Sculptra is an advanced, FDA-approved, injectable filler designed to stimulate natural skin regeneration. Sculptra is a unique dermal filler, formulated with poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible substance that triggers natural collagen production. Through increasing natural collagen production, Sculptra smooths away facial wrinkles and folds, creating an elegant, very natural outcome. Results with Sculptra can last up to two years.



You may be a good candidate for Sculptra if you would like to restore lost volume to your face slowly and discreetly. This treatment may be the perfect filler if you desire subtle, natural-looking enhancements for any of the following:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Diminished cheek volume

What is a Sculptra treatment like?

For optimal results, you will need a series of Sculptra treatment sessions and may require several sessions over three to four months. This can vary from person to person, depending on the degree of collagen loss. In each treatment session, the doctor will inject Sculptra deep within the dermis—the deeper layer of skin, where the collagen is. Over time, the poly-L-lactic acid in Sculptra is absorbed, causing your skin to regenerate higher quantities of natural collagen.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there any downtime after Sculptra?

There is no downtime with Sculptra treatments. You may return to work or resume your normal activities immediately after your injections. As with any injectable treatment, you may experience minor redness, tenderness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites. These symptoms should resolve on their own within a few days.

What exactly is poly-L-lactic acid?

Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material absorbed naturally by the body. It is a collagen stimulator that works deep within the dermis to stimulate higher levels of collagen production and restore the skin’s structure to create an exceptionally natural smoothing effect.
