What is Scultra?
Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid, which produces subtle results over a period of time. This filler is usually administered in a series of three or four sessions, replacing lost collagen for a smoother, younger look. Results of Sculptra may last more than 2 years for some patients. It is primarily used in the following areas:
Nasolabial Folds – creases that appear from the nose to the corner of the mouth
Chin Lines – vertical lines that appear on the chin below the lower lip
Marionette Lines – lines that run from the corners of the mouth to the chin
"Dr. Jeffrey Olson is the best there is. I’ve been to a lot of there types of Doctors and Dr. Olson really stands out. He is a gifted magician of a doctor, and he never goes overboard. He also gives about the most gentle shot I’ve ever had, and I have a horrific phobia of needles. His office is low key, relaxed and lovely. And he is a calming force of nature. I recommend him to all my friends and my wife is also a patient of his, and loves him as well."- M.D. / Yelp / Mar 14, 2019
"Dr. Olson is truly an artist when it comes to Botox injections. I have gotten Botox from several different doctors over the years, but no one has been able to make me look so young and refreshed without making my face look frozen or altered. Highly recommend!!"- Z.T. / Yelp / Mar 14, 2019

"I’m highly aware of Dr. Jeffrey Olson’s results as an aesthetic Physician. I’ve witnessed his ability to instill a refreshed and healthy rejuvenation to faces, while leaving the character that is intrinsic to the patient.As a theatre director in Los Angles, I’m sadly used to seeing actors come through casting sessions who’s faces I no longer recognize. Actors who have succumbed to over-selling by a doctor’s ambition all in order to look young. The result is almost always the opposite. They simply look ’worked-over’. But actors who’ve been lucky enough to work with Dr. Olson, I notice only the fact they look as though they’ve just returned from a restful vacation, and several years younger. Naturally. Although I’ve not yet personally taken advantage of the Dr’s other facial sculpting treatments, I did become a Kybella patient for reducing chin and jawline fat. I’m very happy I did so. After 5 treatments I noticed a tremendous difference in my jaw line. Also witnessed by my before and after treatment photos. Rick S"- R.S. / Yelp / Feb 19, 2018
"I positively adore Dr. Olson. Not only is he an artist when it comes to �, he is also a delightful conversationalist and an all around stellar human being. ���"- Z.T. / Facebook / Dec 04, 2017
Frequently Asked Questions
How Is Sculptra Different in Action?
As opposed to traditional fillers which have an immediate effect, Sculptra acts by stimulating collagen production over time, leading to a gradual and natural effect of restoring the underlying skin structure. Because of the large amount of diluent injected, appearance immediately after injection can predict outcome and appearance after the course of several treatments.
Any Special Concerns?
There is a <1% chance of nodule formation due to collagen formation. It is usually only palpable, not visible, which can be treated if persistent.
Patients with a history of keloid or hypertrophic scar formation may not be candidates for this procedure.
