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.
"Dr. Mentz is nothing short of a magician. I went to him for an abdominoplasty in November of 2015 and his work has been life changing. His "bedside manner" is equal to his skill. I did not, for one moment, feel spoken down to or intimidated by his brilliance. He was kind, professional and has a great sense of humor. This man is an artist."- J.R. / Facebook / Aug 16, 2017

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.

Gradual, Natural Results?
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
