Sculptra® is a bio-stimulating treatment that brings back “bounce” to the skin from aging and loss of collagen. Unlike most fillers, this treatment uses poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which is a bio-stimulator injectable treatment. This acid has a more liquid consistency instead of a gel and is injected directly under the skin. The effects of Sculptra® are subtle, natural, and gradual. The PLLA builds up collagen production over time, leaving you with longer-lasting results.


What is Sculptra®?

Sculptra® is a facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen. It helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that appear with aging. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades.

This treatment is the first facial injectable that gives you subtle results over time. This filler replaces lost collagen and gives you a natural-looking appearance without giving you away. A full treatment of Sculptra®, an average of three injection sessions over a few months, can last more than two years!

What Areas of the Face Can be Treated?

Sculptra® helps restore facial volume while smoothing out skin texture. Sculptra® works great when injected in the following areas: 

  • Temples
  • Mid-Cheek
  • Lower Face 
  • Chin

In order to get the most from your Sculptra® treatment, we recommend massaging the injected area five times a day for five days in order to evenly distribute the collagen-stimulating acid.

What Can I Expect From The Treatments?

Several treatment sessions over the course of a few months are needed for the best results. The number of injections during each session will vary depending on the degree of correction your need. During treatments, you may experience some mild discomfort, redness, and bruising. However, you can return to your regular activities immediately after treatment, as Sculptra® doesn’t require any downtime.

How Long Does Sculptra® Last?

Sculptra®  is used to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds. This filler is best for addressing the following concerns:

  • Deep folds between the nose and the mouth (nasolabial folds), also called smile lines
  • The lines framing your mouth (marionette lines)
  • Chin wrinkles

Results are long-lasting and can effectively smooth your skin, leaving you wrinkle-free for several years. Touchups can be scheduled to prolong these results.
