Sculptra® Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen. It helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles, and folds that appear with aging by replacing lost collagen.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is a facial injectable that works gradually in a series of treatments — on average, three injection sessions over a few months — for a subtle, more youthful looking appearance. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades.
Sculptra® Aesthetic may be used in the following treatment areas:
- Deep folds between the nose and the mouth (nasolabial folds) also called smile lines
- The lines framing your mouth (marionette lines)
- Chin wrinkles
The difference With Sculptra®
Sculptra® Aesthetic replenishes lost volume by stimulating growth of your own natural collagen to treat underlying causes of facial aging. It is the only volumizer scientifically designed to stimulate natural collagen growth that lasts more than two years.
What to Expect
Sculptra® Aesthetic is administered in a series of treatment sessions. On average, three treatment sessions are needed over a few months, but your doctor will tailor the sessions to best suit your skin and your desired outcome. It is important to return for all treatment sessions as instructed by your doctor in order to get the maximum effect from the gradual process of collagen replacement offered by Sculptra® Aesthetic.
