Sculptra® is not actually a filler, but rather a catalyst that causes the growth of your own tissue (collagen). Because it is only a catalyst for something you already have in your skin, the amount of collagen production and longevity of results will vary from one patient to another. The results from Sculptra®, however, have been noted to 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.
