Sculptra® in Waterloo & Kitchener

Sculptra® is an injectable cosmetic treatment that is designed to restore lost volume in the face and stimulate collagen production. It is made from a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is biocompatible and biodegradable.

Sculptra® works by stimulating the production of collagen, a key structural protein in the skin that gives it its firmness and elasticity. When Sculptra® is injected into the skin, it triggers a process called neocollagenesis, which causes the body to produce new collagen fibers. Over time, these new fibers help to restore volume and improve the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and folds in the face.

What Is Sculptra®?

Sculptra® is an FDA-approved biostimulator designed to stimulate collagen production and restore facial volume loss due to aging or weight loss. Unlike traditional fillers that provide immediate results, Sculptra® works gradually, enhancing the skin’s natural structure, restoring lost volume, and improving elasticity over time. Sculptra treatment is ideal for those seeking a natural-looking rejuvenation, making it a popular choice for individuals aiming to achieve a more youthful appearance. 

Sculptra® is primarily used on the face (refer to the image below for the facial treatment areas). It can also be used on the buttocks for a butt lift procedure.

How Does Sculptra® Work?

Sculptra® contains a biocompatible substance called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which is gradually absorbed by the body over time. As the PLLA breaks down, it triggers a process called neocollagenesis, in which the body produces new collagen fibers to replace the old ones. This process can lead to a gradual, natural-looking improvement in skin texture, firmness, and volume.
