Unlike a traditional facial filler, Sculptra® Aesthetic improves volume and contour by stimulating the body's own collagen.
By using advanced injection techniques, Sculptra® Aesthetic can lift, reshape the face, create volume and also improve the tone and texture of the skin (as in the liquid facelift). This makes it a versatile product for full facial rejuvenation. Sculptra® Aesthetic requires special preparation and a very advanced injection technique, the best Sculptra® Aesthetic practitioners are those who have extensive experience in aesthetic injecting.

A full treatment of Sculptra® Aesthetic, an average of three injection sessions over a few months, can last more than two years. So you have more time to see how sensational subtle can be. Discover anti-age for the modern 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.
Sculptra® Aesthetic gradually replaces lost collagen
Sculptra® Aesthetic is injected below the surface of the skin in the area of fat loss. Sculptra® Aesthetic provides a gradual increase in collagen. Visible results appear within the first few treatment sessions. It will not correct the underlying cause of the facial fat loss, but will help improve the appearance by increasing skin thickness in the treated area. 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, 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 is biostimulant and not a dermal filler. Dr. Astaphan can inject in many different areas in the face for a very natural appearance. When used in this fashion, you will not get that puffy look that has become associated with too much facial filler. However, if you’re looking for immediate results, Sculptra® Aesthetic is not for you. It takes weeks to months for your body to stimulate its own collagen.
Sculptra® Aestheic is one of the longest lasting injectables for facial rejuvenation. It has an FDA approval of two years, but will probably last up to three years because of the new collagen that has formed. However, the face will continue to age and collagen will continue to break down. Most people have a series of treatments initially to achieve an optimal results and follow up with maintenance touch ups every 1-2 years.
Sculptra® Aesthetic works within the deep dermis
Within the deep dermis, your skin’s structure is reinforced as Sculptra® Aesthetic helps to replace lost collagen. This reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness of your shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that has been depleted over time. The result? Sculptra® Aesthetic is different because it gradually and subtly corrects these facial wrinkles. This can provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance that can last more than two years.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is used to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds which are treated with the appropriate injection technique. Sculptra® Aesthetic is suitable for:
- Deep folds between the nose and the mouth (nasolabial folds) also called smile lines
- The lines framing your mouth (marionette lines)
- Chin wrinkles
- Diminished volume in the upper face and temples
- Sunken cheeks
Are The Results of Sculptra® Aesthetic Immediate? No. At your first treatment visit, it may appear that Sculptra® worked immediately because of swelling from the injections and the water used to dilute Sculptra®. It takes time to gradually correct the depression in your skin. The appropriate number of treatments will be determined based on your unique conditions.
