Sculptra is an injectable that stimulates collagen production and restores a firmer, more supple quality to aging skin. Sculptra is used to smooth skin and reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles by gradually restoring lost collagen in your skin, treating the underlying cause of facial aging.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is formulated with poly-L-lactic acid or PLLA, a biocompatible and biodegradable compound that promotes the production of new collagen in your skin. As an injectable collagen stimulator, it goes a step beyond topical collagen treatments by stimulating collagen production deep within the dermal layers. After a series of treatments, you’ll notice the treated areas becoming firmer, and wrinkles and facial creases diminishing. Sculptra treatment areas include the following:
- Around the nose and mouth
- Cheeks and temples
- Chin and jawline
- Along the chest area or décolletage

When should I expect to see the results?
Results will develop over four to six months after a course of treatments. On average most patients require three treatments with Sculptra over a few months for optimal results.
With Sculptra, results are not immediate, because your body is stimulated to produce more collagen, resulting in outcomes that are subtle and natural as they develop over time.

When under the care of Dr. Sedgh, you will feel comfortable, cared for, and you will understand every aspect of your upcoming treatment, whether surgical or non-surgical.
