Sculptra in Charlotte

Glowing skin starts within. Sculptra is a biostimulatory aesthetic injectable that helps stimulate your natural collagen production to smooth facial wrinkles and improve skin tightness, revealing a refreshed-looking you.

After age 20, you lose about 1% of collagen per year. Sculptra is the first FDA-approved poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA-SCA) facial injectable that targets fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, and other signs of aging caused by collagen loss. Over time, Sculptra helps restore your skin’s structure and volume.

With results seen as early as one month after treatment and lasting up to two years, Sculptra isn’t just another filler. It triggers the body’s ability to produce new collagen at injection points, filling lines and wrinkles and replenishing volume to the cheecks, temples, jawline, nasolabial folds, and more.

Before & After

Actual patients. Results may vary.

Where Is Sculptra Effective?

  • The lines framing your mouth (parentheses and marionette lines)
  • Deep folds between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds), also called smile lines
  • Chin wrinkles
  • Temples
  • Chest lines
  • Jawline
  • Wrinkles in front of your ears

Some patients report that being injected with Sculptra feels like a pinch. Your provider may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, let your provider know and a topical numbing cream can be applied before administering your treatment.

The treatment takes approximately 15+ minutes per session and requires minimal downtime or recovery. Sculptra is injected in 3 sessions over 3-4 months for the best results, which can last up to 2 years.

Sculptra is designed to provide noticeable results that build gradually. Over the course of your 3 injections, the poly-L-lactic acid stimulates new collagen to build, which provides gradual volume replacement. Over the weeks following your injections, your results will continue to build naturally and gradually.

We recommend the following:

  • Stay upright/vertical position for 4-6 hours post-injection.
  • Refrain from any activities that may increase circulation to the area such as exercise, excess heat from sun, jacuzzis or saunas for 24 hours.
  • Over the counter medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, alive and some herbal medicines may increase the risk and/or worsen bruising. You may be instructed to avoid these medications unless prescribed by your physician. Discuss ALL current and new medications with your injector prior to treatment. You may be instructed to refrain from alcohol consumption for 24 hours. If bruising does occur you may use arnica montana as directed by your injectionist.
  • Unless otherwise instructed, do no massage/stimulate the treated area.
  • You may be asked to refrain from full body massage for 48 hours.
  • Discuss the use of Retin-A type products and chemical peels post injection with your injector.

Risks & Complications

Side effects of Scultra are similar to those with any dermal filler. These include redness, swelling, tenderness, bruising, slight bleeding, itching, and formation of small lumps. These issues should pass quickly, as poly-L-lactic acid is a biocompatible, biodegradable substance that the body accepts. But if you have any allergies, you should check with our staff prior to booking filler treatments at VociMedSpa.
