Sculptra® Aesthetic is one of the longest-lasting “fillers” available. Since Sculptra does not cause an immediate fill, it is better to consider it a stimulatory injection. Its active ingredient is L-poly-lactic acid, which is essentially a sugar molecule, that is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades. Sculptra® Aesthetic gradually replaces lost collagen, and is suitable for deep folds between the nose and the mouth (nasolabial folds) also called smile lines, the lines framing your mouth (marionette lines) and chin wrinkles.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is an excellent option for adding volume throughout the entire face. Collagen is a key structural component that keeps skin youthful looking and smooth. As you age, your body’s collagen production decreases, and you may begin to see wrinkles. Sculptra® Aesthetic works to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds as it replaces lost collagen, which can help provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance. On average, two three-injection sessions are needed over a period of a few months. Sculptra® is commonly combined with other fillers, toxins, or laser procedures.
