Why rent your fillers when you can own your look? Sculptra is collagen stimulation for age prevention.
Sculptra works subtly and gradually over time for a more youthful-looking appearance. Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Sculptra helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost to aging.
* Individual Results and Patient Experience May Vary
Sculptra stimulates collagen growth which helps to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds over time.

Why Choose Sculptra?
Like most women (and many men) that have celebrated their 40th, you’re likely feeling a little discouraged with the way gravity has taken a toll on your once plump, tight, and wrinkle-free face. And for most of us, it doesn’t end there.
We know that Botox can be an incredible and natural-looking solution for wrinkles and that dermal fillers are invaluable when it comes to reversing the signs of aging. From filling in deep folds around the mouth to restoring lost volume in the lips, cheeks, temples, and under the eyes, dermal fillers can take years off your face – and still allow you to look like you.
Sometimes, Botox and filler aren’t enough. Whether it’s a result of dramatic weight loss or simply just getting older, there are patients who lack the structure, support, and volume in their face that’s necessary for fillers to make a desired difference in their appearance. These patients need a “framework” to which Hyaluronic Acid fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, etc.) can be layered on top. This is where Sculptra comes in, Sculptra helps create this framework.
What Areas can be treated with Sculptra?
Sunken cheeks and temples are by far the most common areas treated as evidence of the image of the aging face below. However, many patients see great benefits from Sculptra when injected in the chin and the jawline too. Even more, many women are choosing to reverse the signs of aging on their chests by having Sculptra injected in their chest wrinkles and folds. In addition to the above the neck uses of Sculptra it is also used below the belt for the Non-Surgical Brazilian Butt Lift and Cellulite Reduction treatments.
How Sculptra Works.
Who is a good candidate for this treatment?
If you have concerns about hollowness and/or loss of volume due to aging, weight loss, or facial lipoatrophy you’re most likely a candidate for Sculptra. While most Sculptra patients are middle-aged, men and women as young as their 20’s have experienced success from treatment too. A consultation is required prior to treatment to be sure that Sculptra is the right treatment for you.
When will I see my results?
Results are not immediate. Results generally take 4-6 months, depending upon a variety of factors, like volume loss and age. Patients will continue seeing changes through the 9th month, and at that time full results are expected.
Sculptra is not for patients who need instant gratification. But if you can be patient, the results are absolutely worth the wait. Just ask any Sculptra patient or check out some before and after photos and you’ll see for yourself
What is the downtime?
There is no actual “downtime.” It’s an out-patient treatment that takes about an hour to perform. When finished, most patients feel that they can go on about their normal day activities. Like dermal fillers, you can experience some swelling at the injection sites that will generally subside in less than a week. Mild to moderate bruising can be a common side effect along with tenderness, itching, and redness.
