Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable that stimulates collagen production —the most common protein in the body that is used to form a framework to support cell and tissue— to build volume and improves the appearance of the skin. Sculptra works with your body within the deep dermis to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume. It can be used for facial volume loss, neck and chest crepiness, and to build a bigger booty. In addition to volumizing like a traditional filler, it improves texture of the overlying skin, leaving you natural and glowing for 2 years or more.
Sculptra is made with biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, 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.
The specialist injects treatment within the deep dermis, where strands of collagen support your skin’s structure. 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.
If you want to appear more youthful-looking – without appearing like you’ve had work done – chances are Sculptra may be a good choice for you.
