Are you looking for something that will take years off your skin? Do you want a treatment that provides lasting results you can trust? If so, you’ve probably debated whether a facelift is the next best option. But before you make any big decisions, what if we told you that there was a revolutionary product that could help you achieve your skincare goals without going under the knife?
Sculptra®, also known as Sculptra Aesthetic, is a unique treatment that can add volume, diminish the signs of aging, and provide stunning, long-lasting results. It’s basically a facelift in a bottle, but better! Yet, if you’re still unsure whether Sculptra is the right choice for you, we’ve outlined a few reasons that might change your mind:
Sculptra is a Safe, Minimally Invasive Treatment
Just like with other injectable treatments, the procedure for Sculptra is simple, safe, and non-surgical. The process involves injecting Sculptra deep into the skin, where its main ingredient, poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), integrates into the facial tissue. From there, Sculptra will replenish collagen production, a completely natural process that helps promote stronger, more supple skin. The FDA approved the advanced skincare science behind Sculptra in 2009, making it a trusted choice by injectable specialists nationwide.
Facelifts, on the other hand, require invasive surgery. Patients must go under anesthesia as the procedure involves making incisions, removing fat or excess skin, and tightening underlying tissue or muscle. Facelifts come with various potential risks, such as scarring and infection, so it’s essential to research before deciding whether this is a safe treatment choice for you.
Sculptra Provides Natural Looking, Long-Lasting Results
One of the best benefits of Sculptra is that it allows your skin to rejuvenate its natural structure on its own, unlike traditional injectables. Rebuilding collagen strands takes time, so you’ll gradually transition to flawless skin over a few months. But once you’ve completed all your Sculptra treatments, your results will be seamless and last one to two years!
While the results of a facelift are also long-lasting, the transformation can be quite drastic. The reconstructed skin can sometimes appear too tight or stretched, giving an unnatural or “pulled” appearance. This isn’t the case for everyone, but if you’re worried about people noticing telltale signs of an invasive treatment, you will probably want something other than a facelift.
Sculptra Requires Minimal Downtime
Most people can return to their regular routine after a Sculptra treatment. Aside from a few post-care instructions, Sculptra does not require much maintenance or downtime. You may experience light bruising, swelling, or redness around the injection site, but these side effects go away after about a week.
In addition to a 3 to 6 hour facelift procedure, it requires at least two weeks of downtime post-treatment. During this time, you must follow strict post-care instructions and avoid any strenuous activity. And if you want more treatments, you’ll have to wait anywhere from 1 to 6 months before receiving injectables.
