What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is a bio-stimulatory injectable that stimulates collagen production via poly-L-lactic acid  (PLLA) microparticles to smooth wrinkles, tighten skin, and refresh overall skin appearance. It is different from hyaluronic acid dermal fillers in that it gradually restores your skin’s foundation for natural-looking firmness, improved skin quality, and long-lasting results.

Sculptra can be used to improve skin quality and restore volume in the cheeks as well as smooth smile lines and marionette lines. 

There are many benefits associated with Sculptra, including:

  • Reduces deep wrinkles.
  • Elevates sunken areas of the body.
  • Redefines or softens contours.
  • Natural-looking results
  • Non-surgical treatment 

Candidates for Sculptra

Ideal Sculptra candidates are 18 years or older with healthy immune systems who wish to correct nasolabial folds, fine lines and wrinkles, and lack of volume in the cheeks. You should not receive Sculptra injections if you are allergic to any of Sculptra’s ingredients, have a history of keloid formation, are pregnant, or are nursing.

The Sculptra Procedure

Sculptra works deep within the skin to help restore its structure. The poly-L-lactic acid microparticles are absorbed and help stimulate collagen production. Collagen will begin to rebuild gradually, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Sculptra Results and Recovery

Following Sculptra treatment, you may experience mild bruising, swelling, or soreness at the injection site. For best results, avoid strenuous activity and exercise for at least 24 hours after treatment. We will provide you with specific post-injection instructions to help ensure proper healing and maximize the benefits of treatment. 

Most patients can see noticeable improvements after just one month, with results lasting up to two years. On average, patients will need 2-3 treatment sessions spaced over the course of a few months. The number of injections at each treatment session will vary based on your individual goals.
