Unlike hyaluronic acid filler, Sculptra addresses the underlying causes of facial aging, rather than just the symptoms. As we age, the skin’s natural capacity to replace collagen diminishes with each passing year. On average, we lose 1% of collagen every year, resulting in the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and overall volume loss. Over the course of a series of treatments, Sculptra replenishes lost collagen and activates the skin’s natural regenerative process. As a result, it subtly restores facial volume and improves the appearance of wrinkles.
