Sculptra Aesthetic diminishes facial gauntness and creasing by stimulating an increase in the skin’s collagen, a key skin ingredient which gives the face volume and strength. Sculptra is one of the newer injectable treatment and it takes a different approach to correcting facial gauntness. Through a series of three treatment sessions, it stimulates the body’s own production of collagen to restore volume to the face. In this way, its benefits appear gradually, unlike the hyaluronic acid-based fillers which achieve immediate results. Sculptra is considered a semi-permanent filler, with results lasting up to two years for many patients. Dr. Henry Mentz, a triple board-certified plastic surgeon in Houston, offers professional wrinkle treatments with dermal fillers like Sculptra Aesthetic at his on-site MedSpa.
"I had an amazing experience. Would do it again. - I was lucky to choose Dr. Mentz as my surgeon. I am 13 days out at this time so still early in the recovery process but I am very satisfied with my progress. I had the remainder of my sutures removed yesterday and am looking forward to the future with my new much improved face. Dr. Mentz and his "family" of caring staff are beyond what everyone should look for in a PS. I know I chose the best!! - - I was lucky to choose Dr. Mentz as my surgeon.

"Dr. Mentz is the best of the best! His skill and artistry is second to none. He is by far, the most caring doctor I've met, with safety Top priority. His office staff is just as kind and professional. After losing a great deal of weight, I had a lot of extra and loose skin. Even with Bootcamp 5 days a week and spin class, I was disappointed and embarrassed with my body, especially naked. Dr. Mentz did my lower face and neck In January. I can't, nor can anyone else see where the incisions were and it looks just as if I've aged very well. A month ago, Dr. Mentz did extensive body work. It hasn't even all settled. I'm still swollen, but I'm beyond thrilled. My body is already so much improved and I look so much better! My incisions are straight and low on my lower body. The part where tape is off, I'm amazed at my healing already. My scarring is going to be unnoticeable. My breasts are now perfect. I got improvement, in places I wasn't even expecting, nor do I know how Dr. Mentz pulled it off. Needless to say, I'm over the moon! I can't wait until I'm released to exercise and hit the level of fitness I was going into surgery. In surgeon shopping, Dr. Mentz is pricey, but with him, you get what you pay for. He is worth every penny. You can't go wrong with him as your surgeon. Dr. Mentz delivers incredible results!"- J.G. / Google / Dec 28, 2016

The effects of Sculptra, which is made from poly-L lactic acid, build gradually, through a series of approximately three injectable treatments that are spread out over a few months. Its maximum effects are typically apparent 4-6 months after the first treatment. Sculptra is rising in popularity because of its relatively long-lasting benefits, which can be evident for as long as 2 years.

Unlike other dermal fillers, the results of Sculptra develop over the course of several months from about 3 treatment sessions. This allows the patient to slowly improve their appearance, which make it less obvious to anyone who doesn’t know you’re getting Sculptra treatments.
Most patients will get their best results from Sculptra Aesthetic if they have several treatments (around 3 for most patients) over the course of a few months. The final results usually appear and last for about 2 years.
Sculptra Aesthetic can be used on several areas of the face to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, but it is most commonly used on:
- Nasolabial Folds or Smile Lines: the deep folds between the nose and mouth
- Marionette Lines: the lines around the mouth
- Chin Wrinkles
