What is SCULPTRA® AESTHETIC?
Sculptra Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen. It helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles, and folds, that appear with aging by replacing lost collagen.
How does SCULPTRA® AESTHETIC work for wrinkles?
Sculptra Aesthetic works within the deep dermis where your skin’s structure is reinforced as Sculptra Aesthetic helps to replace lost collagen. This reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness of your shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that has been depleted over time.
Are there any side-effects?
Side effects reported include injection site pain, redness, bruising, bleeding, or swelling. Small bumps under the skin that can sometimes be noticeable when pressing on the treated area may also occur. Larger lumps, with or without inflammation, have also been reported. Other side effects may include the delayed development of non-visible, small bumps under the skin sometimes noticeable when pressing on the treated area.
How soon will I see the results?
Sculptra Aesthetic works to target the underlying causes of signs of aging such as collagen loss. During the course of your Sculptra Aesthetic treatments, collagen is replaced. Gradually over time you’ll notice a refined, more youthful-looking appearance.
How long does the effect of a SCULPTRA AESTHETIC treatment last?
Sculptra Aesthetic is the first facial injectable that can give you noticeable results that emerge subtly. It replaces lost collagen to give you a more natural-looking appearance without giving you away. A full treatment of Sculptra Aesthetic – on average, 3 injection sessions over a few months – can last for more than 2 years.
What does the procedure cost?
