Sculptra® Aesthetic is natural volumizer used to add support to sagging tissues of the face.
Sculptra® Aesthetic restores the face with a natural, full and youthful look, as opposed to the sullen, sunken and sagging look that accompanies aging. It is a “secret” way for you to achieve a youthful appearance and still look like yourselves — just a lot better.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is made of a biocompatible material, poly-L-lactic acid and it is a collagen stimulator, so it is your own collagen that restores volume and youth to your face. Our clients love how Sculptra® can restore a youthful shape to their face. They are relieved by the fact that they do not have to resort to surgery as their sole choice for cosmetic facial rejuvenation. Sculptra® has been used for decades in Europe and had been approved by the FDA for the past several years for cosmetic use here in the United States. The administration of Sculptra® requires great skill and meticulous technique in order to achieve results that hide the changes in the face that are associated with aging, and yet restore a natural result, maintaining the unique anatomical characteristics of each person’s face.
Top Reasons Our Clients Like Sculptra® Aesthetic
Clients decide they want to be treated with Sculptra® Aesthetic so that they look young, yet natural and non-distorted. Sculptra® restores a facial contour that is bright, cheery, and contoured, without the risks of surgery and anesthesia. Clients often want this before special occasions like weddings, reunions, graduations, anniversaries. The expense of Sculptra® is less than surgery and the results can last up to 2 years. Multiple treatments are required to get the best results. Some individuals require 1 to 2 sessions, while others require 3 or 4. It is a very appealing aesthetic procedure for busy individuals who cannot take off much time from their work and family obligations. Men and women, young and old can be treated. It works faster on younger patients, so patients are encouraged to have the procedure while their ability to form collagen is optimal.
Why should you choose Sculptra Aesthetic?
Real results that last!
Not all treatments or injectables are created the same. Some target different areas of the face, and, more importantly, produce different effects.
Neuromodulators work by temporarily weakening muscles, typically in the forehead, to minimize frown lines. Results appear within a couple days and can last up to a couple months.
Fillers are liquid or gel substances, like hyaluronic acid or bovine or porcine collagen, that diminish lines by pushing up the dermis space beneath wrinkles and creases. Results appear immediately and can last up to several months.
Sculptra Aesthetic is different. It works with your body within the deep dermis, rather than topically, to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume. As the Sculptra Aesthetic PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production. Rebuilt collagen strands begin gradually helping to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds.
How does Sculptra Aesthetic work?
Slow and steady strength
Sculptra Aesthetic is made with bio compatible, biodegradable,synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments administered by a trained specialist.
The specialist injects treatment within the deep dermis, where strands of collagen support your skin’s structure
Overtime, Sculptra aesthetic helps the body reproduce lost collagen.
Is Sculptra® Aesthetic a correct procedure for you?
Donna determines this by listening and taking a good history from you, to see what you want, dream of, expect, and noting your desires/tolerance for recovery time and budget. Your expectations need to be identified and clarified through the consultation process. She examines your specific anatomy, reviews your photos, discusses the Sculptra® Aesthetic procedure, and makes a specific plan of “attack” on whatever you are trying to volumize and contour. The treatment is customized and planned. The expectations are targeted, so that they are realistic, and the risks are discussed.
Clients may be bruised in the areas of treatment and a tenderness can be present, but these are temporary. Donna has her clients take a medicinal form of arnica montana to prevent and decrease any swelling and bruising.
What other procedures can complement Sculptra® Aesthetic and why would combine them?
Sculptra® Aesthetic is a volumizer that stimulates the client’s own collagen production, therefore it takes time to see youthful changes in the shape and contour of the face. Treatment results may take 6 to 8 weeks to first appear, then the results may progress over a period of several months. If a client wants an immediate change, Donna can utilize other “fillers”, such as JUVEDERM™, Restylane® and Radiesse®, depending on the anatomic area and tissue texture that you are trying to augment, shape and support in the face. These fillers can be placed beneath the skin, on top of the Sculptra®, adding support to the skin at a more superficial tissue level. The Sculptra® is placed deeper in the same plane of tissue that she works within when performing a facelift. The fillers are placed beneath the dermis, immediately under the skin to support areas where the skin may fold and buckle, such as the tear trough areas of the cheeks and the smile lines around the mouth. The fillers can be done at the time of Sculptra® or the procedures may be staged and performed on separate appointments. Since Sculptra® is placed deep, it is not used in the areas of the lips or mid forehead. Fillers can be used in the lips. Fillers in these areas enhance the results of the Sculptra® which is most frequently used in the cheeks and temporal forehead areas. Sculptra® has powerful and pleasing volume enhancement outcomes in the cheeks and temporal forehead areas of the face.
