If you are interested in combating the signs of aging and are looking into cosmetic injectables at the Lasky Skin Center, you may want to consider the advantages of certain injections, such as Sculptra®. Dr. Mark Rubin and his team in Beverly Hills, CA, educate patients on how dermal fillers, collagen stimulators, and neuromodulators work at reducing the signs of aging and restoring one’s youthful appearance.
What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is an injectable filler used to gradually replace lost collagen, which gives structure to the skin. The loss of collagen can occur due to normal aging process or other factors such as sun exposure and smoking. Sculptra® works by stimulating your body’s own natural collagen production to help restore structural volume lost due to the aging process.
Sculptra® is made of poly-L-lactic acid, which is a synthetic substance that is similar to a naturally occurring amino acid. Poly-L-lactic acid has been used for several years in dissolvable stitches and other medical devices. When injected into the deep layers of your skin, it helps stimulate your body’s own collagen production.
Why choose Sculptra® injections?
Sculptra® is an excellent choice for patients who want to achieve subtle, long-lasting results. Sculptra® works gradually over time, so you will not see immediate results after your treatment. However, with each passing week, you will see an increasingly youthful appearance as your own collagen production is stimulated. The results of Sculptra® last longer than other injectable treatments, such as dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid.
Is getting Sculptra® injections painful?
Sculptra® injections are not painful. There might be some minor discomfort during the injection process, but this is typically minimal and well-tolerated by our patients. We educate patients on what to expect when undergoing injections in our office.
