Sculptra® is a "poly-L-acid" or PLLA, a synthetic lactic acid. Lactic acid is a natural product made in our muscles after exercise and gradually disappears. Sculptra stimulates your own cells to make collagen which is why it lasts longer. It is best used to improve cheek volume, define the jawline, correct hollow temples, as well as the nasolabial and melolabial folds.
Once a series of treatments is completed, the results can last up to two years. For optimal results one treatment yearly is recommended for maintenance. An average of 2-3 treatments about 4-6 weeks apart is recommended for your initial session.
A topical numbing cream is applied prior to your injection and the Sculptra is mixed with a local aesthetic to minimize any discomfort. Mild swelling and bruising at the injection sites is normal following your treatment.
