How Sculptra Aesthetic Works
Unlike toxin treatments that temporarily relax muscles to treat these lines, or filler substances that work by pushing up the dermis, Sculptra works by encouraging collagen growth, reconstructing the underlying structures of the skin. Sculptra is deposited deep within the dermis (rather than topically) to reduce wrinkles and restore facial volume from the inside out.
On average, the average patient requires three treatments over a few months. Results appear gradually during the treatment and the results can last as long as two years.
What Sculptra Aesthetic Can Accomplish
This treatment is used to correct shallow to deep folds and wrinkles in the face, including, but not limited to:
Or nasolabial folds, are the folds that run between the nose and mouth.
Deep lines that frame the sides of the mouth. Also known as “laugh lines.”
Wrinkles below the mouth that grow more prominent with age.
