Sculptra Aesthetic-Not Your Typical Filler!

November 8, 2016

Sculptra ModelCollagen loss and volume depletion are hallmarks of facial aging that impact virtually all of us. As collagen breaks down you will notice the appearance of the skin changes: wrinkles be more prominent, elasticity diminishes, and volume starts to decline. Skin care products frequently market themselves as containing or promoting facial collagen. This is because collagen is vital to keeping your skin healthy and youthful.

You may notice that unlike fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane, Sculptra Aesthetic actually promotes the growth and maintenance of facial collagen. Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable filler and is FDA Approved. It helps to stimulate the production of collagen over time and is good for patients who want to build volume in the face. Generally, Sculptra Aesthetic entails a series of treatments (3-4) separated by about six weeks. Make sure you and your physician are on the same page about what kind of results you can expect – communication is always key.
