Youthful skin starts within!
Sculptra® Aesthetic works delicately and progressively over time for a more youthful-looking appearance. Collagen stimulators such as Sculptra Aesthetic are used to reduce facial wrinkles and increase facial volume by helping to restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin. Results appear gradually over the treatment regime and it requires a series of injections over the course of a few months and can last up to two years.
As a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, Sculptra Aesthetic is different than hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. It works with your body within the deep dermis, rather than topically, to help revitalize collagen production and help rejuvenate your skin’s internal 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 is intended for use in individuals with a healthy immune system.
Each patient’s case is unique and a customized procedure plan is determined during a complimentary consultation with our doctor. The nature of Sculptra requires some preparation prior to the procedure so an appointment will be scheduled after a consultation.
After injections, most patients feel comfortable returning immediately to work and their daily routines. The most common side effects associated with Sculptra include redness, discomfort, bleeding, bruising and bumps under the skin, and occur at the site of injection. Any noticeable side effects are usually gone in 1-14 days. If irritation or soreness persists you should consult our office.
