Aging is, of course, a natural process. While some people embrace the fine lines and wrinkles that develop on their face, others really have a hard time coping with the fact that they are no longer young. These people thus turn to various medical procedures in order to give their skin back a more youthful appearance.
One such medical procedure is known as Sculptra. Those who are not familiar with Sculptra will first and foremost want to know what it is. This is a dermal filler that is injected into the skin in order to fill out some of those problematic lines and wrinkles. It can also be used to fill out skin that has lost some of its natural fat du to various kinds of illnesses.
Sculptra can be used on the face, but it can be used on the hands as well. Something that many prospective patients will be curious to know is how safe it is, and how long the results will last. Sculptra is considered quite safe, and as such has been approved by the Federal Drug Administration. How long it will last will vary depending on the person, but it has been known to last for up to three years.
This dermal filler is biocompatible, which means that is works well with the body's natural chemistry. The results will become slowly visible as the dermal filler works in conjunction with the body. Several treatment sessions will need to be done in order provide the person with optimal results.
