What it is

Sculptra is a cosmetic injectable made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible and biodegradable material that has been safely used in clinical applications such as dissolvable sutures and many others. Sculptra works with your body within the deep dermis to stimulate collagen and restore your skin’s inner structure and volume. Collage is an essential protein that decreases with age and gives our skin its structure, support, and elasticity. This collagen stimulator subtly and gradually helps to restore facial volume over time.


How It Works

Collagen is a protein that gives our skin its structure and support. It is responsible for maintaining the skin’s youthful appearance and elasticity. As we age, collagen production naturally slows down, leading to the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging. Sculptra works with your body to revitalize collagen production and restore the skin’s inner structure and volume, essentially reversing the effects of age on your skin. Since Sculptra focuses on natural collagen production, the results are completely natural.

Sculptra is a cosmetic injectable made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) microparticles that are injected into the deep dermis, the layer of skin below the surface. Once injected, the PLLA microparticles are absorbed by the skin and stimulate collagen production. Collagen production results in a natural-looking improvement in skin volume and a more youthful appearance. Over time, your skin will look smoother, tighter, firmer, and more youthful. Sculptra works gradually, and you may need multiple sessions for optimal results.

What To Expect

During the consultation, you will discuss your goals and concerns with your medical provider. The medical provider will evaluate your skin and determine if Sculptra is an appropriate treatment for you. If you decide to move forward with Sculptra, you will be given specific instructions on preparing for the treatment. The Sculptra product is mixed with water and injected into the appropriate dermal plane, where strands of collagen support the skin structure. The treatment takes about 30 minutes to an hour.

After the treatment, the treated areas may look filled in or swollen. This is normal and should resolve within 1-2 days as the product is reabsorbed by the body. As the Sculptra particles start stimulating collagen production, you may see improvements in the treated areas after about 4-6 weeks. The results are cumulative, i.e., they improve with each session. Most patients achieve optimal results after 3 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart. The results last for two years or more.
