Sculptra™ is a new injectable product used to counteract the loss of fat beneath the skin (a condition called lipoatrophy). Sculptra is injected into the deep dermis layer of the skin to improve the appearance of sunken cheeks, hollow eyes, indentations and wrinkles. Its main component is an alpha hydroxy acid that has been used for 20 years in surgical products such as dissolvable sutures. The polylactic acid induces new collagen formation in the skin in a natural, gradual way. There is no need for allergy testing. Clinical trials have shown that the benefits of Sculptra treatments can last up to two years.
