What is Sculptra?
Sculptra Aesthetic is the first facial injectable that is designed to give you noticeable results that emerge subtly. It replaces lost collagen to subtly restore your youthful appearance.
How is Sculptra different from dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvederm?
Other dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvederm are designed for immediate results, whereas Sculptra’s results are designed to emerge gradually so you can reverse the signs of aging and return to a more youthful appearance without anyone wondering if you’ve “had work done.”
What is Sculptra made of?
Sculptra Aesthetic is made of a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which works to replace lost collagen. Poly-L-lactic acid is safe, absorbed naturally by the body, and has been used for years in dissolvable stitches.
What is Sculptra best used for?
Sculptra treats shallow as well as deep wrinkles and facial folds.
How long does Sculptra last?
Sculptra’s refined, youthful results last up to two years after your last treatment.
How soon can I expect results with Sculptra?
Because Sculptra targets the underlying causes of the signs of facial aging, its results aren’t immediate. Instead, you’ll have a series of injections – probably three – which will take place over the course of a few months. Some visible improvements can be seen within the first few weeks of treatment, but the Sculptra regimen is designed to deliver its unique effects over the course of a few months and last for up to two years. Because results happen gradually, you’ll see subtle yet noticeable results in the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds.
Is Sculptra FDA approved?
Sculptra has been safely used worldwide since 1999, in over 150,000 patients, under the trade names New-Fill™ and Sculptra. In 2009, the FDA granted approval in the U.S. for the correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold (smile lines) contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles which are treated with the appropriate injection technique in healthy people.
