Giving you a more natural-looking appearance, without giving you away. A full treatment of Sculptra Aesthetic, an average of three injection sessions over a few months, can last up to two years, so you have more time to see how sensational and subtle it can be. Welcome to the new age of anti-age!
As we age, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles become a common concern for most of us. Over time, our facial skin can thin and take on a depressed and hollow appearance. For years, people have tried a variety of procedures to correct sunken cheeks, hollow eyes, indentations, and other signs of facial skin fat loss. Until now, there have been few FDA-approved treatments specifically for this condition. Sculptra® injections have been used throughout Europe since 1999 to improve the appearance of aging skin folds, indented chin surfaces, hollowed cheeks and sunken eyes. Sculptra® was recently introduced in the United States and has been rapidly climbing in popularity.
Sculptra® is a safe, synthetic, and biocompatible (doesn’t harm the body) material that is injected below the surface of the skin in the area of fat loss. It provides a gradual and significant increase in skin thickness, improving the appearance of folds and sunken areas. Sculptra is composed of a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). PLLA has been widely used for many years in dissolvable stitches, soft tissue implants, and other types of implants. Sculptra® adds volume to hollow and depressed areas on the face, including around the eyes and cheeks, by increasing the thickness of the skin. It also fills facial lines and wrinkles giving your face a beautiful refreshed look. Treatments most successfully preformed with Sculptra® include the thickening of the skin of the hands and the face.
The procedure typically takes between 15 and 30 minutes and they can return home, or to work, within minutes of the procedure. It is most often performed with the use of a topical numbing cream. The Sculptra® filler is then injected beneath the surface of the skin, under the dermis and subcutis layer. Then, as its name implies, the area is re-contoured or molded to the desired result. Results of the Sculptra® injections gradually become evident over the course of a few weeks, and become optimized within several months. Sometimes more than one treatment session is required to achieve the desired effect, which occurs gradually and could last up to two years. Depending on the severity of fat loss and depth of the wrinkles, you may need a series of treatments and touch-up visits to obtain the best results. During your visit, our physicians will decide the appropriate number of treatment sessions and the amount of Sculptra® you will need.
