Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Sculptra?


Sculptra is an injectable used to fight wrinkles and sagging skin by stimulating the skin’s collagen production to help restore the cheeky plumpness of healthy skin. It is an alternative anti-aging treatment to injectable dermal fillers, skin creams, fat injections, and implants. Collagen is an important structural protein found in connective tissue. Its function is to keep the skin firm, youthful and smooth. As you age, your body’s collagen production decreases, and you may begin to see wrinkles or sagging. Fat loss beneath the skin also results in drooping skin, hollowed cheeks, indentations, and depressions in the face.


How Does Sculptra Compare To Other Dermal Fillers?


Many dermal fillers work immediately upon injection to replenish lost facial volume. Sculptra, a collagen-stimulating filler, targets visible aging a bit differently. Instead of offering rapid results, it encourages collagen production in your skin to gradually diminish the look of lines and wrinkles.  

The treatment regimen for Sculptra is also unique in the world of dermal fillers. It typically consists of three injections over the course of three or four months. And the results are in a league of their own. Sculptra can improve the appearance of your skin for up to two years!


Is Sculptra Right For Me?


Facial volume loss occurs as you age. It can begin in your 20’s and may become particularly noticeable after the age of 30.

Thankfully, the lost volume can be replenished using injectables. If you are concerned about the signs of aging due to volume loss, you may be a good candidate for Sculptra.


A variety of areas can be treated with Sculptra, including:

  • Deep folds between the nose and mouth, also called nasolabial folds or “smile lines”

  • Lines that form the shape of parentheses around the mouth, also known as “marionette lines”

  • Volume loss in the cheeks, temples, jawline and around the chin

Sculptra is not injected around the lips or eyes, areas for which Restylane or Juvederm are better alternatives. The volume restoration associated with Sculptra restores youthful contours of the face and helps improve sagging skin.

Is Sculptra safe and do the injections hurt?

is composed of poly-L-lactic acid, a molecule that is biodegradable, so it does not harm the body and is easily broken down and absorbed. We use a very effective topical numbing agent to numb the skin prior to the injections. The Sculptra powder is also reconstituted with water and lidocaine, so you will feel more numb as the injections are being done. Most people are surprised at how comfortable the treatments are.


Aftercare And Recovery 


Generally, Sculptra injections will not interfere with your busy schedule or daily routine. They require zero downtime and minimal aftercare to deliver their powerful youth-boosting benefits. 

After getting Sculptra, you will not be able to apply makeup for four hours. Heavy exercise and excessive heat (hot tubs and saunas) should also be avoided for 24 hours. Additionally, you must massage the treated area regularly for five days after receiving your Sculptra injections. We invite you to review the full post-treatment instructions on our website for more details.
