Sculptra 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. Sculptra is used to correct shallow to deep wrinkles and folds on the face. Administered with the appropriate injection technique from a trained specialist, Sculptra Aesthetic is clinically approved for: Deep folds between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds), also called “smile lines” framing the mouth (marionette lines) and chin wrinkles
What does it feel like?
Sculptra is injected under the skin with a minimally invasive needle. The treatment itself lasts about 30 minutes. However, to avoid any pain during the treatment we apply topical numbing to the site where the injection will take place about 15 minutes before.
How does it work?
Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, It works with your body within the deep dermis, rather than topically, to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume. As the Sculptra PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production. Rebuilt collagen strands begin gradually helping to restore facial volume4 and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds.
When will I see the results?
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.
