The Sculptra is a synthetic substance consisting of poly- L-lactic acid. It is a product entirely absorbed by the body, and it stimulates the formation and renewal of collagen in our skin. It is indicated for the treatment of wrinkles and sagging skin, for both face and body. It can be used to soften the signs of aging skin, increasing its thickness, correcting their contour, and smoothing out facial lines. This procedure lasts about 30 minutes and is done in the office under local anesthesia and without incisions. It is normally effective if done in 1 to 3 sessions on a case by case basis.
