If you are familiar with injectable treatments, you may have heard of Sculptra. Sculptra is a dermal filler made of poly-L-lactic acid, which is a synthetic material that has been used for many years in medical implants and sutures. It was FDA approved for use in humans in 2004 and has become increasingly popular since then. When Sculptra is injected, it acts as a scaffold to support the growth of new collagen. Sculptra is made up of small particles of poly-L-lactic acid, which are slowly absorbed by the body over time. It is most commonly used to correct volume loss in the face, plump up the lips, fill in under-eye hollows, and improve the appearance of scars.

During Sculptra treatment, it is injected with a fine needle to a site that is numbed with a local anesthetic before treatment. Sculptra can be injected into the deep dermis or subcutaneous layer of the skin.

Benefits of Sculptra

Despite gaining a youthful appearance, below are some benefits of using Sculptra.

Reduces wrinkles and lines

Sculptra can help to minimize wrinkles and fine lines. It does this by stimulating collagen production, which in turn helps to plump up the skin. Sculptra treatments can also help to improve the overall texture of the skin and give it a more youthful appearance. In addition, it can also help to provide lift because it helps replenish lost collagen.

Safe and effective

Sculptra treatments are also very safe and have minimal side effects. The most common side effect is injection site reactions, which are usually mild and resolve on their own. These treatments are also very affordable and can be completed in a short period of time. Sculptra is also a very versatile treatment, meaning that it can be used to treat a wide variety of wrinkles and lines.

Long-lasting results

Sculptra is unique in that it provides long-lasting results. The polylactic acid in Sculptra slowly breaks down over time, meaning that the results of your treatment will gradually improve over time. This is in contrast to other injectable treatments, which typically only provide short-term results. The long-lasting nature of this injectable means that you can enjoy its benefits for many years to come.

Can add volume to the face

Sculptra is also a dermal filler used on the face to add volume. It is unique because it stimulates collagen production yielding volume to the face.
