Sculptra Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid which helps to replace lost collagen. It helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that appear with age by replacing lost collagen. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades.
Within the deep dermis, your skin’s structure is reinforced as Sculptra helps to replace lost collagen. This reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness in your shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that have been depleted over time. Sculptra 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 two years.
Sculptra is suitable for:
• Deep folds between the nose and the mouth (nasolabial folds) also called smile lines
• The lines framing your mouth (marionette lines)
• Chin wrinkles
Sculptra is intended for use in people with healthy immune systems as a one-time treatment regimen of up to 4 injection sessions that are scheduled about 3 weeks apart for correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles.
Side effects of Sculptra may include injection site discomfort, redness, bruising, bleeding, itching and swelling. Other side effects may include small lumps under the skin that are sometimes noticeable when pressing on the treated area. Larger lumps, some with delayed onset with or without inflammation or skin discoloration, have also been reported. In a key clinical study the numbers of small and larger lumps were low and most resolved without treatment.
You should not use Sculptra if you are allergic to any ingredient of the product or have a history of severe allergies, keloid formation or hypertrophic scarring. Sculptra should not be injected while you have an active skin infection or inflammation in the treatment area.
