WHAT IS SCULPTRA?
Sculptra (injectible poly-L-latic acid) is an FDA approved injectible collagen stimulator that helps to treat the underlying causes of aging, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and sagging in a natural- looking way.
How is Sculptra different from other fillers?
Sculptra is different from other fillers because it does not merely treat the appearance of facial aging— it works to treat the underlying cause. As the body ages, our collagen levels become diminished. This causes the skin to become thinner and drier, creating the appearance of wrinkles and sagging.
The active ingredient in Sculptra, poly-L- lactic acid, works to stimulate collagen growth, helping to restore a youthful appearance. This poly-L- lactic acid is naturally and gradually absorbed into the body, allowing Sculptra to promote collagen growth over a longer period of time.
Sculptra is also different from other fillers in that the treatment lasts for a longer period of time. While other fillers may last only six months to a year, Sculptra may last for up to three to five years.

What should I expect when
Sculptra is strategically applied to your desired areas over a series of injection sessions, spread out over a period of several months. The most common number of sessions is two to four, though your individual treatment plan may vary.
Because Sculptra stimulates your body's own collagen growth, it works gradually. It may take several weeks to begin seeing the true results of Sculptra.
Sculptra is safe and biodegradable, meaning that it will naturally be broken down by the body and removed after it has served its purpose. It is also biodegradable, so that the body will not reject it.
Though results are gradual,they are long lasting!
