Thanks to today’s plethora of effective and safe dermal fillers, facial contouring with injectables is able to create stunning, sustainable results that compare to those of plastic surgery procedures. Our Sculptra in San Diego, approved by the FDA in 2009, is among the most popular methods of correcting unwanted wrinkles, folds and creases that plague the face as it matures. Scuptra can also reduce facial scarring and restore facial symmetry.

What is the Big Deal About Collagen?

When browsing plastic surgery website and brochures, one hears frequently about collagen, especially in regards to non-surgical facial rejuvenation. Collagen is a protein found naturally in the human body. It allows moisture to bind to the skin, and plumps the skin for a youthful, glowing look that radiates beauty.

As the body ages, it tends to lose its store of collagen, creating a hollow, tired aesthetic that is not as pleasing. Therefore, a variety of dermal fillers, including Sculptra in San Diego, are formulated to help replace this lost collagen, thus maximizing the skin’s suppleness and resilience once more.

What is Sculptra Made of?

Sculptra’s main ingredient is poly-L-lactic acid (PLA), a compound that has previously been employed as a component of dissolvable stiches and bone plates. PLA comes from lactic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body and works to boost the metabolism of cellular debris.
