Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) injectable that gradually restores facial volume for natural, subtle, and long-lasting results. PLLA, which is biocompatible and biodegradable, is injected as microparticles into the deep dermis of your skin, where collagen supports the skin structure. As the PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they encourage collagen strands to rebuild in the treatment area to restore facial volume. By stimulating collagen production, Sculptra helps your skin restore and maintain the shape, smoothness, and hydration it needs for younger-looking results that can last up to 25 months.
Ideal for wrinkles and folds around the mouth and chin, Sculptra’s series of treatments addresses the underlying cause of facial aging, not just the symptoms, by replenishing lost collagen and activating your skin’s natural regenerative process. While dermal fillers immediately treat superficial lines, wrinkles, and folds, Sculptra helps prevent further collagen and volume loss and supports your skin’s actual inner structure to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles.
Sculptra treatments vary by individual, but, on average, require three injection appointments over a period of a few months for optimal results. Noticeable results appear gradually but can last more than 2 years, so do not be discouraged if you do not see an immediate difference. Most patients begin to see a reduction in facial wrinkles and folds a few months after treatment.
