Sculptra Orange County

Sculptra is an injectable product that stimulates your body to produce collagen. It is not a true filler that is deposited in your skin and just sits there. It is designed to turn your body into a collagen producing factor to replace lost collagen and provide subtle, natural looking results. A full course of treatment with Sculptra, typically three injection sessions over a few months, has been shown to last up to two years.

Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades in surgical sutures.  As you get older, the production of collagen decreases. Collagen is a key component to maintaining the skin’s youthful and smooth appearance by giving the skin structure and retaining hyaluronic acid (lubricates the skin to keep it moist) and elastin (helps maintain shape).

Sculptra results are seen slowly as it takes time for your body to produce the collagen. You will notice the skin appears firmer and fuller, and areas of facial hollowness will slowly start to fill in over time as your body creates more collagen. ’s collagen structure is reinforced and fullness is gradually restored to deep facial folds and wrinkles.
