To give you a better idea of what Sculptra Aesthetic is, we have answered some commonly asked questions about Sculptra Aesthetics below.
What is Sculptra Aesthetics?
Sculptra Aesthetic is a cosmetic injectable that uses poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) to boost collagen production to areas of the skin that have lost collagen due to aging, sun damage, acne scars, and other skin issues. In contrast to other injectables, Sculptra Aesthetics is not a dermal filler. Rather, the poly-L-lactic acid in Sculptra Aesthetic injectables, which is a biocompatible and biodegradable substance naturally absorbed by the body, works as a biological stimulant in your body by restoring volume and lost collagen production in the treatment area.
Collagen is a protein naturally produced in our bodies that is foundational to our skin’s cellular structure, elasticity, and youthfulness. However, as our skin ages and experiences various changes from sun exposure, acne, and the like, the fibroblasts responsible for collagen production secrete fewer collagen proteins, leading to multiple signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, folds, lost volume, and skin laxity. In this way, Sculptra Aesthetic helps combat those signs of aging by boosting collagen production and rejuvenating your skin.
How long does Sculptra last?
Thanks to their unique ability to increase your body’s natural ability to produce collagen, the results of Sculptra Aesthetic injections typically last for two years or more! For the best results, most patients require an average of three sessions over a span of several months.
What are the benefits of Sculptra Aesthetics?

Who is a good candidate for Sculptra?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Sculptra Aesthetic to treat facial volume loss, as well as nasolabial folds and other facial wrinkles in individuals with healthy immune systems. As such, any adult who is experiencing volume loss, wrinkles, and fine lines in the facial area and does not have a compromised immune system or an autoimmune condition is a good candidate for Sculptra! With that being said, the safeness of Sculptra Aesthetic has not been established for individuals who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or lactating. Your Sculptra provider will make sure that you are a good candidate for this treatment at an initial consultation prior to treatment.
How often can you get Sculptra?
The general recommendation for how often you can get Sculptra Aesthetic treatments is around three to four treatments spaced approximately six to ten weeks apart. With that being said, your Sculptra provider can let you know how often you should get Sculptra Aesthetic injections, as well as the number of treatments you need, at a consultation, as the recommended frequency of getting Sculptra Aesthetic treatments ultimately varies from person to person.
