Sculptra® Aesthetic is a long acting facial filler that is targeted for individuals that have severe hollowness in their face and is highlighted for its incredible ability to restore extreme facial volume. Sculptra is FDA approved to treat HIV patients that have suffered severe tissue atrophy and need facial augmentation.
Sculptra’s main component is poly-L-lactic acid that replaces lost collagen in the skin to help improve the appearance of severe hollowness. Sculptra provides an excellent outcome to fill in laugh lines, marionette lines and chin wrinkles, reversing the signs of aging.
The effects and final results with Sculptra are not immediately apparent because it is a chemical stimulant. Unlike a standard filler, Sculptra must be given time for the body to react and thicken the specific areas of injection; whereas hyaluronic acid fillers instantly add volume upon injection. The effects with Sculptra are slightly seen upon injection, then they gradually develop for over several weeks, thus leading to a thicker dermal layer, adding volume and reducing the appearance of overlying wrinkles. Sculptra works to increase the strength, stability, and number of fibers contributing to the extracellular matrix, reinforcing the skin layers to gradually lift over time. Generally patients receive three treatments over a two to three month period. Sculptra gives an excellent and natural result that lasts up to two years.
