An Injectable Biostimulator in Lakeway, TX

In the world of dermal fillers, Sculptra® Aesthetic stands out as a product that stimulates rejuvenation from within. Normally, fillers diminish wrinkles and restore volume by directly plumping up the skin. Sculptra® Aesthetic is different. As a type of biostimulatory injectable, it doesn’t just fill — it triggers collagen production in your skin to give you a naturally youthful look.

One of the primary causes of facial wrinkles and sagging skin is the loss of collagen, the skin’s structural protein. It’s normal for collagen production to decline with age, but there are also ways to slow down and offset this process. One way is with cosmetic treatments like Sculptra® Aesthetic, available at Wink Medical Aesthetics in Lakeway, TX.

What Is Sculptra® Aesthetic?

Sculptra® Aesthetic is a long-lasting and semi-permanent biostimulatory filler developed to restore facial fullness and create smooth, wrinkle-free skin.

This FDA-approved product works with your skin’s natural collagen production process. By evenly injecting Sculptra® Aesthetic into different areas of the face, we can counteract global volume loss, treat widespread skin laxity and diminish prominent wrinkling. It is an ideal choice for patients who have lost volume in the lower third of their face or around the temples.

The Sculptra® Aesthetic treatment takes place over several sessions, and the results come on gradually over six to twelve weeks. Although patience is needed with this treatment, the wait is worthwhile because you will enjoy your results for two to four years.

What Makes Sculptra® Aesthetic Different?

Many injectable fillers work by literally filling up crevices and hollows with hydrating ingredients. Sculptra® Aesthetic, on the other hand, creates a smoother and fuller appearance by boosting the body’s natural production of skin-tightening collagen.

Because it rejuvenates using the body’s natural processes, the results last much longer than with other popular fillers — two to four years instead of six to 12 months.

The Science

The active ingredient in Sculptra® Aesthetic is poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). It is a synthetic polymer, similar in structure to absorbable sutures.

When injected into the skin, PLLA initially triggers an inflammatory response that prompts the body to break it down and absorb it. Because of its large molecular size, its breakdown is slow and gradual, occurring over several months. This, in turn, stimulates the body’s healing response, including the production of new collagen. New collagen means tighter, smoother and younger-looking skin.

Although poly-L-lactic acid is a synthetic material, it is biocompatible, biodegradable and does not cause an immunological reaction. It has been tested thoroughly in clinical trials for safety and efficiency.

The Results

Sculptra® Aesthetic can correct global volume loss, especially in the lower third of the face. More specifically, it can help improve:

  • Smile lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Cheek wrinkles
  • Hollowed cheeks
  • Hollowed temples
  • Chin wrinkles
  • Mild jowls
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Dull skin tone

You may notice greater fullness two to three days post-treatment, but this is primarily due to your body’s inflammatory response to the product. Full results appear gradually over several weeks and can last for many years.

How many treatments will I need?

Most clients need three Sculptra® Aesthetic treatment sessions to achieve their desired results. These sessions need to be spaced two to four weeks apart. That means you will complete your entire course of treatment over several months.

How long do the results last?

Your results will last for at least two years, but many patients enjoy their results for four years and longer. You may benefit from a touch-up treatment once a year to maintain your results. The FDA has approved Sculptra for Cheek Wrinkles to lasts up to 2 years.

Is Sculptra® Aesthetic safe?

Sculptra® Aesthetic was approved by the FDA in 2004. When it is administered by an experienced and skilled medical aesthetician, it is a safe and effective treatment with minimal risks and side effects.

Is Sculptra® Aesthetic better than fillers?

Sculptra® Aesthetic can be a better option for patients with global loss of facial volume in the lower third of the face. It can also be a better option for those who want longer-lasting results. Otherwise, all injectables come with their own benefits and downsides that we can discuss with you during your consultation.

Can Sculptra® Aesthetic be combined with other treatments?

Sculptra® Aesthetic can be combined with many other treatments available at Wink Medical Aesthetics, including hyaluronic acid fillers, Botox or Dysport, and laser treatments. A personalized treatment plan that addresses your concerns holistically can help enhance your overall results and achieve a significantly more youthful, refreshed appearance without surgery.
