Sculptra Aesthetic is used to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds which are treated with the appropriate injection technique.

Sculptra is an FDA approved proprietary poly lactic acid formula that is utilized as a dermal filler, which includes a minute amount of lidocaine (anesthetic). It is primarily used as a facial volumizer that aims to restore volume to the aged face.


What is Sculptra used for?

Sculptra is dermal filler used by cosmetic medical professionals to rejuvenate the appearance of the face by stimulating the body’s natural collagen synthesis in order to replace what has been lost by aging, acne scarring, severe weight loss or illness. Sculptra is an injectable volumizer, a gel-like filler to used to enhance and volumize aging face, cheeks, chin or deep creases, furrows, depressions of acne scars.

What are the key benefits of a Sculptra treatment?

Sculptra is a safe procedure that enhances and lifts the cheeks where the initial aging signs are visible. The goal is to beautify, augment, enhance definition, shape, volume and size of the cheeks or chin.

Where can it be placed on the face?

Sculptra is injected painlessly with a very tiny needle into:

  • Cheeks
  • Chin
  • Deep smile lines
  • Marionette lines and sagging corners of the lips
  • Facial depressions
  • Temporal hollow (sides of the head) depressions
  • Angle of the jaw definition enhancement
  • Hand depressions

Frequently Asked Questions


None, since this is a simple injection with a tiny needle.

At minimum, three sessions are necessary for a visible and rewarding transformation. Each session should be spaced about four weeks apart.

Normally around 15 to 20 minutes.

Immediately. Sculptra is made out of two components: 1) a gel that will subside in few days and 2) the polylactic particles that will stimulate your own natural collagen remodeling and synthesis. This process will take a few weeks to reveal itself, but the treatment must be repeated every month for a total of three or four sessions.

Most of our Sculptra patients receive Botox injections in conjunction with their treatment. Botox is the perfect complimentary treatment. When used together they provide that “liquid face lift” result that so many patients are after. Chemical peels can also be done in an effort to enhance the volumizing that the Sculptra created

How long the results last of course is not only individually variable but is also technique and volume dependant. Our skilled injection staff have seen results lasting in excess of two years.

No, since it contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic, however a slight stinging sensation may be felt at the site of the injection. There is usually no pain afterwards.

We usually recommend two of our medical grade skin care products 4Max and C-Bright, since the daily application of polypeptides and ascorbic acid have been shown to improve skin quality and texture.

All patients are asked to massage the injected area with Aquaboost™ (a skin care supplement we offer that keeps the skin hydrated and smooth) multiple times for the first 48 hours.
