Fast Facts

Sculptra

As we age, hollowness and volume loss can occur in the jawline, cheeks, and temples. Sculptra®, formulated with poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), works by stimulating the body’s collagen production, gradually volumizing tissue. It is the first FDA-approved injectable treatment for restoring facial volume lost due to aging or illness.

While other products like Juvederm® and RHA® are effective at treating deep folds and wrinkles, Sculptra® excels at creating the volume and structure required for significant improvements.

In addition to boosting facial volume, Sculptra® can be used for non-invasive butt lifts. Sculptra® buttocks treatments involve strategic injections to thicken the skin and stimulate collagen production over several months, resulting in firmer, shapelier buttocks.

Sculptra® results typically last two to five years, significantly longer than the six to twelve months of most dermal fillers.

How does Sculptra work?

Sculptra is injected into the skin to diminish facial wrinkles. It contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a collagen stimulator that gradually restores fullness to facial wrinkles and folds, resulting in a softer and more youthful appearance.

How many treatments will I need?

Sculptra typically requires at least three treatments administered a month apart. The number of vials needed varies by individual patient.

When will I see my results?

Noticeable changes from Sculptra are gradual. Most patients do not see immediate changes after treatment. Results become subtle yet noticeable over time, with the reduction of facial wrinkles and folds evident a few weeks after the final treatment. The natural-looking results can last from two to five years.
