This facial injectable treatment is used to correct shallow to deep nasolabial fold smile lines, contour deficiencies, and other facial wrinkles. It works gradually to replace the collagen that is lost during the aging process. Sculptra Aesthetic gives you natural-looking results that can last up to 2 years. A complimentary consultation from our licensed dermatologist is required prior to treatment.

To decrease potential bruising, avoid these medications for at least one week prior to injections: Aspirin or Ibuprofen, Fish Oil, Vitamin E, “G” supplements (ginkgo, ginseng, garlic), St. John’s Wort. NSAIDs like Celebrex and Naproxen may cause thinning of the blood, consult your physician before discontinuing. Downtime may include bruising and slight swelling. Doctors recommend lightly massaging the treated areas for 5 minutes, 5 times a day, for 5 days to ensure accurate collagen growth.
