There are many dermal fillers on the market, serving a variety of services. Some are better at taking on certain cosmetic problems. It can be tricky to decide which one is right for you. As an experienced provider of dermal fillers in Princeton, NJ, Dr. Joseph Guarino of DermaCosmedica discusses the benefits of Sculptra® Aesthetic. Read more to decide if you think it’s right for you.
What is Sculptra® Aesthetic?
Sculptra® Aesthetic is an injectable, like other dermal fillers. It’s FDA-approved as an injectable collagen replacement for those with aging skin. It helps restore the volume to your face that diminishes as we age. It also helps to restore a protein called poly-L-lactic and can spark your body’s natural collagen reproduction system over time.
What are the Benefits of Sculptra® Aesthetic?
One of the biggest benefits of choosing this dermal filler over others is how long it lasts. The effects of Sculptra® Aesthetic can last for up to two years. Many other dermal fillers and injectables last around six months on average. It can also be used for both men and women to get the results they’re looking for.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is unique in that it penetrates the skin deeply and takes on collagen loss at the structural level. It’s the first dermal filler that’s FDA-approved that can boost both volume and elasticity in your skin by taking on the body’s natural collagen production process. It helps stimulate something that your body does naturally.
The Sculptra® Aesthetic Process
Before any cosmetic procedure, Dr. Guarino will schedule a consultation with you. In it, he’ll talk to you about the cosmetic goals you’re aspiring towards, the issues that you want to fix, and your past and present medical history. While injectables are suitable for most patients, Sculptra® Aesthetic may not be the best option for anyone that has a compromised immune system. Luckily, we have other options for dermal fillers in Princeton, NJ.
If Dr. Guarino determines that Sculptra® Aesthetic is an ideal treatment option for you, he’ll schedule an appointment for your injections. The number of injections needed can be different for everyone. Dr. Guarino will create a personalized treatment plan that’s specific to your needs. Many patients get the results they’re looking for with 4-5 vials. Sculptra® Aesthetic is meant to be a one-time treatment.
The most common side effects are redness and tenderness around your injection site or sites. Patients can also experience bruising or swelling in the area. These side effects should dissipate after a few days. If you have further side effects, please call us or your regular doctor.
