What Is Sculptra?

Sculptra is injectable stimulator that is used as a replacement for collagen lost in the process of aging. It is used for deep facial wrinkles and folds such as smile lines, marionette lines, and chin wrinkles. It is expected to last as long as two years. Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid stimulator and it penetrates deep dermis affecting skin structure. Its particles are absorbed, stimulating collagen production.

Why choose Sculptra?

Sculptra stimulates collagen growth, which gives fullness to wrinkles and folds. It is not a filler but a stimulator. Fillers are substances that diminish lines and wrinkles by elevating the dermis to fill up those creases and results can last only to several months. On the other hand, collagen stimulators such as Sculptra are working by the principle of restoring the structure of the skin and stimulating collagen production. With Sculptra, results become visible gradually over a period of time, as Sculptra treatments trigger the process of restoration. It can last up to two years, and it all varies from case to case.

Safety and side effects

Sculptra Aesthetic is FDA approved in the Unites States and it has been in use for little over a decade. Poly-L-lactic acid is a biocompatible substance that is commonly found in dissolvable stitches, therefore it dissolves in our bodies. It is naturally absorbed by our bodies; therefore, it is safe to use. If you are allergic to any of its ingredients or have an active skin infection. The most common side effects include redness, bruising, itching, tenderness, swelling, moderate pain, and lumps. They are usually short-term and occur if stimulator is not injected properly. It needs to be injected deep to the dermis, therefore it is advised to have it injected by a physician who is trained and certified to perform Sculptra treatments.
