FDA approved Sculptra Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen. It works to correct shallow to deep facial lines that appear with age by replacing lost collagen to provide a more refined, youthful appearance. Sculptra is FDA approved and gives you subtle results over a longer period of time so that you can maintain a more natural looking appearance. On average, a series of three injection sessions are needed over a period of a few months to produce noticeable results, which emerge subtly and can last up to two years.
Sculptra is a collagen stimulator that is injected into the dermis or subcutaneous layer, filling in spaces where collagen has been lost. Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic acid. It gradually and subtly corrects wrinkles and fine lines so it appears natural. Sculptra achieves excellent results adding volume to all parts of the face.
During your Sculptra treatment, you will be given a series of injections through an ultra-fine needle in the desired area. A topical numbing cream is administered for optimal comfort. Results are natural looking and appear gradually over a few weeks time. Sculptra can last two years or more because it causes the body to stimulate its own collagen. The number of injections and the number of injection sessions vary from person to person.
Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Sculptra helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost to aging.1-3 Sculptra Aesthetic is intended for use in people with healthy immune systems as a one-time treatment regimen of up to four injection sessions that are scheduled about three weeks apart.
