“Discover Anti-age for the Modern Age”
Are you looking for the ultimate in dermal fillers? Look no further than FDA-approved Sculptra®. Besides its renowned excellence for sculpting facial features and adding fullness, Sculptra is extremely long lasting. In fact, results from Sculptra last two-three years, compared to most other anti-aging fillers that typically last six to 12 months
Sculptra is a great treatment choice for patients who have lost facial volume due to the aging process. Natural collagen is what gives skin a smooth, supple and youthful appearance. Yet as you age, natural collagen breaks down, resulting in wrinkles and loss of facial volume. The best way to refresh your appearance is by replenishing volume that is lost. Sculptra works by actually rebuilding collagen beneath the skin.
Unlike hyaluronic acid-type dermal fillers that are sometimes referred to as “lunchtime treatments,” Sculptra’s results are not as immediate. That’s because actual renewal of collagen takes place gradually. Sculptra results are usually apparent after six weeks of treatment and continue to improve over six months. This slower, more natural progression allows the patience to look better over time, without looking as if something has been “done.”

What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is an injectable compound that contains poly-L-lactic acid, a completely safe biocompatible, biodegradable, polymer from the alpha-hydroxy-acid family. Poly-L-lactic acid has been used for decades in the medical community. In 2009, the United States Food and Drug Administration approved Sculptra for cosmetic use, or, the restoration and/or correction of the signs of facial fat loss.
The amazing benefit of this product is that it is the only fully biodegradable filler with this type of effective duration. In most cases, Sculptra last between two-three years. It works to stimulate the deep layers of the skin to produce more collagen. This is a very effective treatment for restoring volume loss in the face.
Where does Sculptra work the best?
Sculptra will help correct volume loss in the following areas:
- Under eye area
- Nasolabial folds (laugh lines, smile lines)
- Melomental folds (Marionette lines)
- Perioral wrinkles (vertical lines around the mouth)
How many treatments will I need?
Depending on each individual case, patients need 1 -3 treatments. Multiple treatments are spaced about 6-8 weeks apart to achieve the best results.
When will I see results?
The beginning results often occur within 6 weeks of your first treatment and by six months you will have achieved between 70-90% of the final result. You will continue to see about 10% additional improvement through the first year!
