S

culptra is an injectable treatment that helps treat the visible signs of aging and replace lost collagen. This poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator not only helps to restore volume to the face and smooth out wrinkles or creases, but addresses the underlying cause of facial aging. Sculptra can also be used for large-volume corrections of facial fat loss.

Sculptra injections work deep in the dermis to help revitalize collagen production, and restore your skin’s inner volume and structure, resulting in a youthful, natural-looking appearance. After treatment, results will appear gradually and can last up to two years.
