What is Sculptra Aesthetic?
Sculptra Aesthetic is a new type of synthetic facial injection that encourages the body to replace lost collagen. The treatment usually involves a course of facial injections that are injected just below the surface of the skin, offering clients natural-looking results over time. By increasing the amount of collagen in the skin, shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds may be reversed. The treatment also has the effect of correcting fat loss and natural age-related bone loss.
What to Expect
Sculptra Aesthetic generally consists of three injection sessions over a few months. The professional will inject the area of fat loss in your face, below the surface of the skin. Directly following the treatment, you are likely to experience swelling from the injection and water solution. The swelling should go down after a few days.
You need to be aware that Sculptra Aesthetic takes time to repair the areas of depression, as it is working to increase the thickness of the skin by producing the collagen which has been lost. The results tend to come about gradually; however, individual results can vary. Once you have reached the desired look, it should be semi-permanent and can last up to two years. However, you may need minor touch-ups.
Benefits of Sculptra Aesthetic

Possible Side Effects
Although the treatment requires no skin test, there are a few things to consider. For instance, if you have any allergies, please advise the clinician. It’s also helpful to have a general idea of any possible side effects. Minor side effects can include:
- Discomfort around the injection site
If you use an ice pack immediately, some of these effects can be reduced.
