Clinical trial ended at 25 months. **Safety and effectiveness of Sculptra Aesthetic have not been evaluated in areas other than nasolabial wrinkles and folds in clinical trials. HOW DOES SCULPTRA AESTHETIC WORK? Collagen is a key structural component that keeps skin youthful looking and smooth. As you age, your body’s collagen production decreases, and you may begin to see wrinkles. Sculptra Aesthetic works to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds,* as it replaces lost collagen, which can help provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance. Watch our videos in the Sculptra Aesthetic library. Sculptra Aesthetic works to replace lost collagen in a series of treatments administered by a Sculptra Aesthetic trained physician. On average, three injection sessions are needed over a period of a few months. The number of injection sessions and the number of injections per session vary from person to person. Sculptra Aesthetic works within the deep dermis Within the deep dermis, your skin’s structure is reinforced as Sculptra Aesthetic helps to replace lost collagen. This reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness of your shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds* that has been depleted over time. The result? Sculptra Aesthetic is different because it gradually and subtly corrects these facial wrinkles. This can provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance that can last more than two years.** *Safety and effectiveness of Sculptra Aesthetic have not been evaluated in areas other than nasolabial wrinkles and folds in clinical trials. **Individual results and treatment sessions may vary.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM TREATMENT

Sculptra Aesthetic is administered in a series of treatment sessions by a Sculptra Aesthetic Miami trained physician. On average, three treatment sessions are needed over a few months, but your doctor will tailor the sessions to best suit your skin and your desired outcome.

The injection process Sculptra Aesthetic is injected into the skin. The number of injections per treatment session will vary depending on the degree of correction you and your physician decide is right for you.

You can print out this instruction sheet and keep it handy so you remember to do these things every day.

HAVE AN ice pack ready GIVE YOURSELF facial massages AVOID excess sunlight and UV exposure
Within the first 24 hours of treatment, apply a cloth-wrapped ice pack to the treated area for a few minutes at a time. Never apply ice directly to the skin. The cold will help reduce common swelling. Massage the treated area for 5 minutes 5 times a day for 5 days after treatment as recommended by your physician. Protecting your skin from the sun is always important, but after treatment, excessive sunlight and UV lamp exposure should be avoided until any initial swelling and redness go away. Your doctor will provide guidelines on sunscreen protection and how to avoid excessive sunlight.

Call your doctor if you have any questions or concerns after treatment. Also, report any side effects to your doctor. Be sure to keep any follow-up appointments that may be scheduled.

FAQs

How much does Sculptra Aesthetic cost? There are a few factors that figure into how much treatment with Sculptra Aesthetic Miami will cost. Some of these include:

  • How many treatment sessions are needed
  • How much Sculptra Aesthetic Miami (number of vials) your physician uses per treatment
  • The degree of correction you and your physician decide upon
  • Your physician’s fees
  • Discounts and special offers
  • Where you live

Due to these factors and especially because Scultpra Aesthetic treatments are tailored to individual patients, cost will vary from person to person. The best way to determine your individual cost is by talking to your doctor.  How does the price of Sculptra Aesthetic Miami compare with other anti-aging treatments? Comparing the cost of facial rejuvenation options to each other can be challenging because so much depends on desired results, the amount of product your doctor recommends, your response to the treatment, the amount of time results last, and your specific physician’s fees. A treatment that lasts up to 3 to 6 months may cost less up front than one that lasts much longer, yet generally require additional treatment sessions to maintain the effect for the same duration. You may want to consider the total cost over time. When comparing the price of Sculptra Aesthetic to other injectables, it can be helpful to weigh cost against treatment duration. Of course, the best way to determine how much a treatment option will cost is to talk to your physician and discuss your needs. Are there patient discounts, rebates, or special offers available? Coupon or rebate programs through the manufacturer and/or the physician may be available from time to time. It’s a good idea to ask your physician if there’s a current discount program available at the time of your consultation. Additionally, you can sign up for Beauty Conversations.
