Seize the unique benefits of long-lasting wrinkle treatment with Sculptra® Aesthetic
Our board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Hope Mitchell, has in her decades of experience developed a subspecialty interest in cosmetic injectables, including dermal fillers like Sculptra® Aesthetic. While there are more than 150 filler products on the market today, Sculptra® presents many unique benefits for patients in Perrysburg, Fremont, and northwest Ohio, to soften lines and wrinkles without invasive surgical intervention.
The power of Sculptra® at Mitchell Dermatology
Dermal or soft tissue fillers are made from a variety of different ingredients. Some of the most popular include those formulated with hyaluronic acid. You know HA-based fillers by trade names like Juvéderm® and Restylane®. Sculptra® is derived from poly-L-lactic acid and has been in medical applications for decades, for instance, in dissolvable stitches. So, it is a clinically proven safe material.
While Sculptra® is administered much the same way as other fillers, using precision techniques and ultra-fine needles, there are notable differences. First, you won’t see immediate results. But the results that are achieved are worth the short wait. Second, these differences can be attributed to Sculptra’s status as a “collagen stimulator.” Sculptra® does not merely add volume to fill in folds and to plump up sunken areas. It triggers a process in which more firming collagen proteins are produced. Since this process takes time, results are revealed gradually, usually over a few months and within three sessions. Due to these unique features, Sculptra® is a long-lasting filler. Results can last for two years or longer.
Is Sculptra® the best option for you?
The loss of collagen occurs due to the natural aging process and lifestyle factors such as UV exposure, lax (saggy) skin, wrinkles, and a leathery texture that makes lines look worse. Since Sculptra® works within the dermal layer of the skin to restore lost collagen, it may be used to:
- Improve the appearance of smile lines or nasolabial folds around the mouth and nose
- Soften marionette lines at the sides of the mouth
- Eliminate acquired chin wrinkles
