Restore Lost Facial Volume With Sculptra® Aesthetic

Did you realize that your skin loses roughly 1% of its collagen every year after your 18th birthday? While 1% might not seem like very much, when you’re trying to keep your firm facial features and youthful appearance, it adds up quickly. At that rate, before you celebrate your 50th birthday, you’ve lost nearly 30% of your skin’s natural volume and suppleness! 

So where does that leave you? With sagging skin and an internet search regarding a surgical face-lift? If you’re not too keen on the idea of going under the knife so you can look younger again, it’s good to know you have options, like Sculptra® Aesthetic

Dr. Mrudangi S. Thakur, an experienced plastic surgeon with offices in Jefferson Valley and Middletown, New York, offers a variety of personalized, nonsurgical treatments for aging skin, including a wide range of dermal fillers and cosmetic injections. Learn how Dr. Thakur can restore your lost facial volume with Sculptra Aesthetic. 

Sculptra Aesthetic works gradually so you look natural

Sculptra Aesthetic is a cosmetic injectable that stimulates your skin’s natural collagen production. As your body builds new collagen to replace the collagen you’ve lost over the years, you develop a stronger support structure under your skin. This new collagen support structure holds up skin tissue so your face appears firmer and more youthful. 

But this process doesn’t happen overnight. Sculptra Aesthetic stimulates new collagen cell growth so results appear gradually over the course of a few months and can last up to two years. Essentially, with Sculptra Aesthetic injections, you’re addressing and correcting the underlying causes of sagging, wrinkled skin. 

Dr. Thakur customizes your treatment, but patients typically receive three Sculptra Aesthetic injections over the course of a few months. The number of injections you receive at each appointment depends on how much volume your skin has lost and your aesthetic goals.

Sculptra Aesthetic’s microparticles help restore lost facial volume

The microparticles in Sculptra Aesthetic are poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) — a collagen stimulator. PLLA microparticles get absorbed by the inner structure of your skin tissue to rebuild collagen strands. 

PLLA is commonly found in dissolvable stitches, so it’s not new to the medical community. The PLLA microparticles in Sculptra Aesthetic are biocompatible and biodegradable, so they complete their mission of helping you look younger — with smooth, supple skin — as your body absorbs them. 

Sculptra Aesthetic is FDA-approved to add volume and smooth out wrinkles to the area around your nose, mouth, and chin. 

Is Sculptra Aesthetic right for you?

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of the skin around your nose and mouth as a result of lost volume and wrinkles but you don’t want to undergo surgery, Sculptra Aesthetic may be an ideal solution. Compared to many other types of dermal fillers that rely on hyaluronic acid to plump up skin and smooth out wrinkles, Sculptra Aesthetic provides some of the longest-lasting results because of the way it works within the deeper layers of your skin.


If you want to look naturally younger and restore lost facial volume from the inside out, Sculptra Aesthetic can help. Take the first step by calling the friendly medical team at our Jefferson Valley or Middletown, New York, offices. Or schedule a consultation through our easy-to-use online booking system.
