I have just returned from the "Train the Trainers" session for Sculptra Esthetic where I was updated on the latest uses of Sculptra and Sculptra Aesthetic.
You will be hearing a lot about it during the next weeks as they roll out their promotions.
Firstly and importantly the price of Sculptra Aesthetic has been reduced from the original Sculptra, although the material is the same. This will make it more afforadable and allow more dramatic corrections.
Secondly its approval is "for correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles..." which could allow its use all about the face.
However, there are specific warnings that it NOT be used in the lips or eyelids. These areas are especially prone to nodules and papules. Avoiding treatment of these areas and good technique greatly reduces the chances of any problems.
It is currently the longest lasting of any temporary filler and has been for years or prefered product for reshaping the face.
Do NOT have Sculpra Aesthetic injected about your eyes. Although not as long lasting, our choice in that area is Restylane.
