Restore the Volume and Contour of Your Skin with Sculptra® Aesthetic
Are you interested in rejuvenating your face for a more youthful appearance? Plump facial features and smooth, unlined skin are two hallmarks of youth. As we age, a loss of collagen and fat can cause a sunken, drawn look, and facilitate the development of persistent wrinkles. In fact, the loss of facial volume is one the first signs of aging, starting in the mid to late thirties.
Our practice offers Sculptra® Aesthetic to our patients in Darien and throughout Fairfield County. Sculptra® Aesthetic is the best injectable treatment to restore lost facial volume. It stimulates your bodies own collagen production, naturally smoothing the skin for a soft, fresh-looking rejuvenation. Treatment is gentle and virtually painless, and the results are long lasting.
You can learn more about your candidacy for this popular and effective treatment during a consultation with our highly trained cosmetic surgeon, David Passaretti. Reach out to us today to schedule an appointment.
What is Sculptra® Aesthetic?
There are many dermal fillers on the market, but Sculptra® Aesthetic stands apart from the rest and offers unique benefits that simply can not be achieved with other fillers. The main ingredient, poly-L-lactic acid, is a biocompatible synthetic material that poses no risk of rejection by the body. In fact, it has been used safely by physicians for decades.
Unlike traditional fillers and implants, Sculptra® Aesthetic is injected deep within the skin to simulate collage production. Over time, Sculptra® Aesthetic is naturally absorbed by the body, yet your own rejuvenated collagen remains. Because of this, it provides a soft natural look, never that shiny, over-filled look that is entirely too common. Sculptra® Aesthetic is usually administered in one to four sessions, scheduled about four weeks apart. Noticeable effects typically develop within six weeks as your body creates collagen to replace lost facial volume. With proper maintenance, the results of your treatment can last for up to two years. As the results of your initial treatment begin to fade, upkeep appointments can help you maintain your rejuvenated appearance.
Benefits & Applications of Sculptra® Aesthetic
Common applications of Sculptra® Aesthetic include:
- Folds between the nose and mouth, also known smile lines
- Cheek volume
- Chin wrinkles
Many of our patients who are interested in skin tightening and toning, but not ready for a full facelift, choose Sculptra® Aesthetic to soften the signs of aging. Sculptra can frequently be combined with laser skin-resurfacing and Botox to provide a natural rejuvenation in patients not yet ready for surgery. Contact our office today to learn more about this treatment, and whether it is right for you.
Experience You Can Trust
Unlike other injectables, the proper application of Sculptra® Aesthetic requires a high degree of skill and training. Because the material is injected into a deeper layer of the skin, expert knowledge of the intricate anatomy of the face is essential. Choosing an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Passaretti minimizes the risk of unfavorable side effects, safeguards your health, and ensures that you achieve the best possible results.
