Sculptra® Aesthetic can easily erase decades off your apparent age; you will look as young as you feel. The results are dramatic and provide a youthful, symmetric, invigorated look. Sculptra® Aesthetic is different from other dermal fillers in that it is not a gel that is injected to erase a specific wrinkle or fold. Sculptra® Aesthetic works by stimulating the body to create its own new collagen. It provides an overall rejuvenation of the face. This creates a more gradual and very natural increase in facial volume which is why it is so popular among celebrities. Each day that passes will result in additional collagen synthesis. You are apparently “growing younger”. The new collagen synthesis will cause the skin to reflect more light which gives skin an overall more youthful and rested appearance. The maximum effect is realized at about week eight after injection and the results will last up to 2 years.
What to expect after treatment
After Sculptra® Aesthetic injection mild swelling may occur and will usually subsides in 1 to 2 days. It is also not uncommon to have some mild bruising after the procedure, which can last a few days. Patients should avoid Aspirin and alcohol 72 hours prior to the procedure to reduce the likelihood of bruising. Rare complications can include nodules (bumps under the skin), which usually resolve with firm message and dissipate with time.
