There are many options when it comes to reducing the visible signs of aging, but there is nothing quite like Sculptra.
Sculptra helps restore your youthful appearance with natural-looking and long-lasting results! Sculptra is not a quick fix. It is a unique, minimally invasive option that doesn’t give you away. It provides subtle results over time. It does so by helping to correct the shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that appear with aging by replacing lost collagen. Oh….. and did I mention….. it uses your very own platelets? How much more natural does it get than that?
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is the first facial injectable that can give you noticeable results that emerge subtly. It prompts your body to replaces lost collagen to give you a natural-looking appearance without giving you away. A full treatment of Sculptra, on average, 3–5 injection sessions over a few months, can last up to two years. This is not a solution for a hollow, major loss of volume or loose saggy skin.
How long has Sculptra been on the market?
Sculptra has been safely used worldwide since 1999, in over 150,000 patients, in more than 30 countries, primarily for cosmetic purposes, under the trade names New-Fill™ and Sculptra. In Canada, Sculptra has been approved for aesthetic medicine and reconstructive use.
How does Sculptra work?
Sculptra targets fine lines and crepey skin by using and separating your own blood platelets to create a platelet rich substance that we then inject into your dermas. Once the platelet rich substance is injected into the desired area, it irritates the area causing it to become slightly inflamed. Don’t worry, this is the reaction we want!!! Your body reacts by sending “signals” to the area for your body to start growing its own cologen. It works to target the underlying causes of the signs of aging, such as collagen loss. Sculptra is a facial injectable that works gradually in a series of treatments — an average of 3–5 injection sessions over a period of a few months — to produce a refined, youthful-looking appearance. During the course of your Sculptra treatments, collagen is replaced. Over time, you’ll notice changes to your face that can last up to 2 years.
What is Sculptra made of?
Sculptra is made of a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which works to replace lost collagen. Poly-L-lactic acid is safe – absorbed naturally by the body – and has been used for years in dissolvable stitches.

No. It targets the underlying causes of the signs of facial aging, it can give you noticeable results that emerge subtly and can last for up to 2 years. Some visible improvements can be seen within the first few weeks of treatment, but the Sculptra regimen is designed to deliver its unique effects over the course of a few months. Typically, an average of 3–5 treatment sessions over a period of a few months — and because results happen gradually, you’ll see subtle yet noticeable results in the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds.
What factors contribute to the cost of facial anti-aging treatments?
