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 20—about the time you may start to notice the formation of wrinkles. That means by age 50, you face up to a 30% loss of collagen!
Sculptra Aesthetic can reverse the effects of aging.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which stimulates the body to replace lost collagen to correct shallow-to-deep facial wrinkles and folds that appear with aging. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades.
Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, Sculptra Aesthetic helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost to aging. Sculptra Aesthetic works subtly and gradually over time to restore a youthful-looking appearance.
How long will it take to see results, and how long with they last?
Results appear gradually over the treatment regime (typically three injections over the course of three to four months). The results vary by patient, but they can last up to two years.
Cost: $750 per vial. Usually $1,500 per treatment with two vials at a time.
Before undergoing a Sculptra injectable treatment, please read and follow these guidelines.
