The loss of collagen through aging starts to make our skin loose, sagging, and lose its structure. To help your skin retain its composition, collagen production needs to stay consistent. This can be done with the help of the Sculptra Aesthetic.

I've been going to Dr Ness for 5 years. I have a family history of melanoma and she takes great care of me. As an extra bonus, I started using her skin care products a few months ago and my skin looks better than it has in years!

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable treatment approved by the FDA for use in gradually replacing lost collagen in the face. The gel formula is made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) which is a collagen stimulator. By stimulating collagen, Sculptra can restore the skin’s inner structure and facial volume to combat aging signs. Sculptra is used to treat smile lines, marionette lines, and chin wrinkles in both men and women.

How Does Sculptra Work?

The Sculptra aesthetic works as a collagen stimulator. Unlike hyaluronic acid, collagen stimulators diminish wrinkles by restoring deep underlying structures of the skin. Due to this, the results from Sculptra appear gradually. As the Sculptra aesthetic microparticles are absorbed by the tissues, collagen is rebuilt. The Sculptra treatment typically involves three injection sessions over a course of three to four months. The results from this treatment have been shown to last for up to two years.

Sculptra Maintenance

After the Sculptra treatment, you are free to go about your normal day. Some swelling may occur at the injection sites but should subside within a could of days. Some mild-to-moderate bruising and tenderness are also common. Results from Sculptra last on average for two years, to maintain the results you can get repeat treatments. The Sculptra Aesthetic can be done in combination with other facial treatments for enhanced results. Also, Dr. Ness can recommend some products from her award-winning skincare line.
