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?
Sculptra® Aesthetic. Not an overnight miracle. Long lasting. Not a quick-fix. The first facial injectable that gives you subtle results over time. Replacing lost collagen. 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 more than two years. So you have more time to see how sensational subtle can be. Discover anti-age for the modern age.
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.
Before and After
How Does it Work?
SCULPTRA® targets one of the underlying causes of the signs of facial aging: the loss of facial collagen.
SCULPTRA® targets one of the underlying causes of the signs of facial aging: the loss of facial collagen. It can give you noticeable results that emerge subtly.
Poly-L-lactic acid, the main component of SCULPTRA®, begins to work within the deep dermis (underlying skin), where your skin’s structure is reinforced as SCULPTRA® helps to replace lost collagen.
The reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness of your shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that have developed over time.
Repairs Wrinkles & Folds
The result? SCULPTRA® is different from other facial injectables because it gradually and subtly corrects these facial wrinkles and folds. This can provide a refined, younger-looking appearance.
The extent of the procedure may involve one or several areas of the face, and the appropriate dosage for each area may vary, making it difficult to provide a meaningful cost estimate until you are examined by a doctor.
The average cost for Sculptra® is $700 per syringe.
What to Expect
Usually 3-5 sessions for optimal correction…
Here's what to expect:
SCULPTRA® is administered in a series of treatment sessions by a SCULPTRA®-trained physician. On average, 3-5 sessions (at 4- to 6-week intervals) are needed. The number of treatment sessions you require will depend on various factors, such as your age, how deep your wrinkles are, and the areas you wish to treat.
At your initial treatment, your SCULPTRA® physician will also determine with you if and how many follow-up treatments may be required. It is important to return for all treatment sessions as instructed by your doctor in order to get the maximum effect from the gradual process of collagen replacement offered by SCULPTRA®.
During the entire treatment process, unwanted deep lines and wrinkles gradually diminish as the skin firms up from the production of your own collagen. The time between sessions gives your SCULPTRA® treatment enough time to work so that your physician can fine-tune your follow-up treatments.
