Crepey skin in the knee area is a common part of the aging process, as it’s an effect of normal loss of skin elasticity over time. Sagging or crepey skin in this area can also be attributed to weight loss or excess sun exposure.
Sculptra is an FDA-approved biostimulatory injectable filler that helps gradually replace collagen (the protein in the body responsible for skin elasticity) that’s lost over time due to aging. Sculptra is composed of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible synthetic substance that stimulates the body’s collagen production.
When we inject Sculptra into the knee area, the product begins stimulating collagen synthesis in the treated area, which reduces crepiness and restores elasticity over time.
