PLLA (Poly-L-Lactic Acid) is a kind of collagen stimulator that helps to promote collagen growth and restores volume by your own collagen.
Fillers are liquid or gel substances, like hyaluronic acid or bovine or porcine collagen, that diminish lines by pushing up the dermis space beneath wrinkles and creases. Results appear immediately and can last up to several months.
Collagen stimulators are used to diminish facial wrinkles by helping to restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin. Results appear gradually over the treatment regime (typically three injections over the course of three to four months) and can last up to two years.
As a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, it is different. It works with your body within the deep dermis, rather than topically, to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume. As the PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production. Rebuilt collagen strands begin gradually helping to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds.
We utilize PLLA manufactured by Sanofi-Aventis, it has FDA approval for correction of shallow to deep nasolabila fold contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles.
