How Sculptra® works.
Slow And Steady Strength
As a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, Sculptra® helps restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin to diminish facial wrinkles. Sculptra® works with your body within the deep dermis to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume. As the Sculptra® 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® is made with biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments administered by a trained specialist.
How is Sculptra® administered?
The specialist injects treatment into the appropriate dermal plane where strands of collagen support your skin's structure. Over time, Sculptra® helps the body reproduce lost collagen. The number of injection appointments and the number of injections per appointment vary from person to person, depending on how much collagen has been lost. On average, three injection appointments are needed over a period of a few months.

Which areas does Sculptra® treat?
Sculptra® is used to correct shallow to deep wrinkles and folds on the face. Sculptra® is clinically approved for: deep folds between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds/smile lines), lines framing the mouth (marionette lines), and chin wrinkles.
How many treatments are required?
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 your specialist.
How soon will I see results?
Sculptra® is designed to give you noticeable results that emerge gradually and can last up to two years. 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’ll see subtle, yet noticeable, results in the reduction of facial wrinkles and folds by comparing images before treatment and a couple months following treatment.
