Urbane Beauty Co. proudly offers Sculptra® injections from certified experts in Latham, NY to battle aging skin.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is an injectable that helps fight aging skin that is offered by Urbane Beauty Co’s professionals here in Latham, NY. The main ingredient in its formula is poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which is responsible for stimulating collagen, providing long-lasting results. Although nowadays this is an incredibly popular way of getting youthful skin, Sculptra injections are not new. They were first introduced in 1999. Since then, this injection has helped many people address their skin concerns.
Sculptra is amazing for anyone looking to achieve a more youthful look! It is used to diminish facial wrinkles and folds and has been clinically approved to treat smile lines and other wrinkles around the nose and mouth as well as chin wrinkles. It delivers extremely natural results. Sculptra works with your body to stimulate collagen production lost to aging, rebuilding and reinforcing your skin’s structural foundation. Through a series of treatments, typically about three sessions over a few months, it restores the support and volume of youthful-looking skin, providing results that can last up to two years.
