Aging doesn’t have to look the way it used to. Aging is subtle – very gradual. Shouldn’t your anti-aging plan be just as subtle?
Introducing Sculptra® Aesthetic, an injectable semi-permanent dermal filler made of a biocompatible synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid that has been used safely for decades in resorbable stitches and as an injectable since 1999 in over 30 countries. While not an overnight miracle, it is long lasting and the first injectable that gives you subtle results over time. Sculptra® Aesthetic works by stimulating the body’s own natural collagen production to replace and multiply lost collagen. Sculptra® Aesthetic is not a quick fix, but rather gives you a more natural-looking appearance, without giving you away. Welcome to the new age of anti-age.
How Long Do Sculptra Results Last?
A full treatment of Sculptra® Aesthetic, an average of 3 injection sessions over a few months, can last 2 or more years. Individual results and treatment sessions may vary.
What Areas Can Sculptra Treat?
Sculptra® Aesthetic can help correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds (nasolabial wrinkles and folds) that appear with aging by replacing lost collagen. Not recommended for use in the lips or the periorbital area. Sculptra can also help correct deep wrinkles and creases in the décolletage (chest or cleavage area) that is common among sun-damaged and aging skin. The latest innovative use for Sculptra is MilfordMD’s Liquid Butt Lift that can help give a more plump, round look to a flat derriere or add lift and boost buttocks that have begun to sag with age.
INTENDED USE / INDICATIONS
Sculptra® Aesthetic is intended for use in people with healthy immune systems as one-time treatment regimen of up to 4 injection sessions that are scheduled about 3 weeks apart for correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles in which deep dermal grid pattern (cross-hatch) injection technique is appropriate. Sculptra Aesthetic may provide cosmetic correction of facial wrinkles with a Wrinkle Assessment Score of 2, 3, or 4 as shown in the photos in Figure 2 of the full Prescribing Information.
Important Safety Information
Indication: Sculptra® Aesthetic (injectable poly-L-lactic acid) is indicated for use in people with healthy immune systems as a single regimen for the correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles in which deep dermal grid pattern (cross-hatch) injection technique is appropriate.
Sculptra Aesthetic should not be used by people that are allergic to any ingredient of the product or have a history of keloid formation or hypertrophic scarring. Safety has not been established in patients who are pregnant, lactating, breastfeeding, or under 18 years of age.
Sculptra Aesthetic has unique injection requirements and should only be used by a trained physician. Contour deficiencies should not be overcorrected because they are expected to gradually improve after treatment.
Sculptra Aesthetic should not be injected into the blood vessels as it may cause vascular occlusion, infarction or embolic phenomena. Use at the site of skin sores, cysts, pimples, rashes, hives or infection should be postponed until healing is complete. Sculptra Aesthetic should not be injected into the red area (vermillion) of the lip or in the peri-orbital area.
The most common side effects after initial treatment include injection site swelling, tenderness, redness, pain, bruising, bleeding, itching and lumps. Other side effects may include small lumps under the skin that are sometimes noticeable when pressing on the treated area. Larger lumps, some with delayed onset with or without inflammation or skin discoloration, have also been reported.
