As we age, our collagen decreases and weakens our skin’s inner structure, reducing its ability to maintain elasticity and moisture. This weakened inner structure can lead to lines, wrinkles and folds, as well as a loss of skin volume and support.
What is Sculptra?
Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid based treatment. Once injected, it begins working deep within the skin to help stimulate collagen production, reinforcing the skin’s inner structure and restoring its volume. Dermal fillers address only lines, wrinkles and folds, not collagen loss.
What is Sculptra used for?
Sculptra is used to correct shallow to deep nasolabial fold contour deficiencies such as hollow cheeks and other deeper facial wrinkles. Sculptra is not used for the lips.
How often do I need injections?
A complete Sculptra treatment is comprised of 4 injection sessions about 3 to 4 weeks apart.
How long does Sculptra last?
Sculptra works subtly and gradually over time for results that may last up to two years.
What are common side effects of Sculptra?
The most common side effects after initial treatment include injection site swelling, tenderness, redness, site pain, bruising, bleeding, itching and lumps.
