Sculptra aesthetic fillers are a form of derma filler that is used to smooth out deep wrinkles and restore lost volume through the natural aging process. It has been FDA-approved for use on the face to reverse the loss of volume and fullness, in addition to being used for filling in and smoothing out wrinkles. Sculptra is made of a biocompatible synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, or PLLA for short, as compared to a hyaluronic acid like some other fillers. Both PLLA and hyaluronic acid will break down and be absorbed by the body over time, so they are naturally processed and eliminated.
Sculptra fillers have been shown to provide longer-lasting results than the hyaluronic acid fillers, due to the use of the poly-L-lactic acid. It not only adds volume to the face where needed, but it also stimulates collagen production deep within the dermis for the continued growth of collagen.
While it is effective for treating many areas of the face, it is not recommended to be used as a lip filler or as a filler under the eyes.
Sculptra is an FDA-approved derma filler for use on the face to add or restore volume and smooth out wrinkles. As we age, we are likely to experience some form of wrinkles and sunken or sagging skin, caused by the natural aging process. Collagen production slows down as we get older, typically starting around the age of 30, resulting in the changes to the skin that people seek out anti-aging treatment for. Sculptra not only provides volume and fullness to the skin but also stimulates collagen production under the skin’s surface.
Sculptra is formulated out of a poly-L-lactic acid solution which is a biocompatible synthetic material that naturally dissolves in the body over time. It is unlike other derma fillers that are made using a hyaluronic acid solution, as it has the added boost of causing collagen creation and growth deep within the dermis for long-lasting results. While results will vary from one person to the next, patients have reported their results lasting up to 24 months or longer, which is significantly longer than some other anti-aging treatments available.
Sculptra provides long-lasting results in the improvement and reversing of the signs of aging. It is used to create volume and fullness in the face, in people whose cheeks have become sunken, or their face has thinned due to the natural collagen loss that happens with age. As we get older, our collagen production naturally slows down, starting around the age of 30. With Sculptra, not only does it restore the lost volume, but it also works to improve the youthful appearance of the face by reviving the body’s collagen production deep in the dermis.
Sculptra works best on people who are experiencing considerable thinning of the face or loss of volume due to the natural decrease in collagen production. It is able to smooth out deep wrinkles and lines subtly and gradually, with longer-lasting results than some of the other treatments available on the market today.

Sculptra has been FDA-approved to be injected into the face where needed to restore lost volume. It is not recommended to be injected into the lips as a lip filler or under the eyes, otherwise, it is safe for use on any other part of the face. While not FDA-approved, some people have been using Sculptra on other parts of their body, including the butt and thighs for smoother, voluminous skin.
Your certified Sculptra practitioner will walk you through your treatment plan and let you know the best treatment option is, to get the results you are looking for.
