Sculptra: syringe against flaccidity

One of the biggest complaints from dermatology patients are the signs caused by flaccidity, when the skin looks “wrinkled”, loose and with many side markings.

One of the options for treating these areas is Sculptra, a polymer acid that is injected into the skin to stimulate the production of collagen fibers. “The technique has been in use for a long time in the face and, more recently, it has also been applied in the arms, thighs, elbows and knees,” explains Dr. Annia Cordeiro, director of the Annia Cordeiro Skin Clinic, dermatology center in Curitiba (PR).

The average recommendation is for two or three sessions, with an interval of four to six weeks between them. The results begin to appear between 10 and 20 days after the application and become more evident after the second session.

The duration of the effects from Sculptra is up to two years, since the microparticles take long to be absorbed by the body. More information at (41) 3026-1790 or
