Sculptra is a novel injectable that stimulates the skin’s collagen synthesis to help restore the cheeky plumpness of healthy skin, which helps to combat wrinkles and sagging skin. It’s a non-invasive alternative to injectable dermal fillers, skin creams, fat injections, and implants for anti-aging. Collagen is a structural protein that can be found in connective tissue. Its job is to keep the skin tight, smooth, and youthful. As you become older, your body’s collagen production declines, and wrinkles and sagging may appear. Drooping skin, hollowed cheeks, indentations, and depressions in the face are all signs of fat loss beneath the skin.
Sculptra helps to repair shallow to deep facial creases and folds by stimulating your skin to rebuild its own natural collagen over time, resulting in firmer, younger-looking skin. It is important to know that Sculptra is simply a collagen stimulator. The filling action is not provided by the Sculptra; rather, the Sculptra produces a reaction in the skin that results in the formation of new collagen. The Sculptra is absorbed by the tissue and disappears after about 2 years, but the new collagen layer that is left behind may endure for another 2 years or more. Most skin abnormalities require a SERIES of treatments with Sculptra to achieve appropriate filling.
