Get the most out of your injectable cosmetic treatment with long-lasting Sculptra® filler

The Nest Day Spa & Aesthetic Center is proud to be your “home” for trusted, nonsurgical cosmetic procedures that are as safe as they are predictably effective. From our well-appointed medical spa location in Russell, Kentucky, one of our talented and highly skilled professionals may recommend Sculptra®. 

This dermal filler is distinctive from the dozens of other fillers on the market today. It addresses the “root cause” of wrinkles and laxity: collagen loss. By resolving the loss of this firming protein and treating wrinkles at their sources, Sculptra® is uniquely formulated to produce long-term results.

In fact, in a study by Galderma Laboratories (the makers of Sculptra®), participants enjoyed sustained results for up to two years. On average, three treatment sessions scheduled over a span of a few months resulted in dramatic improvements that can last at least that long – up to 24 months. 

Due to how Sculptra® is engineered, results may be visible after just one month. It is also a versatile “anti-aging” treatment in that Sculptra® has achieved noticeable improvement in the appearance of many common signs of aging. These include: 

  • Expression lines, such as “smile” or “marionette” lines in the lower third of the face
  • Deep or severe wrinkling and folds
  • Shallow areas or depressions, for instance, on the chin and cheeks

Many of these age-related concerns go hand in glove. Youthful skin is firm and smooth. Young skin contains plenty of beneficial proteins, such as collagen. As collagen production slows down, over time, the skin may start to sag. Underlying fat loss also causes portions of the face to shift and slide downward. As volume is lost in the cheeks, the mid-face can appear hollow. Folds appear around the nose and mouth. 

Skin that formerly retained its shape after you smiled doesn’t bounce back quickly to its original position. Those aforementioned smile and marionette lines may remain etched on the face, regardless of whether you’re making an expression or not. Sculptra® is formulated from the same type of safe material used in dissolvable stitches, poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). It is designed to be injected in areas such as the nasolabial folds around the nose and mouth and at the corners of the mouth and chin.

Sculptra® may be appropriate for many different types of patients because it effectively treats shallow to deep lines and wrinkles. Sculptra’s effects are gradual due to how the PLLA in it replaces collagen. As collagen is replaced, the structure of your skin is reinforced. Your face appears fuller, and those wrinkles and folds are “filled in.” Side effects are typically temporary and limited to the injection sites.
