INJECTABLE FILLER TREATMENTS
Unlike other dermal fillers, Sculptra® is considered to be a volumizer because it gives you the facelift-effect while also inducing natural collagen production. An FDA-approved injectable dermal filler made with poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA, a biodegradable synthetic substance that is absorbed naturally by the body. As the microparticles are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production. The rebuilt collagen strands gradually begin to rebuild the skin’s structural foundation and restore facial volume, diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and folds.
What benefits will you receive?
Noticeable results will start to be seen about a month after treatment and collagen growth will continue for about 4 – 6 months; results can last 2 – 3 years depending on the formulation and area injected; collagen growth from Sculptra may last up to 3 – 5 years.
It is best to have injections done at least 2 weeks before a large event in case of bruising or swelling.
