As you age, collagen production diminishes, and your skin doesn’t have the same resiliency and fullness it did in the past. Sculptra®is a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA)–based treatment that works with your body to stimulate collagen production lost to aging, rebuilding and reinforcing your skin’s structural foundation. Through a series of treatments, typically about three sessions over a few months, it restores the support and volume of youthful looking skin, providing results that can last up to two years.
Sculptra is best for people who want a natural, youthful-looking appearance that lasts up to two years. Sculptra can be used across a range of patient ages but may be especially well suited for younger patients—those in their 30s or early 40s who are just seeing the first signs of collagen depletion and volume loss. For middle-aged patients who have begun to experience more notable volume loss, Sculptra can be beneficial and may offer different benefits than hyaluronic acid fillers, such as gradual results and a longer duration of effect.
