As you age, skin displays the effects of years of sun exposure and the slow of elastin and collagen production. This creates sagging skin and hollowness that can impact the look of the face and body. This can accentuate the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity.

Sculptra is a non-surgical solution for facial hollowness; this poly-L-lactic acid filler revamps your skin while regenerating collagen in the tissue. We use Sculptra to enhance facial features and restore volume. It can also be used to rejuvenate skin of the body.

At Renaissance Dermatology & Aesthetics, Dr. Harrington, our expert injector, uses Sculptra for patients looking for a next-level filler that produces long-term results.

WHAT TO EXPECT The Sculptra Process



Before any Sculptra appointment, we always start with an in-depth consultation to assess your needs and talk through your desired results. After determining that Sculptra is the best filler for your needs, we’ll create a custom treatment plan according to your goals. This consultation is thorough to ensure the best results possible.


Sculptra Injections

For the treatment itself, we will prep your skin and mark where the injections will go. Dr. Harrington will inject a predetermined amount of Sculptra filler into the areas while keeping you relaxed and comfortable. We work to make this process as quick as possible with minimal pain.


Next Steps

You will have immediate results from Sculptra, but there may be some swelling or bruising that will subside over the next several days. We’ll go over aftercare details with you to help you achieve the best results with at-home care and schedule your next session in your series.

Frequently Asked Questions

Sculptra is unique from other filler types because instead of the typical hyaluronic acid formula, it uses a poly-L-lactic acid formula that kickstarts your body’s natural collagen production while restoring volume.

Sculptra is an injection, so you will feel a pinch of discomfort as your injector administers the treatment. We can provide topical numbing cream as needed to help minimize any pain.

You may experience some bruising, swelling, and redness at the injection site(s), but you are free to go back to work and your daily routine after your appointment. We will provide you with aftercare instructions.

The most common areas for Sculptra injections are on the face, including the temples, chin, cheeks and jawline on the face. Alternatively, Sculptra can be injected into body areas such as the buttocks for a non-surgical BBL or in the hands to restore volume.

How long a filler last largely depends on how fast your body metabolizes it as it dissolves. Sculptra is one of the most long-lasting fillers; the results can last for more than 2 years.
