Sculptra Aesthetic is very unique for facial rejuvenation and excellent for liquid facelifts. It is FDA approved in the U.S. and has been used worldwide since 1999. It contains a synthetic material called PLLA, poly-L-lactic acid, which is biocompatible and is naturally absorbed by the body, and often found in dissolvable stitches.
Sculptra works by stimulating your body to form collagen anywhere it is placed. So if your cheekbones are shrinking, you can make your own collagen and lift them up again, with help from Sculptra. Same for your chin and jaw, or your temples which often get very hollow, as aging sets in. Among the main advantages to Sculptra Aesthetic is its longevity, with results lasting as long as 3 to 4 years!! (The fine particles that are placed in the areas to be filled will last up to 24 months in the body before being broken down.
The collagen that the body forms around those particles will last up to 12 to 24 months longer.) Because Sculptra works by stimulating your body to produce collagen, rather by taking up space immediately, like traditional fillers do, it also develops more slowly. This results in a more natural change in appearance, which many patients prefer. (If you love instant results, consider our other options such as Voluma or Restylane Lyft.)
If restoring your facial contours in a very natural fashion to the way they were a few years ago appeals to you, be sure to schedule your free consultation!! Dr. Tantisira is one of the few physicians in the Honolulu, Hawaii area who is trained to use Sculptra and she has many years of surgical and non-surgical cosmetic experience.
