Sculptra® is an injectable poly-L-lactic acid filler that is FDA-approved for replacing lost collagen. Collagen loss is an unfortunate, natural side effect of aging. It is what often gives our faces and bodies a bony and hollow appearance.
How it Works
Rather than plumping with liquid volume, Sculptra® works with your body to stimulate collagen production and help restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin. Rebuilt collagen then gradually improves facial volume and diminishes wrinkles and folds. This is a process that takes time to see results, but they are well worth it.
Typically, a few treatments are needed, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Results peak in the months following your last treatment. Because Sculptra® stimulates the production of your own collagen, results can last 2-3 years and can typically be maintained with one treatment per year thereafter.
