Fight facial aging at the source. Sculptra Aesthetic is a unique facial injectable that targets the underlying causes of facial aging. If you want to turn back the clock on your look, call us at Abadir Associates and ask about Sculptra Aesthetic.
What Is Sculptra Aesthetic?
Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable filler made from poly-L-lactic acid (a synthetic sugar material that has been safely used for decades in resorbable stitches and as a filler in many countries since 1999). It is biodegradable and biocompatible.
Sculptra works differently than other dermal fillers. It reinforces the skin’s structure by encouraging replacement of lost collagen deep within the dermis. This establishes a better foundation, which can gradually restore the look of fullness to the face. Because Scuptra Aesthetic corrects the cause of wrinkles, it can last much longer than fillers that just fill in wrinkles. With proper treatment, results can last more than two years. The results are very natural-looking.
The treatment is administered in a series of two to four treatment sessions. Generally, these sessions are spaced one to two months apart (we’ll create an individualized treatment plan with you).
Where In the Face Is Sculptra Aesthetic Used?
Sculptra Aesthetic is a great treatment for generalized facial aging. It can be used to lift hollows in the temples and cheeks, which improves the correction of the nasolabial folds (also called smile lines), lines around the mouth (marionette lines) and jowls. We have a unique treatment that we’ve created that uses Sculptra and Thermage as part of a treatment regimen for sagging necks.
What Should I Expect During My Sculptra Aesthetic Treatment?
Sculptra Aesthetic is administered by injections into the skin. The number and placement of the injections will vary depending on your treatment needs. After treatment, you can return to your regular activities immediately. Many patients have a bit of swelling. As this fades, your lines and hollows will temporarily return until the collagen levels build to smooth the area. You’ll start to see results in a few weeks.
This treatment requires no downtime. The most common side effects are redness, swelling, tenderness, bruising, bleeding, itching or pain at the injection site, etc.
Both Drs. Michelle and Dale Abadir are highly experienced with using Sculptra Aesthetic to treat facial aging. We also take a unique approach to this treatment by pairing it with Thermage to treat aging faces and necks. This revolutionary technique can drastically improve the appearance of sagging faces and necks without surgery.
