Polylactic acid (Sculptra) is the substance for boosting the synthesis of our own collagen leading to skin becoming firmer and more tense. The preparation can be used regardless of age. It is great especially for women and men around 35 years of age or older. In case of younger patients, it is used as a prophylaxis, and one treatment is often enough to see the increase of skin thickness.
The preparation in a form of suspension is injected inside dermis in small portions through a syringe with a thin needle.
The effect of rejuvenation is not immediate. Changes in skin caused by the application of Sculptra preparation take place gradually within a few weeks, which leads to rejuvenation of the treated area, but what is important, in a natural way, without an unnatural stringing effect. The result of the treatment is increased density of tissues and skin elasticity, shallowing wrinkles and furrows, enhancement of face oval.
The therapy consists of 2 – 4 treatments (depending on advancement of aging processes) with 6-week breaks or longer.
The effect after the series of treatments lasts for approximately 2 years.
In some cases bruises may appear in places of blood vessel damage, but they disappear after 5-10 days.
