What is Sculptra®?

Collagen is one of the most important proteins within the human body. It’s responsible for lots of things, but you may know it as the structural protein that forms connective tissue. In essence, collagen is what keeps your skin plump and tight, preventing it from sagging or wrinkling. As you get older, collagen production dwindles, which is why your skin starts to sag and no longer look as young as it used to. 

The good news is, there are numerous treatments designed to help increase collagen production. One of these is called Sculptra®, and it’s a highly sought after treatment here at Manhattan Aesthetics.

Sculptra® Explained

Sculptra® is an FDA-approved dermal filler that gets injected into the skin. It’s made up of poly-L-lactic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in your body. The purpose of Sculptra® is to help replace the lost collagen within your body, restoring the natural youthfulness of your skin. It will make your skin firmer and less saggy, getting rid of wrinkles, fine lines, and many other signs of aging. 

How Does Sculptra® Work?

As explained above, Sculptra® contains a very important substance called poly-L-lactic acid. This is found within your body, and its main aim is to promote collagen production. By injection this into your body, you will naturally start to produce more collagen. Over time, this extra collagen production will lead to very impressive results. It quite literally helps your skin rewind time and appear younger once more.

How is Sculptra® Used?

Sculptra® is commonly used on your face to treat all of the common signs of aging. It’s extremely effective at dealing with deep lines and wrinkles, ironing out your skin. Many patients get it injected around their noses, mouth, chin, and at the temples. 

However, Manhattan Aesthetics also offers a unique treatment called the Sculptra® Butt Lift. This is a non-surgical alternative to a traditional butt lift, injecting Sculptra® into the fatty tissue above the muscle in your buttocks. By doing this, the stimulation of collagen can tighten the skin and ‘lift’ your saggy butt. A lot of patients undergo this treatment as a natural way of improving their bum, and also to help treat skin texture problems – like cellulite. 

Benefits of Sculptra®

The key benefit of Sculptra® is that it is proven to work. This is because it contains a substance that naturally occurs in the body and is chemically designed to increase collagen production. By making your body produce more collagen proteins in certain areas, you are going to see impressive results. Four treatments are typically needed before you see the best results, but they can last for up to 3 years!

Also, it’s a non-surgical procedure that doesn’t require any allergy testing. You can also return to regular activities straight away, with no downtime required.
