What Is Sculptra® Aesthetic?
Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen — an underlying cause of facial aging — for results that can last more than two years.*It’s used to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds.
*Clinical study ended at 25 months.
Sculptra Aesthetic should not be injected into the blood vessels as it may cause vascular occlusion, infarction or embolic phenomena. Sculptra Aesthetic should not be injected into the red area (vermillion) of the lip or in the periorbital area.
Why should you choose Sculptra Aesthetic?
Real results that last
Not all treatments or injectables are created the same. Some target different areas of the face, and, more importantly, produce different effects.
Traditional collagen creams purport to deliver collagen that is absorbed by the skin. However, collagen molecules are too large to penetrate the dermis. So, in actuality, most of these treatments include vitamins and hold moisture, making them suitable moisturizers that can briefly improve skin’s appearance.
Collagen dietary supplements are meant to facilitate the production of collagen within the body. However, collagen is a protein that, when ingested, is broken down by the digestive system. Results for these types of treatments are inconclusive.
Toxins work by temporarily weakening muscles, typically in the forehead, to minimize frown lines. Results appear within a couple days and can last up to a couple months.
SCULPTRA AESTHETIC MAY STIMULATE COLLAGEN GROWTH WHICH HELPS TO RESTORE FACIAL VOLUME AND THE LOOK OF FULLNESS TO WRINKLES AND FOLDS OVER TIME.
Fillers are liquid or gel substances, like hyaluronic acid or bovine or porcine collagen, that diminish lines by pushing up the dermis space beneath wrinkles and creases. Results appear immediately and can last up to several months.
Collagen stimulators are used to diminish facial wrinkles by helping to restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin. Results appear gradually over the treatment regime (typically three injections over the course of three to four months) and can last up to two years.*
As a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, Sculptra Aesthetic is different. It works wwithin the deep dermis, rather than topically, to revitalize collagen production and restore your skin’s inner structure and volume.1-3 As the Sculptra Aesthetic PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they stimulate collagen production. Rebuilt collagen strands gradually restore facial volume4 and to wrinkles and folds.
AS THE SCULPTRA AESTHETIC PLLA MICROPARTICLES ARE ABSORBED, THEY HELP STIMULATE COLLAGEN PRODUCTION.
*Individual results and treatment sessions may vary. Clinical trial ended at 25 months.
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. On average, three injection appointments are needed over a period of a few months. 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.
