Sculptra works by being carefully injected into the deep dermis layer of the skin. Once administered, the poly-L-lactic acid particles stimulate collagen synthesis, resulting in a gradual improvement in the skin's thickness and elasticity. Unlike some other dermal fillers, Sculptra does not provide immediate results. Instead, the effects develop over several months, creating a more natural and subtle enhancement.

Most patients require 2-3 treatment sessions spaced several weeks apart for optimal results. The outcome of Sculptra treatments can last up to two years, providing patients with a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance. This longevity makes Sculptra an appealing option for individuals seeking a long-lasting solution to address facial aging concerns.
