Sculptra® is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that appear with aging by replacing lost collagen. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades.

A full treatment of Sculptra® Aesthetic is an average of three injection sessions over a few months and can last more than two years. The number of injection sessions and the number of injections per session vary between individuals.
