Sculptra® Aesthetic is now being offered by Dr. Mark E. Richards at Ageless Impressions Plastic Surgery Institute, after recent approval by the FDA for cosmetic use. This dermal filler can help you regain a more youthful, refreshed appearance with long-lasting results. Although the effects of Sculptra® Aesthetic are not immediately evident, the treatment is designed to improve facial areas targeted for rejuvenation over time. This gradual enhancement is due to the stimulation of collagen growth in the treatment areas. As the collagen is rebuilt, wrinkles and hollow areas of the face can become fuller for a healthier, more youthful appearance. In some cases, patients have been able to enjoy the benefits of Sculptra® Aesthetic for up to 2-5 years!
Dr. Richards is a Sculptra® Aesthetic–trained physician and is utilizing this dynamic treatment option for those patients looking to replace and restore collagen and deep soft tissue that is often lost as a result of the natural aging process. Sculptra® Aesthetic is advantageous in the correction of facial folds, hollows in the cheeks, wrinkles, and other contour deficiencies of the face. It’s known for its ability to gradually create attractive natural-looking results that can last well over 2 years. For most patients, a treatment regimen of 3 sessions dispersed over a period of 5 months is suggested to garner optimum results. Sculptra® Aesthetic is comprised of poly-L-lactic acid, or PLLA, which is naturally absorbed by the body and has been used safely in medicine for over 30 years.
