Sculptra corrects signs of aging, such as sagging skin. It is an injectable inserted into the inner layer of the skin whose purpose is to replace collagen that has been lost as a result of the natural aging process. Further, it also stimulates the further growth of collagen, which, over time, adds volume to the face, giving a youthful look by filling in wrinkles as well as improving skin tone, laxity and the removal of sagginess. It has been on the market since 1999 and it a safe procedure, approved by Health Canada. It is used all over the world.
Sculptra is composed of a biodegradable material called poly-L-lactic acid. In this way, Sculptra treats the causes of aging when it comes to the face, going beyond merely treating the symptoms of it as collagen moisturizers and supplements do. In fact, these only really have temporary results. Some results have been entirely inconclusive.
What Can Sculptra Do For Me?
Sculptra specifically treats both deep and shallow wrinkles, including smile lines, marionette lines and chin wrinkles. One of the benefits of Sculptra is the fact that the results are very natural. In other words, it does not appear as if you’ve had anything done to your face. Even better, most patients do not have any down time.
How Long Do the Results Last?
The results will become evident in a couple of days and the results can last a couple of months. If you opt to have up to three treatments every four to six weeks (which is usually required), results can even last a minimum of two years.
Is Sculptra Recommended for Diabetic Patients?
The good news is that diabetic patients can use Sculptra as long as the patient’s diabetes is controlled. The treatment was originally used to treat HIV patients. However, your medical history will certainly be taken into consideration by your doctor before proceeding.
Individuals who should not consider Sculptra are those with an allergy to its ingredients as well as those with a current skin infection or who are suffering from inflammation on the area of your face that will be receiving treatment. Those who have had keloid formation or hypertrophic scarring in the past should also avoid Sculptra.
Keep in mind that there are a range of other anti-aging treatments that are deemed safe for diabetics.
