What is Sculptra?

Featured Image

Sculptra is a type of cosmetic injectable that is used to restore volume and fullness to the face by stimulating the growth of collagen. The main active ingredient in Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid, which is a biocompatible and biodegradable substance that has been used in medical applications for many years.

When Sculptra is injected into the skin, it works by stimulating the production of collagen, which is a natural protein that helps to support and firm the skin. As collagen production increases, the skin becomes more voluminous and plump, which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging.

Sculptra typically requires a series of injections over several months to achieve the desired results, and the effects can last for up to two years or more. It is commonly used to treat wrinkles and other signs of aging in the cheeks, temples, and chin, as well as to improve the appearance of scars and other skin irregularities. However, Sculptra should only be administered by a licensed medical professional who has been trained in its use
