Sculptra is an FDA-approved dermal filler that activates your body’s innate healing and collagen production capabilities. Like most dermal fillers, Sculptra also fills the fine lines and wrinkles, restores lost facial volume, and augments facial features, such as the jawline and cheeks. However, unlike other fillers, it doesn’t rely on external components but on your body’s natural processes, encouraging your body to naturally reverse the signs of aging.
What is Sculptra?
How does Sculptra work?
Poly-L-Lactic Acid is the primary active ingredient in Sculptra. PLLA is a naturally-occurring component that adds volume to your skin, giving a gentle lift. But its beauty truly lies in its ability to encourage collagen production. Collagen is the skin’s primary structural framework, holding it upright against the force of gravity. The gradual loss of collagen due to age and excessive sun exposure is the reason for wrinkles, skin laxity, and hollow cheeks.
Sculptra restores your skin’s youthful collagen reserves, thereby giving you firm, smooth, and even-textured skin.
Sculptra produces some results instantly, but most of the results appear gradually over several weeks or months as your body produces new collagen fibers. The average treatment plan consists of 3 injections spaced over several months, but your provider will curate the ideal treatment plan based on your needs. The final results last for around 2 years.
