Sculptra, an injectable cosmetic filler used to restore facial volume, is also used to help with upper knee skin laxity. Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid or PLLA, a biocompatible synthetic substance that stimulates collagen production.
Although Sculptra is used in the face for facial rejuvenation it can be injected in the knees to smooth out the wrinkles and crepey skin in that area.
For most aesthetic patients, you will need several sessions to relieve saggy knees. There is a little downtime, and you may have a bit of swelling, numbness, and redness for a few hours following the procedure.
How Does Sculptra for Knees Work?
Collagen is the main component in keeping your skin looking smooth, and as you grow older your natural production of collagen decreases, and wrinkles begin to form. Using Sculptra at the hands of a certified aesthetician you can gracefully restore the skin above your knees.
