Sculptra® Aesthetic FAQ’s


What is Sculptra® Aesthetic?

Sculptra® Aesthetic is a collagen stimulator used to diminish overall facial wrinkles by helping to restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin. This FDA-approved product works by using injectable poly-L-lactic acid to help gradually replace lost collagen – an underlying cause of facial aging.

This unique treatment works with your body to help revitalize the production of collagen, the natural substance that gives your skin resiliency, elasticity and shape.


Why would I like Sculptra® Aesthetic?

Sculptra® Aesthetic is perfect for people who have more all-over facial volume loss; those of us that have more than a few lines and folds on the face. A physically active and fit lifestyle can lead to less volume in the face, which adds to a gaunt, deflated facial appearance. A series of Sculptra® Aesthetic treatments will subtly replace lost facial volume in just the right places. Best yet, you can stay fit and active!

One patient, who received several vials of Sculptra® Aesthetic over the course of two months commented, “Wow, there is a real difference.” And this statement was made three months after the initial treatment!


How does Sculptra® Aesthetic work?

Sculptra® Aesthetic stimulates collagen growth over time, which helps to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds. Slow and steady strength, it’s just that simple.

The number of appointments and the total number of vials needed vary from person to person depending on how much collagen has been lost. A complimentary cosmetic consultation is provided for all new clients so that we can learn your aesthetic goals, provide more information about this advanced treatment, and discuss whether it can help to achieve the flattering, refreshed results you want.


What to expect with your Sculptra® Aesthetic treatment?

A full Scultpra Aesthetic treatment takes, on average, two to three sessions over the course of several months. Each treatment session takes no more than an hour. Before each session, topical anesthetic cream is applied to reduce discomfort, followed by a series of delicate injections. After the treatment period is complete, the results can last for 2 years or longer.

We have nine years experience and extensive training in the treatment of Sculptra® Aesthetic. The most common side effects after each treatment include injection site swelling, tenderness, redness, pain, bruising, bleeding, itching, and lumps. These side effects will resolve within two weeks. Larger lumps, some with delayed onset (with or without inflammation or skin discoloration), have also been reported. A full and complete discussion about the treatment, results, and possible side effects are addressed in the initial consultation.
