What Is Sculptra® Aesthetic?
Sculptra addresses the underlying cause of aging, not just the symptoms. Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen — an underlying cause of facial aging — for results that can last more than two years.*

If you want to appear more youthful-looking — without appearing like you’ve had work done — then chances are Sculptra Aesthetic may be a good choice for you.
Sculptra® Aesthetic works subtly and gradually over time for a more youthful-looking appearance. Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Sculptra Aesthetic helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost to aging. Sculptra Aesthetic is intended for use in people with healthy immune systems as a one-time treatment regimen of up to four injection sessions that are scheduled about three weeks apart.

How Does Sculptra® Aesthetic Work?
SCULPTRA AESTHETIC HELPS STIMULATE NATURAL COLLAGEN PRODUCTION
- Contains microparticles of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which is created from sugarcane
- Once absorbed by the skin, PLLA attracts and stimulates new collagen growth
- Results typically last 2-4X longer than hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers
Sculptra® Aesthetic Is Different From HA Fillers
THERE ARE 2 “STYLES” TO CHOOSE FROM WHEN REPLACING VOLUME:
Classical structure that lasts (like a sculpture), or flexible expression that makes a statement (like a painting)
