What is Sculptra® Used For?

Sculptra® can be a great non-surgical option for those with nasolabial folds, marionette lines, or other areas of the turkey neck. At Manhattan Aesthetics, we offer Sculptra® to treat some prevalent concerns. It’s one of our top treatments, particularly for candidates that are hoping to look younger.

What is Sculptra®?

Sculptra® is a popular treatment that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and folds on the face. Dr. Alan J. Tannenberg created it in 1990, and it has been approved for use in many countries around the world since then. 

Sculptra® injections consist of poly-L-lactic acid, which stimulates your skin’s natural collagen production, leading to smoother skin with fewer wrinkles and folds over time and increased elasticity and thickness. The treatments can also increase your lip volume by about 20%.

Unlike other fillers such as collagen or fat, Sculptra® can be injected selectively into deep lines around the mouth and nose to create a more natural look.

Furthermore, adding volume to the face also helps counter any wrinkles or fine lines. In essence, they get filled in and smoothed out by the dermal filler, giving your face a much more youthful appearance

Where Can Sculptra® Treatments be Applied?

Sculptra® is primarily used around the face to diminish facial wrinkles and treat small lines and other wrinkles around the nose and mouth and chin wrinkles. It is used primarily on the face, neck, chest, and chin areas. However, Sculptra® is not suitable for use on the eyes or lips.

This treatment provides a long-lasting alternative to surgery for restoring facial volume and contour. The collagen in Sculptra® improves the health of your skin.
