Youthful Skin Starts Within
Sculptra® Aesthetic works subtly and gradually over time for a more youthful-looking appearance. Sculptra Aesthetic helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost to aging.
A Subtle Approach to Anti-Aging
Sculptra is a facial volumizer designed to stimulate collagen, a key structural component that keeps skin smooth and youthful looking. Just as wrinkles and skin folds don’t appear overnight, injections of Sculptra replace lost collagen over time, gradually delivering subtle results that can last for more than two years.*
80% of patients were still satisfied with their treatment results 25 months after their last injection.*
FDA-approved Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that’s been used by physicians for decades. Unlike the old collagen injections were comprised of bovine material, Sculptra does not require an allergy test prior to injection. “It’s totally safe, and there’s no need to test for allergic reactions before injecting Sculptra,” said Dr. Timothy Jochen, a Board Certified Dermatologist who ranks among the top five facial filler injectors in the nation. “Actually, poly-L-lactic acid has been used in dissolvable sutures for more than 20 years.”
Sculptra stimulates collagen
Typically, a full treatment of Sculptra involves three to five injection sessions spread over a few months. Injected into the deep dermis, Sculptra stimulates natural collagen and reinforces skin’s structure. The resulting reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness to both shallow and deep facial wrinkles and folds.* And since Sculptra is biodegradable, the body has a natural pathway to break it down and eliminate it while leaving natural collagen in its place. Sculptra is recommended for use in the nasolabial folds and wrinkles. It is not injected in the lips or around the eyes.
Side effects are minimal. Patients may experience a little tenderness, redness and some swelling around the site of the injection, but these effects generally subside within a matter of days.
For most individuals, however, Sculptra is a safe and subtle approach to not only looking younger but looking healthier too. No one will know but you as Sculptra gradually volumizes your face, providing optimal correction and a more natural look with staying power. Instead of mere months, Sculptra Aesthetic is the only FDA-approved collagen stimulator shown to last two years or more following a full treatment course.*
