Sculptra Filler Information

As a facial filler, Sculptra® (injectable poly-L lactic acid) can help stimulate the body to replace lost collagen. This product is injected into the facial area and can help correct facial fat loss, wrinkles, and fold lines. Sculptra comes in the form of an injection. In many cases, multiple treatments are necessary to achieve the desired result.
This facial filler is not appropriate for everyone; your healthcare provider needs complete information on your medical history and what medications you are taking before prescribing Sculptra.
Although many people do not have any problems while using Sculptra, side effects can occur and may include swelling, tenderness, and pain. If negative reactions do occur, they tend to be mild and easily treated.
