Sculptra remains a one-of-a-kind injectable product designed to stimulate your own collagen.
Sculptra is not a wrinkle filler and it acts quite differently in the skin tissue. It is a bio activator which you could consider a “self-volumizer”. It works by stimulating the body to produce new collagen at the sites of injection, thereby replacing lost volume and contours to restore a fuller, more youthful appearance.
Dr. Fitzgerald’s Patients Share Their Sculptra Stories
Elaine is a big fan of looking as real to yourself as possible. Elaine felt that looking better, not different, was her goal. “It’s so terrific in that you don’t know quite yourself why you look better.”
A busy attorney and mom, Christine was being told she looked tired. Aware that her appearance affected both how she felt about herself, how she was perceived at work and how she performed. She didn’t want a dramatic change but did want something that would last. I now hear, “Wow, you look good!”
Vivian is passionate about nature. She wanted to stay true to her values and opted for Sculptra to generate her own collagen. “I was amazed. Subtly, my face is lifted.”
So that’s why the introduction of a volumizer such as Sculptra is such an exciting event!
“… volume is what makes you look younger. That’s why the introduction of a volumizer such as Sculptra Aesthetic is such an exciting change in how we can make facial rejuvenation choices. It’s an exciting shift AWAY from surgery to achieve a lifted, more balanced facial appearance.”
Why Volume Replacement is So Effective
Droopy skin? Sagging skin or loose skin? Flattened contours? An older face will show a loss of the fullness of the cheeks, temples, the lips and area around the mouth and will show fat loss under the eyes which creates a hollow effect. Where there used to be light, now there are shadows. By replacing the volume loss, you reverse the creation of shadow and restore the reflection of light and the appearance of youth, energy and vibrance.
This volume replacement fills the skin so that it is lifted; not surgically with scalpel and sutures, but lifted by the formation of your body’s own collagen – collagen that was created in surrounding the microscopic particles that makeup Sculptra. A facelift will remove excess skin, and to some degree, this will lessen the shadow effect, but a facelift will not restore volume. And volume is what makes you look young.
