Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen-the most common protein in the body that is used to form a framework to support cells and tissue-for results that can last up to two years.

How does Sculptra work? – Sculptra® is a type of dermal filler, which is a cosmetic procedure to smooth fine lines and deep wrinkles.

Sculptra is a gel-like substance made of poly-L-lactic acid. A healthcare provider will inject this filler underneath your skin where you want a fuller or smoother appearance. Poly-L-lactic acid is a collagen stimulator that absorbs into your body a few days after treatment to encourage your cells to produce more collagen. Collagen is a protein in your skin — as well as in your connective tissues, bones and cartilage — that provides structure, support and strength.

The first and original PLLA collagen stimulator that, when injected in the cheek area, has been clinically shown to reduce cheek wrinkles, firm the skin and improve skin quality.1-4

What parts of the body does Sculptra treat? – Sculptra can be injected into areas of your body where you have lines and wrinkles that you want smoothed out.

# of treatments? – 3 treatments, 3 – 6 weeks apart, and then maitenance is recommended once per year.

What is the down time? – No downtime
