It is no secret that the skin changes as you get older. One of the largest changes in the skin is the loss of collagen. Starting in the thirties, collagen production wanes and lines can begin to form. By the forties and fifties, these lines can deepen, especially around your nose, mouth and cheeks. Sculptra Aesthetic offers a non-surgical way to soften deep smile lines and improve collagen production for a more youthful appearance as you grow older.

How Does Sculptra Work?

Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable dermal filler that enhances collagen production over time, using a form of Poly-L Lactic acid. This compound helps improve collagen production which can diminish deep smile lines that appear around your mouth, chin and in your cheek region. This is not an overnight change in your appearance, but a gradually smoothing of the lines as collagen levels improve.

Sculptra injections are completed in a series. Most people will have three to five injection procedures spaced at least four weeks apart. The results improve over the first few months after the first injection and can last up to two years. To maintain the results, injections are used about once a year once the effects begin to wear off.

While there are many dermal fillers available that work well on fine lines and wrinkles, Sculptra offers improvement for deeper lines that are difficult to fill using products like Juvederm. Sculptra was fully approved by the FDA in 2009 for cosmetic treatment of lines and wrinkles and has been used in many countries in Europe and around the world for over a decade. It is safe and effective, offering more natural results than some other dermal fillers that can leave the skin looking “over-stuffed” and is not prone to cause allergic reactions like some other fillers.
