Sculptra Aesthetic is an innovative and effective form of wrinkle treatment that provides subtle and natural-looking results. Using a series of injections, the treatment gradually transforms your face, making it youthful and wrinkle-free. A Sculptra Aesthetic wrinkle treatment with Dr. Chernoff will help you reduce your smile lines or other facial wrinkles. The procedure is less immediately noticeable and sudden than other types of wrinkle treatments.
How Sculptra Aesthetic Works
Poly-L-lactic is injected to help replace the collagen that is lost due to aging. Collagen is found within your skin and helps support a smooth and youthful facial appearance. As we age and lose this collagen, we need to replace it to stay young-looking. The injections help reinforce the structure of your skin by replacing lost collagen. Unlike collagen injections, the Sculptra procedure works gradually and subtly, proving to be a refined solution to facial wrinkles.
Your procedure is scheduled at an office of Chernoff And Associates and takes just 15 to 30 minutes to complete. Poly-L-lactic, a synthetic material, is injected in selected points on your face depending on the target area you’ve requested. You can request treatment for your nasolabial folds (also known as smile lines), the lines around your mouth, or chin wrinkles. One of our qualified doctors will inject the material under the dermis and subcutis layer.
A reduction in wrinkle lines will gradually and naturally become apparent with time. This procedure works for 2 years, but you will need to complete a series of injections in the first couple months. After 2 years, subsequent injections are required.
Dr. Chernoff and our qualified cosmetic surgeons at Chernoff And Associates will ensure your appointment proceeds safely and without risk. Patients can resume normal activity immediately following the procedure. Poly-L-lactic is a biosynthetic, biodegradable substance and is safe for the human body. It is naturally produced in muscle tissue. You may feel moderate discomfort, bruising, redness and/or swelling at the injection site, but application of an ice pack can help with these side effects. If you do feel any additional adverse reactions, you should inform our office immediately.
Getting the Most Out of Treatment
There are a few ways you can optimize Sculptra Aesthetic’s results: Follow through with all subsequent appointments after your first appointment. You will probably need a series of three injections to complete the course. Another way to improve the effects of your treatment is to massage your face after each session. This will ensure the material is distributed evenly.
