What is Sculptra® Aesthetic?
Sculptra® Aesthetic is a FDA-approved injectable that is used as a dermal filler to smooth out wrinkles and folds that accumulate over the years on your face. By helping to gradually replace lost collagen in the face, Sculptra® Aesthetic can correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds. This treatment can help with signs of aging on the face by addressing:
- Smile lines
- Marionette lines
- Chin wrinkles
Because Sculptra® Aesthetic works within the deep dermis and not topically, it promotes your body's natural collagen production to restore your skin's underlying structure and add volume. This creates a fullness to your face that helps smooth the wrinkles and give you a more youthful appearance.
Benefits of Sculptra® Aesthetic
There are many different types of facial fillers and injectables on the market, but Sculptra® Aesthetic offers patients unique benefits that make it a great solution to many who seek facial rejuvenation. The benefits of this treatment include:
- FDA-approved treatment
- Stimulates the body's natural collagen production
- Results that can last up to two years
- Non-surgical option to improve facial augmentation
The Sculptra® Aesthetic Procedure
Sculptra® Aesthetic is a synthetic compound called poly-L-lactic acid. This compound is biodegradable and biocompatible which allows it to be naturally absorbed by the body. As with any procedure, your doctor will discuss your medical history and determine if Sculptra® Aesthetic is right for you. While this compound is generally safe for most individuals, you should talk to your doctor, and not use this product, if you:
- Have any allergies related to the ingredients of Sculptra® Aesthetic
- Have an active skin infection or inflammation
- Have a history of keloid formation
- Are susceptible to hypertrophic scarring
This treatment is intended for those with a healthy immune system. Your doctor will typically administer three injections over the period of up to four months, to allow for proper recover between each injection. During this period, you'll gradually see the results take form as your face builds its natural collagen, giving it more volume and a more youthful appearance. Results can last for up to two years, but individual results may vary.
