Sculptra® – New Orleans
Over time, you may notice facial skin folds and wrinkles developing, including marionette lines and nasolabial folds. A loss of subcutaneous fat can also occur with age, leading to sunken cheeks and temples. These age-related changes may cause you to look tired or gaunt, even if you feel great.
While you can’t control the aging process, you can take control of these age-related changes. Dermal fillers like Sculptra® make it easy to turn back the clock and restore a smooth, youthful appearance to your face. This FDA-approved injectable can also provide fullness to areas of the face that are lacking in volume.
When age-related changes appear, get the upper hand with Sculptra® for a fresh look that allows you to feel your best.
How Sculptra® Works
While most fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, the active ingredient in Sculptra® is synthetic poly-L-lactic acid. When used in Sculptra® treatments, this synthetic lactic acid replenishes collagen in the injected areas, which smooths out wrinkles and skin folds.
One of the main advantages of Sculptra® is that it works with your body to encourage further rejuvenation. Once injected, Sculptra® works deep within the dermis to help encourage the production of collagen. Collagen proteins are essentially the building blocks of the skin, and they help provide structure and volume. What does this mean for you? With Sculptra® working at deeper levels in the skin, you get ongoing rejuvenation at the source. Over time, this newly produced collagen will continue to support a smooth, plump skin texture.
