Deep wrinkles and facial folds can develop over the course of a lifetime as the skin ages. But, with the help of Sculptra, aging skin doesn’t have to be inevitable! This leading facial filler works in several ways to restore lost volume in the face, creating a smooth, rejuvenated complexion. Let’s learn more about how Sculptra can turn back the clock on your appearance with long-lasting results.
Sculptra is an injectable filler with poly-L-lactic acid, or PLLA, as the main ingredient. It’s been FDA-approved since 2014 to treat facial wrinkles and folds. PLLA is biocompatible, biodegradable, and proven to restore lost collagen in the face.
PLLA is considered a collagen stimulator. This means that it triggers the body’s natural process for collagen production. Collagen is a protein that’s essential to the structure of the skin, but it diminishes naturally with age, often leading to sagging and wrinkled skin.
When Sculptra is injected into the skin, the formula provides an immediate improvement to the look of the skin. However, in the months following treatment, your body will continue to generate collagen in response to the PLLA. This will continually rejuvenate your skin’s appearance, and the PLLA will be safely processed and removed by the body.
The results of can last for over two years, making it far longer lasting than most other injectable treatments on the market today. When Sculptra is applied by a skilled injector, it can correct facial wrinkles and folds of varying depths on the face. Depending on where it’s injected, it can restore lost cheek volume in the cheeks and jawline, as well as smooth out deep nasolabial folds.
