As we age, our bodies collagen production decreases, resulting in wrinkles and sagging. Sculptra® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that gradually replaces lost collagen. Sculptra® stimulates collagen production, resulting in firmer, younger-looking skin. Since Sculptra® stimulates collagen, results are not immediately visible after treatment but will improve over time.

Sculptra® can be used on the face, chest, and other parts of the body. It is recommended to have at least 2-3 sessions, spaced approximately six weeks apart, in order to achieve maximum rejuvenation. The results of Sculptra® can last between two and three years.

Sculptra® is an injectable treatment designed to replace collagen gradually. It also thickens, tightens, and restores volume to the skin. The results of Sculptra® take longer to show than those of hyaluronic acid fillers. In the first few days after using Sculptra®, there will be a natural filling effect, followed by a decrease in volume. Collagen is produced by the body over time, thus restoring lost volume.

Sculptra® stimulates your body to produce its own collagen, so this process typically takes about six weeks.

The results of Sculptra® will be noticeable gradually and lasts for two to three years.

After Sculptra® treatment, there is no downtime required. There is the possibility of bruising after injections, but bruises usually resolve within a few days. It is recommended that you do not exercise for 24 hours after injections.
