Dermal fillers come in many varieties to address different concerns. An unusually versatile dermal filler, Sculptra® works on facial wrinkles, restores volume to the hands, and even lifts your buttocks. Results from Sculptra® outlast most other dermal fillers, making it an increasingly popular choice.
Sculptra® is a unique dermal filler that works by triggering the development of new, healthy collagen. Interlinked collagen proteins form the skin’s structural framework, giving it volume, strength, and firmness. By promoting collagen production, Sculptra® improves your skin’s natural tightness and elasticity.

Sculptra® uses poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) to stimulate collagen production. This biocompatible material triggers a natural process called fibroplasia, the growth of connective tissue. Some dermal fillers produce immediate results, but the body will clear them away within a year. With Sculptra®, your own cells develop the collagen, so the body will not attempt to clear it away.
You can have Sculptra® injected into many areas on the lower part of your face to smooth lines and wrinkles. However, it has other applications most dermal fillers do not offer.
Sculptra® works to treat deep lines and wrinkles all over the face, especially those around the nose, mouth, and chin. Marionette lines and nasolabial creases respond to treatment with Sculptra®, and it can also be used for chin lines and even restoring volume to hollow temples.
Hands get a lot of wear and tear, including sun exposure. This causes the skin to thin with age, making veins more visible. A boost of collagen from Sculptra® can restore a more youthful look to your hands and erase the appearance of prominent veins.
Butt lifts show no signs of declining popularity, but not everyone wants surgery to achieve an enhanced butt. A Sculptra® butt lift works with injections into the buttocks, stimulating collagen production that lifts and firms the area. Results will be more subtle than a more invasive procedure, but a Sculptra® butt lift does not require extensive recovery time.

Most people will get three to four Sculptra® treatments over a three to four-month period. You will start to see results within a month of your first treatment, and these results will continue to develop even after your last treatment. Sculptra® results can last two to three years, longer than most other dermal fillers, making the results worth the wait.
As your series of treatments progresses, you will see enhanced volume that lifts away lines and wrinkles and smoothes away visible hand veins. For those who choose a Sculptra® butt lift, you will see a subtle but noticeable lift, fullness, and roundness of your buttocks.
Sculptra® does not require any downtime. You might have some bruising or swelling after your injections, but you can return to work or resume your daily activities.
