One of the secrets to healthy and youthful-looking skin is collagen. Collagen maintains skin structure, helping it appear smooth and hydrated.
As we age, collagen production declines and we lose this essential protein. Sculptra is a collagen stimulator made from Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA), a biodegradable synthetic polymer. Sculptra Injections help to restore volume over time, and work differently from traditional HA hyaluronic acid dermal fillers.
It is injected into the skin in small doses to help stimulate the production of collagen, which can improve the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin. Unlike many other fillers, Sculptra does not provide an immediately visible correction; instead, results gradually appear as new collagen is produced over time. The treatment is typically administered over a series of sessions, depending on the patient's needs.
