A loss of volume in the face is the number one indicator that a person is getting older. It causes you to have wrinkles and lines as well as sagging skin. Sculptra can help San Diego residents to get back some of their youth and fight the aging process. Sculptra is a long-lasting anti-aging treatment that is helping many individuals in our area to look and feel their best.

Sculptra is an injectable that encourages the body to create more collagen. As this collagen is created, a person is going to notice that they have more volume in the area where the product was injected. This means that there will be fewer lines and wrinkles. It means that there will be more lift and volume. And a person will notice that they get back some of their youthful facial contours.

How long can you expect your treatment to last? This is something that is important to consider when you start comparing all of the different cosmetic treatments that are available, especially when it comes to dermal fillers. Most individuals who use Sculptra can expect that the treatment will last about two years. However, this is not a treatment that is going to completely stop the aging process. So you may need some touch-up treatments in the future, or you may need to combine these treatments with others to get the best results.

Many wonder if this is a treatment that is going to replace BOTOX injections. It is important for our San Diego clients to understand that these products work in different ways. BOTOX is going to treat the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. Sculptra is going to help produce more collagen in the areas that are injected, so it will add lift and volume. What we have seen is that when a person uses Sculptra, they do not necessarily need as much BOTOX in order to get the best results.

Many have found that when they use BOTOX and Sculptra together, they are able to achieve some of the benefits that come from having a facelift. Of course, they are able to get these amazing results without going through surgery.

We invite San Diego residents to schedule a consultation at Torrey Pines Dermatology & Laser Center. One of our experienced specialists is going to closely examine your skin and ask you questions about your overall health. They will listen closely as they ask you about your specific goals. If you would like to improve your cheeks, jawline, and forehead, Sculptra may be the best option for you. We have found that it can help you to restore your entire face to a much more youthful appearance. It will be injected in just the right areas to help you get some of your youth back.

Since this is a treatment that stimulates collagen production, you do not have to worry about dealing with negative reactions. You can get right back to work and your normal routine right after the treatment is done. Please contact Torrey Pines Dermatology & Laser Center in La Jolla to learn more about Sculptra and the amazing anti-aging benefits that can provide!
