Restore facial volume!
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is a bio stimulatory injectable comprised of poly-L-lactic acid that helps to restore facial volume gradually. When injected it stimulates your own skin’s natural ability to produce collagen slowly over time. Over several months, the poly-L-lactic acid is biodegraded and replaced with a meshwork of new collagen. Treatment areas may include, temples, cheeks, nasolabial folds, and jawline. Most initially will require three treatments over a couple of months and then just one treatment annually. Results can last more than two years!
What to Expect with Sculptra
Is it comfortable?
Series of injections should be comfortable and tolerable that gradually help replace lost collagen.
How Many Treatments?
Although the number of treatments and vials will vary between patients typically 2 vials are injected during the first treatment with a follow-up treatment of 1 vial 4-6 weeks later, then only 1 vial annually to help maintain results.
How Long Will It Take?
As noted, this is a gradual improvement. Initially, improvement in volume is apparent, but after a couple of days will return to baseline with results starting to take effect around 6 weeks after injection and gradually continuing to work until optimal results are seen approximately 9 months after injection.

- It is recommended to wait at least two weeks from any illness, vaccination, or dental work.
- If you have a history of cold sores it is important to let your provider be aware before your appointment. In some cases, a preventive medication can be prescribed to prevent a recurrence. *Allow 2 weeks of healing time before any big life event such as weddings, parties, etc.
- It is not recommended to get injected on the same day as any facial procedure such as facials, chemical peels, etc as the areas will need to be washed and prepped for injections.
