Sculptra Now Available!
Gradual, long lasting, natural-looking results!
Over time, our bodies make less collagen, leading to the visible signs of aging. Collagen is a key structural component under the skin that gives shape to the face, keeping skin looking full and firm. Over time, our bodies make less collagen and our skin loses its elasticity and volume. This, along with environmental factors like sun exposure, can lead to the appearance of wrinkles, lines and folds.
Anti-aging creams containing collagen cannot get below the surface of the skin to replace lost collagen, but Sculptra can.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is a Health Canada approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen—the most common protein in the body that is used to form a framework to support cells and tissue—for results that can last up to two years.
How does Sculptra work?
Sculptra is made with a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments administered by the trained specialists at Distinct Medical Aesthetics.
- Works deep under the skin to gradually replace lost collagen
- Restores volume
- Smooths out wrinkles, creases and folds
- Stimulates your body to replace lost collagen
- Results can last over 2 years
Which areas does Sculptra treat?
Sculptra is used to correct shallow to deep wrinkles and folds on the face. When administered with the appropriate injection technique from a trained specialist, Sculptra is clinically approved for:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
How many treatments are required?
On average, a series of three treatment sessions over the course of a few months may be needed. The number of injections at each session will vary, depending on the degree of correction needed and the treatment plan determine by you and your provider.
How long does Sculptra last?
Sculptra treatment results differ from person to person. Results can last over 2 years. Touch-up treatments may be needed to maintain the desired effect. Your provider will discuss the right treatment plan for you.
How soon will I see results?
Because Sculptra works over time to replace collagen - the underlying cause of facial aging - results are not immediate. You will see a gradual change in the appearance of your skin over several weeks as the treatment effect occurs, creating a natural, volumized look.
