Sculptra is a non-surgical cosmetic injectable designed to combat signs of aging by stimulating collagen production. Used to address wrinkles, folds, and volume loss, Sculptra offers a natural-looking, long-lasting solution for individuals seeking a more youthful appearance.
Collagen: Your Skin’s Structural Framework
Collagen is a crucial protein that serves as the building block of our skin’s structure. It provides strength, elasticity, and firmness to the skin, ensuring a smooth and youthful appearance. As we age, collagen production decreases, leading to wrinkles, sagging, and loss of volume. Sculptra, a poly-L-lactic acid-based injectable, works by stimulating natural collagen production, gradually restoring the skin’s integrity and vitality. Dr. Schalit offers this innovative injectable to restore a more youthful and natural look that can last for months or even years.

There’s minimal downtime, allowing you to return to your daily activities almost immediately. The Sculptra results appear gradually over several weeks or months as your body produces new collagen fibers. You’ll notice a natural-looking improvement in skin texture, volume, and overall rejuvenation. The final results can last two years or more.
