Sculptra® is an injectable filler is that produces long lasting, gradual results. This means that for men and women who receive treatment, the increase in volume will appear more naturally. Sculptra® is used as a wrinkle corrector as well as a repair for lipoatrophy, or facial fat loss.
Sculptra® is considered an excellent option for those who suffer from sunken temples and cheeks caused by facial lipoatrophy. It is also used to correct marionette, chin and smile lines, and to restore volume to the middle third of the face. Sculptra® is composed of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that replenishes depleted collagen. The results achieved in treatment are both gradual and long lasting, both of which are selling points for many patients.
