Sculptra injections to treat mild to severe facial wrinkles naturally over time wih collagen production

Sculptra® Aesthetic

Regenerate your youthful skin.

Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable that's used to treat mild to severe facial wrinkles.

 

Unlike other injectables that fill wrinkles, Sculptra Aesthetic is made from a poly-L-lactic acid that stimulates the body's natural production of collagen over time. The treatment typically involves three injection sessions over the course of three to four months, and results can last for up to two years.

What is Sculptra?

Made from poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that stimulates the body's natural production of collagen over time. Sculptra is commonly used to address the underlying cause of aging by correcting mild to severe facial wrinkles.

Unlike traditional collagen stimulators that are used topically and are too large to penetrate the dermis, Sculptra works within the deep dermis to revitalize collagen production. As the PLLA microparticles are absorbed, collagen strands are gradually rebuilt restoring facial volume and softening existing folds and wrinkles.

On average, three injection sessions over a few months are necessary to achieve desired fullness. When we see your for your consultation, we will determine the amount of lost facial volume and how many sessions will be needed.

How Does It Work?

Get lost volume back.

Sculptra Aesthetic is made with biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments. If you want to appear more youthful-looking — without appearing like you’ve had work done — then chances are Sculptra Aesthetic may be a good choice for you.

Over time, Sculptra Aesthetic helps the body reproduce lost collagen. On average, three injection appointments are needed over a period of a few months. 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.

Frequently Asked Questions About Sculptra Aesthetic

Who is Sculptra Aesthetic right for?


- You have smile or marionette folds or lines. - You have chin wrinkles. - You have volume loss associated with aging. - You have temples that are starting to hollow out. - You are starting to develop jowls. - You are willing to wait for results. - You are OK with multiple treatment sessions.




Are Sculptra Aesthetic injections permanent?


No, they are not permanent. Results can last around 2 years. The collagen that has been stimulated can actually last much longer. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle will only further the results.




What's the recovery time from Sculptra Aesthetic injections?


As a minimally invasive procedure, you will not require much, if any, downtime. Many individuals return to work the following day, but if swelling and bruising are a concern, one to three days is typically plenty of time. It is common to receive injections on a Friday, recover over the weekend, and return to work on Monday.




What are the possible side effects or risks of Sculptra Aesthetic treatments?


Bruising, asymmetry, over-correction, under-correction, and infection are possible side effects. Gentle massage can help address some issues. A five-minute massage should be done over the injected areas five times a day for five days. The massages help stimulate blood flow to the injected areas to develop a stronger initial collagen response and provide an even result. After five days, much of the initial volume will disappear as the water and lidocaine of the Sculptra injections are absorbed by the body.
