New Wrinkle Eraser: Sculptra®Aesthetic

Dr. .J Gregory Kjar, plastic surgeon with Candessa Surgical and Laser Aesthetics explains how it works.

Sculptra®Aesthetic (injectable poly-L-lactic acid) was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a treatment for the correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold (smile lines) contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles which are treated with the appropriate injection technique in healthy people.

Sculptra Aesthetic is the only facial injectable that works gradually with results that can last up to two years.

Sculptra Aesthetic works gradually, resulting in a more youthful looking appearance without making it look like you’ve had work done.

As we age, facial wrinkles and folds begin to show in part because collagen beneath the skin’s surface starts to break down. Sculptra Aesthetic helps to replace lost collagen.

Results from a recent study conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery and sanofi-aventis U.S. showed that both injectable users and women considering a medical anti-aging treatment prefer gradual results that last two years (75 percent) as opposed to immediate results that last one year (25 percent).

A treatment regimen of Sculptra Aesthetic requires an average of three injection sessions over a few months.

Sculptra Aesthetic is made from poly-L-lactic acid, which has been safely used for the past 25 years in resorbable stitches. It is biocompatible (a material that does not harm the body) and biodegradable (able to be broken down by the body).

This injectable is only sold to plastic surgeons and dermatologists

The injection is done in our office. Patients do not experience any discomfort because lidocaine is injected beforehand.
