What Causes Cellulite?
Sometimes called an orange-skin peel appearance of the skin, cellulite is when an area of skin looks lumpy. Although it can occur anywhere, it most commonly affects the thighs and the buttocks. Cellulite appears when the fat deposits are able to push up through the connective tissues and been seen beneath the skin.
A whopping 80 to 90% of women will experience this issue at sometimes in their lives. It can happen to even those who are considered physically fit or young. There are three different “grades” of cellulite depending on the severity of it.
How Can Sculptra® Help?
Sculptra® is an injectable poly-L-lactic acid filler. When injected strategically into the problem area(s) for cellulite treatment, it encourages the body to essentially “heal” itself and to create new collagen. It is injected into the deep dermis, but not near the bone or into fat. This helps fill in any dimples caused by the cellulite while also smoothing out the tight fascia that has developed underneath your skin. Your skin is left looking smoother, firmer, and younger.

They are not instant because your body needs the time to produce new collagen.
