What Is Sculptra Aesthetic®?
Sculptra Aesthetic® is the new age of anti-age. It works gradually and can last up to 2 years. The main ingredient is poly-L-lactic-acid (PLLA), which has been used for decades in dissolvable stitches, and has been used cosmetically in Europe for over 10 years. PPLA is a synthetic material that is absorbed by the body as it works to replace lost collagen, giving you a natural look.
How Does Sculptra Aesthetic® Work?
FDA-approved Sculptra Aesthetic® is different from other fillers in that it gradually replaces lost collagen. As we age, we develop shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds. Over time, wrinkles become more apparent, primarily due to the loss of collagen. It is believed that Sculptra Aesthetic@ works within the deep dermis to help replace lost collagen. As collagen is replaced, it gradually provides a foundation that corrects deep facial wrinkles and folds, providing a more youthful appearance.
What Can Sculptra Aesthetic® Help Correct?
Sculptra Aesthetic® can correct wrinkles and folds including: marionette lines and chin wrinkles. It works gradually and may require multiple periodic treatments to achieve a full correction. The materials may last up to 2 years.
