See results that last two years or more with Sculptra®, the dermal filler that uses your body’s own collagen to build firmer skin.
What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is a dermal filler that is used to restore lost volume and smooth lines and wrinkles. This innovative filler uses poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a synthetic material with a well-established safety profile. It has been in use since 1970 in products such as surgical sutures. Sculptra® works especially well for lines, wrinkles, and folds on the lower part of the face, although it can be used in many other applications, even on the body.
How Does Sculptra® Work?
Sculptra® is a dermal filler used to improve the appearance of wrinkles and folds in the skin. The active ingredient in Sculptra®, poly-L-lactic acid, helps stimulate collagen production in the skin. Collagen is a vital protein that helps to keep the skin looking young and healthy. When injected into the skin, Sculptra® provides lift and support, filling in wrinkles and folds. Sculptra® is often used to improve smile lines, marionette lines, and other wrinkles and folds. It can also be used to improve the appearance of acne scars. It has off-label uses in other parts of the body, including the buttocks, due to its durability and collagen-enhancing power.
Am I a Good Candidate for Sculptra®?
If you have facial lines, folds, and wrinkles, especially around the lower face, you might be a good candidate for Sculptra®. You may also be a candidate if you are looking to enhance areas of your body, including the buttocks. Ideal candidates have no infection or skin irritation in the treatment area and have reasonable expectations about their results. If you have had a bad reaction to the ingredients in Sculptra® or have a tendency to form abnormal scars, you may not make a good candidate.

What Results Will I See With Sculptra®?
Maximum collagen production usually requires several treatment sessions. Most people will have three sessions spaced three to four months apart. This provides the most significant amount of collagen stimulation for long-lasting results. You will start to see results appear after a few weeks as your skin develops new collagen. Your results will continue to develop for several months, and you can expect them to last two years or more.
Is There Any Downtime With Sculptra®?
You may experience some minor swelling and bruise at the site of the injections. This resolves within a few days. You can return to your daily routine after getting Sculptra®, which takes less than 30 minutes. Some people may notice some hard areas under the skin that will usually resolve without treatment. Since UV light damages collagen, avoid sun exposure to protect your skin while your new collagen develops.
