Discover how Sculptra Aesthetic works and find out if it’s right for helping you achieve your anti-aging and aesthetic goals.
The Sculptra Aesthetic difference
Many of the dermal fillers we offer plump up sagging skin and smooth lines and wrinkles with hyaluronic acid — a compound that occurs naturally in younger skin to keep your skin hydrated. After hyaluronic acid filler injections, results are visible immediately, but after several months (in most cases) your body absorbs the hyaluronic acid and you need a touch-up treatment.
Sculptra Aesthetic works differently, giving you a more youthful appearance subtly and gradually over time. The ingredients in Sculptra Aesthetic help stimulate your body’s production of collagen — a major part of the underlying support structure of young, firm, wrinkle-free skin.
As you build new collagen from the deeper layers of tissue, your skin volume improves, wrinkles and lines become less visible, and you enjoy the results for two years or longer. In fact, 80% of people who received Sculptra Aesthetic dermal filler injections were still satisfied with their results 25 months after their last treatment!
FDA-approved to replace lost collagen
Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved dermal filler that treats the underlying cause of facial wrinkles — lost collagen — and helps rebuild it. Sculptra Aesthetic contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which is a collagen stimulator. When your provider at Harmony Aesthetics Center injects this dermal filler into the areas around your nose, mouth, and chin, the PLLA promotes new collagen growth, and smile lines, marionette lines, and chin wrinkles gradually fade away.
PLLA micorparticles get absorbed into dermal tissue where they stimulate new collagen production. As collagen rebuilds under your skin’s surface, you notice more volume and fewer wrinkles and folds in the treated areas around your nose, mouth, and chin. The PLLA microparticles are biocompatible and biodegradable, so you know you’re undergoing a safe, yet highly effective treatment.
Appear more youthful without looking overdone
One of the things our patients love about Sculptra Aesthetic is that it gives you a more youthful appearance without looking like you’ve had work done. Results are subtle, rather than obvious, which is a priority for many women and men who want to enhance their appearance.
Everyone is different and we customize your Sculptra Aesthetic treatment to your individual needs. Three injections at each appointment over a period of a few months is typically all it takes to give you a more youthful appearance for more than two years. That’s all there is to it — just a few simple injections to provide you with years of looking and feeling your best.
Restore your self-confidence and your youthful appearance without surgery or extensive downtime. In fact, you can apply makeup a few hours after your treatment, so you can get back to your busy schedule without interruption.
If you’re considering dermal fillers, and you want long-lasting, natural-looking results, Sculptra Aesthetic may be your ideal solution.
