Sculptra aesthetic is a unique dermal filler made of poly-L-lactic acid. It works differently from other fillers by giving subtle results over time by replacing lost collagen to give a natural-looking appearance. Most patients require an average of three injection sessions over a few months and results can last more than two years.
Sculptra Aesthetic gradually replaces lost collagen
Collagen is a key structural component that keeps skin youthful looking and smooth. As you age, your body’s collagen production decreases, and you may begin to see wrinkles. Sculptra Aesthetic works to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds, as it replaces lost collagen, which can help provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance.
Sculptra Aesthetic works within the deep dermis
Within the deep dermis, your skin’s structure is reinforced as Sculptra Aesthetic helps to replace lost collagen. This reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness of your shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that have been depleted over time. Sculptra Aesthetic is different because it gradually and subtly corrects these facial wrinkles.
Sculptra Aesthetic is suitable for:
- Deep folds between the nose and the mouth (nasolabial folds) also called smile lines
- The lines framing your mouth (marionette lines)
- Chin wrinkles
The most common side effects after initial treatment include injection site swelling, tenderness, redness, pain, bruising, bleeding, itching and lumps. After treatment the area is massaged for 5 minutes, 5 times a day for 5 days to minimize any risk of lumps.
