How Does Sculptra Work ?
Sculptra is a natural collagen stimulator, which restores facial volume simply and safely. It improves the quality of the skin, giving a natural youthful glow. Results are gradual, and achieved over a number of treatments, determined by the degree of correction. This will be determined during your consultation with Dr Weber, who administers the treatment. The substance injected causes a reaction within the skin to activate the production of new and healthy skin cells.
