From Galderma, the same laboratories that have given us Restylane Lyft and Restylane Silk, comes Sculptra Aesthetic! Unlike most of the other short duration hyaluronic acid fillers in the market, Sculptra is the first FDA approved poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) derma filler and can last up to 2 years! Now available in Miami and Broward at Aromas Medspa.
What Exactly is a Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA)?
Polylactic acids are a non-toxic, biodegradable substance that have been used for decades as a suture material. As a derma filler works particularly well in the mid and lower half of the face. It’s perfect for cheeks augmentation, to fill laughing lines, marionette lines and deep nasolabial folds (the area between your nose and your lips). It’s also perfect to fill deep tempos. Since PLLA derma fillers rely on the skins ability to repair and heal itself, it does not produce immediate results like other derma fillers. Instead, it stimulates your own body's collagen production, so results appear gradually over a period of a few weeks. The effects of PLLA generally become increasingly apparent over time and its effects may last up to 2 years!
Where Can I Apply Sculptra?
Sculptra helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase volume that has been lost to aging. It works gradually to restore a youthful-looking appearance. Since it is applied near the subcutaneous layer, we can apply it anywhere on the body: from your face to your gluteus, and the latest application is for cellulite. However, Sculptra has to be diluted at least 3 days prior to its application, so plan your treatment ahead of time. But don’t worry, you get to relax afterward as there is no downtime with the procedure.
The Sculptra Buttlift
If you have a flat or sagging buttocks and/or always desire more volume then the Sculptra buttlift is for you! Desired results usually require 2-3 treatments, spaced at least 6 weeks apart. As the Sculptra works, you will begin to notice a change to your posterior. The buttocks will appear fuller than before, enhancing your natural curves. Sculptra is the safest and most natural option to increase the size of your buttocks, there is no downtime and no special instructions to follow after the procedure.
Other dermal fillers only address lines, wrinkles, and folds while Scupltra addresses collagen loss and weakened skin structure. Collagen loss weakens your skin’s inner structure, reducing its ability to maintain elasticity and moisture. It’s this weakened inner structure that leads to lines, wrinkles, and folds. Over the course of several sessions (an average of 3 over a few months, spaced with at least 4 weeks apart), Sculptra Aesthetic produces subtle and gradual results that emerge over time for a more natural restoration.
How Can I Prepare? Like with any injectable treatment, you run the risk of temporary bruising and swelling. In order to prevent bruising, eliminate blood thinners like aspirin, NSAIDs, red wine/alcohol, Vitamin E, fish oil, green tea, and herbal supplements for a couples of days before your treatment.
