Sculptra ® Aesthetic is a dermal filler that works by stimulating collagen production moderately over time. It is made from a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body. As the body absorbs the poly-L-lactic acid, it creates a tissue lifting and thickening effect which results to increased tissue volume as lost collagen replaces itself.
Originally developed for the restoration and/or correction of the signs of facial fat loss (lipoatrophy) in people with human immunodeficiency virus, Sculptra® Aesthetic is also appropriate for people with healthy immune systems as a one-time treatment regimen of up to 4 injection sessions that are scheduled about 3 weeks apart for correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold contour deficiencies.
Patients begin to see the results of collagen stimulation within a few weeks of injection, and results may last for up to three years after the initial treatment.
Individual results may vary. This is an unretouched photo. Results after 25 months.
