About Sculptra® Aesthetic
Age Doesn’t Have to Look the Way It Used To. It’s More Subtle. More Gradual. Shouldn’t Your Anti-age Be Just as Subtle?
Introducing Sculptra® Aesthetic. Not an overnight miracle or a quick fix, but a long-lasting solution. Sculptra® is the first facial injectable that gives you subtle results over time by replacing lost collagen and giving you a more natural-looking appearance, without giving you away. A full treatment of Sculptra® Aesthetic, an average of three injection sessions over a few months, can last up to two years.* So you have more time to see how sensational subtle can be. Welcome to the new age of anti-aging.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen. It helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles, and folds,** that appear with aging by replacing lost collagen. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades.
How Does Sculptra® Aesthetic Work?
Sculptra® Aesthetic Gradually Replaces Lost Collagen
Collagen is a key structural component that keeps skin youthful looking and smooth. As you age, your body’s collagen production decreases, and you may begin to see wrinkles. Sculptra® Aesthetic works to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds,* as it replaces lost collagen, which can help provide a refined, more youthful-looking appearance.
Sculptra® Aesthetic works to replace lost collagen in a series of treatments. On average, three injection sessions are needed over a period of a few months. The number of injection sessions and the number of injections per session vary from person to person.
Sculptra® Aesthetic Works Within the Deep Dermis
Within the deep dermis, your skin’s structure is reinforced as Sculptra® Aesthetic helps to replace lost collagen. This reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness to your shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds* that have been depleted over time. The result? Sculptra® Aesthetic is different because it gradually and subtly corrects these facial wrinkles. This can provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance that can last up to two years.**
- Nasolabial folds or smile lines
- Marionette lines or the lines framing your mouth
- Chin wrinkles
*Individual results and treatment sessions may vary.
**Safety and effectiveness of Sculptra® Aesthetic have not been evaluated in areas other than nasolabial wrinkles and folds in clinical trials.
