SCULPTRA (PLLA) is a bio-stimulating treatment. Sculptra works by addressing the underlying cause of aging skin from loss of collagen.
Once injected in the face, Sculptra stimulates the natural growth of new collagen. This leads to restoration of facial volume over time and a dramatic improvement of the skin texture.
LASTS FOR 25 MONTHS
With Sculptra, results are natural and become noticeable after 2-4 sessions (based on individual concerns and facial anatomy). The effects of Sculptra can last up to 25 months.
What are the Benefits?
Facial volume loss is common with aging as fatty tissue beneath the skin is lost over time, leading to wrinkles, folds and a hollowed appearance in the face. To address these concerns with guests at Akin, we suggest Sculptra for adding volume and structure. Unlike many other injectable facial fillers, Sculptra creates the production of new collagen leading to a much longer lasting result.
How does Sculptra work?
Sculptra is made up of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) with lactic acid as the main ingredient. Once Sculptra is injected, it restores wrinkles and hollowness in two different ways. First, it provides immediately volumization by filling in wrinkles and and depleted areas. The initial result is not as dramatic as it would be with other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. But the real result with Sculptra comes as the molecules stimulate the body’s production of collagen to thicken the skin and restore volume over time. This increases the skin’s resiliency to aging and gravity in general. Results are typically achieved within the first few Sculptra treatment sessions though up to 4 sessions may be needed for full improvement.
