What is Sculptra Aesthetic?
Sculptra is a synthetic injectable material know as “poly-L-lactic acid.” Poly-L-lactic acid is biocompatible (a material that does not harm the body) and biodegradable (able to be broken down by the body). Poly-L-lactic acid has been widely used for many years in dissolvable stitches, soft tissue implants and other types of implants.
How does it work?
Sculptra Aesthetic is used to replace lost collagen through a series of treatments, with about three sessions needed on average over the course of a few months. The number of injections and sessions may vary by person.

Why does aging affect your skin?
As we age, our skin changes. It loses moisture and elasticity, fat redistributes itself, muscles and skin become more lax, and bones actually start to resorb. Wrinkles are the first signs of this aging process, with skin folds or “bags” being the more advanced signs. To prevent these advanced aging signs, speak to one our facial cosmetic surgery experts to see which treatments can improve and/or maintain your healthy skin.
