Smooth out lines and restore facial volume
As you grow older, your body begins to slow its production of collagen, resulting in the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved facial injectable made with poly-L-lactic acid which is absorbed naturally by the body in order to give you a fuller, younger-looking face.
Sculptra is a minimally invasive injection procedure requiring no incisions or lasers. While other injectables work by weakening facial muscles or simply filling in empty space to reduce lines and wrinkles, Sculptra stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen giving your face a more natural, youthful look. Because each injection builds on the last to encourage collagen growth the effects occur in a gradual, progressive manner; this carries the added perks of concealing the fact that you have had any cosmetic work done and making the end results longer lasting.
Candidates for Sculptra are those who experience signs of aging in the lower face such as:
- Nasolabial folds– the folds between the nose and the mouth also known as smile lines
- Marionette lines– the lines framing your mouth
- Chin wrinkles
Prior to treatment with Sculptra, the skin will be cleansed and prepped. A topical anesthetic can also be applied to the skin if patients are worried about discomfort. A small amount of Sculptra will then be placed below the skin in the treatment areas, ensuring an even distribution of the formula. This process can take about 20 minutes to complete.
There is no required downtime after treatment with Sculptra. Over the course of a few months, clients have an average of three treatments. After each session, the area around the injection site should be lightly massaged for 5 minutes a few times a day for the following couple of days. Sculptra helps replace lost facial volume and smooth out wrinkles by reinforcing the foundation of your skin’s structure in the deep dermis. As Sculptra replaces collagen in your face you will begin to have a fresher, more invigorated look. Sculptra is different from other injectables as it works to correct the root cause of wrinkles taking effect gradually and producing subtle results that can last for more than two years.
