Collagen is essential in maintaining smooth and youthful-looking skin. However as you age, the production of collagen in the body decreases to give wrinkles. It is today possible to remove these wrinkles and fine lines by replacing all this lost collagen with Sculptra Aesthetic.

Sculptra Aesthetic is an injection where its main ingredient is poly-L-lactic acid, which helps replace lost collagen. It is biocompatible and biodegradable and helps reduce deep facial wrinkles and folds.

How it works

Once the Houston cosmetic surgeon injects, Sculptra Aesthetic, it works within the deep dermis to reinforce all the lost collagen. This helps create a foundation to make you look young once again. To date however, the safety of use of Sculptra Aesthetic has not been proven treating areas other than nasolabial wrinkles and folds.

This is why it is important that the Sculptra Aesthetic injection be given by a sculptra trained physician. Most patients require three injections sessions that are spread over a few months. However there is no fixed number of sessions and injections that a person requires per session as this varies from patient to patient.

Subtle correction of wrinkles

Though results are not instantaneous, this anti-aging procedure gradually and subtly corrects all your facial wrinkles to make you look younger for a maximum of two years. Like any cosmetic and anti-aging procedure, Sculptra Aesthetic has its share of possible side effects that includes redness, discomfort, itching, swelling, bruising and bleeding at the injection site.

However people who are allergic to any of the ingredients found in Sculptra Aesthetic and people who have a history of hypertrophic scarring and keloid formation should not use this anti aging procedure. A professional Houston plastic surgeon will be able to assess if it is safe for you to use Sculptra Aesthetic injection as an anti-aging treatment.
