Sculptra Aesthetics

SCULPTRA™

As we age, our body naturally creates less collagen, the skin component responsible for strength and elasticity. The decrease in collagen leads to the appearance of folds, wrinkles, and hollowness on our faces. To counter that, a customized cosmetic treatment plan can be developed for you, which might include BOTOX® or other longer lasting fillers and injectibles like Sculptra or Radiesse.

Sculptra is a popular option for restoring a more youthful look to the face using wrinkle fillers, and is a collagen regeneration product. It is an FDA approved soft tissue filler that stimulates your skin’s fibroblasts to produce new collagen, thereby reversing the loss of the skin’s fullness. It is used to fill and recontour areas where underlying supportive collagen and fat tissue have diminished with age or have been damaged by injury or disease. Sculptra is most often used to cheek hollows, smile lines, and depressions around the eyes. It is also used to restore fullness to the hands for a natural, younger appearance.

YOUR SCULPTRA TREATMENT

Sculptra treatments consist of a simple series of injections into the deeper layers of skin. Each treatment takes only minutes to perform, and is usually done in a series of two or three sessions. Side effects include short term bruising, redness, soreness, and slight swelling. There is very little downtime.

The results of Sculptra injections are not immediate. However, the effects of the treatments are enduring and will continue to improve. Skin thickness can increase over the course of several weeks, and may require a second or third treatment to touch up the area. Unlike other absorbable injectables that last only a few months, the benefits of Sculptra can last up to three years.

Your Sculptra treatment will be performed by our board-certified physician, and the founder of NewSkin Laser Center, Alan Darush, M.D. Dr. Darush is fully trained using Sculptra and other advanced wrinkle fillers and injection techniques. Dr. Darush specializes in anti-aging treatments and non-surgical cosmetic procedures with a holistic approach to health and beauty.

 

 

 

Where can Sculptra™ be used?
Our faces don't so much 'fall' with time. They actually lose volume and deflate. This deflation and volume loss leaves us looking less 3-dimensional than we did when we were younger. Volume restoration brings back the dimensional qualities, improves symmetry and can 'pick up' sagging skin.

Sculptra™ can be used to restore volume to hollow areas of the temples, cheeks, chin and under the eyes, as well as to define the jaw line. It is not recommended for use in and around the lips. Lips and wrinkles are best treated with other products such as Radiesse, Restylane or Juvederm.

 

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 (injectable poly-L-lactic acid) 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 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. 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.**

Side effects of Sculptra Aesthetic may include injection site discomfort, redness, bruising, bleeding, itching, and swelling.

*Safety and effectiveness of Sculptra Aesthetic have not been evaluated in areas other than nasolabial wrinkles and folds in clinical trials.

**Individual results and treatment sessions may vary.

***Based on pre-clinical evaluation in animals. Sculptra Aesthetic is thought to work in a similar process. 


Sculptra® Aesthetic is different in the way it works.

Provides gradual results that can last up to 2 years*

Goes to the source of facial aging

Sculptra Aesthetic targets the underlying causes of the signs of facial aging.
It can give you noticeable results that emerge subtly and can last for up to
2 years.* It begins to work within the deep dermis, where 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 have depleted over time. The result?

Is biocompatible and biodegradable

Sculptra Aesthetic is made from a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body as it works to replace lost collagen. Poly-L-lactic acid has been used for decades in dissolvable stitches and as a facial injectable since 1999 in over 30 countries.

*Individual results and treatment sessions may vary. 


How is Sculptra™ administered?
Each treatment consists of a few injections to the areas to be volumized i.e; temple/cheeks/chin/jaw line. The product is administered with local anesthesia and the discomfort is minimal.
