Sculptra is a revolutionary injectable that triggers long-term skin regeneration. Rather than being a hyaluronic acid filler, Sculptra is made with a biodegradable, biocompatible substance called poly-l-lactic acid (PLLA). PLLA has been used to create dissolvable sutures for years and will be absorbed slowly by your body over time.
The micro-particles of PLLA in Sculptra are suspended in an injectable gel. You will experience an immediate smoothing effect on wrinkles and lines with an added benefit: The micro-particles of PLLA trigger your skin to produce natural collagen in higher quantities. The microbeads are absorbed, and the natural collagen remains, leaving you with firmer, more youthful skin.
Is Sculptra right for me?
Sculptra can produce a remarkable improvement in skin texture, firmness, and resilience as your skin produces higher quantities of natural collagen, rebuilding your skin from within. The product is FDA-approved, and offers the following benefits:
- Gradual skin regeneration
- Creates a very natural result
- Can smooth laugh lines, marionette lines, and chin creases and lines
- Requires no allergy testing
- Recovery time is minimal
Where can Sculptra be injected?
Sculptra can be injected in various areas of the face or body. It can be used to increase buttocks volume and enhance shape, similar to the results of a butt lift with natural fat transfer, but with shorter recovery time.
For facial enhancement, Sculptra can be used to smooth:
- Smile lines (nasolabial folds)
- Marionette lines (extending from sides of the mouth to chin)
- Chin creases and wrinkles
What are Sculptra injections like to experience?
Sculptra is injected deeply into the dermis, the layer of skin in which the collagen strands create structure. Your skin will be numbed with a topical cream before your injections, which should not be uncomfortable to experience, and will take only minutes to complete. You may require several treatments to achieve the optimal level of skin renewal.
