Poly-l-lactic-acid (Sculptra®)

Poly-l-lactic-acid (Sculptra Aesthetic®) is a polylactic acid product that works to replace lost collagen.  As we age our collagen production decreases and results in the development of facial wrinkles, loose skin, loss of facial volume, as well as deep facial folds. PLLA (PolyLactic Acid) works to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds due to its stimulatory effect on collagen providing a refined, more youthful looking appearance. 

This one-day comprehensive certificate course will include a didactic overview of history, chemical and biological properties, bio-degradation, facial anatomy and physiology, facial aging for appropriate selection of indications for treatment. In addition, the training will also include contraindications, complications and side effects, as well as prevention and management of complications.  During the training, you will learn special techniques to correct deep folds, sunken cheeks, wrinkles and lines in the cheeks or chin, and deep scars.
Live demonstration explaining the procedure and techniques will enhance your knowledge to prepare you for the hands-on practice sessions. With our classes being limited to small groups, our student to instructor ratio followed by our intense afternoon hands-on sessions will provide a tailored one-on-one experience.
