What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is a uniquely formulated facial filler that serves as an injectable collagen stimulator.  This treatment contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a long-lasting facial volumizing agent.  PLLA is a component of absorbable sutures, and manufactured in a powder form, which is mixed with water, allowed to reconstitute, and then injected.   As the body breaks down the PLLA particles, your body replaces it with collagen over the next 4-6 weeks, to provide shape and restore volume to the injected areas long after the initial injection.  As an added bonus, skin tightening and smoothing is generally observed as well. This one-of-a-kind filler produces incredibly natural-looking and long-lasting results. Studies have demonstrated that the results last up to two years, and yearly touch-up injections are typically performed to maintain the collagen-stimulating benefits of this treatment. 

What Areas of the Face Does Sculptra Rejuvenate?

Sculptra can enhance and rejuvenate several areas of the face in a single session Dr. Indeyeva commonly uses this injectable to treat the following areas:

  • Temples
  • Cheeks
  • Chin (marionette lines)
  • Nasolabial folds (lines between nose and mouth)
  • Jawline

Sculptra is not used in the lips or near the eyelids. If you are seeking non-surgical lip augmentation or tear-trough augmentation, we will recommend an alternative dermal filler that is better suited for the delicate skin in these areas.

Sculptra can also be paired with other injectables, such as Dysport, Restylane Kysse, Restylane-L, and others for a combination treatment approach.

Patients generally notice volume changes immediately after treatment, because Sculptra is mixed with water.  However, these changes will revert to baseline in approximately 2 days, as the water is resorbed.  However, as the PLLA particles begin to stimulate collagen production in the deep skin layers, facial volume will begin to increase in the same areas gradually and continuously, so that results will be noticeable 6-8 weeks after each Sculptra treatment.  

Cosmetic injectables are an ideal option for slowing and reversing many common signs of aging. That said, they are not a lasting alternative to facial plastic surgery performed by a fellowship-trained plastic surgeon like Dr. Indeyeva.
