Age doesn't have to
look the way it used to. It's more subtle. More gradual. Sculptra
Aesthetic Explained by Dr. Newman
James Newman is pleased to offer Sculptra Aesthetic, the FDA approved injectible
for correction of facial aging and volume loss. James Newman, MD has
extensive experience with Sculptra because he has been using the
product since its first FDA approval for facial lipoatrophy in 2006.
At a recent International Facial Plastic Surgery conference, Dr.
Newman reported his experience with an audience of
Surgeons Dr. Newman reported that
Sculptra Aesthetic works over time with subtle stimulation of your
body's own collagen. Patients notice the gradual improvement in
their overall facial volume as shown in the photos below. Dr. Newman
noted that most patients receive and average of three treatment
sessions over the course of a few months. His patients still show
results of the treatment at 2 years and beyond. In fact the results
have been reproduced by physicians throughout the world and that is
why Sculptra has an international reputation amongst people in every
continent. Dr. Newman offers Scupltra treatments in
California - San Mateo, California -
Half Moon Bay California.
Sculptra Aesthetic is a new type
of facial injectible made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to
replace lost collagen. It helps correct shallow to deep facial
wrinkles, and folds, that appear with aging by replacing lost
collagen. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable
synthetic material known as poly lactic acid. Dr. Newman explains
that this is the same material which he has used in Facial Surgery
for the past few decades as an absorbable suture. There is a long
history of biocompatability with the poly lactic acid. With any
synthetic material there is a chance of inflammatory reaction.
Understanding how poly lactic acid works and its correct placement
is vital to producing safe and reliable results. Sculptra Aesthetic
is only offered by trained core aesthetic specialist such as Facial
& General Plastic Surgeons, Dermatologist and Oculoplastic Surgeons
who have been adequately trained by recognized experts in the field,
including Dr. Newman.
Sculptra Aesthetic is Different
in the way that it Works
Goes to the source of facial aging and "Sculptra is a collagen
replacer"-James Newman, MD, FACS
Dr Newman recently published an article entitled, Review of Facial
Soft Tissue Augmentation, in the Investigative Journal of
Dermatology. There he explained how Sculptra Aesthetic targets the
underlying causes of the signs of facial aging---loss of skin
collagen and subcutaneous fat. By applying poly lactic acid in the
the deep dermis, your own skin cells known as fibroblast react by
producing new collagen and with the help of other cells, can repair
and remove damaged collagen and elastin. This reinforced collagen
structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of
fullness of your shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that have
depleted over time. The result is a process of biostimulation which
helped gain FDA approval for a duration of effect for 2 years.
Sculptra Is biocompatible and biodegradable
Sculptra Aesthetic is made from a synthetic material called
poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the
body as it works to replace lost collagen. Poly-L-lactic acid has
been used safely for decades in dissolvable stitches and as a facial
injectible since 1999 in over 30 countries. Dr. Newman notes that
there has been a learning curve over the past 12 years to determine
the best way to apply Sculptra in the Face. With his experience
since 2005, the product has been safe and effective but stresses
that careful technique and judgment needs to be adhered to when
using any type of injectible material.

Sculptra Aesthetic is indicated for the correction of shallow to
deep nasolabial fold (smile lines) contour deficiencies and other
facial wrinkles which are treated with the appropriate injection
technique in healthy people
Dr. Newman also uses Sculptra to improve hollowing of the cheeks,
temples and weakness of the jawline.
Sculptra is injected in the office and is frequently used as and
adjunct to replace volume when fat is not a good option.
It helps maintain results from Aging Face surgery because it keeps
the face looking natural in 3 dimensions.
Dr Newman also notes that patients who have previously had facelifts
from more than 10 or 20 years ago, can restore a more natural look
by adding Sculptra Aesthetic rather than just relying on secondary
