What is Sculptra?
Loss of volume happens during the natural aging process, particularly in the mid-face, as the cheeks tend to become flat and hollow. Our aesthetic team at Seven Heart Medspa uses Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid injectable dermal filler that allows for longer-lasting and deeper volume in the cheeks. In addition to increasing the volume of the mid-face, Sculptra can reduce the look of shallow to deep wrinkles and lines, like the nasolabial folds (also called smile or laugh lines) that go from the edges of the nose down to the outer corners of the mouth. With a unique formula approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Sculptra encourages the natural production of collagen in your body, so even after you stop injections, your skin should be stronger and healthier compared to before Sculptra treatments.

"I can't say enough positive things about Catja, she's truly a gem. I've been seeing her for about a year now and she's the only person I trust with my face. I initially went to see her to help me with my "gummy smile" and the work she did was natural, yet a huge transformation for me. She's professional, educated, experienced, gentle, genuine, and will keep you looking natural, symmetrical, and improved. I highly recommend her for anything she does, especially filler and facials."- A.H. / Google / Oct 22, 2021
Who is a Candidate for Sculptra?
Sculptra is ideal for patients who want to improve contour in their cheeks without implants and surgery. Some candidates may have been born with flat cheeks, whereas others have full cheeks that deflated with age. Sculptra dermal filler can also help treat shallow to deep facial wrinkles and lines, including chin wrinkles, marionette lines, and nasolabial folds. Since Sculptra's formula works to boost the body's natural production of collagen in the skin, many patients will see a visible improvement in the appearance and overall health of their complexion.
How does Sculptra Work?
Following your consultation to develop your personal treatment plan, you will receive your Sculptra injections in our procedure rooms. Your injector may apply a local anesthetic or numbing cream prior to cleansing and marking the areas to be injected. As soon as you are ready, Sculptra is injected into the deeper skin layers at the chosen sites. For best results, our team may suggest a series of four injections, each done at Seven Heart Medspa about three weeks apart.
What can I Expect after sculptra?
After your treatment, you may have mild to moderate swelling, redness, tenderness, or bruising at the injection areas that should subside naturally in a few days. For faster healing, you may apply a cold compress to the injected areas. You should limit UV exposure as much as possible after your appointment and always use sun protection. Many patients will see improvements immediately after their Sculptra treatment, with complete results appearing after several months, as the increased collagen production improves the health of the complexion. If Sculptra is performed in a series over 3 – 4 months, a patient's results can be visible for up to two years.
How much does Sculptra cost?
Sculptra injections can vary in price based on how many units are needed to achieve your goals. Some patients may also need a series of treatments for the optimal outcome. In your initial consultation, your injector will discuss your concerns and tailor a treatment plan for your specific budget.
How does Sculptra work?
Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator. It can help to rejuvenate the skin’s inner structure and appearance as more collagen is formed. The rebuilt strands of collagen will visibly fill out lines, wrinkles, and folds.
Are Sculptra injections safe?
Sculptra is approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), and it has a long history of safety worldwide since 1999. Side effects are usually mild and temporary, but some patients experience slight pain, redness, swelling, and bruising. Occasionally, small bumps may appear when pressure is applied to the injected area. Contact us if you experience any concerns about side effects that are abnormal or last too long.
What is the best age to receive Sculptra?
Treatment with Sculptra can help if you want to improve the appearance of wrinkles. It is often used to fill chin wrinkles, fine lines surrounding the mouth, and deep lines between the nose and mouth. The most common age to receive Sculptra injections is between ages 30 – 55; however, Sculptra can be used on most patients, as long as they are over the age of 18 years old.
How long do results last?
To make the results last longer, some patients might need to receive multiple Sculptra injections. Compared to other dermal fillers, Sculptra lasts longer; the results usually last up to two years. Since Sculptra continues to increase the natural production of collagen in your skin, results may take time to appear.
