Sculptra treatment in Mississauga.
What is Sculptra?
Initially introduced to correct the volume loss in different facial areas, Sculptra has, over the years, come to be known as a powerful solution in collagen production. Sculptra is used to fill in dimples and hollowness in the face, as well as for the creases in the butt to make it fuller & more voluminous. The latter is known as “Sculptra BBL”, the non-surgical Brazilian Butt Lift. Since it is a minimally invasive procedure, it is a great alternative to other more intense surgical options which require a lengthy recovery period. Sculptra is truly a multipurpose collagen stimulant as it can be used anywhere, from one’s face to behind.
How Does Sculptra Work?
Sculptra stimulates one's own body to produce collagen in response to Poly L Lactic Acid, which is its main component. Once the treatment is done, collagen gradually builds up over the next few weeks, improving the appearance of your results. It may take a couple of months for the results to truly become apparent, and it only gets better! What makes Sculptra different is that it is a collagen stimulator and not a dermal filler. This means that the process of Sculptra itself is not providing the filling. Instead, it stimulates the skin to form new collagen. Once Sculptra is injected, it is absorbed by the surrounding tissue and goes away about 1-2 years after your treatment. The new collagen which is produced as a result can last many more years, making it an effective non-surgical solution.

Sculptra treatments can be done in about 30 minutes. Moreover, they are painless and require no downtime except for bruising. The results from a Sculptra treatme
