Sculptra Aesthetics

Sculptra Biostimulator Injections in Niagara Falls, ON.

What is this treatment?

With aging, we lose collagen in our face – a protein in the body that supports cell and tissue formation. Often collagen loss is seen between the nose and mouth, which causes the formation of “smile lines” (wrinkles) around the month.

 Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen, reducing the appearance of smile lines for up to 2 years.

Sculptra is made with a biostimulator material called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which stimulates collagen production to help restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin to diminish facial wrinkles.

Why is it used?

It is a medical device that treats the aging signs :

  • Bone loss or resorption
  • Fat loss or volume loss
  • Skin laxity and sagginess

How does it work?

Sculptra induces inflammation & fibroblasts deposit  collagen Type I & III & then the Sculptra particles degrade. This gives structure to the skin & corrects wrinkles & volume loss over time.
It is a synthetic Biocompatible, biodegradable, biostimulator immunologically inert polymer.

What areas are treated?

This procedure is performed on the face and neck.

How is this treatment provided?

Sculptra Aesthetic is injected deep into the nasolabial folds around the mouth. The injected poly-L-lactic acid is then gradually absorbed by the body to rebuild lost collagen in the treated area.

What does this procedure feel like?

Sculptra is premixed with sterile water & anesthetics are added to it. It is injected deep above the bone with a needle & subcutaneously & subdermally with the cannula. This is a relatively painless procedure.

What is the treatment recovery process?

No downtime is required following treatment.

The most common side effects after initial treatment include injection site swelling, tenderness, redness, pain, bruising, bleeding, itching, and lumps. Other side effects may include small lumps under the skin that are sometimes noticeable when pressing on the treated area. Larger lumps, some with delayed onset with or without inflammation or skin discoloration, have also been reported.
