Sculptra® Aesthetic works a little differently from other dermal fillers. This is not an actualr dermal “filler” but rather a biostimulator that helps your body produce and replace lost collagen and thus lost volume. This treatment is considered more of a volumizer than wrinkle filler. This biostimulating volume replacement is injected, and when mixed with your body’s own collagen, it fills the skin so that it “lifts” and gives the patient a more youthful appearance.
The full course of treatment with Sculptra® usually includes three sessions of injections that are administered over a period of a few months. The time between sessions allows for more natural results, and may last up to two years. Sculptra® Aesthetic makes use of a different chemical called the poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to stimulate collagen production in the skin. This is a highly biocompatible material which makes it safe for the patient.
When the natural collagen structure within the deep layers of the skin is restored, it helps to improve the volume of the face and reduce the prominent wrinkles and deep folds. The results are very natural looking and do not appear conspicuous to an observer because they show up gradually, and not overnight. The benefit is that once the collagen is produced, it is yours to keep and unlike regular dermal fillers, Sculptra helps your body make its own collagen and does not dissolve over time.
WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS?
After the treatment, redness, swelling, itching, and bruising may be experienced at the injection site. Sculptra® Aesthetic is not designed for use on the red area of the lips. It is FDA approved to improve facial lines, folds, and loss of fat from certain chronic diseases. This product is recommended to compensate for the natural signs of aging; to bring back the contours of the face. It is not recommended to use Sculptra® on the skin near the eyes. It is most important to be treated by a qualified physician to ensure you get the best results possible.
