In 2004, Sculptra was used as volume filler for sunken cheeks among HIV patients. However, because of its astonishing results, the procedure is secretly performed by dermatologists as another alternative to dermal fillers like Botox to rejuvenate lost volume of the face and removes wrinkles due to aging. It was only in 2010 that FDA approved Sculptra procedure legal for cosmetic purposes.

A complete Sculptra procedure requires three sessions with intervals of three to six weeks each session. Each session uses 2 vials which cost from $2000 to $2500 and takes about an hour to complete. The procedure injects Sculptra in the area of the skin where volume is needed. Within the time interval, Sculptra encourages collagen production in the sunken area of the skin. Therefore, the skin thickens, becomes fuller, and stretches serrations and deep lines which makes it an effective wrinkle removal procedure. Sculptra procedure lasts about 24 months than that of Juvederm facial filler which only last about 9 months. Once the procedure is completed in a series of three sessions, reinjection should be performed for a more lasting result.

Even though Sculptra is less invasive than any dermal injection procedure, people prone to keloids and hypertropic scarring should be informed before undergoing the procedure. Sculptra encourages collagen production where it might interfere with the risks associated with certain types of people with scarring problems due to overproduction of collagen during healing of the wound. Another thing to remember before undergoing an Sculptra procedure is that skin underneath the eyes and lips should not be applied because the muscles in these areas constantly moves and may end up with uneven skin volume.

Sculptra is an effective anti-aging procedure, less invasive and a cheaper alternative than facelift surgeries. It removes wrinkles while it adds youthfulness and a pleasing radiant look. It is another way to boost your confidence and stand out among the crowd. Forget about your age, forget the numbers. What matters most is how good looking you are. From there, life moves on and it becomes more enjoyable because in this world, beauty matters.
