Your skin and gravity get along as well as cats and dogs. By making your skin lose elasticity and collagen, both age and the forces of gravity can age you quickly. Luckily, Dr. Thomas F. Crais has a variety of non-invasive treatments to help you get rid of fine lines and wrinkles and restore your smooth complexion. And although facial fillers like Juvederm and Restylane are popular amongst a lot of our patients, there is a different option that you may want to consider: Sculptra. From lasting longer to giving you a more natural look, this article will discuss three unique benefits of Sculptra. Read on to learn more about whether Sculptra is right for you.
It Lasts Longer
By getting three injections over the course of around three to four months, Sculptra lasts a lot longer than its competitors. In fact, unlike other dermal fillers that last only up to one year on average, Sculptra can last up to two years— leaving you with a smoother skin for double the time.
Dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvederm are primarily popular because they temporarily get rid of fine lines and wrinkles across your face and near your mouth almost immediately. Made of ingredients like Hyaluronic acid, these fillers push up the skin from the inside out. However, Sculptra works in a more restorative manner. Rather than pushing the wrinkles out or filling them in, Sculptra restores the deep, underlying surface of the skin through stimulating collagen production. As a poly-L-lactic acid collagen stimulator, Sculptra restores the skin’s volume and inner cell structure— leaving you with visibly smoother skin in just a few months.
It’s More Natural
Sometimes when patients get too many dermal fillers and Botox, they tend to look more plastic than natural. However, because of the science behind Sculptra, you can expect to receive a more subtle and natural look. Although you will see noticeably visible results, they will make you look younger rather than plastic.
