Sculptra Aesthetic was approved by the FDA on July 29th, 2009 for use in correcting shallow or deep nasolabial fold contour deficiencies as well as other facial wrinkles. Sculptra is one of the most advanced treatments for restoring depleted volume to areas such as the cheeks, jowls, and nasolabial fold regions. Dr. Brian S . Glatt, of the Premier Plastic Surgery Center of New Jersey, is pleased to offer this new cutting edge injectable filler treatment at his Morristown, NJ office. Dr. Glatt is well versed in performing Sculptra treatments, which requires considerable skill and expertise to perform correctly.
Sculptra Aesthetic differs significantly from traditional fillers, such as Juvederm, Radiesse, and Restylane. The duration of effect is at least 2 years, and possibly much longer. The “fill” effect of Sculptra comes from the body’s production of its own natural collagen, and does not come from the actual product itself. As such – the volume enhancement which Sculptra produces does take some time to develop in a gradual fashion, usually two to six months for full effect. Sculptra Aesthetic is made up of an injectable natural material, which is broken down by the body after inducing the growth and formation of new collagen. Adequate treatment typically requires 1-3 separate sessions to achieve full correction, but provides a more gradual and potentially more natural effect than some other fillers. The mechanism of action has been compared to planting seeds (Scupltra) and allowing grass to grow in over time (body’s collagen production).
