Sculptra is a type of injectable filler made from poly-L-lactic acid, a biodegradable and biocompatible substance that stimulates collagen production in the skin. Collagen is a protein that helps give the skin its structure, firmness, and elasticity. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, leading to wrinkles, sagging skin, and other signs of aging.
How Does It Work?
Sculptra gradually increases collagen production in the treated area, leading to a natural-looking improvement in skin texture, firmness, and volume over time. It is often used to treat deep facial wrinkles and folds and add volume to the cheeks and temples. Sculptra is typically administered over several treatment sessions spaced weeks apart to achieve the desired results.
When injected into the skin, Sculptra works by gradually increasing collagen production in the treated area, leading to a natural-looking improvement in skin texture, firmness, and volume over time. It is often used to treat deep facial wrinkles and folds and add volume to the cheeks and temples.
Benefits of Sculptra Injections:
- Often, this filler is referred to as a liquid facelift because of the non-invasive lifting it provides. By restoring those youthful contours and thickening skin that has started to thin, Sculptra injectables can improve overall facial appearance.
- Sculptra is a filler that consists of a series of treatments performed in less than an hour and requires no downtime. Once completed, you’ll be set for nearly two years and only have to return for minor touch-ups.
- The gradual onset of results from Sculptra gives patients a result that looks more natural and less over-filled; if that is what you desire, this is the treatment for you.
- Many other fillers on the market are composed of hyaluronic acid. In contrast, Sculptra contains Poly-L-Lactic Acid – a substance that poses little to no risk of an allergic reaction because it is synthetic and gradually fades from the body.
