Sculptra® Aesthetic

Home|Injectables|Sculptra® Aesthetic

Sculptra® Aesthetic by Galderma is an FDA-approved injectable filler composed of poly-L-lactic acid with on-label approval for correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles. The product must be reconstituted prior to use to form a sterile non-pyogenic suspension.

How does Sculptra® Aesthetic Work?

Sculptra® Aesthetic works by a unique mechanism – as it is gradually absorbed by the body, the injected poly-L-lactic acid provides volumization by stimulating collagen production.  While the number of appointments and injections per appointment vary, on average three injection appointments are needed over a period of a few months.

What are the Aesthetic Goals of Sculptra® Aesthetic at Total Aesthetics™?

As one of the most experienced and sought after injectors in New England, Dr. O’Connell’s goal with all relaxers and fillers is to achieve a natural and rested look without the artificial, overdone appearance.  We believe that fillers require injectors with great experience and skill in the area of facial aesthetics, to obtain a natural, “untreated” appearance – that’s why we feel that board certified plastic surgeons are uniquely qualified in this regard.

How Long does Sculptra® Aesthetic Last?

According to the manufacturer, the results can last for up to two years.
