Works with your body within the deep dermis
Sculptra addresses the root causes of facial aging, not just the symptoms. As a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, Sculptra helps restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin to diminish facial wrinkles.
Slow and steady strength
Sculptra is made with a biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments.
This treatment is safe and FDA-approved, which means it has been found effective and low-risk on a majority of the patients involved in clinical trials. It helps gradually replace lost collagen—the most common protein in the body used to form a framework to support cells and tissue—for results that can last up to two years.
Who needs it?
While most people who receive this treatment are in their 30s or older, the best age to get Sculptra injections is when you are at least 18 years old and concerned about the appearance of moderate or severe volume loss.
Sculptra is the key to plumping hollow cheeks and sunken eyes. It also improves skin thickness, taking thin, aging skin and turning it into firmer, more youthful-looking skin. Since it works with your body's collagen to help it produce even more, it helps the skin's overall condition to improve itself.
Collagen production in the body decreases as you get older and/or are exposed to the sun. Wrinkles are one of the first visible aging signs of this.
Sculptra is an injectable bio-stimulator made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). Sculptra has a liquid consistency and is injected underneath the skin. As the beads biodegrade, the body may produce new collagen where Sculptra is injected.
Sculptra Aesthetic will be injected in multiple small amounts into the skin using a fine needle in a grid pattern to smooth the wrinkles.

The Answers You Need
How soon will I see my results?
Results are not immediate with Sculptra treatment. Remember, this isn’t a typical filler where voids are immediately filled with a replacement substance. It is a bio-activator designed to trigger your body to do its own filling of hollow areas and lines.
Some patients report results being seen shortly after their first treatment, but you will see maximum results between four and nine months. You’ll see positive changes in your face from the time of the last treatment until maximum results.
Can Sculptra be used with other injectables?
Because Sculptra doesn’t give immediate results, it’s not uncommon for it to be combined with more immediate injectables, particularly for patients who have upcoming special events. However, the need to combine different injectable treatments will depend on your exact aesthetic goals and the condition of your skin. Please consult our beauty experts about other treatments that may pair well with Sculptra.
If this treatment works well for you, there might not be any need to add other injectable treatments to achieve the desired results.
What are the side effects after the treatment?
Side effects could include injection site pain, redness, bruising, tenderness, minor bleeding, or swelling. The types and duration of side effects may vary by the individual patient.
