Sculptra is a cosmetic dermal filler that is injected below the skin. Sculptra is very effective in treating lines, folds and wrinkles, but it also has a unique quality. The minute Sculptra is injected into the body, it begins to stimulate the formation of new collagen, increasing skin volume and filling in lines and wrinkles. For this reason Sculptra is often used in delivering the non-surgical facelift or “liquid face lift.”
At Scottsdale Skin Institute we are known for our superb liquid facelift results, administering some of the best Sculptra Scottsdale has available. We look forward to helping you turn back the hands of time and restore that youthful glow.
Any patient showing the signs of aging is a good candidate for Sculptra treatment. Sculptra candidates commonly seek treatment for smile lines, marionette lines, and other facial wrinkles and lines. Sculptra is also used as an alternative to surgery, providing augmentation and enhancement to a patient’s nose, cheeks, or chin.
Sculptra can be used to address most areas of the face, including:
- Hollow cheeks
- Softening boney cheekbones
- Nasolabial folds
- Hollow chin area
- Jawline contouring
- Hollow temples
- Loss of volume in hands

One of the reasons Sculptra is so popular is that it can last up to 2 years in most patients. This ends up being more cost effective for most patients, as there is no need for multiple treatments. One maintenance treatment per year is recommended to ensure the results are properly preserved. It generally takes 45-90 days after the treatment to see the full results. This is because your body is building its own collagen over time. The final product is a rejuvenated, vibrant, more youthful appearance.
Risks and Side Effects
There is very little risk associated with the use of Sculptra. As there are no animal by-products in Sculptra, there are little to no chances of an allergic reaction. As with any dermal filler, some patients experience temporary bruising or swelling at the injection site immediately following the procedure. However, this typically subsides within 48 hours, leaving you with a beautiful, natural looking appearance.
