What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is the modern treatment of the facial aging process. As opposed to hyaluronic acid fillers which temporarily replace lost volume, Sculptra stimulates the body to produce new collagen. This new scaffold under the skin gradually restores fullness in the areas of lines and wrinkles. Not only does Sculptra re-volumize areas of the face, it also can improve the texture and quality of the overlying skin.
What does Sculptra treatments involve?
During the consultation, Dr. Lozada will provide a detailed facial analysis and address the areas of concern. The amount of Sculptra injections depends where each patient is on the aging curve. Older patients tend to need more vials initially than younger patients. Before the treatment Sculptra is made into a suspension with water and lidocaine (numbing medicine). This mixture is then injected using a needle or cannula into the areas of volume loss. It is possible that multiple visits over a few weeks may be required to finish the initial treatment. Once this is finished patients typically see results 4-6 weeks after treatment which continue to improve over months to years. Results can last up to 2 years which is much longer than any hyaluronic acid filler!

The effects of Sculptra can last around two years or more for some individuals, but maintenance treatments may be needed to prolong the benefits. It’s important to note that individual results can vary based on factors such as age, metabolism, lifestyle, and the specific treatment area. Regular consultations with a qualified provider can help determine the optimal treatment plan and timing for Sculptra injections to maintain the desired outcome.
When administered by a qualified and experienced medical professional, Sculptra is generally considered safe. It has been approved by regulatory authorities, such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), for the treatment of facial volume loss and wrinkles. Sculptra’s main ingredient, poly-L-lactic acid, has a long history of use in various medical applications.
Generally, a single vial of Sculptra typically costs around $900 but the cost of a Sculptra treatment can range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars per session. Since Sculptra typically requires multiple sessions for optimal results, the total cost can accumulate over time.
Sculptra is typically injected into areas of the face where volume loss and wrinkles are a concern. Common treatment areas include the cheeks, temples, nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines, and jawline. Sculptra can also be used to address other facial areas that have experienced volume depletion due to aging. The specific injection sites will be determined based on your individual needs and desired results.
Sculptra works by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production, which helps to restore volume and improve the appearance of wrinkles and folds in the skin. The main active ingredient in Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid, which is biocompatible and biodegradable. When injected into the skin, Sculptra acts as a “collagen stimulator,” triggering the body’s healing response. Over time, new collagen fibers are produced, leading to gradual and natural-looking improvements in skin texture, volume, and firmness.
