What Is Sculptra?

Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable treatment used to create smoother, more youthful-looking facial skin, restore lost facial volume, and stimulate collagen production.

How Does Sculptra Work?

Sculptra is a biostimulatory filler made with poly-L-lactic acid. When Sculptra is injected into the facial skin, it adds natural-looking volume to the area, and the poly-L-lactic acid is gradually absorbed into the body. Over time, the poly-L-lactic acid encourages the body’s cells to produce more collagen, which gradually improves the health and complexion of the skin.

What Should I Expect During the Procedure?

Your Sculptra treatment will be administered as an outpatient procedure right at our clinic. To begin, your skin will be cleansed in the treatment area, and a topical anesthetic will be applied to prevent any pain during the procedure. Then, using a very fine needle or cannula, your injector professional will inject Sculptra into your facial skin. In total, the treatment should only take around 20 to 30 minutes, and you’ll be able to return home as soon as it’s finished.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?

After your Sculptra treatment, you’ll want to avoid strenuous physical activity for 24 hours, but you should be able to resume your normal routine right away.
