Sculptra is a biocompatible and biodegradable injectable, known as poly-L-lactic acid, which naturally stimulates the cells to produce their own collagen. Sculptra is a collagen stimulator that works within the deep dermis of the skin to help revitalize collagen production and restore the skin’s inner structure and volume. It refreshes the appearance by restoring the skin’s own natural contours and smoothing out wrinkles, creases and folds. One of the main reasons for visible facial aging, like wrinkles and sagging skin, is the loss of collagen, a key component in the skin. Collagen is an elastic protein that maintains skin shape and elasticity, while hyaluronic acid keeps the skin hydrated. More collagen enables the presence of more elastin and hyaluronic acid, which in turn makes the skin more firm and hydrated.
Sculptra works by replenish lost volume by stimulating growth of the natural collagen to treat the underlying causes of facial ageing and is a facial injectable that works gradually in a series of treatments. The revitalization of collagen production happens gradually, helping to restore facial volume and create a more firm and youthful appearance. The results of Sculptra collagen stimulator is visible after one treatment. Within a few weeks, the full effects of the treatment will be even more visible, and can last up to 2 years.
