Sculptra® Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen in the skin. It helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that appear with aging. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades.
Sculptra is a collagen stimulator, helping the body to produce collagen that has been lost with age. Unlike other fillers, it is injected into the deep dermis. It take about 7 weeks to see the full effect and the results last for up to 2 years. Most patients will require 2-3 vials, given over a course of several months, to achieve the optimal results. Patients who are healthy, with a normal immune system, are candidates for this.
