Sculptra® Aesthetic (poly-L-lactic acid) is a longer-lasting volumizing agent.
Collagen breakdown over time causes decreased skin thickness, the formation of wrinkles, and the loss of firm texture to the skin.
Replacing volume by collagen stimulation using Sculptra® Aesthetic can lead to a dramatically improved, youthful appearance. Sculptra® Aesthetic can replace the decreased volume caused by soft tissue, fat, and bone loss, allowing skin to “re-plump” appropriately.
Areas frequently targeted for Sculptra® Aesthetic treatment include not only deep facial folds such as the nasolabial folds or marionette lines, but also the cheeks, jawline, and temples. Treatment of the temples and brow area can improve facial balance and improve the appearance of the skin around the eye area over time. Sculptra® Aesthetic should not be used around the lips and close to the eyes.
