Our patients in the Baton Rouge area who are getting older and developing wrinkles are prime candidates for a skin rejuvenation treatment called Sculptra®. It offers real results without the need for surgery that can lead to complications and significant downtime.
A wide range of injectables are now available in Baton Rouge to increase facial volume and smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. However, not every treatment and injectable work the same way.
What is Sculptra®?
This is a type of liquid that we inject into your skin to enhance facial volume, leading to a softer, more youthful look. It helps to trigger your own collagen formation as it disappears into your skin. When performed properly, a Sculptra® treatment does not lead to the puffy appearance that is common when too much dermal filler product is used. Sculptra® is safe and effective for the treatment of various conditions.
The product contains something called polylactic acid, a type of synthetic lactic acid. Lactic acid is produced by your muscles when you exercise vigorously. The polylactic acid we are injecting contains no human DNA or animal products. Your own body will gradually absorb it over time.
Is Sculptra® Safe?
The treatment received full FDA approval in 2009 for cosmetic treatments. Before that, it was used in Europe for over a decade and is also approved for use in Europe, Canada, and over 20 other countries. It is now available right here in Baton Rouge!
Sculptra® is a collagen stimulator that contains an injectable polylactic acid that your body gradually absorbs and replaces with collagen. This mechanism of action helps to reduce your facial wrinkles by restoring your skin’s underlying structure.
Will Sculptra® Work for You?
If you find yourself getting older and developing lines and wrinkles, Sculptra® may be right for you. You should be in good general health and free from any major skin problems or infections.
