Sculptra Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which corrects shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that appear with aging by replacing lost collagen.
The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades in absorbable stitches and as an injectable since 1999. Sculptra Aesthetic is not an overnight miracle. It takes time to work, but is long lasting. Unlike traditional fillers, Sculptra gives you subtle results over time. Replacing lost collagen, Sculptra gives gradual improvement without appearing like you’ve had a cosmetic procedure done. A full treatment of Sculptra Aesthetic, an average of three injection sessions over a few months, can last up to two years. The number of injection sessions and the number of injections per session vary from person to person.
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. 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 and improves your shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds. 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 up to two years.
