A different kind of dermal fillerMost dermal fillers work in similar ways. They are thick gels, injected in sufficient quantity to instantly lift tissue. The results gradually diminish as the product dissolved. Sculptra is different. It does not directly add volume. Instead, it gives your body the tools to create its own volume, naturally and subtly, with results lasting up to two years.
Sculptra is a collagen stimulator, which has been used in many countries since 1999. It was first FDA approved in 2004 for the treatment of facial fat loss in HIV patients, and later gained approval for cosmetic use. More than 150,000 patients around the world have received Sculptra treatment, and it has an excellent record of safety.
