Sculpt Your Skin From Within

Replenishing the collagen in your skin will undoubtedly help you with winging the ten-year- challenge. Depletion of collagen content in the skin is the cause for aging skin changes.  Sculptra is made of Poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible and resorbable (can be broken down by our bodies) compound. When injected into the skin, it stimulates the skin to produce MORE collagen. Being resorbable, it leaves no trace of Sculptra over time but the collagen that it stimulates your body to produce stay for 2-3 years, depending on your age and the number of treatments.
