What is Sculptra®?

Sculptra® is a FDA-approved facial injectable that adds volume to correct shallow to deep nasolabial folds (smile lines), lines framing your mouth (marionette lines), chin wrinkle and other facial wrinkles. 

 

How does Sculptra® work?

Sculptra® works by replacing lost collagen, restoring volume and redefining lines.  Facial collagen loss is a key factor in the aging appearance.  Collagen acts to support structure for the skin, provides overall volume and gives shapes to your face.  When Sculptra® is injected into the skin it adds volume and smooths away wrinkles. As the product is absorbed a collagen framework is provided to gradually restore volume loss, which results in smoothing out of shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds for a more refined appearance.

 

Is Sculptra® right for me?

To find out if Sculptra® is for you, schedule a consultation with one of our Facial Plastic Surgeons and together you can decide on a treatment plan. 

 

Be sure to tell your physician about all of your medical conditions and all medications (including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and especially if you:
