Sculptra® Injectable Poly-L-lactic Acid (PLLA)

Features & Benefits

Sculptra® poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) is an injectable collagen stimulator. When injected into the dermis, it stimulates fibroblasts to product new collagen.1 Sculptra® can stimulate the body’s own collagen growth to create VOLUME to correct the signs of facial ageing2, e.g. temple recession, areas of increased shadowing, to produce a long-lasting natural and youthful look.

Sculptra® distributed by Sanofi HK has been manufactured, handled, stored and transported under the highest standards of quality and strict control.

Treatment Results

A series of treatments (on average, 3 sessions) that give you a fresh look which can last for more than 2 years3.

Natural

  • Naturally absorbed by the body as it works gradually to stimulate collagen growth3
  • Contains PLLA which is from vegetable sources4. It can be eventually broken down into H2O (water), CO2 (carbon dioxide) and Lactic Acid 5-6
  • Treatment result is natural and gradual, will not affect facial expression

Noticeable and Long-lasting

  • An authoritative clinical study show that the intensity of type 1 collagen has significantly increased 67% after treatment with Sculptra® in 3 months7
  • A series of treatments (on average, 3 sessions) that give you a fresh look which can last for more than 2 years3

Reliable

  • The only aesthetic brand of PLLA approved by US FDA8
  • Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) has been used for over 30 years in medical applications2
  • Allergy testing is not required before clinical use2

Undesirable effects of Sculptra® may include temporary discomfort, redness, bruising, bleeding, itching, or swelling.1 Other undesirable effects may include small bumps, most of which are non-visible, under the treated skin. Larger lumps and skin discolouration have also been reported. The occurrence of lumps may be minimized by adhering to proper technique and massaging the treated areas.9
