Sculptra is made of Poly L Lactic acid (PLLA), the same substance used in dissolvable suture material. It is categorized as a collagen stimulator that produces long-lasting and natural results. It is used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, increase volume, and provide a face lift.
How does it work?
A cannula places Sculptra in the areas under skin where collagen induction is needed to restore lost volume and improve skin quality. The Sculptra material triggers a controlled inflammatory response that stimulates the cells to begin producing collagen again. Then the Sculptra itself is excreted through the lymphatic system.
What are the benefits of Sculptra?
Sculptra is low-risk, minimally invasive, functions to stimulate collagen and produces long-lasting results.
How many treatments are needed?
This varies depending on the area and number of vials needed. A series of treatments produces a greater and longer lasting result.
