The only FDA approved hyaluronic acid filler for dynamic wrinkles and folds
Dynamic wrinkles and folds appear in areas of the face that move repetitively. Your face is dynamic, making millions of movements and micro-movements every day. Movements like squinting, frowning, laughing, and talking create dynamic wrinkles and folds. These wrinkles and folds can be difficult to treat because dermal fillers may cause the area to appear stiff or unnatural when the face moves.

This reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness of your shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that has been depleted over time. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades. By replacing lost collagen, Sculptra can help provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance.
