Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen, the most common protein in the body that is used to form a framework to support cells and tissue for results that can last up to two years.
Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator and helps restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin to diminish facial wrinkles. As the Sculptra PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production. Sculptra works WITH YOUR BODY within the deep dermis to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume.
Sculptra results are gradual and patients can expect to start seeing changes around 6 weeks. This is because over the course of 4-6 weeks after treatment, the Sculptra crystals stimulate collagen synthesis, and rebuilds the skin’s support structure. The result is more support and fullness, and after a series of sessions, results can last up to two years.
