Collagen loss is a primary cause of facial aging. The Skin Clinic offers treatment with Sculptra Aesthetic, an FDA-approved injectable to address collagen loss with poly-L-lactic acid. This treatment is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen. It is offered as a treatment series by our trained medspa specialists.

How does Sculptra Aesthetic replace lost collagen?

The specialist injects treatment within the deep dermis, where strands of collagen support skin’s structure. Over time, Sculptra Aesthetic helps the body produce collagen. On average, three injection appointments are needed throughout a period of months. The number of injection appointments and the number of injections per appointment vary by how much collagen has been lost.

Where does Sculptra work best?

It is best for adding volume to:

  • hollows in cheeks, chin, or temples
  • smile lines
  • folds in the nose to mouth/mouth to chin area
  • defining the jawline
  • additional areas on the body

Is any special preparation or aftercare needed to receive Sculptra Aesthetic?

The injection procedure is very quick – you can make a lunchtime appointment to receive Sculptra Aesthetic. Scottsdale patients have reported excellent results and minimal aftercare; many go right back to their daily activities with little or no downtime.
