The facial contour is shaped by muscle and tissue, which can change as we age. Sculptra can help you to reverse the signs of aging and enhance your natural features, all without surgical intervention.
Sculptra is injected deep into the skin, where it stimulates collagen production to build up new tissue over time. This creates gradually developed, natural-looking results that last for months.
1. Filling in Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Sculptra offers an alternative to dermal fillers and other wrinkle smoothing treatments because it does more than just reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It helps to stimulate collagen production and provides a natural look for your face that lasts longer than many other fillers.
Its primary ingredient is poly-L-lactic acid, which works to replace lost collagen in your skin. Collagen is a protein that is naturally produced in your body but gradually diminishes as you age, leading to a loss of facial volume and sagging skin. Sculptra’s PLLA is injected underneath your skin to fill in the area and stimulate your own body’s collagen production for long-lasting results.
The treatment is also effective in reducing hollow areas such as sunken cheeks and temples, which can give your face a tired or aged appearance. The result is a more balanced and harmonious facial contour, providing you with a refreshed and youthful look. The results from Sculptra can last for up to two years or more. Follow-up treatments can extend and maintain your results. During the initial consultation, a trained medical professional will review your medical history and assess your facial anatomy to determine the number of vials and treatment sessions needed to achieve the desired results.
2. Increasing Your Facial Volume
Franca, a 41-year-old model, is just one of many people who have used Sculptra to enhance their facial volume and rejuvenate their appearance. She was concerned about losing modeling opportunities due to prominent smile lines and was impressed with how quickly Sculptra transformed her appearance.
Unlike dermal fillers that use hyaluronic acid to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, Sculptra uses poly-L-lactic acid to stimulate collagen growth within your skin. This long-lasting facial injectable helps restore lost collagen and elastin that is caused by natural aging, weight fluctuations, and other factors.
Once injected, Sculptra immediately creates volumizing improvements in your facial contour and creases. Over time, this product produces results that last up to two years.
To prepare for your Sculptra treatment, you should avoid drinking alcohol and taking anti-inflammatory medications for 24 hours prior to your appointment. A trained specialist will map out injections spots, clean the area, and begin the procedure. The injections are administered using a very fine needle, which minimizes discomfort. Several sessions may be required for optimal results, and the number of vials will vary based on your individual needs and desired aesthetic.
3. Smoothing Your Skin’s Texture
Sculptra doesn’t just reduce wrinkles; it can also improve the appearance of rough or uneven skin texture. This is because it thickens the deeper layers of your skin, creating a plumper and healthier look. Unlike laser treatments and other skin care products, which only work on the surface of your skin, Sculptra penetrates deep into your facial tissue.
The primary active ingredient in Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid, which stimulates the production of collagen in your body. This results in a smoother, more even complexion, as well as a reduction of the nasolabial folds that can occur due to aging.
Sculptra can also be combined with other cosmetic procedures to create a comprehensive face rejuvenation treatment. This can include chemical peels, which remove dead skin cells to reveal a fresher and more youthful appearance. We can help you find the right treatment combination that best suits your needs and cosmetic goals.
4. Enhancing Your Cheeks and Lips
Sculptra differs from other dermal fillers in that it is a biocompatible substance that stimulates your body’s natural collagen production to reduce wrinkles, lines and hollow areas. Unlike many other injectable treatments, Sculptra does not contain any animal products and requires no allergy testing prior to treatment.
During the treatment, we use a fine needle to carefully inject Sculptra into the targeted area. The injection site will be swollen for a few days afterward, but this is temporary.
In order to get the best results, most patients require a series of Sculptra treatments spaced about a month apart. These treatments will gradually stimulate your body’s natural collagen production, resulting in fuller facial contours and reduced wrinkles and lines.

5. Restoring a More Natural Appearance
When Sculptra is injected beneath your skin, the poly-L-lactic acid microparticles stimulate your body’s natural collagen production. This helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles while restoring volume and fat to the face to enhance your facial contour. This non-invasive cosmetic treatment can help you look younger and refreshed without looking “done” or obvious.
Over time, our facial skin loses its supportive scaffolding as the fat pads in our cheeks and chin shrink. This can result in a gaunt appearance, especially around the temples, chin, and jawline. Sculptra can restore the facial contour, smooth out wrinkles, and lift sagging skin.
Unlike implants, which require an invasive surgical procedure, and fat transfer, which is unpredictable and may shift over time, Sculptra adds volume naturally by allowing your own collagen to slowly replace lost facial tissue. As a result, the results from Sculptra will improve over weeks and months to appear completely natural. Optimal Sculptra treatment requires three sessions spaced over four months for the best results. Our experienced team will work with you to achieve your desired look.
