What is Sculptra® Aesthetic?
Sculptra® Aesthetic is a proven product in the field of anti-aging products. As an alternative to fillers that use hyaluronic acid, Shereen Timani, M.D. offers her patients at Johns Creek Dermatology Sculptra® Aesthetic, a synthetic injectable filler composed of poly-L-lactic acid, which may be used on patients with healthy immune systems. It works gradually to fill depressions in the skin by replacing lost collagen and also stimulates the body to produce its own collagen. A standard treatment involves three injection sessions over a few months and lasts up to two years. Sculptra® Aesthetic is most appropriately used in the lower half of the face and is intended to correct shallow to deep nasolabial fold contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles. As compared to other dermal fillers that produce near immediate results, the results of this product typically take at least a few months to appear.
How Does it Work?
Injected into the deep dermis, Sculptra® Aesthetic replaces the collagen that has been lost due to aging. By reinforcing the collagen structure of your facial tissues, this product gradually and subtly improves your skin, softening deep wrinkles and folds.
When Will I See Results?
Results are not seen immediately. While some results may be noticeable within the first few weeks, Sculptra® Aesthetic is designed to improve the appearance of your skin over a long period of time by targeting the underlying causes of wrinkles and fine lines, increasing collagen production.
How Long Does it Last?
The staff at Johns Creek Dermatology will help schedule all three treatments. The results typically last for up to two years.
Aftercare and Recovery
Each treatment will take about fifteen to twenty minutes, with little or no downtime. Common side effects include injection site pain, bruising, bleeding, itching, swelling, or bumps under the skin of the treated area.
Each patient is unique; therefore, results may vary.
