Sculptra® is not actually a filler, but rather a catalyst that causes the growth of your own tissue (collagen). Because of this, the amount of collagen production and longevity of results will vary from one patient to another. The results from Sculptra® can last up to two years.
The benefits of Sculptra® include an increase in face volume and thickness of the skin, which can produce a healthier, youthful appearance. This is why the term “liquid facelift” has been used to describe the relatively dramatic results of Sculptra®. The polylactic acid in Sculptra® is inert, biologically, so the risk of allergic reactions is eliminated.
