Injectables provide rejuvenating effects in different ways – dermal fillers add volume to targeted facial areas, while BOTOX® Cosmetic weakens overactive facial muscles that lead to lines and wrinkles. An alternative to these options, Sculptra® Aesthetic, actually targets the cause of many facial wrinkles by enhancing and reinforcing the deeper layers of skin by replacing lost collagen. Achieving this exceptionally natural-looking effect can take a little longer to manifest than other injectable alternatives. The good news is that as time goes by, the results from your Sculptra® Aesthetic actually continue to improve as the underlying layers of skin receive an increasing amount of support and your natural collagen is replenished.
While the results from BOTOX® Cosmetic and many dermal fillers typically last between three and six months, the results from Sculptra® Aesthetic can last about two years. Using a series of about three treatments, you can watch the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and creases gradually disappear. If you are looking for a nonsurgical method of facial rejuvenation, Sculptra® Aesthetic is a great alternative to BOTOX® Cosmetic and traditional dermal fillers that can give you younger-looking skin and long-lasting results.
