Get a natural and gradual result with Sculptra®Aesthetic

Sculptra®Aesthetic (injectable poly-L-lactic acid), a cosmetic facial injectable that works gradually, resulting in a more youthful looking appearance that can last up to two years is available at Southern Surgical Arts.

SculptraAesthetic is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a treatment indicated for the correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold (smile lines) contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles which are treated with the appropriate injection technique in healthy people.

"I am very excited to offer SculptraAesthetic to patients who want to achieve natural-looking results from a cosmetic injectable that is long-lasting, said Carey Nease, MD. “SculptraAesthetic works gradually to achieve results over time, so no one will notice you had work done.”

Wrinkles and folds associated with aging become apparent, primarily through the breakdown of collagen. SculptraAesthetic helps the body replace lost collagen to provide a more youthful looking appearance.

A treatment regimen of SculptraAesthetic, an average of three injection sessions over a few months, has been shown to help correct facial lines and wrinkles by replacing lost collagen over time to provide noticeable results that can last up to two years. SculptraAesthetic is made from poly-L-lactic acid, which has been safely used for the past 25 years in resorbable stitches.  It is biocompatible (a material that does not harm the body) and biodegradable (able to be broken down by the body). Injectable poly-L-lactic acid has also been widely used in Europe for more than a decade for cosmetic treatment.

In a pivotal trial with SculptraAesthetic, swelling and tenderness were the most common adverse events reported (81%).

Results from a recent study conducted for the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) and Sanofi US showed that both injectable users and women considering a medical anti-aging treatment prefer gradual results that last two years (75 percent) as opposed to immediate results that last one year (25 percent).
