Sculptra® – A Solution for Thin or Depressed Skin
Has your skin lost its elasticity and firmness? Are there deep folds between your nose and mouth? Do you want to treat hollow, sunken cheeks or thin, "depressed" areas, or reduce the appearance of lines and deep scars? If so, Sculptra® may be right for you. An FDA-approved substance made from the same material as dissolving stitches, Sculptra is different from other "fillers" that merely plump the skin for a short time. Sculptra is a “volumizer” that actually stimulates your body to produce its own collagen for a long-lasting, natural look.
Sculptra treatments can significantly increase skin thickness and improve the appearance of depressed scars, folds, and the hollow, sunken areas of the mid- and lower face. Loose, wrinkled and sagging skin is smoothed and filled out. What's more, there is little or no downtime and treatments take only about half an hour. To learn more about Sculptra, click here.

How does Sculptra® Aesthetic work?
Sculptra® Aesthetic gradually replaces lost collagen. Collagen is a key structural component that keeps skin youthful looking and smooth. As you age, your body's collagen production decreases, and you may begin to see wrinkles. Sculptra® Aesthetic 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. Safety and effectiveness of Sculptra Aesthetic have not been evaluated in areas other than nasolabial wrinkles and folds in clinical trials.
Sculptra® Aesthetic works to replace lost collagen in a series of treatments administered by a Sculptra trained physician. 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 works within the deep dermis.
Within the deep dermis, your skin's structure is reinforced as Sculptra® Aesthetic helps to replace lost collagen. This reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness of your shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that has been depleted over time. Safety and effectiveness of Sculptra® Aesthetic have not been evaluated in areas other than nasolabial wrinkles and folds in clinical trials. The result? Sculptra® Aesthetic is different because it gradually and subtly corrects these facial wrinkles. This can provide a refined, more youthful-looking appearance that can last up to 2 years. Individual results and treatment sessions may vary.
SIde effects of Sculptra® Aesthetic may include injection site discomfort, redness, bruising, bleeding, itching and swelling.
