Are you looking to gradually rejuvenate your skin, soften lines and give your skin the youthful volume you once had? At Pender Medi Spa, we offer Sculptra® for natural-looking, long-lasting rejuvenation.
What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is an injectable treatment that is uniquely formulated from polylactide. Produced from natural ingredients, this biodegradable, biocompatible substance helps replace lost collagen, the protein in the skin responsible for structure and strength.
Administered in a series of about three injections over a period of time, Sculptra® targets the signs of aging at the source, below the surface of the skin and into the deep dermis. The process of producing new collagen improves lines, wrinkles and folds in the skin over several weeks or months, creating a look that is natural, never exaggerated, and long lasting.
Sculptra® can be used to provide overall facial rejuvenation and skin tone, or to correct specific lines or areas of volume loss.
Am I a Good Candidate for Sculptra®?
Men and women who are looking to improve visible signs of aging on their face naturally and without looking as though they have “had work done” may be good candidates for Sculptra®. As Sculptra® works gradually, patients who are seeking more immediate or dramatic results may be advised to seek alternative methods of skin rejuvenation.
Individuals who are healthy and have no medical or skin contraindications may also be candidates for Sculptra® treatment. During your consultation with our medical team, your health, medical history and cosmetic goals will be evaluated in order to determine if Sculptra® is right for you.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Polylactide is used by physicians worldwide in dissolvable sutures and medical devices for many years and is easily absorbed and processed by the body. Slight bruising, swelling and redness is common at the injection sites. During your consultation, a treatment plan will be tailored to your individual cosmetic goals and skin condition.
