From the diagram above it is obvious the changes that occur in our faces as we age and we lose volume. Sculptra Aesthetic is a new type of injectable therapy that helps to remedy these changes. Dr. Jacob generally performs three treatment sessions – usually 4 weeks between session one and two and 6 weeks between session two and three – making it a 10 week process. Sculptra gradually replaces lost collagen to restore a natural-looking appearance that can last up to 25 months. It is a subtle, steady response that doesn’t immediately make you look like you’ve had work done.
Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid. This has been used for many years in dissolvable stitches and medical implants. This component works within the deep dermis to replace lost collagen. As the collagen is replaced, it provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness and helps provide a more refined appearance.
The series of photographs below shows the progressive results of a series of Sculptra treatments. Now, as the holiday season is approaching, is a good time to begin this process.
