Sculptra Aesthetic provides a one-time treatment program for patients with healthy immune systems. Sculptra treatments consist of a series of up to four injections to fill out the area around the nose and lips in order to remove lines and wrinkles. It is most effective at eliminating the deep folds between the nose and the mouth that some people refer to as “smile lines.” Sculptra has also proven to be effective at erasing the lines that frame the mouth, sometimes called marionette lines and also at getting rid of chin wrinkles.
Dr. Yovino knows that collagen is what keeps your skin healthy, young, and smooth. He also knows that your body decreases its production of collagen as you age and that is what begins to cause wrinkles and lines. Consequently, Dr. Yovino uses Sculptra to replace your body’s lost collagen to gain a more youthful and refined appearance. While every patient is different, and you will want to discuss your own unique situation with Dr. Yovino, the effects of Sculptra can last more than two years in most patients.
