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-persistent 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.

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.
