Aging is inevitable, but there are treatments that can restore your youth, regardless of your numerical age. If you want to address the signs of aging at their root cause, we have just the treatment that can stimulate the body’s healing properties to rejuvenate your skin. At MD Age Management in Winter Park, FL, we want to help you look and feel your best. This is why we are proud to offer Sculptra, a cosmetic injectable that is more than a dermal filler, it’s a collagen stimulator.
How Long Does Sculptra Last in the Cheeks?
Many people want to address sagging and drooping skin that results from volume loss below the surface of the skin, especially in the cheeks. We can resolve this issue with Sculptra. Once we treat your cheeks, you will see an immediate improvement and over time, you will notice increased volume in the area. Your results will last up to two full years with optimal treatment.
What Is Sculptra?
The majority of the dermal fillers on the beauty market are called HA fillers because they are hyaluronic acid-based. There is another group of dermal fillers called collagen-stimulating fillers and they work a little differently. Not only do they restore volume beneath the skin, but in doing so, they stimulate collagen production so that the signs of aging aren’t masked, they’re treated at their root.
Sculptra qualifies as a collagen-stimulating injectable and will address your concerns while stimulating your body’s collagen production for long-lasting results. Not only is this dermal filler effective, but it’s FDA-approved to treat the signs of aging in a unique way.
How Does It Work?
The main ingredient in this cosmetic injectable is poly-L-lactic acid and its works by stimulating the body’s regenerative abilities. It restores volume deep below the surface of the skin to correct lines, wrinkles, and hollowness that form due to volume loss. Over time, the body produces more collagen in the treatment areas and as skin volume increases, problematic skin conditions fade.
What Does It Treat?
This dermal filler can be used to treat the signs of aging that appear in different areas of the face. If you have aging concerns all over your face, chances are, Sculptra can effectively treat them. It is most often used to correct and improve:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Loose skin that results from the aging process
- Hollow areas that result from volume loss in the cheeks and temples
- Volume loss below the eyes
- Crow’s feet
- Jowls or pre-jowl folds
- Chin wrinkles
How Long Does It Take To Notice Results?
Most patients notice a change in their problem areas within two to three months of their initial treatment. This injectable delivers some immediate skin-plumping results, but the real results develop gradually over time. Collagen production takes time, but once your results appear, they will be drastic and hard to miss.
How Long Do Results Last?
Once you notice your final results, you will enjoy them for up to two full years after your initial treatment. The total length that your results will last depends on your skin condition at the time of treatment, your age, how quickly your body produces collagen, and how well you respond to these injections.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The total number of treatments necessary to achieve optimal results varies among patients. Different patients have different skin concerns, but we generally recommend anywhere from two to three initial treatments with several weeks between each. Once you undergo your first treatment, we will monitor your results to determine how many total treatments you will need to reach all of your goals.
Can I Combine It With Other Treatments?
Sculptra injections can be combined with other treatments. This treatment will improve the appearance of your skin, but you still want to carry out your daily skincare routine to make your results look that much better. Scheduling other anti-aging treatments can also build on your results and help you get the most beautiful skin possible.
Many patients choose to combine this treatment with hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers for more immediate results. It can also be combined with laser treatments which help address multiple skin concerns at once, as well as regular facials and chemical peels, which will keep your skin healthy and exfoliated from month to month.
Am I a Candidate?
This dermal filler can be used to improve the skin and the overall appearance of patients with all different skin types and tones. During your initial consultation, we will review your health history and analyze your problem areas to determine if this cosmetic injectable is right for you. You may be a candidate for treatment if you want to use this treatment to:
- Improve the appearance of your skin
- Tighten loose skin
- Smooth your skin
- Address and correct fine lines and wrinkles
- Correct volume loss
