Sculptra® is an injectable solution
Restores and corrects the signs of facial fat loss by replacing lost volume. Sculptra® provides an increase in skin thickness, helping to create a more natural facial appearance in those with facial lipoatrophy (loss of fat beneath the skin). It provides a gradual and significant increase in facial volume which results in improved appearance of folds and sunken areas.
Sculptra® is composed of poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic material. Poly-L-lactic acid is a biocompatible (does not harm the body), biodegradable (able to be broken down by the body) material that has been widely used for many years in surgical procedures. The effects are long-lasting. They were shown in clinical study to last up to 2 years after the first treatment session. Sculptra® is not made from human or animal sources and does not require a skin test.
The results from Sculptra® are not immediate; Sculptra® provides a gradual increase in skin thickness. During your first treatment visit, it may appear that Sculptra® worked immediately because of swelling from the injections and the water used to dilute Sculptra®. In a few days, when the swelling goes down and the water is absorbed by your body, you may look as you did before your treatment. After treatment, your physician will see you again in a few weeks to decide if additional injections are needed. Touch-up treatments may be needed to maintain the desired effects.
Collagen is a key structural component that keeps skin youthful looking and smooth.
As you age, your body’s collagen production decreases, and you may begin to see wrinkles. Sculptra Aesthetic works to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds,* as it replaces lost collagen, which can help provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance.
Sculptra Aesthetic works to replace lost collagen in a series of treatments administered by a Sculptra Aesthetic trained physician. On average, three injection sessions are needed over a period of a few months. The number of injection sessions and the number of injections per session vary from person to person.
Sculptra Aesthetic works within the deep dermis
Within the deep dermis, your skin’s structure is reinforced as Sculptra Aesthetic helps to replace lost collagen. This reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness of your shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds* that has been depleted over time. The result? Sculptra Aesthetic is different because it gradually and subtly corrects these facial wrinkles. This can provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance that can last more than two years.**
