Sculptra Aesthetic is a safe, synthetic material that is composed of poly-L-lactic acid. Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) is a biocompatible (does not harm the body), biodegradable (able to be broken down by the body) material that has been widely used for many years in surgical products. The Sculptra treatment is injected below the surface of the skin in the area of fat loss. It provides a gradual and significant increase in skin thickness by stimulating the body’s own collagen production, improving the appearance of folds and sunken areas.
Sculptra Aesthetic has been safely used outside the United States since 1999 in over 150,000 patients under the trade names New-Fill™ and Sculptra. Sculptra is not made from human or animal sources and does not require a skin test.
