Sculptra is becoming an increasingly popular method for decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in Santa Monica. At Skin by Lovely, we offer this safe and effective treatment that actually builds collagen into specific trouble spots on your face.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is a permanent filler made up of poly-L-lactic acid that is injected into wrinkles in order to give the face a fuller and smoother look. It does this by increasing the overall volume and thickness of the skin and only requires three to six treatments at Skin by Lovely Medspa in Santa Monica.
The most common treatment areas are the nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines, and the area around the eyes. It can be used to increase your skin’s elasticity, which declines with age as well as rapid weight loss.
This treatment, popular in Santa Monica, typically yields longer lasting results than many other dermal fillers.
Pain is uncommon, but mild swelling may occur after the procedure. Ice packs and gentle facial massage can help to alleviate any discomfort. It is best to avoid sun exposure immediately after the procedure as well.
