How Does Sculptra Dermal Filler Work for You?
As our bodies age, our tissue can lose its volume, contributing to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. One of the causes of this volume loss is a loss of collagen.
Collagen creams are marketed with the promise of restoring collagen, but the collagen molecule is too large to penetrate the barrier of your facial tissue. Ingesting collagen supplements orally also fails to deliver collagen to where it is needed to restore your facial tissue volume.
Unlike these other treatments, Sculptra works by stimulating collagen growth, which can help restore the volume of your face and smooth out wrinkles and lines. Your results will appear gradually over the course of your treatment plan, which usually takes about three injections over a period of about three to four months.
The results are much longer lasting than those of most dermal fillers, which last up to two years.
