What It Is
Sculptra is made of very small particles of a synthetic polymer named “poly-L-lactic acid” (PLLA). Sculptra is a powerful therapy that stimulates your own body’s collagen production.
How It Works
Sculptra is injected into the deep layer of the skin where collagen naturally exists and is made. Sculptra works by initially filling a wrinkle with small PLLA beads. As the beads biodegrade the body may produce new collagen where Sculptra is injected.
What To Expect
Sculptra treatment takes approximately 45 minutes. Sculptra will be injected in multiple small amounts into or under the skin using a fine needle. After injection, the treated area should be massaged to distribute the product evenly.

Sculptra is intended for use in people with healthy immune systems. Sculptra is injected in or under the facial skin through a small needle for collagen stimulation. A treatment regimen of Sculptra consists of up to 4 injection sessions scheduled 3-4 weeks apart.

Unlike dermal fillers, Sculptra provides a gradual improvement of the depressed area over several weeks as the treatment effects occur. 

Results may last up to 25 months. 

As with any injectable procedures, you can expect injection-related side effects, such as bleeding, tenderness or pain/discomfort, redness, bruising, or swelling. These side effects generally resolve within a few hours to a few days but could last for 14 days or longer. You will be advised to massage the treated area for 5 minutes 5 times per day for 5 days after your treatment.

Most patients are able to get back to their activities immediately following treatment.
