What Is Sculptra Aesthetic?

Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen due to facial aging. Sculptra works subtly and gradually over time for a more youthful-looking appearance, and results can last up to two years.*

While Sculptra Aesthetic is a dermal filler it is not like most dermal fillers that consist of hyaluronic acid (HA) Sculptra is made-up of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible synthetic substance that stimulates collagen production.

For most people, Sculptra Aesthetic is intended as a one-time treatment regimen of up to four injection sessions scheduled about three weeks apart.

If you’d like to know more about Sculptra Aesthetic or dermal filler injections at L&P Aesthetics in Palo Alto and Los Gatos, CA, call (650) 327-3232 or schedule a consult with one of our expert injectors online.

What to Expect During the Procedure / What Concerns Does Sculptra Address?

Sculptra is used to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and has been clinically approved to treat smile lines and other wrinkles around the nose and mouth as well as chin wrinkles. It is particularly effective for people on the thinner side who begin to look gaunt during the aging process. Sculptra is not recommended for use on the eyes or the lips.

Why L&P and Is Sculptra Safe & Who Is A Good Candidate?

If Sculptra is performed by a facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Lieberman, Dr. Parikh, or Dr. Curti, or by one of the highly-trained R.N.s at L&P Aesthetics, Sculptra is a very safe injectable. The dermal filler has been around since 1999 and was FDA-approved in 2014 to treat wrinkles and folds on the face.

Sculptra is not recommended for people with allergies to any of the listed ingredients or for people with medical conditions that cause irregular scarring.

How Long Does Sculptra Last & What Is The Downtime?

Results of Sculptra have been proven to last up to two years. It is important to follow your provider’s instructions in terms of the number of treatments needed to achieve your desired result. The average regimen consists of three to four injections spread out over three or four months. Some people will see results after their first treatment, but Sculptra works gradually and most people need consecutive treatments to achieve their desired results. After the treatment, many people return to their normal activities immediately. However, there could be some slight swelling, redness or bruising near the injection site which usually subsides within 24 hours.
