Sculptra is a long-lasting, FDA approved treatment for the replacement of lost collagen, which is the foundation of your face. Sculptra can last up to 2 years and beyond. Sculptra is injected into the face in areas where volume has been lost, and stimulates your body to build up its own collagen.

What is Sculptra and how does it work?

Sculptra Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps your body to replace lost collagen. Collagen is the building block that keeps your skin looking youthful and smooth; it is the foundation to your face. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades.
