Loss of volume happens during the natural aging process, especially in the mid-face, as the cheeks tend to become flat and hollow. To improve the contours of the face and stimulate collagen production, Pura Vida Body & Mind Spa uses Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid-based injectable dermal filler. This proven treatment provides longer-lasting volume in the mid-face. In addition to improving the contour of the mid-face, Sculptra can reduce the look of shallow to deep lines and wrinkles, including the nasolabial folds (sometimes called smile or laugh lines) that start at the edges of the nose down to the outer corners of the lips. With its unique gel formula approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Sculptra promotes the natural collagen production in your body, meaning your results will last much longer than comparable brands. Schedule an appointment at Pura Vida in Fleming Island, FL, located near Jacksonville, to hear about the benefits of this injectable treatment. Sculptra can also be done in the chest to increase collagen production to decrease lines and wrinkles AND used in the glutes to improve appearance of cellulite and contour shape.
