What is SculPtra?

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

What are the benefits of getting Sculptra?

Our Palm Springs, CA patients who receive Sculptra treatments enjoy many benefits, including:

  • Restored volume to areas hollowed by age or weight loss
  • Reduced appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Stimulated natural collagen development in treated areas
  • Natural-looking, long-lasting results that will boost your confidence

Am I A Candidate For Sculptra?

Sculptra is ideal for patients who want to boost volume and contour in their cheeks without surgery. Candidates may have been born with thin cheeks, whereas others experience volume loss with age. Sculptra dermal filler may also be used to treat mild to severe facial wrinkles and lines, including chin wrinkles, marionette lines, and nasolabial folds. Since Sculptra works to prompt the natural production of collagen, many patients will have a visible improvement in the appearance and overall health of their complexion that continues to improve after their last treatment session.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does Sculptra cost?
Dermal fillers like Sculptra may range in price based on how much you need to achieve your desired results. You may need multiple injections to achieve your optimal results. During your consultation, your injector will ask about your concerns and customize a treatment plan for your specific budget.

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.

What is the best age to receive Sculptra?
A dermal filler like Sculptra can be a good choice if you want to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It can specifically be used to improve wrinkles on the chin, fine lines around the lips, and the deeper lines between the mouth and nose (nasolabial folds). On average, patients start to get Sculptra anywhere from their early 30s to their late 50s. However, Sculptra can be used on most patients, as long as they are over the age of 18 years old.

How long do results last?
To make the results last longer, some patients may need to schedule multiple Sculptra injections. A major advantage Sculptra has over other fillers is that the results usually last as long as two years. Since Sculptra continues to increase the natural production of collagen in your skin, results take longer to appear, but will likely also last longer.

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.
