time, patients can enjoy subtle improvements to their appearance that do not give away their treatment.
How Does Sculptra® Aesthetic Work?
Collagen is a key structural protein in our skin, providing softness and suppleness. As we age, collagen begins to break down and its production also slows. This leads to the development of facial lines, wrinkles, sagging, and other signs of aging. Sculptra® Aesthetic addresses these concerns by replacing lost collagen and stimulating new collagen production. Made from poly-L-lactic acid, a fully biocompatible and biodegradable material, Sculptra® Aesthetic allows the body to correct the effects of collagen loss, and does so safely. In fact, the body can harmlessly absorb poly-L-lactic acid over time, and the material breaks down very slowly. In this way, the restoration of collagen structure, and the smooth, youthful skin it provides, can last for years.
Benefits & Applications
Sculptra® Aesthetic can correct a number aging concerns:
- Deep folds between the nose and mouth, known as smile lines or nasolabial folds
- Lines extending downwards from the sides of the mouth, also known as marionette lines
- Wrinkles on the chin
Dr. Smart often meets patients who are interested in tightening and toning their skin, but are not ready for a treatment as comprehensive as a facelift. For these patients, Dr. Smart can choose the right MedSpa therapy to soften wrinkles and facial lines. Sculptra® Aesthetic is a great option for most healthy patients, and can be performed as a stand-alone therapy or combined with other non-surgical anti-aging treatments, such as an IPL photofacial or laser skin rejuvenation.
Experience You Can Trust
Properly administering Sculptra® Aesthetic requires a high degree of skill since the material is injected into deeper skin layers than other injectable treatments. Expert knowledge of the face's intricate anatomy is essential for the absolute best results. When you choose an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Smart, you are taking an important step towards minimizing the risk of unfavorable side effects, and ensuring you enjoy satisfying, natural-looking results.
