Sculptra is an injectable medication that causes your body to stimulate the production of
muscle, collagen, and bone. It is the only FDA approved collagen biostimulator that works deep in
the skin to build volume and improve your skin's inner structure to smooth wrinkles, improve crepey
skin, and provide lift. We love to think of Sculptra as fertilizer for your face! Used by itself or along
with lasers and other injectables, i.e. neurotoxins and fillers, Sculptra offers long-lasting, natural
Sculptra works gradually over time. We recommend a series of 2-3 treatments over the first
year and then one treatment yearly after that. Unlike filler that shows an immediate effect that fades
over time, improvements with Sculptra are getting even better over a period of 1-2 years. In many
ways, Sculptra and fillers work in opposite manners and often complement each other.
Sculptra is used in all areas of the face. It causes the natural production of collagen to fill out
hollow temples and lower cheeks as well as to enhance cheekbones and jawlines. Sculptra is one of
our best tools to prevent and treat vertical lip lines caused by volume loss.
Sculptra is used on the body also! It helps to improve crepey, loose skin on necks, above
knees, inner thighs, upper arms, anywhere improvement is desired. It is a very versatile tool in our
anti-aging toolbox!
An appointment for Sculptra takes about an hour. All areas to be injected will be thoroughly
cleansed and numbed. After the injections you should feel little to no discomfort. Because Sculptra is
mixed using sterile water, your face will look and feel full immediately after the procedure. The water
is absorbed over the next two days. Your provider will review all post treatment cares and
expectations with you prior to your procedure.
We love Sculptra because it provides a safe, long-lasting natural result. It is used to slow
aging related changes and improve those changes we would like to see less of!
