Welcome to the New Age of Anti-Aging
At the Advanced Clinics, we know that aging happens slowly, subtly, and gradually. Shouldn’t your anti-aging approach be just as subtle?
Introducing Sculptra Aesthetic
Sculptra Aesthetic is not an overnight miracle or a quick-fix. Instead, it’s a facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid that gives you subtle results over time. How? By replacing lost collagen with a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades.
Sculptra is best thought of as a catalyst. In other words, what you are injecting is not the actual “plumping” material. Rather, Sculptra Aesthetic acts by stimulating the facial tissues to gradually create and lay down extra collagen, which is the bodies natural filler. The improvement occurs gradually over about five months, not right away, permitting you to make a slow and steady change, not an overnight metamorphosis.
Collagen is a key structural component that keeps skin youthful looking and smooth. But as you age, your body’s collagen production decreases, and you may begin to see wrinkles. By replacing that collagen, you can correct those shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds, giving you a more natural-looking appearance – without giving you away.*
Where Can Sculptra Be Used?
Sculptra Aesthetic works to replace lost collagen in a series of treatments administered by a Sculptra trained physician. On average, three injection sessions are needed over a period of a few months, though the number of injection sessions and the number of injections per session vary from person to person. Sculptra Aesthetic is used within the deep dermis to correct the following:
Deep folds between the nose and the mouth (nasolabial folds) also called smile lines
The lines framing your mouth (marionette lines)
* The safety and effectiveness of Sculptra Aesthetic have not been evaluated in areas other than nasolabial wrinkles and folds in clinical trials.
