Go a Step Deeper, With Sculptra Injections

sculptra fillersWe all need a helping hand to ward off the signs of ageing. As we grow older, wrinkles and fine lines can begin to get the upper hand; features can become gaunt, and skin may look lifeless and saggy. Growing old gracefully is harder than it looks!

Well, not anymore…

Over the past two decades, surgeons have come up with various methods to deal with the signs of ageing. Once, only a full face-lift could bring the skin back to life, and we all know the risks associated with those. Thankfully, Sculptra is now taking the limelight. This revolutionary product is a long-lasting, deep filler which has been specifically developed to fill in hollows and build up lost volume, as well as tackle those lines and wrinkles.

Sculptra is a polyl-L lactic acid, which encourages the body to produce an increased amount of collagen. Collagen is the body’s natural filler, so never fear: there won’t be a Frankenstein theme to your look and Sculptra doesn’t stretch the skin overly tight. The skin simply appears smoother, firmer, and – most importantly – natural.

Sculptra can plump up the cheeks to create a fuller face, and give the appearance of higher cheekbones. It can also be used to fill in lines between the nose and mouth, and even eradicate jowls.

The best thing about Sculptra injections is that they only take 15 minutes; not bad, especially when the results last for around two years. The procedure is also painless, as you’ll receive an anaesthetic cream to numb the skin before it’s treated. The injections themselves are small, and any swelling dies down the next day.

What could be better than returning to normal daily activities straight away? Because there’s no mess and no recovery time with Sculptra, you don’t even need to tell anyone you’ve had it! You’ll notice the effects after four weeks or so, as the body’s boost of collagen begins to take effect. This is also the time you’ll need to wait before consequent treatments, so you can see whether you’re happy with the initial result. The best results come with two to three treatments, but even one should yield discernible results.
