Sculptra® Aesthetic

Sculptra® Aesthetic

COSMETIC DERMATOLOGY AND SKIN CARE for NEWPORT BEACH, CORONA DEL MAR & ORANGE COUNTY, CA


Sculptra® Aesthetic is a collagen stimulator injectable that fights the signs of facial aging at its source: diminishing collagen in your skin's underlying structure. Collagen is one of the main components that maintains the appearance of youthful, plump skin. Over time, the loss of collagen creates fine lines, wrinkles and folds. When provided by an experienced Sculptra injector, the results of this injectable can last for up to 2 years. To learn more, please call Bonakdar Institute at (949) 721-6000.

Is Sculptra right for Me

Is Sculptra right for Me?

Sculptra works well in areas where there is significant volume loss and thinning, including:

  • Sunken cheeks
  • Hollows under your eyes
  • Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
  • Marionette lines (at the corners of your mouth)
  • Chin wrinkles

Sculptra is an innovative type of dermal filler classified as a collagen stimulator. Sculptra is made of poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic material similar to lactic acid. Poly-L-lactic acid has been used in medical applications for decades and is biocompatible. When it does eventually break down, it is harmlessly absorbed by the body. The outstanding advantage of this material is that it stimulates the production of collagen in your skin. In this way, it can restore the supportive structural components that make skin smooth and youthful.

Dr. Bonakdar is extensively experienced with treating patients with Sculptra, as well as many other types of fillers. During a one-on-one consultation, she will discuss what you would like to change about your face, and then she can recommend your treatment options for full facial rejuvenation. Sculptra has been a great option for many of our patients because of its long-lasting results, which allow them to have much more time between injectable appointments.

Advantages of Collagen Stimulators

Advantages of Collagen Stimulators

Sculptra stands apart from other fillers. While other dermal fillers, such as those made from hyaluronic acid, provide results quickly that last for several months, Sculptra provides a natural, subtle result over time that can last up to 2 years.

To get the best results from Sculptra, multiple injection appointments are typically required. Dr. Bonakdar often recommends 3 treatments, spaced 6 weeks apart. The results gradually appear and improve over the next several weeks.

The reason Sculptra's results are gradual is because the injectable not only restores lost volume, it increases the thickness of your skin over time by stimulating your body to produce collagen beneath your skin. Because of the natural collagen-building process that is taking place, the injectable requires some time to work.
