What is Sculptra Aesthetic?
Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable poly-L-lactic acid that is FDA approved for the correction of shallow to deep nasolabial folds (smile lines) and other facial wrinkles. This injection restores and corrects the natural signs of facial fat loss. Treatments provide an increase in skin thickness of the areas where volume fat has been lost, helping to restore fullness to the face for a more youthful appearance and gradually reducing wrinkles and folds on specific areas of the face.
About this treatment
It primarily consists of poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic material that is naturally absorbed by the body. It has been used in dissolvable stitches for many years. Sculptra Aesthetic is approved by the FDA and has been in use around the world since the year 1999. Dr. Bloch from Body by Bloch is a board-certified plastic surgeon that is highly experienced in providing Sculptra Aesthetic and related treatments.
How does it work?
It will work gradually after being injected into the areas where wrinkles and folds need to be eliminated. Unlike many anti-aging treatments available in the market, it reduces the ageing signs gradually over time but the results can last for to 2 years or longer. It is recommended for patients looking for long-term outcomes and not the short-term results of about six months that most fillers achieve. After your treatment, you will not look as if you have had any work done on your treated areas.
Where in the face is this used?
It can be effective in reducing wrinkles and folds that appear on the face around the nose, mouth and the chin. It is injected to minimize nasolabial folds, marionette lines and chin wrinkles. Dr. Bloch will examine your face and agree with you where the areas on your face that can be treated.
How many treatments do I need?
For optimal results, patients typically require about three treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
Are there any side effects?

Even long after treatment, small bumps may be felt under the skin in the treated areas.
