Facial aging and sun damage results in increased skin laxity, atrophy of facial tissue and descent of fatty tissue from the mid-face to the lower face. This results in hollowing of the face, sagging of facial tissue, jowls and the “turkey neck” deformity. Sculptra Aesthetic recreates the natural, healthy appearance of a youthful face by restoring its volume. Sculptra Aesthetic sculpts and restores the face to its natural beauty.
Sculptra Aesthetic allows gradual, long-lasting improvement in signs of facial aging. Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved office treatment designed to gradually correct aging-related facial volume loss and sagging of facial tissues. Unlike shorter-term filler products, this product contains poly-L-lactic acid which triggers your body to create new collagen, resulting in tighter and fuller facial tissues for up to two years. Sculptra Aesthetic treatment results in gradual, progressive restoration of facial volume and the facial contours associated with youth.
Most patients will require 3 – 4 treatment sessions in the office, each separated by one month. You can return to work or your daily activities the next day. Creation of new collagen takes place gradually during the course of treatment resulting in long-lasting improvement in facial contours. Typical goals of Sculptra Aesthetic treatment include filling of hollow temples, augmentation of the cheekbones or filling in hollowness of the lower cheek area, accentuation of the jawline and filling of the nasolabial folds.
