Collagen is a naturally-occurring protein in the body, which is responsible for the plumpness and elasticity of the skin. As you age, the body’s production of collagen is reduced, causing skin to droop and feel loose. Sculptra® aesthetic is a filler consisting of poly-L-lactic acid, which helps replace lost collagen over time. As a result, it corrects deep facial wrinkles, and folds that appear with age, specifically: - Deep nasolabial folds, or smile lines between your nose and the corner of your mouth - Marionette lines, or the lines framing your mouth - Wrinkles above your chin line, under the lower lip One of the benefits of using Sculptra® aesthetic is the gradual and subtle correction of wrinkles over time. For patients who prefer to keep their cosmetic treatments a secret, Sculptra® aesthetic may be a great option. Sculptra® can also be used for a non-surgical butt-lift.
