Sculptra

Sculptra™ is a safe, synthetic, and biocompatible material that is injected below the surface of the skin in the area of fat loss.Sculptra™ provides a gradual and significant increase in skin thickness, improving the appearance of folds and sunken areas. For most people who participated in a clinical study, the treatment results lasted for up to two years after the first treatment session.

Because the main component in Sculptra™ a, poly-L-lactic acid, is a polymer synthetically derived from natural components and is a biocompatible substance, there is no need to test for allergic reactions. Poly-lactic acid has been used in surgical products for more than 20 years as a component of dissolvable sutures and is used as a vehicle for several sustained-release injectable medication.
