Sculptra™ is used for restoring volume and improving facial contours.
Sculptra™, manufactured by Dermik, is Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLA). PLA has been safely used in orthopedics since the mid-nineties and has been used in Europe since 1999 for cosmetic correction of scars and wrinkles.
Sculptra™ is used for restoring volume and improving facial contours. Sculptra works differently from other injectable products such as botox, collagen and restylane injections. With Sculptra, tiny particles of PLA are diluted in a suspension of sterile water, carefully implanted in the skin, and then molded for optimal results. The particles of PLA stimulate the formation of new collagen in the skin, adding volume over time.
Sculptra™ may require a series of three to five treatments every four to six weeks. Improvement in contour occurs gradually over two to six months, an advantage for those people wishing to avoid the obious tell-tale overnight change in appearance of cosmetic surgery.
Proper use of Scultpra produces a more youthful, pleasing facial contour in people with facial aging, wrinkling and loss of facial fat.
