What Is Sculptra Aesthetic?
Address the primary underlying cause of facial aging, not just the symptoms.
Sculptra Aesthetic 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 AESTHETIC stimulates collagen production to help restore and maintain facial volume and fullness to keep wrinkles and deep folds at bay for up to two years!
Results appear gradually over the treatment regime (typically three injections over the course of three to four months) and can last up to two years.*
Not all treatments or injectables are created the same.
Some target different areas of the face, and, more importantly, produce different effects.
As a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, Sculptra Aesthetic is different. It works with your body within the deep dermis, rather than topically, to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume and dramatically improves:
- Marrionette Lines – moderate to severe
- Smile Lines
- Smokers Lines
- Chin Folds and Wrinkles

What are Sculptra side effects?
Because Sculptra is biocompatible and derived from lactic acid, a natural body bi-product, it almost never creates a reaction when placed into the skin. Initially, because a lot of fluid is injected with the product, you may feel “puffy,” but this resolves over 1-2 days. As with any injectable, there is a possibility of bruising after treatments, but bruises typically resolve over a few days.
Do the injections hurt?
Because a small amount of anesthetic is placed before injections and because Sculptra is mixed with anesthetic itself, injections are usually well tolerated. Ice packs are also used during treatments to maximize comfort.
I heard that massage is a key part of the Sculptra procedure.<br /> Can you explain why this is important?
Yes! We encourage patients to massage treated areas for 5 minutes, 5 times per day for 5 days. This is important to help prevent product from accumulating and creating bumps or lumps under the skin.
Why can’t I see results immediately? When will I see results?
Because Sculptra stimulates your own body to produce collagen, this process takes time, typically around 6 weeks. After Sculptra is injected, water mixed with the product absorbs over 1-2 days, and it appears that “nothing” was done. Then, as the Sculptra particles start stimulating collagen synthesis, my patients begin to see mild improvement after about 6 weeks. At this time we often proceed with another injection session to build on initial improvement. Most of my patients see full results after 2-3 treatments.
Will I need more than one treatment to see improvement?
Yes, to achieve maximized rejuvenation, we typically recommend at least 2-3 sessions, spaced about 6 weeks apart.
What areas of my face will benefit from Sculptra?
Scultra is perfect for lifting cheeks, defining the jaw and volumizing hollows like the temples. I also like using it in dilute concentrations on the chest for smoothing wrinkles and on the backs of the hands to smooth contour and better hide bones, tendons, and large veins.
