Sculptra™ is slightly different from other dermal fillers and collagen injections, which typically only add volume.  Sculptra is a synthetic polymer of polylactic acid (PLA), that, when injected deep into the layers of skin, induces the formation of collagen. Sculptra is usually completely reabsorbed within several weeks. However, the newly formed collagen should last much longer. This is also very different from standard injectable collagen; regular collagen shots are derived from bovine tissue, which can cause allergic reactions, human tissue or synthetically. Additionally, standard collagen injections are often absorbed completely within 4-6 months. The new collagen formed by Sculptra has been shown to be present after 5 years of initial treatment. Sculptra is commonly used to treat sunken cheeks, indentations, lipoatrophy (loss of facial fat), and hollow eyes for a more youthful appearance.

If you're thinking that Sculptra might be the dermal injectable for you, but have more questions or need a second opinion, contact our representatives. Not only can they give you more information about Sculptra, they can schedule your first treatment consultation with a cosmetic provider in your area; then you can get a professional's recommendation on the treatment that will be best suited to your needs.
