Sculptra® is a cosmetic injectable product that stimulates your own natural collagen production that can be used to treat cellulite at Arcadia Wellness Center.
Cellulite is a pesky annoyance that many of us have and hate, especially when swimsuit season is nearly year-round here in Phoenix.
To treat cellulite, Sculptra is injected in the areas where the dimpling is seen. The injections will cause some bruising that can take some time to clear up, but the results will be worth it. Over the next 6 weeks, the injections will stimulate collagen production, restoring support, structure, elasticity and a more youthful appearance to the skin.
The active ingredient in Sculptra is injectable poly-L-lactic acid, also known as PLLA. PLLA is synthetic and NOT derived from animal or human sources (such as cadaver material). The main ingredient of Sculptra has been used for more than 30 years for medical applications such as dissolvable sutures, and as a medium for administering medication. PLLA is made from lactic acid, a natural substance that is necessary for cellular metabolism. Lactic acid is already present in the human body and is created by the muscles during exercise.
Arcadia Wellness Center is offering Fabulous Arizona readers a free consultation and $100 off a Sculptra cellulite treatment.
