Facial Wrinkle Correction and Volume Replacement with Sculptra®Aesthetic
Welcome to the new age of anti-age! Sculptra®Aesthetic is a cosmetic facial injectable that works gradually, resulting in a more natural youthful looking appearance that can last up to two years. It was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on July 29, 2009 as a treatment indicated for the correction of shallow to deep nasolabial folds (smile lines), contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles which are treated with the appropriate injection technique in healthy people. Prior to this Sculptra™ was available in the US for other indications. Sculptra®Aesthetic is a great product to use on the entire face to fill, lift and augment the face for a nice, natural sculpted appearance. Some even say they look as though they have had a natural looking face lift! In a multi-center study patients underwent up to four treatment sessions and maintained their results for 25 months after their last injection. Sculptra®Aesthetic is different from other dermal fillers because it actually stimulates dermal thickening that results in a filling effect that uses your own natural collagen producing capabilities. The results are gradual and you achieve the full effect up to a year after the final injection. Most people require 3-5 treatments about 4-8 weeks apart and as with any injectable filler there is a possibility of bruising after treatment, which can be covered with makeup. It is best to have an in-office consultation for us to be able to explain all of the benefits and risks of this treatment.
