Sculptra / PLLA

The treatment

PLLA has been shown to be an effective and safe substance to restore collagen production in the skin. Sculptra is therefore a popular choice for people who want to regain more youthful skin with less visible signs of ageing.

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is a treatment used to increase the body’s own production of collagen, thereby improving the skin’s elasticity, giving it more radiance and volume.

The active ingredient in Sculptra is a biodegradable acid (poly-L-lactide acid; PLLA), which stimulates the body’s own production of collagen. As we age, the production of collagen in the body decreases, leading to wrinkles, fine lines and a loss of skin volume and elasticity. Sculptra PLLA helps to counteract this process to provide a firmer, smoother and more youthful appearance.

PLLA has been shown to be an effective and safe substance to restore collagen production in the skin. Sculptra is therefore a popular choice for people who want to regain more youthful skin with less visible signs of ageing.

What is treated?

Sculptra PLLA is usually injected into areas that need volume or where there are wrinkles or fine lines. Common areas include apple cheeks, cheekbones, nasolabial folds (folds between the nose and mouth) and temples. The treatment consists of several injections usually performed over a series of three sessions, with about 6-8 weeks between each session.

How long does the effect last?

After a series of Sculptra injections, it can take up to six months for the final results of the treatment to become visible. This is because Sculptra works by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production, which takes time to build up under the skin. It is important to be patient and give the treatment enough time to work. Results can last up to two years, depending on the patient’s age, skin type and lifestyle.
