Sculptra New Orleans
What Is Sculptra® Aesthetic?
Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen — an underlying cause of facial aging — for results that can last more than two years.*
It addresses an underlying cause of facial aging, not just the symptoms. It’s used to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds), commonly called “smile lines”. As well as in the lines framing your mouth, also known as “marionette lines” or “laugh lines”.
Why should you choose Sculptra Aesthetic?
Not all treatments or injectables are created the same. Some target different areas of the face, and, more importantly, produce different effects.
Traditional collagen creams purport to deliver collagen that is absorbed by the skin. However, collagen molecules are too large to penetrate the dermis. So, in actuality, most of these treatments include vitamins and hold moisture, making them suitable moisturizers that can briefly improve skin’s appearance.
Collagen dietary supplements are meant to facilitate the production of collagen within the body. However, collagen is a protein that, when ingested, is broken down by the digestive system. Results for these types of treatments are inconclusive.
Toxins work by temporarily weakening muscles, typically in the forehead, to minimize frown lines. Results appear within a couple days and can last up to a couple months. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Pelias to learn more.
