Sculptra Aesthetic is a great treatment to address the underlying cause of facial aging, which is loss of collagen. It is an injectable that helps to gradually replace collagen and results can last for 2 or more years. It can correct shallow and deep facial wrinkles. Results appear gradually over the treatment regime (typically three injections over the course of three to four months) and can last up to two years.* As a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, Sculptra Aesthetic is different. It works with your body within the deep dermis, rather than topically, to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume.1-3 As the Sculptra Aesthetic PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production. Rebuilt collagen strands begin gradually helping to restore facial volume4 and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds. The specialist injects treatment within the deep dermis, where strands of collagen support your skin’s structure. Over time, Sculptra Aesthetic helps the body reproduce lost collagen. On average, three injection appointments are needed over a period of a few months. The number of injection appointments and the number of injections per appointment vary from person to person, depending on how much collagen has been lost.
