What is Sculptra?

Sculptra® is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen — an underlying cause of facial aging — for results that can last more than two years. Sculptra® is made with biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body. Sculptra® is used to add volume to areas of the face to create a soft, natural, more youthful recontouring of the face. It builds your own collagen while it gradually disappears.

When done well, it doesn’t have that “over stuffed” look. It is best for adding volume to:

  • hollow cheeks
  • softening bony cheekbones
  • nasolabial and melolabial folds (nose to mouth/mouth to chin)
  • hollow chin area
  • defining the jawline
  • hollow temples
  • some body sites

Product Highlights

It’s used to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds. 80% of Sculptra Aesthetic patients still rated their results as “good” or “excellent” 25 months after treatment. There is little discomfort with the injections because Sculptra is mixed with lidocaine, which is a local anesthetic.
