What is Sculptra® Aesthetic?
Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable poly-L-lactic acid filler that is FDA-approved for replacing lost collagen. At Capizzi, MD Cosmetic Surgery, we use Sculptra to holistically enhance areas of the body and face for our patients.
Sculptra Is Different From Other Fillers
As a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, Sculptra is different than traditional dermal fillers. It works with your body within the deep dermis to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume. As the microparticles in Sculptra are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production for 2-5 years following treatment. Rebuilt collagen gradually restores volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds.
The Sculptra Butt Lift
The Sculptra Butt Lift is a revolutionary, non-surgical alternative to a Brazilian Butt Lift. This treatment involves the use of Sculptra injections to targeted areas under the skin. This thickens the skin and stimulates deep collagen growth, resulting in a firmer feeling and more voluptuous buttocks. This is very useful when a person has very little fat to transfer to the buttocks. This lift will produce great results for people of all body types, but tends to be especially good for slim women who don’t have a large amount of body fat.
The benefits of this procedure are:
- Natural-looking results
- No general anesthesia needed
- Short recovery time
- Quick treatments
- Safe, FDA-approved injectable
- Long-lasting results for 2-5 years.
This one-time treatment regimen involves multiple injections (2-4) about 3 weeks apart. Recovery time is about 24 hours, with patients resuming all normal activities within that time. There is typically a little soreness after the procedure, and we recommend that patients do not exercise until 24 hours after the treatment.
The Sculptra Liquid Facelift
Collagen loss is one of the primary reasons we show signs of facial aging. With that in mind, Sculptra is one of the best remedies to replace lost collagen and elastin. To address facial wrinkles and folds, Sculptra Aesthetic is injected into two planes:
- On top of the bone to restore areas of bony loss: jawline, temples, cheeks, or near the nose.
- And, in fatty areas such as the cheeks, chin, or marionette lines in order to restore fullness and shape.
A one-time treatment regimen to regain facial fullness involves 2-4 injections about 3 weeks apart. Patients typically see results that improve and last for 2-5 years after treatment.
