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

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.
