Sculptra is a synthetic, biocompatible material that is injected below the surface of the skin. It is made up of microspheres of poly-L-lactic acid. Sculptra is now approved for cosmetic use. Sculptra helps to improve the appearance of facial fat loss by increasing skin thickness in the treated area. Sculptra is a collagen stimulator that absorbs into your body a few days after treatment and encourages your cells to produce MORE collagen. Collagen is a protein in your skin that provides structure, support, and strength. Collagen production over time will give you a more youthful appearance.
Results of Sculptra
Replenish collagen production in the skin
As we age, we lose collagen, which acts as the skin’s support structure and helps maintain its shape. In fact, 70% of our skin is composed of collagen, and collagen loss causes the skin to lose its elasticity and moisture.
Sculptra helps treat an underlying cause of facial aging—the loss of collagen. By helping stimulate your own natural collagen growth, Sculptra gradually adds volume that lifts the soft tissues and plumps skin from within.
