Sculptra is an injectable dermal filler biostimulant used to treat fine lines and wrinkles and to stimulate collagen production. Sculptra activates your skin’s natural power to revitalize collagen production for a more youthful appearance, adding fullness to the face, temples and jawline.

Sculptra works with your body to stimulate collagen production lost to aging, rebuilding and reinforcing your skin’s structural foundation. Through a series of treatments, typically about three sessions over a few months, it restores the support and volume of youthful-looking skin, providing results that can last up to two years.

Sculptra consists of Poly- L-Lactic Acid, which is a synthetic polymer that has been used in the human body since 1960 and as medical suture material since 1970.

Note: A consultation is required prior to your first Sculptra treatment.

  • Massage the treated area for 5 minutes 5 times per day for 5 days after your treatment.
