Sculptra is an injectable material containing microparticles of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) which when injected into the skin of the face stimulates collagen production. While the Sculptra material is eventually dissolved by the body, the collagen production effectively reduces wrinkles and adds volume to the areas injected. During the aging process, our faces slowly lose the fat that normally provides the smooth curves and volume that are typical of a more youthful appearance. Sculptra is designed to give the face the subtle volume replacement and reduce the wrinkles that occur with aging. It is a revolutionary new product in that there are no other injectables that do this. It has been available in the United States since 2009, but used in Europe for over a decade. The results have been shown to last 2 years or more.
