The Sculptra® Aesthetic Treatment

At the consultation appointment with Dr. Hardesty, it is important to go over the areas of concern on your face as well as your aesthetic desires. This will help him create a unique treatment plan for you that will help you achieve the best results. During the consultation, you will need to provide information about your medical history and list of allergens. This is to help ensure that there are no complications with the injectable filler.

The Sculptra Aesthetic treatment regimen is designed as a series of four or more injections. These sessions are scheduled about 3-4 weeks apart. The injection is made into the deep dermis, this is where strands of collagen support the structure of the skin. The results from the Sculptra aesthetic treatment appear gradually as the PLLA micro-particles are absorbed resulting in your own collagen beginning to reproduce and restore lost contour. The results of this treatment have been proven to last for up to two years.
