While some dermal fillers are meant for immediate topical results that smooth lines and wrinkles, a more subtle, lasting treatment deeper in the skin is Sculptra Aesthetics injections. Sculptra is an injectable poly-L-lactic acid that helps the facial skin restore collagen and skin structure to address shallow to deep facial lines and wrinkles. Dr. Rousso offers Sculptra treatments at our office in NYC, giving our patients options to discretely restore a more youthful appearance.
As the skin loses collagen, an essential building block of youthful skin, lines and wrinkles can form. Sculptra injections are used to target these areas, helping create more volume and elasticity to the skin. Treatments are spaced over a few months, helping the skin repair and revitalize at the deeper dermis layer. The injectable poly-L-lactic acid stimulates collagen and works to restore the skin to a more youthful appearance. Sculptra lasts for a longer period of time than dermal fillers that work on a more superficial area of the skin.
Advantages of Sculptra Aesthetics
Every dermal filler has pros and cons. While Sculptra may not give the immediate results of some other filler injections, it does have its advantages. It works at a deeper level in the skin to improve the underlying structure and collagen levels, and the results are more natural and lasting. The skin improves its tone and smoothness over a few months, gradually becoming more youthful as the lines and wrinkles smooth away. The results can last up to two years after the first set of treatments, requiring fewer treatments to sustain a more youthful appearance.
