Sculptra Aesthetic is made from poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator. It works with your body within the deep dermis, rather than topically, to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume. As the Sculptra Aesthetic PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production. Rebuilt collagen strands begin gradually helping to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds
Sculptra lasts up to two years but most clients choose to maintain their results with a single vial treatment once per year.
Sculptra is priced per vial and runs about $800 each. Most clients new to Sculptra will require four vials performed over a series of three facial injection treatments.
Sculptra is commonly injected in the lower face, temples, cheeks, chest, and buttocks.

After having filler, you should avoid having a facial, massage or laser procedure for 2 weeks. You may apply your normal skincare and make-up.

Side effects from any filler injection can include redness, swelling, bruising, bumps under the skin, asymmetry, triggering a cold sore outbreak and possible skin infection. Other side effects that are less common include vascular occlusion and skin necrosis. These side effects can be minimized with injector technique and strict adherence to pre and post-care instructions.
Injections to the mid and lower face may be slightly uncomfortable. It may feel like a bee sting with a slight burning sensation. A topical anesthetic is applied prior to injection to reduce pain. We also mix lidocaine into the Sculptra to reduce pain during and after the treatment.
