In addition to Botox, facial wrinkle fillers have demonstrated great promise in nonsurgical facial rejuvenation. In the past, fillers were primarily collagen-based products which required skin testing and could be associated with allergic reactions. In the past few years, newer more sophisticated products have become available which are better tolerated, last longer, and feel more natural. Hyaluronic acid fillers are the most popular fillers in use today.
Youthful skin starts within.  In the very crowded space of facial fillers, Sculptra is unique.  Traditional fillers are liquid or gel substances such as hyaluronic acid that diminish lines by simply filling.  Results are immediate and last 6 to 24 months depending on the type of filler.  Sculptra is both a filler and a collagen stimulant.  Sculptra diminishes facial wrinkles by restoring the deep, underlying structure of the skin.  Results appear gradually over the treatment regime which is typically three injections over the course of three to four months.  Sculptra typically lasts about 24 months.  Sculptra contains PLLA microparticles which stimulate collagen over time; restoring facial volume, rejuvenating the skin and improving wrinkles and folds.
Sculptra is both a long lasting filler and a collagen stimulant.  Therefore, Sculptra works by both filling and replacing lost collagen.  Because of the collagen stimulation, Sculpta is both natural and long lasting.  Sculptra is both a short term filler and a longer lasting way to turnover and stimulate collagen in your face.
