Sculptra® Aesthetic is a unique, FDA-approved injectable product which targets the underlying causes of the signs of facial aging. Following injection into the deep layer of the skin, Sculptra® Aesthetic begins to reinforce the skin’s structure by stimulating the regeneration of collagen lost during the aging process. Sculptra® Aesthetic is primarily compounded of poly-L-lactic acid (or PLLA), a totally synthetic, biocompatible material containing no human or animal-derived substances. In fact, PLLA is fully biodegradeable in the human body and has been in widespread use for more that 25 years in dissolvable stitches and medical implants.
In contrast to other traditional injectable fillers, Sculptra® Aesthetic gradually and subtly corrects shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds, creating a refined, natural-looking appearance lasting at least 2 years. Although the number of treatment sessions, length of each treatment, and amount of Sculptra® Aesthetic needed differs for each individual, an average of 2 – 3 treatment sessions lasting 15 – 30 minutes each, over a 3 month period is generally required. These treatments are performed in an office setting without any formal anesthesia. Patients are able to immediately return to their daily activities without any “down time”.
So if you have been looking for a simple, natural, long-lasting facial rejuvenation solution, Sculptra® Aesthetic may be your answer.
