Aging can make you feel self-conscious. You may not appreciate what it does to your skin and overall appearance. If you want to get back your youthful-looking skin, then our Sculptra treatments at The Mack Cosmetic Center in Tampa, FL might be what you need.
Does Sculptra Make You Look Younger?
Is the way your skin looks making you feel far older than you really are? Aging results in a lot of changes to the health and texture of your skin. You may find that it’s sagging more, or that wrinkles are forming where there weren’t any before.
If you’re looking for an effective way to get back youthful-looking skin, Sculptra can help. When you receive this dermal filler, you’ll be able to tighten any loose skin, helping your face look younger, smoother, and wrinkle-free. This FDA-approved injectable could be exactly what you need if you’re not happy with the way aging has changed your skin.
Why Does Our Skin Change?
To understand the ways that this dermal filler works, you need to understand why your skin might change over time. Starting in your late 20s or early 30s, you may begin to notice more wrinkles on your face. This is because your body loses certain levels of chemicals like collagen as you get older.
Collagen is an important protein for maintaining the integrity and firmness of your skin. That means that as you age, your skin is less able to smooth back out after making facial expressions, and the creases that form become permanent.
What Is Sculptra?
This is a dermal filler that was originally designed for HIV patients who were experiencing volume loss in their faces. It was first approved for this use in 1999, and in 2014 it was approved by the FDA to treat other cosmetic concerns like wrinkling and sagging.
This treatment acts as a safe and non-invasive way to maintain a healthy, full, and youthful appearance. It provides more fullness to areas that have been affected by volume loss which helps your skin look smoother and wrinkle-free.
How Does It Work?
The main ingredient in this dermal filler is called poly-L-lactic acid, shortened to PLLA. When you receive this treatment, your doctor or technician will use a thin needle to apply it to the areas you’d like to target. The PLLA will stimulate your skin’s production of collagen.
This collagen will help your skin stay firm and elastic, and provide you with a safe way to maintain a more youthful appearance.
Where Can You Use It?
One of the great things about this treatment is that you can use it to target a range of areas on your face. If you’re looking to fix any of the following concerns, then this treatment could be what you’re looking for.
One very common type of wrinkle that you may find on your face as you get older is nasolabial folds. These folds are also called laugh lines or smile lines. They’re the wrinkles that form in between your nose and mouth and are often the result of a combined loss of volume and repeated facial movements.
These wrinkles can age your appearance a lot, and you might not appreciate that. If you’d like an effective way to reduce the appearance of these wrinkles, then using this dermal filler to stimulate collagen production can help.
As your skin loses collagen, gravity tends to take a firmer hold on it. This will result in the formation of jowls, or loose, sagging skin around your jawline. While no wrinkle is really welcome on your face, jowls especially can make you feel self-conscious.
If you’ve noticed the formation of jowls on your face and want an effective way to treat them, then this treatment is for you. The collagen will firm the skin in the area, tightening and lifting it for smoother, firmer skin.
As your skin loses volume, you’ll probably notice your cheeks becoming hollower. This is because you lose a significant amount of volume in this area as you age. Losing this volume can result in your appearance looking older, which is something that you might not appreciate.
When you receive this treatment, you’ll be able to fill in your cheek area. This will help them look much plumper and rounder. This, in turn, will help your face look overall younger.
Aging causes a loss of volume all over your face. While one of the main places that this is noticeable is in your cheeks, if you want a generally younger-looking face there are other areas you can’t neglect to target. One place where you’ll likely see considerable volume loss is around your temples. Losing fullness in this area will age your appearance, and the hollowness could even make you look sickly.
This treatment provides a highly effective way to manage these concerns. You’ll add more volume into your temples which will help you look much younger and healthier.
Another common type of wrinkle that you may see as you get older is marionette lines. So named because they resemble a marionette’s mouth, these are the lines that form from the outer corners of your mouth and run down toward your chin.
If you don’t like the way that these lines make your face look, then getting this treatment can help reduce their appearance or even eliminate them.
The Benefits of Sculptra
Does this treatment sound like it could be the one you’re looking for? If you’re still not completely sold on this dermal filler, then here are just a handful of the many benefits you can expect to get from your treatment.
There are lots of anti-aging treatments out there to choose from if you want to look and feel younger. One thing you might be considering is a surgical procedure. While these procedures do indeed provide highly effective results, you might not feel like you’re ready for something so invasive.
If you’d prefer to not have to deal with a surgical procedure and the lengthy recovery time that comes with them, then you should consider getting this dermal filler. All that’s required to perform the treatment is a very fine and precise needle. Because it’s non-invasive, there is also essentially no downtime needed post-treatment.
It Looks Natural
Worried about getting a cosmetic treatment that isn’t going to look natural? Many people avoid getting treatments that could help boost their self-esteem because they’re concerned about results that will make them look fake or give their face a plasticky appearance.
If this is something that concerns you, then you don’t need to be worried when you receive this filler. Because the treatment simply stimulates a natural process in your body to work more efficiently, the results will look natural too. When you visit our team of professionals, we’ll make sure you walk away with the subtle results you want from treatment.
One reason why you may be hesitating to receive a particular anti-aging treatment is that you’re worried about safety. There are plenty of options available on the market, and many of them will provide long-lasting, effective results. But that said, they may not be safe for everyone.
This treatment stimulates the production of collagen, a natural process that your body performs. The product’s formula is designed to be safe while also providing you with results that you’re going to love. As long as you visit a clean and safe clinic like ours, you’ll know you’re in good hands.
When it comes to getting any treatment, making sure that you’re getting results that are going to last is important. While there are many different treatments out there, not all of them will last as long as you might want them to.
Sculptra provides you with a youthful appearance that will last a long time. After just a few weeks post-treatment, you’ll see the full results of the injections, and these results will begin to be noticeable as soon as you leave our clinic. You can expect your results to last for up to 2 years.
