Sculptra Aesthetic: Volume that Lasts
Often, patients come to Artisan Aesthetics Plastic Surgery & Laser Center in hopes of subtlety renewing their facial youth. Not wanting the more dramatic effects of surgical procedures, many opt for less invasive options. When looking for long-lasting, naturally appearing facial rejuvenation, Dr. Castor recommends Sculptra Aesthetic. Creating a natural volume, Sculptra Aesthetic stimulates collagen production.
One of the telltale signs of aging is the loss of facial fullness. As collagen and fatty tissues decrease, the face no longer has the youthful plump appearance. Like a balloon losing air, our face quickly loses fullness. Similar as to how a balloon deflates, the face becomes less voluminous and wrinkles become more apparent. Sculptra Aesthetic works to keep skin ‘inflated’ by targeting collagen loss.
What is Sculptra Aesthetic?
Sculptra Aesthetic is part of a new class of injectables known as bio-stimulators. Providing a gradual, yet significant improvement, Sculptra Aesthetic replaces lost volume and diminishes wrinkles by restoring the skin’s underlying foundation. As the product’s micro particles work deep within the dermis, collagen production increases—allowing Sculptra Aesthetic to naturally reinforce our skin’s structure by constructing a strong and supported collagen framework. Sculptra Aesthetic is unique in that results can last for over two years!
Where Can Sculptra Aesthetic Be Used?
Sculptra Aesthetic treats the mid to lower face:
- Nasolabial Lines: wrinkles between the mouth and nose
- Marionette Lines: lines that frame the mouth
- Chin wrinkles
What is the Average Treatment?
Performed as a series, the exact number of injections and treatment time varies depending on each patient’s specific needs. On average, Dr. Castor performs three to five treatments, spread four to eight weeks apart. As each injection builds upon the prior, it is imperative that the full series is completed.
What Can I Expect?
Lending to its natural appearance, it is important to be patient and remember that this is a product that slowly and beautifully responds over time. Immediately following, the injection site will appear plump and possibly even feel overly full—this will dissipate as Sculptra is absorbed. Unlike with other injectables, you will want to massage the injection site to help the product’s distribution.
Although we may not be able to stop the aging process—we can improve it. With the help of Sculptra Aesthetic, Dr. Castor can add long-lasting facial fullness. Visit us at one of our two offices to discover the beautiful benefits of Sculptra Aesthetic.
