Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen – an underlying cause of facial aging – for results that can last up to two years or more. It is used to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, particularly between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds or “smile lines”), framing the mouth (marionette lines), and on the chin (chin wrinkles).
Traditional collagen creams that promise to deliver collagen that is absorbed by the skin just don’t typically work, because collagen molecules are too large to penetrate the dermis. They are great moisturizers, but they can only briefly improve the skin’s appearance. Sculptra Aesthetic is used to stimulate collagen growth which helps to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to the wrinkles and folds over time.
Results appear gradually over the treatment regime, which is typically three injections over the course of three or four months, and can last up to two years.
If you want to appear more youthful-looking, without looking like you’ve “had work done,” Sculptra Aesthetic may be a good choice for you.
Duration: Procedure will take 45 minutes with numbing. Results appear gradually over the treatment regime and can last up to two years
