Sculptra addresses underlying facial aging, not just the symptoms. Sculptra is commonly used between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds), commonly call “smile lines” or “laugh lines” as well as the chin. Sculptra is used to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds.
CULPTRA AESTHETIC MAY STIMULATE COLLAGEN GROWTH WHICH HELPS TO RESTORE FACIAL VOLUME AND THE LOOK OF FULLNESS TO WRINKLES AND FOLDS OVER TIME.
Youthful skin starts within
Sculptra® Aesthetic works subtly and gradually over time for a more youthful-looking appearance. Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Sculptra Aesthetic helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost to aging. Sculptra® Aesthetic is intended for use in people with healthy immune systems. The entire treatment is divided up into individualized sessions … each treatment builds collagen, so the number of treatments varies, depending on your overall anti-aging needs.
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.
80% of users were still satisfied with their treatment results 25 months after their last injection.*+

"Sculptra® is more of a long-term investment than the “quicker fix” of the other fillers. Their (fillers) results take 2 weeks and Sculptra® takes months, but the results are permanent and look more natural. I like to make sure patients get realistic expectations through consultation. – Dr Linda Myers"
YOU LOSE ABOUT 1% OF COLLAGEN PER YEAR AFTER THE AGE OF 18.
Collagen by the numbers
Collagen is a key structural component of smooth, healthy-looking skin. As you age, your body’s collagen production decreases. In fact, you lose about 1% of collagen per year after the age of 18. This is when you may start to notice the formation of wrinkles. Luckily, Sculptra® Aesthetic can help, even if decades of collagen loss have already occurred.
Traditional collagen creams purport to deliver collagen that is absorbed by the skin. However, collagen molecules are too large to penetrate the dermis. So, in actuality, most of these treatments include vitamins and hold moisture, making them suitable moisturizers that can briefly improve skin’s appearance.
Common Side Effects
The most common side effects after initial treatment include injection site swelling, tenderness, redness, pain, bruising, bleeding, itching and lumps. Other side effects may include small lumps under the skin that are sometimes noticeable when pressing on the treated area. Larger lumps, some with delayed onset with or without inflammation or skin discoloration, have also been reported.
