Sculptra is a cosmetic filler that is injectable. It is used to restore facial volume lost due to illness or aging. Sculptra is a collagen booster, not a facial filler, but it is FDA approved to restore lost volume. It contains poly-L-lactic acid or PLLA that is a biocompatible, synthetic product designed to stimulate collagen production. Sculptra treats deep lines, creases, and folds and gives you a more youthful appearance. We inject Sculptra deep into the dermis and it gradually improves the treated area.

What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is an FDA-approved injectable gradually replacing lost collagen. It restores tightens, thickens the skin, and restores volume.
Sculptra® is not a hyaluronic acid filler that immediately volumizes and gives you immediate visible results. Sculptra® provides a natural filling effect within the first few days, followed by a decrease in volume. At this point, the body gradually starts to produce its own collagen, and re-establishes volume lost over time.
How does Sculptra® work?
“Sculptra Aesthetic is made with a biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments administered by a trained specialist.” (Taken from Sculptra website). The product is injected deep within the dermis, where collagen supports your skin’s structure. Sculptra Aesthetic will help the body reproduce lost collagen. Usually, three injection appointments are needed over a few months’ time. The number of appointments and the number of injections vary from person to person. It all depends on how much collagen you have lost.

What is the difference between filler and Sculptra?
Fillers are made with hyaluronic acid and are gel substances. They diminish wrinkles and fine lines by filling the dermis space where there are wrinkles and creases. Results appear almost immediately and can last up to several months.
Collagen stimulators, like Sculptra, are used to diminish facial wrinkles by restoring the deep, underlying structure of the skin. Results are gradual over the treatment time (typically three injections over the course of three to four months) and can last up to two years. *
