Spring is in the air, and the welcomed warmer temps offer a great opportunity to shed a few layers and show a little more skin. If your skin could use a little help in getting spring ready, then boosting your body’s own collagen is a surefire way to do that. Sculptra Louisville is a phenomenal treatment for those who wish to replenish the body’s natural collagen, a skin building block that diminishes with age. Not only is collagen responsible for helping keep your skin looking firm and youthful, but it’s also a major component of your bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and even your hair.
But your body’s natural ability to produce collagen starts to fade as the years go by, beginning even as early as your mid-20s. That’s when the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin start to show. With Sculptra Louisville, you can spring into the new season with beautiful skin that exudes confidence and even enjoy results that last up to two years.
How does Sculptra Louisville work?
Sculptra® is an FDA-approved injectable that gradually activates and replaces lost collagen in the skin. After being injected directly into the area where collagen restoration is desired, Sculptra works to boost collagen production in the weeks and months following treatment. It does so thanks to a biodegradable, biocompatible, synthetic substance called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). The PLLA continues to help produce collagen strands in the body over time, resulting in skin wrinkles being reduced or totally eliminated temporarily. The gradualness of the process is what contributes to natural-looking results.
How many injections with Sculptra Louisville will I need?
Sculptra Louisville is typically administered with a series of about three injections over the course of three to four months. Additional injections may be needed for some patients to achieve the most desired results. The extent of the lost collagen plays a factor in this. After Sculptra Louisville is administered (the whole treatment taking only a few minutes), you’re free to go on with your regular daily activities.
Can collagen creams or supplements produce similar results?
While there are collagen products on the market that can provide some benefits, most are nominal at best. The reason for this is that collagen molecules are just too large to effectively penetrate the dermis. That’s why many collagen creams tend to have only slight impact. On the other hand, dietary supplements have certain limitations as well, primarily because much of the collagen gets broken down in the digestive tract. It’s for these reasons that Sculptra Louisville is the shining star as far as more noticeable, lasting collagen restoration when compared to other methods.
Are there side effects associated with Sculptra Louisville?
As with any medical aesthetic injections, some side effects may occur with Sculptra Louisville. The most common of which include:
- Tenderness at injection site
- Mild bleeding
Though rare, there have been instances of allergic reactions reported with injections of Sculptra. During your private consultation at Vibrant Med Spa, we will go over all the details of this revolutionary treatment to help you determine if it’s the best route to meet your aesthetic goals.
When will I see results from Sculptra injections and how long will they last?
While results from Sculptra Louisville are not instant, that translates to more gradual, natural-looking results. During the course of a few weeks following injections, you’ll start to notice the appearance of wrinkles gradually minimized and your skin’s lost volume restored. It can take up to a few months to see optimal results from treatment. Results will vary from person to person due to factors such as genetics and metabolism, but most people see results that last up to two years – sometimes longer. In fact, 80% of Sculptra Louisville patients reported being pleased with their results two years following treatment!
