Many people lose fat in their faces as they age. The temples, eyes, and cheeks can become “sunken in” and take on an appearance of hollowness as we get older. Sculptra® Aesthetic is an injectable treatment that can be an excellent choice for volumizing and restoring fullness to facial features. Not only can Sculptra® Aesthetic be used to treat lipoatrophy (hollowness in the cheeks), it can also be very effective at rejuvenating areas of fine lines and wrinkles. Plus, Sculptra® Aesthetic often lasts longer than other dermal fillers.
What makes Sculptra® Aesthetic stand out among non-surgical enhancement treatments is its ability to stimulate the skin’s natural collagen, helping the skin to replenish itself long after treatment. Composed of Poly-L-Lactic acid, a substance that can help collagen growth, Sculptra® Aesthetic typically does not require an allergy test before treatment. The procedure is performed using an ultra-fine needle to inject the solution into the areas targeted for treatment. A topical numbing agent can be applied to the target areas to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. The entire procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes to complete. Patients may need a series of treatments to obtain optimal results.
The effects of Sculptra® Aesthetic are often most apparent after a few months, as new collagen growth continues to improve and replenish the skin. Patients have experienced the benefits of Sculptra® Aesthetic for up to two years after the initial treatment.
