Sculptra, the “liquid facelift”, works by filling in lines and wrinkles and by stimulating the body to produce new collagen. Sculptra is an injectable product that restores and corrects the signs of facial fat loss by replacing lost volume, facial fat loss, or lipoatrophy. Lipotrophy is the loss of fat beneath the skin, which can result in sunken cheeks, indentations, and hollow eyes.
Sculptra provides a gradual and significant increase in skin thickness, improving the appearance of folds and sunken areas. The results from Sculptra are not immediate but they are long-lasting. In a clinical study, effects lasted for up to two years after the first treatment session in most patients. No skin testing is required.
