Sculptra® Aesthetic: Youthful Skin Starts Within

Inova Medical Spa is pleased to now offer Sculptra® Aesthetic, an FDA-approved cosmetic filler that can be used to restore facial volume lost due to aging or illness. It contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production and can be used to treat deep lines, creases, and folds. Results can last up to two years.

Here’s what you need to know about this new service:

How many Sculptra® injections should I get?

In most cases, three injections over the course of three to four months are necessary to see maximum results and benefits will be seen gradually throughout the treatment cycle.

How does Sculptra® work?

Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are liquid or gel substances which minimize the appearance of lines by pushing up the dermis space beneath wrinkles and creases. These results appear immediately and can last up to several months.

As a PLLA collagen stimulator, Sculptra® Aesthetic is different. Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Sculptra® Aesthetic stimulates your body’s natural collagen production. It works within the deep dermis of the skin vs. topically to help revitalize collagen production and restore your skin’s inner structure and facial volume. As the Sculptra® Aesthetic PLLA micro-particles are absorbed, they help to rebuild the lost collagen.

Who is an ideal candidate for this kind of filler treatment?

Those who are concerned with hollowness and/or loss of facial volume due to aging, weight loss, or illness are generally great candidates for Sculptra® Aesthetic. To determine if you’re an optimal candidate for treatment, call the spa to schedule a complimentary consultation.

When will I see results?

Benefits will be seen gradually throughout the treatment cycle, but typically take 4 – 6 months depending on factors such as volume loss and age. Full results are expected 9 months post treatment.
