Another semi-permanent and tissue stimulating filler, Sculptra Aesthetic is a poly-L-lactic acid filler that delivers long-lasting volumizing results. Poly-L-lactic acid is a substance commonly used in suture material that is safely broken down by the body over time.
Sculptra Aesthetic is usually performed in a series of three or more treatments spaced several months apart. Although results are not visible immediately, improvements will be gradual and improve over time. The outcome may last for up to two years or more after several treatments. Sculptra Aesthetic is ideal for restoring plumpness to sunken cheeks, temporal hollows, softening acne scars and gently lifting sagging tissues. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, is not appropriate for fine lines, hollows under the eyes or augmenting the lips.
