Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen, for results that can last up to two years. As a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, Sculptra helps restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin to diminish facial wrinkles.Sculptra works with your body within the deep dermis to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume. As the Sculptra PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production.
Q: What is Sculptra?
A: Sculptra is a PLLA (like a dissolvable suture) form of injectable that is injected into the dermis to help stimulate your body’s own collagen production in order to diminish lines/wrinkles and restore volume. Over a few weeks you will notice a softer, more youthful appearance that can last up to 2 years.
Q: How long will sculptra last?
A: The Sculptra particles will very gradually disappear, but the collagen produced could last for five or more years. Once desired correction is achieved, we recommend a maintenance session (one to two vials) about every two years to replace the collagen that may have been lost due to aging in that period.
Q: Where can sculptra be used?
A: Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable for many facial areas such as jawline, mid-lower face, neck region, and even body parts such as the buttocks, cellulite correction, and crepey skin that can be found above knee caps.
