Sculptra aesthetic works with your body to help rebuild lost collagen
Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen—the most common protein in the body that is used to form a framework to support cells and tissue
for results that can last more than two years.
WHAT IS SCULPTRA?
Poly-L-Lactic Acid is the chirally correct form of Lactic Acid, meaning that the body accepts it easily as it is the perfect sized molecule.
Lactic Acid is a effective AHA (alpha-hydroxy acid) and NMF (natural moisturising factor) for the skin - think plumping and revitalising your facial appearance.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Sculptra works with your body to stimulate the production of collagen which has been lost through the aging process.
Sculptra restructures, rebuilds and reinforces your skin's structural foundation, this gives the skin support and volume, providing the skin with that youthful glow.
HOW MUCH DOES SCULPTRA COST?
The cost of Sculptra depends on several factors, including:
- the amount of enhancing or correction necessary to achieve the result you are after
-the number of treatment visits required
- the location of the injections
- number of vials of Sculptra used
Sculptra is $800 per vial and an average treatments costs $1600

How soon will I see results?
Sculptra Aesthetic is designed to give you noticeable results that emerge gradually and can last more than two years. Don’t be disappointed if you don’t see immediate results. A few days after treatment, you may look as you did before treatment. This is normal and temporary. The Sculptra Aesthetic regimen delivers its full effects with an average of three treatment sessions over the course of a few months. Because results happen gradually, you’ll see subtle, yet noticeable, results in the reduction of facial wrinkles and folds by comparing images before treatment and a couple of months following treatment.
How soon after treatment can I wear makeup?
You may apply makeup several hours after treatment. Be sure to consult your Cosmetic Nurse Injector after treatment.
Is Sculptra Aesthetic safe? What are the side effects?
