Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen — an underlying cause of facial aging — for results that can last more than two years. It's used to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds
What makes sculptra aesthetics so unique?
Works with your body to revitalize collagen production, helping to restore your skin's inner structure.
Sculptra Aesthetic helps stimulate your skin's own natural collagen production to increase overall facial volume.
Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Sculptra Aesthetics is a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) -based treatment. Once injected, it begins working deep within the skin to help stimulate collagen production., reinforce the skins inner structure and restoring its volume.
As the Sculptra Aesthetics PPLA microparticles are absorbed by the skin, they help stimulate collagen production, creating a framework that helps restore facial volume.
Sculptra Aesthetics works subtly and gradually over time for results that can last more than 2 years.
In the major clinical study of Sculptra Aesthetics, patients were still showing improvement 25 months after the last injection. The study ended at 25 months.
Why is collagen important to the skin as we age?
- Age-induced collagen loss weakens your skins inner structure, reducing its ability to maintain elasticity and moisture.
- This weakened inner structure can lead to lines, wrinkles, and folds, as well as a loss of skin volume and support.
- Dermal fillers address only lines wrinkles and folds, not collagen loss or skin structure.
