Sculptra® is a biocompatible and biodegradable injectable material that stimulates the body to produce its own natural collagen.


  • Stimulates the growth of new collagen under the skin
  • Increases skin thickness and skin radiance
  • Subtle and gradual facial volume enhancement over time

How it works

Sculptra® particles stimulate collagen production over a period of months in volume deficient areas. Sculptra is particularly effective for volume loss in the temples and in front of the ears.

What to expect

The Sculptra® treatment takes less than one hour and most patients report minimal discomfort with the procedure. As with any injectable procedure, bruising is always a possibility.

When to resume normal activities

You may resume all normal activities after a Sculptra® treatment.


The Sculptra® collagen stimulation process occurs over 3 to 6 months. You may repeat the Sculptra® treatment every 2-3 months until the desired result is achieved.

Recommended sessions

Once you have the volume you desire, we recommend that you have treatment approximately every 1-2 years to maintain results.

Possible downtime

  • Possible swelling in or around the injection site
  • Possible bruising

Post treatment care

  • Massage treated areas for 5 minutes, 5 times a day for 5 days to avoid any lumps
