What Is Sculptra® Aesthetic?
Sculptra® Aesthetic is a revolutionary dermal filler that is FDA approved to smooth wrinkles and restore lost volume in various areas of the face, such as the cheeks and under the eyes.
While there are many dermal fillers available to patients (such as JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®), these fillers only offer short-term correction to volume loss. These other fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid (HA), which attracts and retains moisture in the skin; however, Sculptra® Aesthetic is made of poly-L-lactic acid.
Poly-L-lactic acid actively stimulates collagen production in your skin instead of simply filling the skin with HA. This is important because collagen is responsible for the overall health, strength, elasticity, and suppleness of your skin.
The other benefit of Sculptra® Aesthetic is that your results will last longer than other dermal fillers because of the increased collagen production.Schedule a Consultation

What Will Be Discussed During My Sculptra® Aesthetic Consultation?
At your Sculptra® Aesthetic consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss your cosmetic frustrations with your provider, and they will evaluate your facial skin to determine if this injectable is the right treatment for you.
How Will My Sculptra® Aesthetic Treatment Be Performed?
Sculptra® Aesthetic is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that is performed using topical anesthesia to help reduce any discomfort. Once the topical anesthesia is applied, your provider will inject the Sculptra® Aesthetic solution into the deep dermis to stimulate collagen production in the skin.
Numerous areas of the face can be treated at the same time, and once the injections are complete, your treatment session is finished. Most Sculptra® Aesthetic treatments sessions last anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes, which means that you can have your skin rejuvenation treatment performed during your lunch break.
Most patients require a series of three injection treatments, typically spaced two to four weeks apart.

When Will I See My Sculptra® Aesthetic Results?
Because Sculptra® Aesthetic stimulates collagen production, which occurs over time, you should not expect to see immediate results after your treatment. Instead, you will likely see your results gradually However, because you will have continued collagen production, you can expect to have long-lasting results.
How Long Will My Results Last?
