Loss of collagen damages the skin’s structure because collagen is a protein in your body and is the skin’s support system. Collagen triggers the growth and formation of tissues in your body. Sculptra restores lost volume and can help maintain the structure of the facial bones by stimulating collagen production.
Sculptra is an injectable product that reduces sunken cheeks, deep folds, and indentations. Sculptra includes PLLA, is a collagen activator that restores fullness to facial folds and wrinkles while at the same time giving you a softer and more youthful appearance. Sculptra is designed to stimulate collagen by using Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) as the active ingredient. PLLA is a biocompatible synthetic ingredient manufactured specifically to induce collagen production.
Sculptra is an excellent choice to look youthful without looking artificial. Because Sculptra work on collagen, the changes to your face are gradual. Each treatment goes deep into the dermis, and over time Sculptra activates the body to replace collagen lost to aging. Sculptra can also be injected with other dermal fillers to give you immediate fullness.
Sculptra was approved by the FDA in 2009 for aesthetic purposes. Sculptra treatments are in-office procedures that must be done by a certified injector, and the number of Sculptra injections you will need varies. Discuss Sculptra Aesthetic treatment with your aesthetician to get the best advice possible.
