Skin rejuvenation with injectable treatments isn’t always immediate. Sculptra Aesthetic is a facial injectable that provides subtle results over time. Although you may not see improvement instantly, results are long-lasting and it provides a natural appearance that doesn’t look overdone.
What is Sculptra® Aesthetic?
Sculptra Aesthetic is made from poly-L-lactic acid and when injected, it stimulates your body to produce new collagen, which supports healthy skin. With a new collagen structure, it works within the deep dermis of your skin, providing support to restore fullness to deep facial wrinkles and folds that have depleted over time. This particular injectable treatment is suitable for marionette lines (lines that frame your mouth), nasolabial folds, or smile lines (deep folds between the nose and the mouth). It also can be used to restore volume in the chin and jawline, as well as filling temporal hollows and improving the appearance of décolletage. The Sculptra Aesthetic experience is a gradual process that works in a series of treatments, generally three injection appointments over a few months, achieving a naturally subtle youthful appearance; results that can last up to two years..
The number of injections per visit with Dr. Kestin will vary depending on your desired results. The degree of correction will be discussed in depth during your initial consultation to help decide what course of action is right for you. Dr. Kestin usually recommends a topical anesthetic to ensure you’re completely comfortable during your Sculptra treatment. Following treatment, you will see visible results within a few weeks, but it is necessary to complete the full treatment process recommended by Dr. Kestin to achieve premiere results. During the course of treatment, he may adjust your original injection plan to help improve your final outcome and individual results. Allowing for gradual changes during treatment process will ensure you’re fully satisfied with the end result.
Right after treatment, patients experience swelling, which heals itself within a few days. The most common side effects include discomfort, redness, swelling, pain, bruising at the injection site. Bumps under the skin in the targeted areas may also appear, but these are generally mild in case and resolve within a few weeks. Sculptra Aesthetic is a safe and effective way to gradually restore your younger appearance.
