Sculptra® – New Orleans
Over time, you may notice facial skin folds and wrinkles developing, including marionette lines and nasolabial folds. A loss of subcutaneous fat can also occur with age, leading to sunken cheeks and temples. These age-related changes may cause you to look tired or gaunt, even if you feel great.
While you can’t control the aging process, you can take control of these age-related changes. Dermal fillers like Sculptra® make it easy to turn back the clock and restore a smooth, youthful appearance to your face. This FDA-approved injectable can also provide fullness to areas of the face that are lacking in volume.
When age-related changes appear, get the upper hand with Sculptra® for a fresh look that allows you to feel your best.
How Sculptra® Works
While most fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, the active ingredient in Sculptra® is synthetic poly-L-lactic acid. When used in Sculptra® treatments, this synthetic lactic acid replenishes collagen in the injected areas, which smooths out wrinkles and skin folds.
One of the main advantages of Sculptra® is that it works with your body to encourage further rejuvenation. Once injected, Sculptra® works deep within the dermis to help encourage the production of collagen. Collagen proteins are essentially the building blocks of the skin, and they help provide structure and volume. What does this mean for you? With Sculptra® working at deeper levels in the skin, you get ongoing rejuvenation at the source. Over time, this newly produced collagen will continue to support a smooth, plump skin texture.

Frequently Asked Questions about Sculptra®
Is Sculptra® better than fillers?
Sculptra® represents an advancement over traditional dermal fillers because it stimulates collagen production within the skin instead of adding volume. However, Sculptra® needs time to take effect – three to six months to become fully visible, as opposed to dermal filler injections, which provide an immediate improvement.
Sculptra® treats the cause of skin laxity, with benefits that can last two years or more.
How much does one syringe of Sculptra® cost?
In the U.S., a single Sculptra® syringe typically costs $800 to $950. The number of vials required for optimal benefits varies among patients and their desired results.
How long do Sculptra® facial benefits last?
Sculptra® results can last for more than two years. In clinical studies, 80% of respondents were still satisfied with their outcome two years after their treatment. Maintenance injections will improve your skin’s elasticity for a more youthful texture over time.
What should I avoid before Sculptra®?
Steering clear of specific things will make your recovery process smoother. For example, if you take blood thinners, you’ll need to stop using them before your appointment. Abstaining from exercise for two days after treatment can enhance your results, as will a proper post-treatment massage by your injector.
Who is a good candidate for Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is a safe and effective option for most men and women frustrated by facial volume loss. Almost any adult with noticeable wrinkles, lines, or unsightly folds is an ideal candidate because it’s minimally invasive with low risk.
When will I see full results with Sculptra®?
You may need two treatment sessions or more for best results, and you can expect to see full benefits after 18 weeks. Sculptra® will dissolve within four months, though collagen will replace it for cell and tissue support.
