What Are the Benefits of Sculptra?

Our faces can lose youthful volume as we age and develop lines and wrinkles around the mouth, eyes, and forehead. Sculptra is a minimally-invasive treatment plan that can make you look years younger by filling in facial contours and smoothing the skin. At Dundee Dermatology with locations in Geneva, St. Charles, Huntley, Lake in the Hills, Algonquin, Carpentersville, Elgin, South Elgin, and West Dundee, IL, we specialize in this revolutionary treatment.

What Are the Benefits of Sculptra?

It Can Reduce the Appearance of Wrinkles and Fine Lines

The primary benefit of this treatment is that it can help reduce or eliminate wrinkles and fine lines. This treatment is a hypo-allergenic mixture of hyaluronic acid, which naturally occurs in our body’s skin and tissues. Hyaluronic acid increases facial volume when injected right under the skin and fills in fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment is even effective in treating deep lines, which can add years to your face.

It Can Prompt Collagen Development

Collagen is one of the things that keeps our skin dewy and bouncy. When we’re young, our body produces an excess amount of collagen. Unfortunately, this collagen supply tends to diminish as we age, leaving our skin looking saggy and much more sallow. Sculptra can prompt the body to start producing more collagen, giving skin a radiant, youthful glow.

It Gives You Natural-Looking Results for the Long Run

One of the best aspects of this treatment is the fact that you get natural-looking results in the long run. Although everyone is different, some patients have results that last for up to two years. Talk to our team about what you can reasonably expect. We’re happy to put together a personalized plan to fit your specific needs.

You can maximize the results of your treatment by taking good care of your skin. For example, stay out of direct sunlight whenever possible, and have a healthy self-care routine that includes gentle cleansing and moisturizer. You can also keep your skin looking radiant with a healthy diet and a good exercise routine.

It Gives You More Facial Volume

This treatment tends to give you a younger, fuller face. Sculptra is specifically designed to fill in sallow cheeks naturally, giving patients a smooth, healthy face that is voluminous in all of the right places. Round cheeks and fuller lips are often synonymous with beauty and youth and tend to look more radiant than thinner or more gaunt faces. Increasing your facial volume in the right spots can erase facial dullness and help you look several years younger.

It Is Hypo-Allergenic

This treatment is hypo-allergenic, so there’s minimal risk of an adverse reaction. In addition, since it’s composed of something the body makes naturally, Sculptra can blend in seamlessly with your skin, filling in your wrinkles without looking unnatural or causing any discomfort. This makes it attractive to people who are otherwise wary of injectables or anti-aging treatments.

It Can Smooth Out Skin Texture

In addition to filling in fine lines and wrinkles and giving you a plumper, more youthful face, this treatment can help your skin look more even and healthier. There are several reasons why Sculptra is amazing for improving your skin’s texture. Since it can smooth out existing wrinkles and fine lines, your face will have a more uniform look. If you wear makeup, it will go on smoother and be less likely to cake up in certain areas of the face.

Additionally, this treatment promotes collagen production. Collagen is one of the key building blocks for our skin. It promotes skin cell turnover and helps our skin keep its elasticity. This elasticity is what helps our complexions to look dewy and fresh. The combination of long-lasting wrinkle reduction and collagen promotion make this treatment one of the more effective ways to turn the clock back on aging.

It’s a Minimally Invasive Treatment With Virtually No Downtime

This treatment is minimally invasive, and you can go right back to living your life as soon as you leave the appointment room. Since you don’t have to schedule any time away from work or other obligations, this treatment is exceptionally popular with people who have very busy lives but want to take a little bit of time out for self-care. You can even pop in for a quick treatment on your lunch break or while you’re out running errands.

Generally speaking, these treatments only take about half an hour. Everyone is different, so talk to our team about what you can reasonably expect. We’re happy to put together a treatment plan and sample schedule for you. Our goal is to provide comprehensive, transparent customer service that will make you as comfortable as possible with your treatment plan.
