The normal aging process causes us to lose volume in certain areas of our face. From this volume loss we appear older and less youthful and rejuvenated. Sculptra is an injectable product that is made to restore and correct the signs of facial aging and volume loss. Sculptra is composed of poly-L-lactic acid, a safe and synthetic product. Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) is biocompatible (does not harm the body) and biodegradable (able to be broken down by the body). PLLA has been widely used for many years in dis-solvable stitches, soft tissue implants and other types of implants.
Sculptra allows the aging process to not only be stopped but reverses it by allowing the body to create more collagen within the face which results in increased volume and youth. This procedure can be done quickly and safely within the office, results are gradual over the next 3 months and results can last up to 3 years.
