Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved dermal filler that targets the underlying cause of wrinkles: lost collagen. It is the first dermal filler of its kind, providing subtle results over time which last for more than two years.
As we get older, our skin naturally produces less collagen which results in loose skin that’s prone to unsightly lines, folds, and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Combine aging with sun exposure, and our skin can quickly begin to lose its smooth, supple, youthful appearance. Sculptra Aesthetic works over time to restore your skin to its youthful state, helping you get the results you want while also ensuring a natural finish.
Sculptra Aesthetic is currently approved to treat shallow to deep wrinkles between the nose and mouth. It is particularly effective for:
- Smile lines (deep folds between the nose and mouth)
- Marionette lines (lines framing the mouth)
- Chin wrinkles
Sculptra Aesthetic uses a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) to replace lost collagen and restore your skin’s youthful, vibrant appearance. It is injected into the deep dermis layer of the skin to fill in the gaps where collagen is needed, i.e. where there are visible folds and wrinkles on the outer layers of skin. PLLA, which has been used by physicians for decades, is safely and naturally absorbed by the body within days of an injection. No allergy testing is necessary with this treatment.
On average, Sculptra Aesthetic takes three to four sessions, each around four to six weeks apart. You’ll notice a gradual improvement in the look and feel of your skin over the course of treatment. Each procedure takes less than one hour and the treatment is minimally invasive.
If you’re looking for a subtle solution to facial wrinkles around your nose and mouth that lasts for years, then Sculptra Aesthetic may be a great option for you. Schedule a consultation today!
