Understanding Sculptra

As we age, cheeks lose their fullness, along with their ability to support the nasolabial folds. Rather than replacing lost volume like replacement fillers, stimulating fillers like Sculptra contain microscopic particles that actually prompt your skin to produce more collagen, in turn rebuilding the skin's support structure and restoring a more youthful appearance.

The boost in collagen is essentially an immune reaction to the filler that helps plump the injected area from within. This allows Sculptra to decrease the appearance of nasolabial folds by building up the midface. Rather than filling lines like traditional fillers, it adds volume that lifts the soft tissues, ultimately diminishing lines that way.
