Sculptra®️ Aesthetic addresses the underlying causes of facial aging, not just the symptoms. It is a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator that helps restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin to diminish facial wrinkles. Sculptra Aesthetic works by increasing your body’s own collagen production and restores your skin’s inner structure and volume.

Sculptra FAQS

What areas does Sculptra Aesthetic Treat?2021-06-11T13:39:24-05:00

Sculptra Aesthetic is used to correct overall volume loss such as shallow to deep wrinkles and folds on the face. Sculptra can also be used in other areas of the body to restore volume–hands, chest, buttocks, etc.

How many treatments are needed?2021-06-11T13:39:13-05:00

On average, a series of three treatment sessions over the course of a few months may be needed. The number of injections at each session will vary, depending on the degree of correction needed and the treatment plan determined by you and your specialist.

Will I see results immediately?2021-06-11T13:41:53-05:00

Sculptra Aesthetic is designed to give you noticeable results that emerge gradually and can last 2 years or more. Don’t be disappointed if you don’t see immediate results. A few days after treatment, you may look as you did before treatment. This is normal and temporary. The Sculptra Aesthetic delivers its full effects with an average of three treatment sessions over the course of a few months. Because results happen gradually, you’ll see subtle, yet noticeable, results.
