What is Sculptra?
Sculptra® is an injectable poly-L-lactic acid, which works with your body to help rebuild lost collagen for a more youthful-looking appearance that can last up to two years.
It’s used to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds, particularly those between the nose and mouth (smile lines, the lines framing your mouth (marionette lines), and chin wrinkles.
How does it work?
Sculptra works to replace lost collagen in series of treatments, reinforcing your skin’s structure and gradually restoring the look of fullness of your shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds. This can provide a more refined, more youthful appearance.
What are the side effects and risks?
Side effects can include but are not limited to: injection site pain, redness, bruising, bleeding or swelling. Small bumps under the skin that can sometimes be noticeable when pressing on the treated area may also occur. Larger lumps with or without inflammation have also been reported.
