Sculptra Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen. It helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles, and folds,** that appear with aging by replacing lost collagen. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades.

How does Sculptra Aesthetic work?

Sculptra treatments are a completely different approach to wrinkles and furrows of the skin. Rather than providing an immediate correction, Sculptra is placed deep in the skin, where fibroblasts reside, and stimulate those fibroblasts to become active in producing the vital proteins of the connective tissue that provide volume, structure and elasticity to the skin. Each treatment results in a greater response, so that with repeated treatments greater and greater benefits are seen. The treatments are spaced one to six months apart, and the benefits accrue slowly over six months after each treatment, so the changes you see will be gradual and very natural.  these benefits also last the longest of any of the nonpermanet fillers, lasting for at least two years.  I have found it to provide the most natural-looking results of all the fillers.


Discover the science behind the Sculptra Aesthetic process. See how microparticles of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) — the main component of Sculptra Aesthetic — works deep within your skin to replace lost collagen and reinforce skin structure over time.

While the safety and effectiveness of Sculptra Aesthetic have not been evaluated in areas other than nasolabial wrinkles and folds in clinical trials, as is so often th case, it has been used in many thousands of patients in areas other than the nasolabial folds with wnderful results. Most experienced filler injected have in fact moved away from injecting the nasolabila furrows, since adding volume to this area can give us a simean or lips-forwardlook which is unnatural. My practice focuses on evaluating each patient's face with regard to where volume has been lost as part of the normal process of aging, and placing filler in those areas. This results in a more balanced, subtle and natural enhancement that does not change your natural facial characterists, but rather results in a somewhat more vital and younger-looking face that is still very much YOU.  In addition to treating the face, I have injected the hands and the chest, to help with aging and lwrinkles of these areas.

Here are some examples of patients who had three to four treatment sessions. Pictures were taken before, and over a period of many months, and for up to 25 months,  after the treatments began:
