What is Sculptra Aesthetic?
Sculptra (poly-L lactic acid) is a revolutionary injectable filler that offers long-lasting results for smoothing deep facial wrinkles around the mouth and on the cheeks. This product works gradually to contribute to a more youthful appearance, giving the face back its volume, smoothing deep wrinkles, and stimulating natural collagen production for results that endure.
Its restorative properties give back some of the skin’s collagen that has been lost due to the aging process. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, Sculptra is injected under the skin, not into it.
