Sculptra is a cosmetic injection that adds volume to your face and restores your skin’s collagen reserves. When injected into targeted areas, Sculptra encourages your body to produce its natural filler material — collagen. We can use Sculptra to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, elevate facial contours, make your cheeks look fuller, and restore facial volume. Since Sculptra encourages natural collagen production, the results are always naturalized.
How does Sculptra work?
Sculptra is made of poly-l-lactic acid, a naturally occurring substance that stimulates collagen production. Collagen is a fibrous protein that makes your skin look firm, taut, and voluminous, and the age-related loss of collagen is responsible for facial wrinkles and skin laxity. When injected into targeted areas on the face, Sculptra stimulates natural collagen production to strengthen your skin’s structural framework. It can eventually make your skin look fuller, smoother, and more youthful.
