Sculptra – the Non-Filler Filler
I don’t know about you, but I’m terrified to get fillers in my face. I have seen them make a person look totally different, and I have seen them make people look freakishly fake. But as I’m getting older the lines around my mouth are becoming more pronounced and I need to do something.
I was flipping through a fashion magazine and I came across an ad for a new filler, Sculptra. What I noticed about this filler is it’s not really a filler, it’s an injectable filler that stimulates collagen growth. Sculptra replaces lost volume by stimulating new collagen production rather than manually filling grooves and wrinkles. So it’s a more natural process that makes the results natural.
Sculptra works to replace lost collagen in a series of treatments administered by a physician. On average, three injection sessions are needed over a period of a few months, but the number of injection sessions and the number of injections per session vary from person to person. The first injection gives subtle results over time, and the results continue to improve with each injection and time. The slow formation of a more youthful look doesn’t “give you away”. The results last up to 2 years.
I have not tried it, but suffice to say, I’m going this route when it’s time (on the horizon).
