Sculptra Injectable

Sculptra Injectable

Sculptra works with your body to help rebuild.

Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen—the most common protein in the body that is used to form a framework to support cells and tissue—for results that can last up to two years.1,4,5,6*

Sculptra Before and After

Not All Anti-Aging Treatments Are the Same:

Collagen creams: Collagen creams do not fully penetrate to the dermis, so most topical treatments are effective as moisturizers that briefly improve the skin’s appearance.7-9

Collagen Supplements: When ingested, the digestive system breaks down collagen proteins and their effectiveness remains inconclusive.10,11

Toxins: Toxins temporarily weaken muscles to minimize frown lines in the forehead. Results typically last a couple months.12,13

Fillers: Works immediately upon injection to fill in lines, wrinkles and folds.14
