Facial fat loss – also referred to as lipoatrophy – is a natural consequence of the natural aging process. This results in hollow eyes, sunken cheeks, and indentations that can rob your attractiveness and negatively affect your self-esteem. Sculptra® is an injectable filler that aims to replace lost fat to achieve a rejuvenated and youthful facial appearance.
How Does Sculptra® Work?
Sculptra® dermal filler is formulated from poly l lactic acid. When injected beneath the skin, it is absorbed to create a temporary scaffolding that supports superficial tissues. This explains why improvements after aSculptra® session are noticeable almost immediately.
In addition to contributing to a volume increase with its microparticles, poly l lactic acid contained in Sculptra® also stimulates new collagen production. This results in smoother and younger-looking skin.
While outcomes vary from patient to patient, the result of a single Sculptra® treatment can last for as long as 2 years. Many patients will need a number of injections spaced out over months in order to achieve their desired cosmetic appearance.
