The collagen beneath the skin is a key element that provides volume and gives shape to your face. At about age 30, collagen begins to break down. As a result, wrinkles, lines and folds gradually appear and worsen with time.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra™ Aesthetic is a new facial injectable treatment indicated 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. It works gradually to replace collagen that is lost during the aging process.
How is Sculptra Different?
Most injectables can fill wrinkles, lines and folds but Sculptra works differently. It gradually replaces lost collagen and provides structure that lets your new look emerge more discretely. Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid, or PLLA. It is biocompatible, which means it will not harm your body.
How Long Can Sculptra Last?
Sculptra™ gradually erases folds and depressions in your face, and it can last up to two years.
Dr. William Heimer was one of the first surgeons in the United States to use Sculptra™ in his practice, and since then has been called upon to instruct other physicians it its use. Contact Dr. Heimer’s office for more information about Sculptra™.
