What is Sculptra® Aesthetic?

Sculptra® Aesthetic  is a synthetic injectable material know as “poly-L-lactic acid.” Poly-L-lactic acid is biocompatible (a material that does not harm the body) and biodegradable (able to be broken down by the body). Poly-L-lactic acid has been widely used for many years in dissolvable stitches, soft tissue implants and other types of implants.


from our patients

Great experience at Faces First! Nadia was super nice and you can tell she keeps up with the latest trends in skincare and is constantly updating her techniques. Had a lovely hydrofacial, light treatment and peel and left feeling glowy and taken care of. Will definitely be back to see her.

I absolutely love this place! I have been going for years (oh wait did I just date myself, lol) From the moment you walk in to leaving you feel great! The staff and even the patients in the waiting room are friendly and awesome! 🙌🏼
