Fillers have long been used to lift, plump, and fill various areas of the face and body with beautiful results. The upside is often the instant gratification while the downside is the need for frequent and repetitive treatments to maintain the desired appearance. Fortunately, Sculptra provides long term results with fewer follow ups!
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is an injectable collagen that can be used in many areas of the face and body. At Coco Med Spa in St. Pete, we use it as an anti aging and youth promoting treatment to treat volume loss under the skin. It also can be used to treat laxity and sagging due to a loss of elasticity in the skin.
How Does it Work?
Sculptra injections stimulate your natural collagen growth under the skin. Therefore, with the appropriate amount of initial treatments, you will find that your skin will continue to renew and rejuvenate itself through its own collagen production with very infrequent treatments as compared to a typical filler treatment that dissolves quickly with no change to the structure of the skin. Consider hyaluronic fillers “renting” and Sculptra “buying” the investment is worth the wait and the results last much longer.
Is Sculptra Right For Me?
Sculptra tends to be best for those who aren’t looking for instant gratification and don’t mind waiting for long term results. Additionally, if you prefer a natural, less detectable result without augmentation, Sculptra is a great option as it is simply promoting your own collagen growth. At Coco Med Spa, we believe in taking a global approach to the face through full facial balancing rather than treating just one area with one product. Based on individual consultation, Sculptra may be determined as the best fit for a sagging jawline while another filler is administered in another area to complement the Sculptra service. (This is just an example, individual results and needs may vary.) Sculptra works very well as a preventative treatment, you don’t need to wait for the aging process to be advanced to start. It is always best to listen to the advice of an experienced injector when choosing the services and treatments that are right for you.
