Sculptra Q & A
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is a cosmetic treatment that works with your own skins natural collagen production to increase overall facial volume.
Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Sculptra Aesthetic is a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA)-based treatment. Once injected, it begins working deep within the skin to stimulate collagen production, reinforcing the skin’s inner structure and restoring its volume.
What benefits can I expect?
Sculptra Aesthetic treats more than just wrinkles, lines, and folds. You will see subtle results that emerge gradually over time. Sculptra addresses the underlying cause of facial aging and allows you to achieve full face rejuvenation.
How is Sculptra administered?
A trained physician administers Sculptra Aesthetic in a series of injection sessions. On average, three treatment sessions are needed over a few months, but your doctor will tailor the sessions to suit your desired outcome. As with any injection, some pain is possible, but your physician may use a topical anesthetic to ease any discomfort.
The specialist injects a treatment within the deep dermis, where strands of collagen support your skin’s structure. Over time, Sculptra Aesthetic helps the body reproduce lost collagen. On average, three injection appointments are needed over a period of a few months. The number of injection appointments and the number of injections per appointment vary from person to person, depending on how much collagen has been lost.
How long do results last?
Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen — an underlying cause of facial aging — for results that can last more than two years.*
It’s used to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds.*Individual results may vary.
