Sculptra Injections Can Reduce Facial Contours

Years of smiling and laughing can be great for your heart and mind, but not so great for your face. Deep nasolabial fold contour defenciencies (aka smile lines) begin forming for many in their late 20s and early 30s. Sculptra Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid to help replace lost collagen in that area of the face.

Sculptra

Collagen is a key structural component that keeps skin looking youthful. As you age, your body’s collagen production decreases and shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds will being to appear. These signs of aging can be reduced by Sculptra Aesthetic injections. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades.

Dr. Lucas mainly uses Sculptra Aesthetic for patients who need volume replacement to zones of the face, not as a material to fill lines like the nasolabial fold or lips. Its advantage is the ability to add volume over time to enhance diminished or hollowed temples, to elevate and enhance the cheek area, to add shape and volume to the lower jaw line to reduce jowling, and to correct contour deformities from excessive fat loss.

Sculptra Aesthetic works to replace lost collagen in a series of treatments. On average, three injection sessions are needed over a period of a few months. However, this number varies by person.
