Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen—the most common protein in the body that is used to form a framework to support cell and tissue—for results that can last more than two years.
Why Sculptra Aesthetic?
Sculptra Aesthetic addresses an underlying cause of facial aging, not just the symptoms. We recommend start with a Cosmetic Consultation to see if Sculptra is right for you.
Results appear gradually and can last up to two years. As a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, Sculptra Aesthetic helps restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin to diminish facial wrinkles.
Sculptra Aesthetic works with your body within the deep dermis to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume. As the Sculptra Aesthetic PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production. Rebuilt collagen strands begin gradually helping to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds. Sculptra Aesthetic may stimulate collagen growth which helps to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds over time.
How does Sculptra Aesthetic work?
SLOW AND STEADY STRENGTH – 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 administered by a trained specialist.
The specialist injects treatment within the deep dermis, where strands of collagen support your skin’s structure. Over time, Sculptra Aesthetic helps the body reproduce lost collagen.
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. On average, three injection appointments are needed over a period of a few months.
Not all anti-aging treatments are the same:
- Collagen Creams: Collagen Creams do not fully penetrate the dermis, so most topical treatments are effective as moisturizers that briefly improve the skin’s appearance.
- Collagen Supplements: When ingested, the digestive system breaks down collagen proteins and their effectiveness remains inconclusive.
- Toxins: Toxins temporarily weaken muscles to minimize frown lines in the forehead. Results typically last a couple of months.
- Fillers: Works immediately upon injection to fill in lines, wrinkles and folds.
