Sculptra® stands apart from all other dermal fillers and cosmetic injectables because of its unique composition. Unlike other non-invasive facial treatments, Sculptra® is composed of poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen over time. Hyaluronic acid-based and chemical-based injectables, such as BOTOX®, Restylane®, and Juvederm®, produce results within a matter of days, if not hours, so you can look and feel rejuvenated shortly after treatment. Results are temporary, however, and must be maintained through regular appointments approximately every six months. Sculptra®, on the other hand, produces results slowly, allowing for a more natural-looking rejuvenation to occur over time while simultaneously stimulating collagen production.
Collagen is a natural protein in the body that promotes smooth, elastic skin. In this way, results remain noticeable up to 2 years, 4 times longer-lasting than other cosmetic injectable treatments. When results from Sculptra® eventually begin to fade, your skin will still remain more youthful-looking compared to its original appearance before treatment, thanks to Sculptra®’s exceptional ability to stimulate collagen. Other cosmetic injectables leave you looking the same as you began when results fade over time, but Sculptra® helps you look younger as the years pass.
