What Is Sculptra® Aesthetic?
Address an underlying cause of facial aging, not just the symptoms
Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen — an underlying cause of facial aging — for results that can last more than two years.
It’s used to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds
If you want to improve the look of smile lines, marionette lines or chin wrinkles without looking “done” — or worse, “overdone” — then you should talk to us about Sculptra Aesthetic.
Why should you choose Sculptra Aesthetic?
Real results that last
Not all treatments or injectables are created the same. Some target different areas of the face, and, more importantly, produce different effects.
Traditional collagen creams purport to deliver collagen that is absorbed by the skin. However, collagen molecules are too large to penetrate the dermis. So, in actuality, most of these treatments include vitamins and hold moisture, making them suitable moisturizers that can briefly improve skin’s appearance.
Collagen dietary supplements are meant to facilitate the production of collagen within the body. However, collagen is a protein that, when ingested, is broken down by the digestive system. Results for these types of treatments are inconclusive.
Toxins work by temporarily weakening muscles, typically in the forehead, to minimize frown lines. Results appear within a couple days and can last up to a couple months.

One to four treatment sessons (typically three) may be needed to achieve optimal correction with a minimum of three week intervals between injection sessions.
Collagen by the numbers
Collagen is a key structural component of smooth, healthy-looking skin. As you age, your body’s collagen production decreases. In fact, you lose about 1% of collagen per year after the age of 18.5 This is when you may start to notice the formation of wrinkles. Luckily, Sculptra Aesthetic can help, even if decades of collagen loss have already occurred.

Results appear gradually over the treatment regime (typically three injections over the course of three to four months) and can last up to two years.*

Collagen Is the Key
The not-so-secret cause of facial aging
One of the primary reasons for visible facial aging is loss of collagen, a fibrous protein in the deep dermis that gives structure to skin and supports the functions of elastin and hyaluronic acid (HA). Elastin is an elastic protein that
maintains skin shape, while HA cushions and lubricates to keep the skin hydrated. More collagen enables the presence of more elastin and HA.
If you want to appear more youthful-looking — without appearing like you’ve had work done — then chances are Sculptra Aesthetic may be a good choice for you.
How does Sculptra Aesthetic work?
Slow and steady strength
Sculptra Aesthetic is made with bio-compatible, biodegradable, synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments administered by a trained specialist.
