Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable that gradually builds collagen that has been lost due to aging or weight loss. Sculptra Aesthetic is not a hyaluronic acid injectable gel, like Juvederm or Restylane, rather a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator.
As the PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they begin to work with your body to restore your skins structure and volume.
Sculptra can be used anywhere in the face, most often in the temples to restore hollowing and volume loss, mid face in areas that filler may not work well in as well as the chest or neck for rejuvenation in combination with other procedures. 3-6 vials of Sculptra are used for the face over the course of 2-3 visits.
Sculptra Aesthetic is also used correctively or cosmetically to enhance the buttocks. With a series of injections, patients can see a fuller, more shapely behind with no downtime.
This procedure has grown more and more popular as patients are seeking non surgical options for the results they want.
Sculptra buttocks enhancements typically need 8-30 vials of product, varying based on the results the patient desires. Your provider will outline the number of vials injected over the course of 2-4 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart with results that can last 2 years or more.
This is a completely non- surgical approach to giving you a fuller, more curvy behind or correcting cellulite and divets.
When Sculptra Aesthetic is injected, you will initially see fullness in the injection site, however that will go down after a few days as the product begins to break down and begin to stimulate the production of your own collagen and fat.
