Sculptra Aesthetic can be a very effective and long-lasting skin volumizer. The treatment, available here at Advanced Aesthetics of Las Vegas, is designed to stimulate collagen growth and restore elasticity, volume, and moisture to the skin. As we get older, natural collagen production begins to slow and many of us may notice a hollowness setting into our facial features, such as the cheeks or around the eyes, as well as the emergence of deep wrinkles and fine lines. Sculptra Aesthetic can be a great procedure to rejuvenate areas of the face.

Common Questions About Sculptra®
Below are some of the most commonly asked questions from patients interested in Sculptra Aesthetic. Please review the information below to learn more. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact us for more information.
How long will results last?
Most patients can enjoy the benefits of Sculptra® Aesthetic much longer than other dermal fillers – up to 2 to 5 years. Results are often longer-lasting because of Sculptra® Aesthetic’s ability to regenerate collagen gradually following treatment. It can also be injected much deeper than some of the other available fillers.
When will I see a difference?
While the full results are not immediate, patients can expect to see benefits about 8 weeks after treatment. As collagen is restored in the skin, your appearance is expected to look more youthful and refreshed, and results should gradually continue to improve.
What can I expect on the day of treatment?
Poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic substance used in Sculptra® Aesthetic that promotes collagen growth, is injected into the target areas with an ultra fine needle. A local anesthetic can be used to numb treatment areas and minimize discomfort.
How long is the treatment session?
The procedure typically lasts 30 to 60 minutes and can often be completed on a lunch break. A total of 3 to 4 treatments may be needed for maximum results.
When can I go back to work?
Most patients can return to their normal daily activities immediately following the procedure with minimal side effects. Mild bruising, swelling, and redness may occur, but this typically subsides within a few days. Firm massaging of the treated areas can help to alleviate these effects.
