Sculptra or poly-L-lactic acid is an injectable biostimulator. It is FDA approved dermal filler that is used to reduce deep wrinkles in your skin. The ingredient, Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) is a collagen stimulator that incorporates into the tissues and stimulates your body’s natural production of collagen.
How Does it Work?
As a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, Sculptra helps to restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin to diminish facial wrinkles. It works with your body within the deep dermis to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume. As the Sculptra PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production. Rebuilt collagen strands begin gradually helping to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds. The results of Sculptra are not immediate, as the treatment works by stimulating collagen production over time. You will gradually notice an improvement in the treated areas. Maintenance treatments may be recommended to maintain the desired outcome.
