I’d like to tell you about the results of my extensive experience with Sculptra® Aesthetic for non-invasive cosmetic rejuvenation of the face and hands. It is, in my opinion, the greatest advancement in cosmetic fillers developed in the last 25 years. Sculptra® Aesthetic has been FDA approved since 2004 and used in Europe for over 15 years. I have performed over 4,000 treatments and the results have been tremendous.
Unlike hyaluronic acid products such as Juvéderm and Restylane which are “passive” fillers, Sculptra® Aesthetic is a collagen stimulator used to diminish facial wrinkles by helping to restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin. Results appear gradually over the treatment regime (typically three injections over the course of three to four months) and can last up to two years. The procedure takes minutes, is essentially pain free with little or no downtime.
As a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, Sculptra® Aesthetic is different. It works with your body within the deep dermis, rather than topically, to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume. As the Sculptra® Aesthetic PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they stimulate collagen production. Rebuilt collagen strands begin gradually helping to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds. Sculptra® Aesthetic is not used for the treatment of fine lines or for lip augmentation.
I have developed a “refined technique” for the injection of Sculptra® Aesthetic and have been designated a “Master Trainer” for GALDERMA. I provide technique instruction to other medical professionals who then travel nationwide providing injection training on how to inject this product for the most optimal results.
