Sculptra™ is a unique volumizer that restores elasticity to the skin. Unlike traditional fillers, Sculptra™ helps lift, smooth and firm up your skin gradually because it stimulates the production of your own collagen. The result is a fuller, smoother, more youthful and natural-looking face with less pronounced lines, creases, wrinkles and folds.
Sculptra™ is generally injected in three treatment sessions over a two- to three month period (at four- to six-week intervals). During this time, unwanted deep lines and wrinkles gradually diminish as the skin firms up as a result of producing its own collagen. Referred to by some physicians as a “facelift in a bottle,” Sculptra™ restores your youthful appearance with natural-looking results that can last up to two years. Regular touch-ups, at this time, can further prolong results for significant, long-lasting effects.
Derived from fruit acids, Sculptra™ is a biocompatible and biodegradable injectable material known as poly-Lactic acid that naturally stimulates the body to produce its own collagen. This same material has enjoyed wide usage for over thirty years in dissolvable stitches and soft tissue implants, and has a proven safety record. No skin pre-testing is required.
