At Silk, A Medical Spa, we offer Encino, CA area patients ways to address aging skin and appearance. The face is one of the first areas to show unwanted changes such as skin laxity and volume loss. With the use of cosmetic injectables, most men and women are able to combat these imperfections and achieve a more youthful look. This includes the use of an injectable known as Sculptra.
What is Sculptra?
Injectables are a popular choice for many patients who are interested in addressing an aged appearance but do not want to undergo plastic surgeries. Sculptra is a specific injectables that is formulated with poly-L lactic acid. This sets it apart from other dermal fillers which are formulated with hyaluronic acid. Sculptra adds long-lasting volume where it is needed, making it the perfect injectable for significant volume loss in the cheeks.
How does Sculptra work?
Sculptra works best when injected into the mid-face to plump and volumize the area for an improved appearance. It can also be utilized in the nasolabial folds that are located around the nose and mouth. What is amazing about Sculptra is that the poly-L lactic acid helps in stimulating collagen formation, adding lasting volume. This works differently than dermal fillers which add volume with hyaluronic acid and is naturally absorbed over several months. This makes it a more temporary solution that is better used for specific fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face that need immediate improvement.
Who is a candidate for Sculptra injections?
During an initial consultation appointment with the doctors at Silk, A Medical Spa, patients are evaluated to determine if they are suitable for this or other cosmetic injectables to achieve a youthful look without surgical interventions.
