Sculptra is a filler based on poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which acts as a collagen stimulator and has a pronounced rejuvenating effect, tightens the skin of the face and body, smooths out scars and wrinkles, makes the skin elastic and radiant.

What is Sculptra?

Clinical trials of SCULPTRA show that three months after its injection into the skin, the amount of collagen in it increases by 66.5%. The skin is noticeably tightened, deep folds and wrinkles disappear, and lost facial volume is restored. With the help of Sculptra, facial asymmetry is also can be  ideally corrected. Gradual volume restoration can be an advantage for many patients who want to maintain individuality while correcting signs of aging.

What does Sculptra contain?

Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid, which is a fruit acid and is natural to the body. Due to the absence of foreign antigens in its composition, Sculptra is well accepted by the human body, minimizing the manifestations of allergic reactions.

Poly-L-lactic acid activates fibroblasts, which are responsible for the synthesis of connective tissue cells and the production of new collagen and elastin in the skin, which are responsible for skin elasticity and the absence of wrinkles.

While Sculptra is in the tissues, the formation of new connective fibers is constantly stimulated. This manifests itself by replenishing lost tissue volume and rejuvenation. The most important thing is that collagen stimulation with Sculptra is achieved using the human dermiss own reserves.

After the effect of the injectable has ended, poly-L-lactic acid breaks down into the final products of metabolism (water and carbon dioxide) and is completely eliminated from the body.
