If you are affected by a sunken or hollow appearance in the cheeks, temples, or the area just in front of your ears, Sculptra® Aesthetic may be the best option for your enhancement goals. This innovative injectable filler can also fill in deep lines and wrinkles along the face in order to revolumize the aging a face. One of the benefits of Sculptra® Aesthetic is its reputation for long-lasting results. Since Sculptra® Aesthetic is designed to stimulate your skin’s natural collagen, the effects can continue to improve long after treatment.
What is Sculptra® Aesthetic?
As we age, not only is our skin becoming thinner and we are losing collagen, but the fat, bones, and muscles in our face begin to thin too. Sculptra® Aesthetic is primarily used for adding volume in hollowed-out areas of the face such as the cheeks, temples, jawline, chin, and the area in front of the ears and restoring youthful contours of the face. Sculptra® Aesthetic works to stimulate the body’s own collagen, thereby creating results that can last two years and beyond in many cases.
What is the Sculptra® Aesthetic Procedure?
Sculptra® Aesthetic is composed of poly-L-lactic acid, a substance that promotes collagen growth. The treatment does not require allergy testing. One of our board-certified dermatologists will inject Sculptra® Aesthetic with a very fine needle into the areas targeted for treatment. A local anesthetic can be used to numb the areas for the most comfortable procedure possible.
The entire Sculptra® Aesthetic procedure typically takes about 20 minutes to complete. A series of three or four treatment sessions may be necessary to attain optimal results. Most patients are able to resume normal daily routines right after treatment. There will likely be some mild bruising and swelling in the treatment areas after the procedure; however, this is temporary and should fade within a few days.
What Results Can I Expect from Sculptra® Aesthetic?
Although you will likely see some of the effects of Sculptra® Aesthetic after your first treatment, the full results will not be immediately apparent. The treatment is designed to prompt continued improvement over time as the collagen replenishes the skin. During the first few months after the procedure, you should notice the results get better and better.
