Sculptra® Aesthetics is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen – an underlying cause of facial aging, for results that can last more than two years. It’s used to correct (shallow to deep) facial wrinkles and folds in areas such as smile lines, marionette lines and chin wrinkles.
As a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, Sculptra® is different from HA dermal fillers. It works with your body within the deep dermis to help stimulate collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume.
Collagen is a protein produced by our cells that supports the skin, keeping it looking younger and giving it firmness and fullness. After the age of 20, our body begins to slowly deplete collagen.
On the day of treatment, your face will appear a little fuller. This fullness will diminish over the next 48 hours, as the liquid is absorbed, leaving the PLLA molecules to start working. Over the next 4-6 weeks, the collagen levels will be stimulated, and the results gradually appearing. Your results will then be reviewed, and another treatment may be recommended to continue your results.
Results of Sculptra® include:
The results are extremely natural, and last an average of 2 years.
