What is Sculptra Aesthetic?
Sculptra Aesthetic is a dermal filler that works to replace collagen lost over time. Collagen loss is one of the biggest culprits that leads to signs of aging, and this FDA-approved injectable provides results that can last over two years. Sculptra Aesthetic reduces the appearance of smile lines, chin wrinkles, and marionette lines near the jawbone by stimulating the production of collagen and increasing collagen growth. This influx of collagen works to give your face a youthful fullness and volume, resulting in a younger and more beautiful looking you.
Where is Sculptra Injected?
Sculptra is injected into the deep dermis, an area of the skin where collagen is produced. The injection will take place at the problem area you have targeted on the face. Sculptra should not be used on frown lines, the forehead, around the mouth, in the lips or around the eyes. A trained and experienced medical professional can advise you on the best areas for a Sculptra injection based on the results you wish to see.
How is Sculptra Different Than Juvederm and Restylane?
Juvederm and Restylane are treatments for patients who need only a small amount of filling, targeting specific wrinkles and lines. Sculptra is for larger, broader skin treatments, promoting the growth of collagen under the skin for longer lasting results. Sculptra adds volume to the face, filling in grooves and hollow points in the face to provide a more youthful appearance. Juvederm and Restylane are gels that are injected into the skin to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles. A medical professional can determine if Sculptra or Juvederm/Restylane are your best options based on a variety of factors, including needed volume replacement, age, and desired amount of maintenance.
How Long Does Sculptra Last?
Sculptra sets itself apart from the competition in how long it lasts. While some filler may last only a few months, Sculptra Aesthetic can last around 2 years once the full series of treatments is completed. While results will last 2 years, it is suggested to get a maintenance treatment every year so that you are always looking your best.
