What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen to restore volume and fullness. It is made of Poly-L-Lactic Acid, the synthetic form of lactic acid, which the body produces naturally. This substance induces the natural creation of collagen.

Sculptra® Aesthetic works subtly and gradually over time for a more youthful-looking appearance. Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Sculptra® Aesthetic helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost to aging.

Collagen Loss: The Cause of Visible Aging

One of the primary reasons for visible facial aging is the loss of collagen, a fibrous protein in the deep dermis that gives structure to skin and supports the functions of elastin and hyaluronic acid (HA). Elastin is a protein that maintains skin shape, while HA cushions and lubricates to keep the skin hydrated. More collagen enables the presence of more elastin and HA.
