Collagen is a key structural component that keeps skin youthful looking and smooth. Production of collagen decreases as you age, and you may begin to see wrinkles. Sculptra replaces lost collagen and gives you a more natural-looking appearance.
Sculptra is the first facial injectable that gives you subtle results over time. Sculptra is gradual and natural. It works through a series of treatments – typically three injection sessions over a few months – for a subtle, more youthful looking appearance. This treatment can last up to two years.
Sculptra helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that appear with aging by replacing lost collagen. It targets the underlying causes of the signs of facial aging- the deep dermis, where your skin’s structure is reinforced. By replacing collagen at this deep level, Sculptra creates a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness in facial wrinkles and folds. In essence, Sculptra gradually and subtly corrects facial wrinkles and folds, giving a refined, youthful looking appearance that can last up to two years. No other product works this way.
The main ingredient of Sculptra is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades. Poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body as it works to replace lost collagen has been a common ingredient in dissolvable stitches for decades, and it’s been used as a facial injectable in over 30 countries since 1999.
Sculptra is used for deep folds between the nose and the mouth called smile lines (nasolabial folds), the lines framing your mouth (marionette lines), and chin wrinkles.
