Unlike traditional fillers, Sculptra works by trying to help the body generate its own collagen through a series of injections spaced about 3 weeks apart. Sculptra is an injectable liquid made of Poly-L-Lactic Acid. This acid mimics the type of lactic acid you build up after you exercise. The acid acts as a messenger for your body to start producing its own collagen which gradually increases over time. Because Sculptra takes time to work this treatment is not for the patient that needs to see results immediately.
Sculptra is generally used in the cheek area for patients needing to replace significant volume loss. However, experienced injectors can use it in several different areas of the face including the jawline, temples, and chin. Once optimal results are achieved the correction can last around 2 years.
