How does Sculptra work?

Sculptra is an alternative filler as the product does not add volume with a substance. Instead, Sculptra triggers natural collagen growth, regenerating your skin from within. Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid, a biodegradable molecule that is easily broken down and absorbed by your body. When injected into the skin, it causes a reaction, sending a signal to your skin to generate fresh collagen, for firmer, more youthful skin that lasts up to two years.

Is Sculptra Right for me?

Sculptra is appropriate as a treatment for volume loss in larger facial zones. Sculptra may be a good fit for you if you want to:

  • Add plumpness to the undereye area
  • Enhance natural cheek volume
  • Sculpt and firm jowls
  • Improve the quality your skin to treat wrinkles or sagging 
  • Achieve natural-looking, long-lasting results
  • One difference to keep in mind about Sculptra is that, unlike many fillers, the effects of
  • Sculptra treatments take longer to appear – your skin needs some time to regenerate. For best results, you may need three treatment sessions over several months.

What makes Sculptra different?

Unlike injectable dermal fillers, which deliver immediately visible results, results from Sculptra take longer to appear. The result of treatment is an enhancement that appears fully natural – because it is a skin regeneration technique, rather than a filler.
