It's a great option for men and women seeking a subtle improvement rather than an immediate change. A Sculptra treatment with our Dallas dermatologists typically requires 3 injections over the course of several months. With each injection, results develop further, and your final look can last for more than 2 years.

About Sculptra Aesthetic
As we age, our skin produces less collagen, which contributes to sagging, wrinkles, and a loss of elasticity. The active ingredient in Sculptra Aesthetic, poly-L-lactic acid, encourages collagen production by providing a support structure for collagen to grow. The growth of new collagen isn't an overnight process, and each of our Sculptra patients typically requires a series of 3 injections — but the wait is worth it. Over time, Sculptra restores supple volume to lines, wrinkles, and hollow areas. Eventually, the poly-L-lactic acid is naturally metabolized by the body, leaving behind naturally occurring collagen.
Poly-L-lactic acid is the same ingredient used in dissolvable stitches, so the safety of Sculptra Aesthetic is well established. It is FDA approved and has been used around the world since 1999.
What It Treats
Sculptra is appropriate for most facial lines, wrinkles, and folds of various depths, but it creates the best results on the following areas:
- Hollow areas of the cheeks and temples
- By building collagen, you can also see lifting along the jawline and softening of the nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
- Chin wrinkles
There's minimal downtime following a treatment with Sculptra Aesthetic, but some patients report injection site reactions including redness, tenderness, swelling, or bumps. These are generally mild and short-lived. During your consultation, our doctors work with you to determine whether Sculptra Aesthetic is the right approach to meet your cosmetic goals.
Sculptra may be used on its own or along with other dermal fillers at our Dallas, TX practice.
