Sculptra® Aesthetic is the only FDA-approved poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) facial injectable treatment that helps stimulate the skin’s own natural collagen production. It works gradually to restore the skin’s inner structure for a more youthful appearance.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is intended for use in people with healthy immune systems as part of a treatment regimen of up to 4 sessions.
WHAT IS COLLAGEN’S ROLE IN AGING?
As we age, we lose collagen, which acts as the skin’s support structure, and helps maintain its shape. In fact, 70% of our skin is composed of collagen, and collagen loss causes the skin to lose its elasticity and moisture. Sculptra® Aesthetic helps treat the underlying cause of facial aging — the loss of collagen. In doing so, it subtly and gradually adds volume that lifts the soft tissues and plumps skin from within.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
• Restores Facial Volume and Provides Support to the skin to improve the look of smile lines (called nasolabial folds), marionette lines, pre-auricular wrinkles (the vertical wrinkles in front of the ears), radial cheek folds (vertical wrinkles on the lower cheek) and chin wrinkles.
• Provides Gradual and Natural–Looking Results that become visible over a period of a few months1,2,3
• Long-Lasting—Lasts more than two years
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Once injected Sculptra® Aesthetic begins working with your body deep within the dermis layer of skin to help stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production over time, helping to reinforce skin’s inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost due to aging.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
On average, a series of three treatment sessions over the course of a few months may be needed. The number of injections at each session will vary, depending on the degree of correction needed and the treatment plan determined by you and your specialist.
WHAT IS SCULPTRA® AESTHETIC MADE OF?
Sculptra® Aesthetic is made from poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biodegradable substance that has been proven safe and has been used in medical products, including dissolvable sutures, for more than 30 years. Once injected, it begins working deep within the skin to help stimulate collagen production, reinforcing the skin's inner structure and restoring its volume; creating a framework that helps restore facial volume.
HOW LONG WILL SCULPTRA® AESTHETIC LAST?
Sculptra® Aesthetic works subtly and gradually over time for results that can last can last more than 2 years. In the major clinical study of Sculptra Aesthetic, patients were still showing improvement 25 months after the last injection. The study ended at 25 months.
HOW CAN I GET THE MOST OUT OF MY TREATMENT?
Don't be disappointed if you don't see immediate results. A few days after treatment, you may look as you did before treatment. This is normal and temporary. Sculptra works to gradually help replace lost collagen. Visible results appear within the first few treatment sessions.
Pricing for Sculptra: moderate correction ranges $1600 to $2400 per session and typically a minimum of 2 sessions for best results. NOTE: As Sculptra is mixed / prepared 24 hours prior to a patient's appointment, a NON-REFUNDABLE $650 deposit is required to book the appointment.
