If you want to “look natural but refreshed” or “look good but not overdone” then Sculptra may be a great treatment option for you. What is Sculptra? Sculptra gradually replaces lost collagen, which is an underlying cause of facial aging, providing natural, youthful-looking results

Many confuse it for a filler. The truth is Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) and is an FDA-approved injectable that stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen over time. Sculptra is commonly used to address the underlying cause of aging and correct mild to severe facial wrinkles. It is a beautiful and effective way to stimulate collagen production globally to the face whereas fillers traditionally treat localized areas.

Unlike traditional collagen stimulators that are used topically and are too large to penetrate the dermis, Sculptra works within the deep dermis to revitalize collagen production. As the PLLA microparticles are absorbed, collagen strands are gradually rebuilt restoring facial volume and softening existing folds and wrinkles.



We didn’t age overnight so why expect to anti-age overnight?

Most patients need multiple session to get the desired fullness. After the series of treatments you will see results in the coming weeks and results  last up to two years!


Over all Sculptra is safe. You may experience redness and little discomfort at the injections site. On and scale of 1 to 10, most patients rate it about a 3, stating some tolerable pressure throughout the injection. Both lidocaine and/or   topical numbing cream are available prior to injection to add to your comfort.



The price of Sculptra is $695 per vial, which is comparable to the cost of most other dermal fillers. Patients may need multiple sessions to achieve their goals.



Sculptra might be appropriate for you if you’re experiencing any of these concerns:

  • Smile or marionette folds or lines
  • Volume loss associated with aging
  • Temples that are starting to hollow out
  • Development of jowls
