How Does Sculptra® Aesthetic Work?
Sculptra® Aesthetic is an injectable poly-L-lactic acid formula used to treat volume loss and wrinkles in the face. It works by stimulating the growth of collagen, which is a protein that makes the skin resilient and tight. More collagen means that wrinkles are less likely to form and are less severe when they do.
While Sculptra® Aesthetic is usually referred to as a dermal filler, in truth, it does not replace volume due to fat or water loss like other dermal fillers. Instead, the treatment enhances skin and repairs existing tissue damage via collagen stimulation. This injectable restores the structure and volume of the skin to add fullness and smooth wrinkles and contour deformities.
What Areas Can Sculptra® Aesthetic Treat?
The most common areas treated with Sculptra® Aesthetic include:
- Smile lines (nasolabial folds)
- Marionette lines (from the outer corners of the mouth downward)
- Chin wrinkles
How Many Sculptra® Aesthetic Treatments Do I Need?
Sculptra® Aesthetic is a simple series of injections. Most patients require multiple treatments, roughly 3 to 6, to see optimal results. These treatments should be spaced 3 to 5 weeks apart.
What Is the Recovery After Sculptra® Aesthetic Injections Like?
There is minimal downtime as a result of the procedure. There will be swelling and discomfort around the injection sites for 1 to 3 days following treatment. Most patients do not experience significant issues during their recovery period.
What Results Can I Expect After a Sculptra® Aesthetic Treatment?
Initial results are generally visible within 1 to 2 weeks following treatment as new collagen growth occurs. Most patients will see long-lasting results after their treatment regime has concluded.
How Long Does Sculptra® Aesthetic Last?
In a clinical trial, 80 percent of patients reported satisfaction with their results 25 months after their final injection. This suggests that Sculptra® Aesthetic is long lasting and highly effective for over 2 years.
