What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is an FDA-approved dermal filler that is made of poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic sugar that stimulates collagen. Collagens, on the other hand, are naturally-produced proteins that are vital for promoting glowing, vibrant skin. Therefore, Sculptra, can untimely promote natural-looking and radiant skin.
Additionally, Sculptra Aesthetic goes to the source of facial gaining. This treatment works gradually, in a series of treatments, to produce a more youthful-looking appearance over time. Sculptra is naturally absorbed by the body as it works to replace lost collagen. This reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that aids to restore a fuller look to the shallow or deeper wrinkles and folds.
