SCULPTRA is a sterile, injectable, biocompatible, biodegradable material that is made of verysmall particles of a synthetic polymer named “poly-L-lactic acid” that is injected in or under thefacial skin through a small needle.
May be used for correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold contour deficiencies and otherfacial wrinkles, correction of fine lines and wrinkles in the cheek region.
Yes, sculptra is safe and all patients that had the treatment have tolerated well.
As with any injection, to decrease pain during injection, a topical or a local anesthetic may beused when injecting. Most pain resolved in less than 24 hours
Your healthcare professional should see you at approximately three-four weeks after eachtreatment session to assess whether you need additional treatment. You may need one to fourtreatment sessions (typically three) to achieve the optimal correction possible. The safety andeffectiveness of SCULPTRA has only been studied in a single treatment regimen of up to foursessions at three four-week intervals.
Your healthcare professional will answer all of your questions and ask about your medicalhistory to determine if SCULPTRA injection is appropriate for you.To prepare for an injectionsession, all make-up should be removed.
As with any injectable wrinkle filler, you can expect injection-related side effects, such asbleeding, tenderness or pain/discomfort, redness, bruising, or swelling. These side effectsgenerally resolve within a few hours to a few days but could last for 14 days or longer.
In a U.S. clinical study, treatment results for some subjects lasted for up to 25 months after thelast treatment session. However, the improvement depended on the severity of the contourdeficiency that a subject had before treatment
