What is Sculptra

Sculptra is a facial volumizer that stimulates your body’s collagen production. This helps  your skin and soft tissues look fuller, younger, and healthier. It’s FDA approved and has been coined by some as a “Liquid Face Lift” in part due to the dramatic results it can produce.

Sculptra is an injectable gel that can be used to help restore volume in your skin. It’s made from biodegradable poly-L-lactic acid, which has been used in the body for decades and is one of the materials used to make dissolving sutures. Once injected, over time it works by stimulating collagen production in the skin and restoring some of the volumes that have been lost with age.

You don’t have to live with those unsightly lines on your face any longer! With Sculptra, you can get back some of that youthful glow without surgery or downtime.

Where is it injected?

Our providers will inject it directly into areas where you need more volume or fewer wrinkles – such as your temples, jawline, or upper cheeks – and then massage it for the first few days after treatment so it settles nicely into place. And since there’s no pre-testing required before treatments, you can go right back to work after getting treated!


The treatment sessions are spaced 6-8 weeks apart, with results lasting up to 3 years. Results are gradual and depend on the severity of the size of the problem being addressed, and the level of improvement needed. The average amount of treatments needed is 3-4 sessions to reach the desired result. It’s important for patients not only to know what they want but also how much time they have before their next event or occasion where they will need their best face forward!

You deserve to look as young and refreshed as you feel inside. With Sculptra, it’s possible to get back some of what time has taken away from your skin – without surgery or downtime.
