Sculptra works subtly and gradually over time by stimulating your own collagen production and helps to restore loss of facial volume due to aging.

A collagen stimulator, made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), Sculptra® is different from dermal fillers because of its ability to gradually diminish the facial wrinkles and restore the deep, underlying structures of the skin. As the microparticles of Sculptra® are absorbed into the tissue, they help stimulate collagen production for a long-lasting youthful-looking appearance.

How is It Performed?

Sculptra® injection is a simple and safe procedure that doesn’t last more than 15 minutes. Prior to the procedure, the doctor applies a topical numbing cream and then injects a numbing agent to provide maximal comfort and minimize bruising. Using a fine needle, Sculptra® is injected into the desired areas of the face. The results are not immediate, and they appear gradually over the treatment regime, and can last up to two years.

A series of two or three treatment sessions over the course of a few months may be needed, until the results are satisfying. The number of injections at each session will vary, depending on the desired effects and the degree of correction needed.
