Sculptra® Aesthetic is a facial injectable that is FDA approved and indicated for the correction of shallow to deep nasolabial folds (i.e., smile lines), contour deficiencies, and other deeper facial wrinkles.
Sculptra®, also known by many as the “liquid facelift”. It works by filling in lines and wrinkles by an innovative process that stimulating the body to produce its own new collagen and underlying tissue, thereby creating a fuller, more youthful appearance. In other words, it induces the body to produce more collagen and not just fill the wrinkle with a substance like Hyaluronic Acid which just fills the space for a shorter period.
During the Sculptra® procedure, a patient is numbed 15-30 minutes prior with topical numbing cream and given a series of injections in the desired area. The substance used in Sculptra®, poly-L-lactic acid – a synthetic version of a substance that is naturally produced by muscles during exercise which has proven positive benefits. It has been studied and used in plastic and reconstructive surgery for more than 20 years. All Sculptra® treatments at MD Aesthetica are performed by Dr. Lyos, a triple board certified plastic surgeon in Houston, TX.
Sculptra® gives excellent results in treating most parts of the face including the areas around the eyes and lips, between the mouth and nose, cheeks and neck, and even the temples. It adds volume to the cheeks, to folds around the chin, and to hollow areas around the eyes and really is a great option to slow down facial ageing and the effects of collagen loss. We typically recommend one vial per decade of age for a patient’s first treatment with smaller maintenance refreshes every few years in smaller quantities.
Results are natural-looking and appear gradually over a few weeks’ time. Sculptra® is not just a filler but also a catalyst to induce collagen production which takes time. Sculptra® is amazingly the only facial injectable approved by the FDA to last more than two years as the this newly produced collagen is durable.
Side effects of a Sculptra® procedure are minimal, other than short-term swelling and redness following the injection. This swelling and redness almost always goes away quickly within 1-2 days.
