Sculptra


Overview

Sculptra is a FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace collagen in areas of with volume loss for results that last up to two years. Sculptra is unique among the many injectable fillers out in the market because it works with your body to produce natural results by addressing the underlying cause of facial aging. It is very effective when used as a treatment to improve facial volume and treat lipoatrophy, or the loss of fat, in the face.


Good Candidates

  • Hollowness and/or loss of volume due to aging or weight loss

  • Sunken cheeks and temples

  • Chin and jawline

  • Nasolabial folds

  • Wrinkles and folds in chest


What to Expect

Sculptra is made of a biocompatible, biodegradable material called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) that stimulates collagen growth deep in the dermis to help revitalize your skin’s inner structure and volume. As the PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they gradually help to restore the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds over time. Over a period of 4-6 months, the PLLA microparticles will dissipate as your own collagen takes its place and results will last up to 2-3 years. On average, three injection appointments are needed over a period of a few months. The number of injections and treatments vary from person to person, depending on how much facial volume needs to be restored. Sculptra is a great option for patients who are seeking a more youthful appearance without appearing like they’ve had any work done.
