What Is Sculptra®?
Sculptra is an FDA-approved facial injectable that replaces collagen over time that is lost in aging.
Why Would I Use It?
Sculptra® creates a more natural appearance by restoring and correcting the signs of facial fat loss (facial lipoatrophy) and creating facial contouring. In 2009, the FDA approved Sculptra® for the treatment of deep lines and wrinkles around the mouth and the nose.
What Is Sculptra Made Out Of, And Is It Safe?
Sculptra is composed of poly-L-lactic acid in a sterile water base that stimulates the collagen under the skin gradually. Sculptra® is safe, synthetic, and does not require allergy testing prior to injecting.
How Does Sculptra Compare to Other Fillers?
What is unique about Sculptra® is that it corrects gradually, providing long-lasting results. Immediately following the injection you will be able to see visual improvement, mostly due to the sterile water component of the injection. The results of a Sculptra treatment typically last from 1 to 2 years; however, the duration varies among individuals. This treatment is perfect for the discreet patient that desires less immediately obvious results.
