Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen — the most common protein in the body that is used to form a framework to support cells and tissue. It’s a unique treatment that works subtly and gradually over time for a more youthful-looking appearance. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, which often give immediate results, Sculptra stimulates your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost due to aging.

Sculptra is made from a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is biocompatible and biodegradable, meaning it is well tolerated by the body and gradually and naturally absorbed by the body as it works to produce collagen. Poly-L-lactic acid has been used in medical products for decades, including dissolvable stitches.

The treatment involves injections into the deep dermis, where it helps stimulate collagen production. Over time, usually after a series of treatments that are spread several weeks apart, Sculptra helps the skin to regain lost volume, resulting in a smoother, fuller appearance. This gradual process ensures the changes look natural and can last more than two years for many patients, making it a long-lasting solution for age-related volume loss.

Sculptra is primarily used to treat shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds, and it’s particularly effective for correcting smile lines, marionette lines (lines from the corners of the mouth down to the chin), and chin wrinkles. Additionally, because of its collagen-stimulating properties, it can be used to enhance and define other facial features that have lost volume over time, such as the cheeks and temples.

It’s important to have Sculptra injections performed by a qualified and experienced medical professional who can accurately assess your needs and customize the treatment for the best possible outcomes. The number of injections and the total number of sessions may vary based on individual goals and the degree of correction desired.
