Sculptra is the only FDA-approved poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) facial injectable treatment that helps stimulate the skin’s own natural collagen production. It works gradually to help restore your skin’s inner structure to smooth facial wrinkles, such as smile lines, for a more youthful-looking appearance.

As we age, we lose collagen, which acts as the skin’s support structure and helps maintain its shape. In fact, 70% of our skin is composed of collagen, and collagen loss causes the skin to lose its elasticity and moisture.
Sculptra helps treat an underlying cause of facial aging—the loss of collagen. By helping stimulate your own natural collagen growth, Sculptra gradually adds volume that lifts the soft tissues and plumps skin from within.
*Individual results and treatment regimens may vary. Clinical trial ended at 96 weeks (2 years).
The most common side effects after initial treatment include injection site swelling, tenderness, redness, pain, bruising, bleeding, itching and lumps.
Once injected Sculptra begins working with your body deep within the skin to help stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production over time, helping to reinforce the skin’s inner structure and increase facial fullness that has been lost due to aging.
Avoid direct, excessive sun exposure or tanning one month prior to treatment.
On average, a series of 3 treatment sessions over the course of a few months may be needed. The number of injections at each session will vary depending on the degree of correction needed and the treatment plan determined by you and your specialist.
Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biodegradable substance that has been proven safe and has been used in medical products, including dissolvable sutures, for more than 30 years.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is an FDA-approved facial injectable treatment on the market that helps boost the skin’s own natural collagen production to retore its inner structure. It also provides long-lasting results – more than two years.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is different from hyaluronic acid fillers because it helps treat underlying cause of volume loss- the reduction of collagen.
Sculptra® Aesthetic works deep within the skin’s surface and is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body to help stimulate collagen production, reinforcing the skin’s inner structure.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is a key to unlocking a more youthful-looking appearance because it helps restore facial volume and improve the look of the nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines, pre-auricular wrinkles (the vertical wrinkles in front of the ears), radial cheek folds (vertical wrinkles on the lower cheek) and chin wrinkles.
For facial correction we typically see that one (1) vial of Sculptra® is needed per decade of life.
For example if you are 40 years old, we would recommend four (4) vials of Sculptra® to achieve desired results.

Botox is an FDA-approved purified protein that is injected into targeted muscles in the face. It temporarily blocks nerve signals that cause muscle movements — essentially relaxing the muscle — which reduces or eliminates fine lines and wrinkles.
The Morpheus8 microneedle uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to stimulate collagen production at the deepest layers of the skin. By doing so, the skin’s collagen-building blocks will rebuild themselves through a natural anti-aging process to tighten the skin and minimize fine lines & wrinkles.
