There are a lot of different choices when it comes to injections, which can make it difficult to decide exactly what you are looking for. When you visit Illume, we can help you decide what is right for you after talking about your specific and unique goals. One option that may come up as a possibility for our certified nurse injectors to suggest is Sculptra.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is an FDA-approved, poly-L-lactic acid collagen stimulator injectable that can help gradually replace list collagen. Collagen is the most common protein in the body and is used to form and support your cells and tissues. As we age, our body loses collagen and that’s when we start seeing more noticeable wrinkles and sagging skin.
What can Sculptra be used for?
Sculptra is known as a facial injection that can help stop the signs of aging. For the face, Sculptra can be injected into a few different areas depending on where your problem issues are. There are three most common lines and wrinkles that Sculptra can be used for.
- Smile Lines, which are between the nose and mouth.
- Marionette Lines, which are the lines framing your mouth. These are also called “laugh lines”.
- Chin Wrinkles, which is the appearance of wrinkles on your chin.
At Illume, we also offer Sculptra Injections for a butt lift. Because Sculptra injects poly-L-lactic acid, it kick-starts your body’s natural collagen production and adds shape to your buttocks over a period of time. After several weeks, you should begin seeing a natural curve shape in your bottom that you didn’t have before. Keep in mind, buttock injections take more time, and most likely more injections to see results.
We also want to mention that currently, Sculptra Injections are only FDA-Approved as facial injections, but Sculptra for the buttocks is considered an off-label use, and many people who undergo the procedure and happy with how they end up!
Benefits of Sculptra
Along with everything we’ve talked about, there are a few other benefits of Sculptra Injections that may help you decide if they are the right choice for you.
- Can Last up to two years
Sculptra Injections have the ability to last up to two years, which means you don’t have to get them redone as often. This can help you save time and money in the long run!
- Addresses the underlying cause of facial aging
Unlike creams or collagen supplements, Sculptra injections can penetrate to the dermis and provide quicker, longer lasting results. They are also known to be more affective than the other options that are available.
- Quicker Results
Like we mentioned above, because Sculptra Injections are addressing the underlying causes of facial aging, the results take less time to show up.
