Why Sculptra® Aesthetic?

Over time, your skin loses its full, firm, youthful appearance as a result of natural aging. As the skin starts thinning and losing its natural elasticity, it becomes loose and starts to wrinkle. You also gradually lose the fatty tissue that helps to fill out your face, causing the skin to sag and wrinkle even more.

The loss of facial volume can make your face look thin and narrow, with sunken cheeks – sometimes to the extent of making you look older than you actually are.

Sculptra is a simple, injectable volumizing treatment that works by stimulating the build up of the body’s natural collagen to help smooth out lines and wrinkles. It also helps to restore lost facial volume to give you a fuller, younger-looking face. The enhancement is long lasting and looks completely natural.
