SCULPTRA WORKS WITH YOUR BODY TO HELP REBUILD LOST COLLAGEN
Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen—the most common protein in the body that is used to form a framework to support cells and tissue—for results that can last up to two years.
Sculptra works with your body within the deep dermis to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume to diminish facial wrinkles and folds over time.
Sculptra is made with biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments administered by a trained specialist.
As the Sculptra PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production. Rebuilt collagen strands begin gradually helping to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds. Your specialist injects treatment into the appropriate dermal plane where strands of collagen support your skin's structure. Once injected there is a 5x5x5 rule, (massage 5 minutes, 5 times a day for 5 days), Over time, Sculptra helps the body reproduce lost collagen.
The number of injection appointments and the number of injections per appointment vary from person to person, depending on how much collagen has been lost. On average, three injection appointments are needed over a period of a few months. Usually said for every decade of life, 1 vial of sculptra is needed.
