WHAT IS SCULPTRA?
Sculptra Aesthetic is a uniquely designed and innovative dermal filler developed by Galderma, the creators of Restylane. This filler is made from the material poly-L-lactic acid, a biodegradable polymer that stimulates the growth of regenerative tissue over a prolonged period of time. In 2009 Sculptra was FDA approved for correction of shallow to deep facial wrinkles and contour deficiencies.
WHY CHOOSE SCULPTRA?
Sculptra is not so much a filler on its own, but a collagen stimulator. Meaning, any volume that is achieved through Sculptra injections is produced by ones own collagen production and therefore is as natural as can be. This regeneration of tissue improves elasticity, appearance, volume, and texture of the skin. Through this method, Sculptra is able to address the underlying causes of aging rather than just treating the symptoms of it, which is a much more effective, natural, and long-lasting way of addressing this ailment.
WHICH AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH SCULPTRA?
Sculptra can stimulate collagen growth in and smoothen nasolabial folds (those from the nose to the corners of the mouth), marionette lines (those that go from the corners of the mouth to the chin), temples, chin, tear trough (under the eye), jawline, and other facial areas with contour deficiencies. Further, Sculptra is able to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and lines. These areas become plumped through the body’s own collagen regeneration.
