As we age, we all lose bone and fat in the face—otherwise known as “sinking and sagging”. Sculptra replaces that lost volume and restores a more youthful shape and lift. Sculptra is a liquid injectable, not a conventional gel filler. Sculptra works by stimulating YOUR OWN collagen over a few months, so results are progressive and extremely natural. The choice between the HA gel fillers (Juvederm Voluma/Perlane) and Sculptra often comes down to the amount and areas where volume replacement is desired.
Depending on your age and volume loss, you may need 2-3 visits to get the desired lift. It can be used to fill both deep and shallow facial wrinkles and folds. Plus, it can be used simultaneously with other popular dermal fillers (see Liquid Lift).
The main ingredient in Sculptra, poly-L-lactic acid, is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been safely used by physicians for years. But, what really sets Sculptra apart from other fillers is how long it lasts! Typically, you can expect Sculptra to last about 2 years.
