Sculptra is an anti-aging injection that helps naturally stimulate collagen production within the facial region. Sculptra uses poly-L-lactic acid to increase collagen production deep within the dermis, thus correcting long-term collagen loss. Sculptra emphasizes long-term results, as many patients see younger-looking skin for two or more years.
How It Works
Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid, a naturally occurring compound that can be used to replace lost collagen levels. As the body absorbs Sculptra, collagen levels continue to be increased, which helps promote long-lasting results. Sculptra is made up of a series of three injections, each spaced about four weeks apart. Sculptra is delivered deep into the dermis via a fine-tip needle; patients can request a topical anesthetic to manage any discomfort.
Area It Treats
Sculptra is most effective when it’s used to treat the following areas:
- Smile lines
- Marionette lines
- Chin wrinkles
Sculptra is best used to correct shallow wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth.
Sculptra injections are delivered in a series of three injections over the course of three months. Patients will see results throughout the months, with optimal results visible about a month after the final treatment. Sculptra results can last for up to two or more years
