Sculptra® Aesthetic (injectable poly-L-lactic acid) is indicated for use in people with healthy immune systems as a one-time treatment regimen of up to four injection sessions for the correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles
Sculptra acts as a bio-activator and extremely powerful collagen stimulator. It stimulates your own collagen, allowing tissue to volumize gradually. Over time, the Poly-L-Lactic Acid dissipates as your own tissue takes its place.
Since the product triggers your body to build its own collagen, results are not immediate and can take anywhere from 4-6 months.
Who is a Good Candidate for Treatment?
People who are concerned with hollowness and/or loss of volume due to aging, weight loss, etc. are the most likely candidate for Sculptra.
Collagen is a key structural component of smooth, healthy-looking skin. As you age, your body’s collagen production decreases.
Sculptra Aesthetic should not be used by people that are allergic to any ingredient of the product or have a history of keloid formation or hypertrophic scarring. Safety has not been established in patients who are pregnant, lactating, breastfeeding, or under 18 years of age.
