Injectables have been used for many years at dermatology offices to provide patients with a method of turning back the hands of time without the need for invasive plastic surgery. Those who are worried about the loss of volume and maintaining a youthful appearance may want to consider Sculptra®. Alta Vista Dermatology offers Sculptra® and other injectable treatments to those living in Denver, Highlands Ranch, and the surrounding areas of Colorado.
What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is an injectable treatment primarily made up of the main ingredient, poly-L-lactic acid. This is a biocompatible ingredient that not only dramatically improves volume, but also can be easily absorbed by the skin and body over time safely and effectively. As a result, patients can enjoy increased collagen and elastin production, contributing to a long-term improvement in the volume and laxity of the skin. Because this ingredient integrates so easily to the body, patients do not have to worry about developing side effects or other issues due to treatment.
The Sculptra® treatment is performed much like other injectable treatments, involving a number of injections around the face. Although Sculptra® injections are typically tolerable, we offer patients a topical anesthetic if they are concerned about experiencing pain during treatment. Sculptra® injections are usually performed within 30 minutes. In some cases, patients may experience redness or swelling after treatment, but this usually fades on its own within a few hours. There is no downtime after Sculptra® treatments, so you can expect to return to work and other normal activities immediately after your appointment.
What Results Can I Expect from Sculptra®?
Sculptra® does not provide immediate, overnight results. Unlike other dermal fillers which are intended to immediately volumize lines and wrinkles on the face, Sculptra® works by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. These are the elements of the skin that help provide a youthful look and volume. Sculptra® lasts several years, allowing patients to age gracefully and enjoy much longer results.
