After age 20, you lose about 1% of collagen per year. Sculptra is the first and original approved poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA-SCA) facial injectable that targets fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, and other signs of aging due to collagen loss, gradually helping restore skin structure and volume. Not just another filler, Sculptra is a biostimulatory aesthetic injectable that helps stimulate your own natural collagen production to smooth facial wrinkles and improve skin tightness, revealing a refreshed-looking you.

By far, Sculptra is the longest-lasting anti-aging injectable on the market. Individual results vary, but you can expect your ideal results to last between two and five years. The better care you take of your skin, the longer you will enjoy a healthy, youthful visage.

Sculptra® activates the skin’s ability to produce collagen, restoring the skin’s structure and renewing its natural firmness. Collagen is a fibrous protein in the deeper layers of your skin and is key in making your skin look young and healthy. As you age, your body’s collagen production decreases. The loss of collagen will in time lead to loose and saggy skin and the formation of facial wrinkles and folds.

Sculptra® is the original collagen stimulator that will renew your skin in a gradual and long-lasting way by stimulating collagen production. Sculptra® gives you control of your skin and the power to look as great as you feel.

On average, a series of three treatment sessions over the course of a few months may be needed. The number of injections at each session will vary, depending on the degree of correction needed and the treatment plan determined by you and our healthcare practitioner, Dr. Zeid Mohamedali. 

Sculptra is designed to give you noticeable results that emerge gradually with increased collagen production. Don’t be disappointed if you don’t see immediate results. A few days after treatment, you may look as you did before treatment. This is normal and temporary. The Sculptra regimen delivers its full effects with an average of three treatment sessions over the course of a few months. Because results happen gradually, you will see subtle, yet noticeable, results in the reduction of facial wrinkles and folds by comparing images before treatment and a couple months following treatment.

In the days following your treatment, keep a few things in mind for swift healing and optimum results:

Cold pack: A cold pack or ice pack will help reduce any common swelling. Within the first 24 hours of treatment, apply a cloth-wrapped cold pack to the treated area for a few minutes at a time. Never apply ice directly to the skin.

Facial massage: Massage the treated area for five minutes five times a day for five days after treatment, as recommended by your healthcare practitioner.

NOTE: There are areas that can benefit from Sculptra that are considered "off label" such as hip dip corrections and buttocks augmentation. These areas can be discussed in your pre treatment consultation with Dr. Mohamedali.
