Sculptra Aesthetic works to replace lost collagen in a series of treatments. On average, 3 injection sessions are needed over a period of a few months, to produce noticeable results that emerge subtly and can last more than 2 years.* Photos have not been retouched.
Where can Sculptra™ be used?
Our faces don't so much 'fall' with time. They actually lose volume and deflate. This deflation and volume loss leaves us looking less 3-dimensional than we did when we were younger. Volume restoration brings back the dimensional qualities, improves symmetry and can 'pick up' sagging skin.
Sculptra Aesthetic is used to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds which are treated with the appropriate injection technique. Sculptra Aesthetic is suitable for:
- Deep folds between the nose and the mouth (nasolabial folds) also called smile lines
- The lines framing your mouth (marionette lines)
- Chin wrinkles
Sculptra™ can be used to restore volume to hollow areas of the temples, cheeks, chin and under the eyes, as well as to define the jaw line. It is not recommended for use in and around the lips. Lips and wrinkles are best treated with other products such as Restylaneor Juvederm.
How is Sculptra™ administered?
Each treatment consists of a few injections to the areas to be volumized; temple/cheeks/chin/jaw line. The product is administered with local anesthesia and the discomfort is minimal.
What are the side effects of Sculptra™
As with all other injections there can be temporary swelling and bruising. Otherwise, there is no 'downtime'. Other risks include the transient appearance of palpable, but usually not visible, papules under the skin which resolve spontaneously over a period of weeks to months.
How long does Sculptra™ last?
The lasting effects of Sculptra™ vary from patient to patient, however studies have shown that some Sculptra™ patients have seen results last up to or greater than two years from the first treatment. Periodic touch up treatments will maintain the desired effects.
