Looking Older Than You Are May Have Little to Do With Wrinkles
Sculptra Aesthetic is a dermal filler offering a non-surgical method to restore volume to facial areas that are most affected by loss of collagen as we age, particularly under the eyes or the cheeks. We lose bone density and collagen as we age, resulting in looser skin. Injected like other fillers, Sculptra both creates volume and stimulates collagen production, giving you a gradual and natural facial volume increase.*
The long-lasting effects of Sculptra can lessen the need for re-injection. This saves you both time and money compared with some other dermal fillers in the long run.
What is Sculptra Aesthetic?
Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable dermal filler. It helps gradually replace lost collagen. Collagen is the most common protein in the body and is used to form a framework to support cell and tissue. *
Sculptra helps the body build collagen over time to replace the collagen that has been lost due to agin. It is long lasting treatment, not a quick-fix, since it stimulates the body to produce collagen rather than replacing lost collagen with another material. Sculptra is the first facial injectable that will give you enhanced results over time by replacing lost collagen and giving you a natural looking appearance.*
The Effects of Sculptra Aesthetic Typically Last More Than Two Years
In most cases, the youthful look of facial restoration from Sculptra Aesthetic lasts more than 2 years. Although some individuals prefer a more temporary correction of facial imperfections, others find the long lasting effects to be desirable.*
Topical numbing cream (BLT) may be used to maximize your comfort during the procedure. However, most patients do not require this. Most patients report little pain when Sculptra Aesthetic is administered.*
Sculptra is Different from Other Dermal Fillers
All dermal fillers restore lost volume to facial features. Sculptra is a slow and steady alternative rather than an “instant fix”. It is made with biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid. This is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments administered by our expert injectors.
The number of injection appointments and the number of injections per appointment vary from person to person, depending on how much collagen has been lost. On average, three injection appointments are needed over a period of a few months.
