What is Sculptra?

Sculptra (PLLA- Poly L Lactic Acid), is a collagen biostimulator approved by the US FDA since 2004. After injection, Sculptra stimulates skin cells to produce new collagen and elastin- this improves skin quality and results in firmer, lifted skin with less fine lines and sagging1,2. Common treatment areas include the temple, cheeks, nasolabial fold and chin.

How does Sculptra work?

Sculptra harnesses the intrinsic ability of the skin to rejuvenate itself- PLLA microspheres attract skin fibroblasts to jump start the process of collagen production. The process takes time, with visible results seen only 1-3 months after a treatment. Results are long lasting, with clinical studies showing results lasting over 25 months1,2

Why choose Sculptra?

Sculptra is ideal for clients who are seeking rejuvenation but wish for a more subtle and natural look. As compared to hyaluronic acid fillers where “what you see is what you get”, the results from Sculptra occur gradually over 1-3 months and can last up to 24 months. While Sculptra costs more than a hyaluronic acid filler, it may be more cost effective given the long-lasting effects.
