If you want a look that’s not obvious and doesn’t look like you’ve had any work done, then Sculptra® may be a good option for you. Unlike other injectable treatments, Sculptra® gradually replaces lost collagen. The gradual results are natural-looking and can last up to 2 years.
Sculptra® is a facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen. As you age, your body’s collagen production decreases, and you may begin to see wrinkles. Sculptra® 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® works in a series of treatments. On average, 3 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 is different because it gradually and subtly corrects facial wrinkles. This can provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance that can last up to 2 years.
Individual result and treatment regimens may vary.
- Sculptra® Aesthetic is not for use in the lips.
- Sculptra® Aesthetic is not recommended for use around the eyes.
