About

Sculptra

Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable designed to gradually replace lost collagen, the body's most abundant protein that provides structural support to cells and tissues. Its effects can last for up to two years. Functioning as a collagen stimulator with poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), Sculptra aims to rejuvenate the skin's deep, underlying structure, reducing facial wrinkles.

Sculptra operates within the deep dermis, working in harmony with your body to boost collagen production and rejuvenate the inner structure and volume of your skin. As Sculptra's PLLA microparticles are assimilated, they trigger collagen production. This process results in the gradual restoration of facial volume and a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and folds.

Sculptra is effective in treating a variety of concerns, including wrinkles on the cheeks, smile lines, marionette lines, as well as wrinkles on the neck, chest, and aging hands.

Sculptra is formulated from a biocompatible and biodegradable synthetic material known as poly-L-lactic acid. This substance is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body, and it aids in the gradual restoration of lost collagen through a series of treatments administered by a trained specialist.

Our skilled practitioners inject the treatment into the appropriate dermal layer, where collagen strands provide support to your skin's structure. Over time, Sculptra assists the body in regenerating lost collagen. The number of injection sessions and the quantity of injections during each session can vary from person to person, depending on the extent of collagen loss. On average, most individuals require three injection sessions spread out over several months.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Dermal Fillers and Collagen Biostimulators such as Sculptra?

Dermal fillers give instant results by filling lines and adding volume to specific areas like lips and cheeks. They can last up to two years.

Sculptra works gradually, stimulating collagen production to improve volume over time. Results can last over two years, but it requires multiple sessions.

So, if you want quick results for specific areas, go for dermal fillers. If you prefer longer-lasting and more gradual improvement for larger areas, consider Sculptra.

What areas can I treat with Sculptra?

At Integra Skinlab, our skilled practitioners administer Sculptra not only to the face but also to other body areas like hands, décolletage, buttocks, and arms.
