Q: What is the primary cause of facial aging?
A: 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.
Q: What is SculptraAesthetic?
A: SculptraAesthetic contains poly-L-lactic acid, or PLLA. It is a biocompatible, which means it will not harm your body. PLLA has been used for many years in dissolvable stiches and medical implants, and has been used cosmetically in Europe since 1999. It gives you natural-looking results that can last up to 2 years.
Q: How does SculptraAesthetic Work?
A: Replace: Injectable poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) – the main component of SculptraAesthetic – works within the deep dermis to replace lost collagen.
Restore: As collagen is replaced, it provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness by correcting your shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds.
Refine: This results in correction of these facial wrinkles and folds that can help provide a more refined appearance which can last up to 2 years.
Q: How many treatments are required?
A: An average number of treatment sessions of SculptraAesthetic is 3 injection sessions over a few months. The sessions are spread out this way because SculptraAesthetic gradually replaces lost collagen to restore a natural-looking appearance. The time between injection sessions gives SculptraAesthetic enough time to work so that your doctor can fine-tune your follow-up treatments.
Q: Are the results of SculptraAesthetic immediate?
A: SculptraAesthetic is a subtle, gradual treatment that doesn’t make you immediately look like you’ve had work done.
Q: How long do SculptraAesthetic treatments last?
A: SculptraAesthetic creates results that can last up to 2 years.
