Polylactic acid (Sculptra)

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.

In case of younger patients, it is used as a prophylaxis, and one treatment is often enough to see the increase of skin thickness.
