What to Expect With Sculptra
Being a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, Sculptra is unique. Sculptra is used in a series of regular sessions to gradually volumize and resculpt facial contours over the course of several months. Whereas other fillers are best for smoothing out wrinkles, removing lines in the face, and providing lip volume without the need for surgery – Sculptra® actually stimulates your body. By working deep within your body in the depth of your skin’s dermis, rather than the surface, Sculptra treatments help to revitalize collagen production and return your skin’s inner structure and volume.
Over the course of three months after injection, your jaw-dropping results will come to life and the results are remarkably natural. A series of 2-4 sessions, spaced 6-8 weeks apart are typically needed for most patients who are the best candidates for Sculptra.
It can range from $500.00 – $800.00 per syringe depending on the product.

Everyone is different; the doctor will help determine how much product is necessary to achieve your desired results.
You do run the risk of slight bruising at the injection site; we recommend that you discontinue the use of non prescription blood thinners before and after injection. There may also be some mild swelling that can last 2-7 days.
