What Is Sculptra?

Beautiful skin takes effort and care. As we age, our collagen production slows down, and skin lacks the fullness and resiliency it once had. Sculptra’s Poly- L-Lactic Acid formulation works with your body to revitalize the collagen production in the face slowed by aging, reinforcing and rebuilding the structural foundation of the skin.

Benefits of Sculptra

Sculptra has many facial rejuvenation benefits, including:

  • Stimulates collagen production
  • Smooths out fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enhances facial volume
  • Improves skin texture and elasticity
  • Is minimally invasive
  • Requires no downtime
  • Is long-lasting

Your Sculptra Treatment

For most patients, Sculptra filler is injected in a series of three treatment sessions that are spaced out over the course of a few months. Each treatment works to restore the supporting collagen in the skin’s tissues and rejuvenate lost volume to reveal beautiful and youthful-looking skin.

Sculptra Results

Sculptra results reveal themselves gradually over time and can last for up to two years. Several weeks following the first treatment, patients typically find fine lines and wrinkles reduced and the skin’s volume enhanced, with the effects being cumulative—each treatment session achieves noticeably firmer, smoother, and younger-looking skin.

FAQs About Sculptra
