Sculptra Injectable Wrinkle Filler
Sculptra® Aesthetic is indicated for the correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold (smile lines), contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles which are treated with the appropriate injection technique in healthy people.
Sculptra is the first facial injectable that gives you subtle results over time. It replaces lost collagen and gives 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 subtle can be. Welcome to the new age of anti-age.
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. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra Aesthetic is not an overnight miracle or a quick fix. It is long lasting. This facial injectable is the first of its kind to provide subtle results that occur gradually, over time. Sculptra works to restore lost collagen for a younger, more natural-looking face that doesn’t reveal that you’ve had any work done. A full Sculptra Aesthetic treatment consists of approximately three sessions of injections over a period of a few months, the results of which typically last two years or more.* Discover the beauty of subtlety with Sculptra Aesthetic, an injectable that provides anti-aging results fit for the modern age.
The Sculptra Aesthetic injectable contains poly-L-lactic acid, a vital ingredient that effectively restores the skin’s lost collagen. This injectable is used to fill in facial wrinkles, from fine lines to deep folds.* Made of a synthetic material that is both biocompatible and biodegradable, Sculptra has been used for years by physicians to smooth out wrinkles and provide their patients with a younger-looking appearance.
How Does Sculptra work?
Sculptra Aesthetic works to gradually restore collagen that has been lost during the aging process. Collagen is a structural protein in the skin that provides elasticity to the skin, giving it suppleness. As skin ages, the amount of collagen it produces decreases and wrinkles begin to appear. The Sculptra injectable reverses this process by stimulating collagen production so that facial wrinkles, creases and folds* are reduced or eliminated, leaving a younger, more supple facial appearance.
Sculptra Aesthetic works to replace lost collagen in a series of treatments administered by a Sculptra Aeshetic trained physician. On average, three injection sessions are needed over a period of a few months. The number of injection sessions and the number of injections per session vary from person to person.
Sculptra Aesthetic works deep within the skin, at the dermis level.
As the Sculptra Aesthetic facial injectable works at a deep level within the skin, in the dermis layer, the restored collagen it creates provides extra structural support to the skin’s foundation. This has the effect of restoring a look of fullness to the face, as Sculptra fills the wrinkles and deeper folds of the skin. What makes Sculptra so unique is that it provides these beautifying results to the skin gradually, so that facial wrinkles disappear over time and are replaced with a fresher, younger-looking face. Patients can typically enjoy these long-lasting results for two or more years after treatment.**
