Sculptra Aesthetic is a safe, synthetic, and biocompatible material that is injected below the surface of the skin. Sculptra is made up of microspheres (a spherical shell that is made of a biodegradable or restorable plastic polymer that has a very small diameter usually in the micrometer or nanometer range, and that is often filled with a substance, as a drug or antibody, for release as the shell is degraded) of poly-L-lactic acid forty to sixty microns in size. Because poly-L-lactic acid is the main ingredient in Sculptra Aesthetic, patients do not require a test for allergic reactions.
The results of Sculptra Aesthetic are not immediate. At your first treatment visit, it may appear that Sculptra Aesthetic worked immediately because of swelling from the injections and the water used to dilute Sculptra Aesthetic. A few days following the treatment, when the swelling goes down and the water is absorbed by your body, you may appear similar to as you did before your treatment. Sculptra Aesthetic takes time to gradually correct the depression in your skin.
Your doctor will decide the appropriate number of treatment sessions and the amount of Sculptra Aesthetic you will need at each session. Multiple sessions are often required and patients with severe facial volume loss may require 3 to 6 treatments.
