Liquid Facelift & Facial Balancing Before & After – Sculptra
Collagen Production with Sculptra Aesthetic Produces a Liquid Facelift
Sculptra Aesthetic harnesses the body’s own natural process of collagen stimulation to build supportive collagen as “filler” in areas requiring facial volume restoration and support. Dr. Palm is a recognized Sculptra expert, having published 4 articles and a book chapter on the use, safety, and best practices of Sculptra Aesthetic. Additionally, she has served as a global advisory board member, physician instructor and conducted clinical trials for the product. She has presented her clinical experience on Sculptra to the FDA in order to expand its labeling and use.
Sculptra Aesthetic (poly-L-lactic acid) is a milk-like sugar manufactured by non-GMO corn and beets to produce a white powder in a sterile, cryo-preserved vial. It is rehydrated in sterile water for injection and delivered through an injection procedure in multiple tissue planes and areas of the face. Sculptra is injected in two planes: directly on top of bone to restore areas of bony loss (such as in the temples, jawline, cheeks, or near the nose) or in the fat (cheeks, chin, marionette lines) to mimic areas of loss that occur with aging. In the areas of injection, Sculptra Aesthetic is metabolized into common and harmless molecules of carbon dioxide and water while this process signals the body to form collagen in its place. This creates, gradual but meaningful results over a long period of time as Sculptra is approved for a duration of over 2 years. A series of monthly sessions is required to achieve significant results, and periodic maintenance treatment is recommended to sustain the treatment outcome.
Sculptra can be used alone or in combination with other injectable fillers and neurotoxins for both facial, chest, and body rejuvenation. There is very little to no downtime following injection of Sculptra and the procedure is extremely well-tolerated.
