Sculptra Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-lactic acid which helps replace lost collagen. It helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that appear with aging by replacing lost collagen. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades.
Sculptra Aesthetic is the first facial injectable that gives you subtle results over time replacing lost collagen and giving you a more natural looking appearance. A full treatment of Sculptra Aesthetic, which requires an average of three injection sessions over a few months, can last up to two years.
Sculptra Aesthetic is a facial injectable that works gradually in a series of treatments on average, three injection sessions over a few months for a subtle, more youthful looking appearance.
Sculptra Aesthetic is made from a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body as it works to replace lost collagen. Poly-L-lactic acid has been used safely for decades to dissolvable stitches and as a facial injectable since 1999 in over 30 countries.
Sculptra Aesthetic targets the underlying causes of the signs of facial aging. It begins to work within the deep dermis, where your skin's structure is reinforced as Sculptra Aesthetic helps to replace lost collagen. This reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness of your shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that have depleted over time. The result- Sculptra Aesthetic is different because it gradually and subtly corrects these facial wrinkles and folds. This can provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance that can last up to two years.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION FOR SCULPTRA AESTHETIC
Safety and effectiveness of Sculptra Aesthetic have not been evaluated in areas other than nasolabial wrinkles and folds in clinical trials.
Individual results and treatment sessions may vary.
You should not use Sculptra Aesthetic if you are allergic to any ingredient of the product or have a history of keloid formation or hypertrophic scarring. Sculptra Aesthetic should not be injected while you have an active skin infection or inflammation in the treatment area and should not be injected into the red area of the lip. Use in the skin near the eyes is also not recommended.
Side effects of Sculptra Aesthetic may include injection site discomfort, redness, bruising, bleeding, itching, and swelling. Other side effects may include small lumps under the skin that are sometimes noticeable when pressing on the treated area. Larger lumps, some with delayed onset with or without inflammation or skin discoloration, have also been reported. In a key clinical study the numbers of small and larger lumps were low and most resolved without treatment.
INTENDED USE / INDICATIONS
Sculptra® Aesthetic is intended for use in people with healthy immune systems as one-time treatment regimen of up to 4 injection sessions that are scheduled about 6-8 weeks apart for correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles in which deep dermal grid pattern (cross-hatch) injection technique is appropriate.
Dr. Bouzaglou has been performing Sculptra injections to correct volume loss in many patients since January of 2008. We have found that the majority of patients require an average of 4 vials total to achieve their desired result. Each treatment vial is reconstituted to a total of 8 cc’s with bacteriostatic water. During the first treatment session 2 vials are used. Typically 6-8 weeks later the third vial is injected and 6-8 weeks later a 4th vial is injected. We have seen excellent results!
Treatment sessions for Sculptra aesthetic are performed by Dr. Bouzaglou, in the safety and privacy of our Center for Plastic Surgery.
