Sculptra often falls into the category of dermal fillers; however, unlike dermal fillers, Sculptra is a collagen stimulator used to restore facial volume loss due to aging or illness. Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible synthetic substance designed to stimulate collagen production. Sculptra can be used to restore areas of moderate to severe volume loss, deep lines, creases, and folds, giving you a more youthful appearance.

The Sculptra process takes several weeks, so the results are gradual. Patients often need 2-3 sessions spaced 6-8 weeks apart, depending on the extent of volume loss. Once adequate volume is achieved, we recommend a maintenance treatment every 1-2 years thereafter to sustain ongoing collagen production.

Know More

Sculptra can be used as the "foundational filler," as it creates natural results and decreases the amount of dermal fillers needed in the future. We like to think of Sculptra as your 401K, as it offers more regenerative and restorative therapy with longer-lasting benefits. In contrast, dermal fillers are more like a checking account, where results are immediate but don't necessarily have the long-lasting benefits of collagen stimulators.

Sculptra is made of a biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually absorbed by the body. It rebuilds lost collagen through a series of treatments.
On average, 2-3 treatment appointments are scheduled over a period of a few months. The number of Sculptra appointments and the number of injections per appointment will vary from person to person, depending on how much collagen has been lost.
Results are usually visible in 3-4 months.
Results can last up to 2-3 years.
Dermal fillers are gel substances made of hyaluronic acid that diminish lines by filling in the tissue layers beneath wrinkles and creases. Results appear immediately and may last several months. Collagen stimulators like Sculptra are used to diminish facial wrinkles by helping restore the skin’s deep, underlying structure. Results appear gradually over the treatment regimen (generally two to three injections over the course of three to four months) and can last up to two years.
Bruising is possible with all injections, so please plan two weeks ahead of any events or vacations.
