Sculptra

Sculptra, nicknamed the “Liquid Facelift”, is an incredible facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps replace lost collagen. With its biocompatible and biodegradable characteristics in the inner layer of the skin, it yields remarkable efficacy by stimulating collagen regeneration and correcting facial tissues. There will not be any residue in the body since poly-L-lactic acid can be biodegradable into lactic acid, carbon dioxide and water, which will be absorbed naturally by the body.

Safety

  • The medical practitioner who is in charge of the treatment must receive pharmaceutical training to ensure that he knows very well the procedures and injection techniques of PLLA.
