Q: What is SculptraAesthetic?
A: SculptraAesthetic, or injectable poly-L-lactic acid, is different from traditional fillers. It replaces lost collagen by treating the underlying causes of the signs of facial aging. It can give you noticeable results that emerge subtly and can provide a more youthful-looking appearance that can last up to 2 years. Of course, individual results may vary.
SculptraAesthetic provides structure that lets your new look emerge more discreetly. And because it works gradually, you can get noticeable, yet natural-looking results.
Q: How does SculptraAesthetic work?
A: Facial collagen loss is a key factor in an aging appearance. Collagen acts as a support structure for your skin. As time goes on, collagen isn’t replaced as readily as it once was. SculptraAesthetic begins to work within the deep dermis, where your skin’s structure is reinforced as it helps to replace lost collagen.
This reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness of facial wrinkles and folds that have depleted over time.
Q: The TV commercial/print ad mentioned natural, gradual results. Can you tell me more?
A: SculptraAesthetic takes time to gradually replace lost collagen and can give you a more refined, naturallooking, youthful appearance. SculptraAesthetic is designed to give you noticeable results that emerge subtly. The gradual results won’t give you away.
If you want a look that’s not obvious and doesn’t look like you’ve had work done, then SculptraAesthetic may be a good option for you. Unlike other injectable treatments, SculptraAesthetic gradually replaces lost collagen. The gradual results are natural looking and can last up to 2 years. Of course, individual results may vary.
We can arrange for our Aesthetic Nurse to determine if SculptraAesthetic may be right for you. We will want to determine if you are allergic to any of the SculptraAesthetic ingredients or if you are prone to scarring or keloid formation, which is the overgrowth of collagen at the site of an injury.
Q: What can I expect after treatment?
A: After your first treatment, it may appear that SculptraAesthetic worked immediately because of the swelling from the injections and water used to dilute the product. In a few days, after your body absorbs the water and the swelling goes down, you may look as you did before the treatment. Be patient, SculptraAesthetic takes time to work without looking like you’ve had work done.
Q: How many treatments are required and how much will it cost?
A: SculptraAesthetic treatment cost varies according to individual patient needs. The total cost will depend in part on the number of visits needed and the amount of SculptraAesthetic required. During your consultation, our Nurse will give you a facial assessment and we can provide you with an estimate.
The length of time required to complete treatment, and the amount of SculptraAesthetic needed differs for each person. Our nurse will create a regimen that works to meet the unique needs of your face. On average, 3 treatments are given over a period of a few months. An average patient in our practice receives 2 vials, for 3-4 treatments. Each treatment is usually approximately 6 weeks apart.
When considering cost, it’s also useful to consider how long specific treatments will last. With SculptraAesthetic, the results can last up to 2 years. Of course, results and treatment sessions vary per patient. But, while considering your options, the length of time you’ll enjoy the results can be weighed along with the cost of treatment.

It should not be injected while you have an active skin infection or inflammation in the treatment area and should not be injected into the red area of the lip. Use in the skin near the eyes is not recommended.
