Sculptra Aesthetic is a long lasting volumizing filler that works by stimulating your own body’s production of collagen resulting in an increase in volume. The increase of facial volume restores the youthful contours of the face.
Sculptra is made of micro-particles of a biodegradable and biocompatible (does not harm the body) material called poly-L-lactic acid. Poly-L-lactic acid is used in many medical applications such as pins, plates, and various soft tissue implants. Poly-L-lactic acid is most notably recognized as what dissolvable stitches are made of. After it is injected, the body responds to the poly-L-lactic acid particles by surrounding them with collagen and encapsulating them.
Sculptra is used in areas where the fat pads of the face once were but have since dissipated and along the boney structures that have shrunk due to the aging process. Sculptra is used in areas such as the nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines (folds extending from the corners of the mouth to the chin), hollows below the cheekbones, to augment the cheekbones or jawline, and in the temples. Sculptra is not recommended to be used in the lips or near the eyes.
Unlike traditional fillers that take effect immediately, Sculptra works slowly and subtly over time. Sculptra is injected over several treatment sessions spaced approximately three to six weeks apart, building upon the previous injections until the desired result is reached. Most individuals require approximately three to four injection sessions. Your injection specialist can help you to determine how many sessions and how many vials of Sculptra may be necessary for you to reach your aesthetic goals.
Because our bodies build collagen slowly, it takes time to see the results. Results from your Sculptra sessions may bee seen several weeks later, and with subsequent sessions your results will improve even more. Sculptra provides a natural result lasting more than 2 years.
