Loss of collagen as you age is one of the biggest factors that affect your appearance. Collagen is a chemical compound that makes your skin firmer and increases the elasticity of your skin.

Sad to say, this decrease in collagen is what causes wrinkles and sagging skin. Many solutions are being investigated, and dermal fillers are products that turn back the hands of time. Derma fillers are injected directly into problem areas, and one such dermal filler that is popular is Sculptra Aesthetic.

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is an injectable cosmetic filler that is injected deep into the dermis and gradually improves the treated area. It is used to restore facial volume lost due to aging or illness. Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic and acid (PLLA), which is a biocompatible synthetic substance that stimulates collagen production. Sculptra can be used to treat deep lines, creases, and folds to give you a more youthful appearance.

Sculptra is an injectable that helps stimulate your skin’s natural collagen production. It helps restore inner structure ad increase facial volume that has been lost to aging. Sculptra is for those people with healthy immune systems. It is a one-time treatment of up to four injection sessions that are scheduled three weeks apart.

Is Sculptra Safe?

Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA approved injectable that gradually replaces lost collagen. The results from Sculptra can last up to two years.

Sculptra needs to be injected by a certified specialist who can inject Sculptra deep into the dermis. Side effects may include redness, swelling, lumps, tenderness, bruising at the injection sites, and some bleeding. These are side effects that are expected and resolve over time.
