What Is Sculptra?

Sculptra® Aesthetic is composed of microparticles of Poly-L-lactic Acid, a biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic polymer from the alpha-hydroxy-acid family. It’s the synthetic form of lactic acid, which is naturally occurring in our body. If you are frustrated by signs of facial aging, such as wrinkles or a loss of volume, Sculptra achieves long-term rejuvenation.

How Does Sculptra Work?

Sculptra® is injected in the area(s) of concern by a medical professional. Once injected, the ploy-L-lactic acid is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen by working within your body’s dermis to help restore skin’s inner structure.

The microparticles of PLLA help to stimulate collagen production. As the collagen production is being rebuilt strands of collagen act as scaffolding to gradually restore facial volume and fill wrinkles and fine lines for a long-term support system. The number of injection areas and appointments varies for each patient, depending on how much collagen is needing to be restored. On average, three injection appointments are needed over a period of a few months for optimal results.

How Much Does Sculptra Aesthetic Cost?

There are several factors that figure into how much treatment will cost, including:

Since injection costs will vary from person to person, the best way to determine projected costs is to visit with your doctor. Average total treatment package costs can vary, depending on many factors, including those listed below.

  • Number of treatment sessions needed
  • Number of Sculptra Aesthetic vials used per session
  • Degree of necessary correction determined by you and your specialist
  • Specialist fees
  • Discounts and special offers
  • Geographic market

Comparing the cost of facial rejuvenation options can be challenging, because so much depends on desired results, the amount of product your doctor recommends, your response to treatment and the amount of time results last. A facial filler treatment that lasts up to three to six months may cost less upfront than one that lasts much longer, but it will generally require additional treatment sessions to maintain the effect for the same duration as one longer-lasting treatment. You may want to consider the total cost over time.
