Q: What is Sculptra used for?

What our experts say:

It’s a collagen-stimulating molecule. Whereas other products are used for lifting, sculpting or filling, Sculptra is used for volume replenishment. It causes the body to make collagen, and, unlike the other fillers, it requires a series of injections. It’s absolutely wonderful for sunken cheeks, fallen temples, filling out the jawline, and it can bridge the gap between filling lines and facial volume restoration. As we age,the face loses volume and everything goes south. Sculptra can reinflate the face and pull things north by creating collagen. You can combine Sculptra with other products. This really gives someone a renovation without surgical intervention.

It's a nice way of adding volume to the face, cheeks, temples and jaw. It's a different approach where volume is gradually restored, and it lasts up to two years. It stimulates collagen formation in the face.
