Goes to the source of facial aging
Sculptra Aesthetic targets the underlying causes of the signs of facial aging.It can give you noticeable results that emerge subtly and can last for up to2 years.* It begins to work within the deep dermis, where your skin’s structureis reinforced as Sculptra Aesthetic helps to replace lost collagen. This reinforcedcollagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look offullness of your shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that have depletedover time. The result? Sculptra Aesthetic is different because it gradually andsubtly corrects these facial wrinkles and folds. This can provide a refined, moreyouthful looking appearance that can last up to 2 years.*
Is biocompatible and biodegradable
Sculptra Aesthetic is made from a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid,which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body as it works to replace lostcollagen. Poly-L-lactic acid has been used for decades in dissolvable stitchesand as a facial injectable since 1999 in over 30 countries.
Who is a good candidate for Sculptra® Aesthetic?
As you age, your skin may become thinner and flatter as fat and collagen become depleted, which gradually changes your appearance. Sculptra was designed to counteract this process by correcting the telltale signs of collagen breakdown beneath the skin. Sculptra corrects related conditions such as:
- Recessed cheeks
- Nasal labial folds
- Smile lines
- Jaw line laxity
Are there possible side effects?
Swelling, bruising, redness, lumps, bumps or granuloma formation can occur after Sculptra® treatment. Side effects often resolve without treatment, but if this is a concern for you, please discuss this with Dr. Weston during your consultation.
