What is Sculptra?

Transform your skin with Sculptra!

This groundbreaking injectable treatment uses Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) to encourage the natural production of collagen, helping you achieve a more youthful and smoother complexion.

What can Sculptra do?

Sculptra can significantly improve the quality of life for those seeking to address age-related skin concerns or enhance their overall appearance. By stimulating collagen production, it achieves noticeable yet natural-looking results without surgery or lengthy recovery times. Some benefits of Sculptra:

  • Firmer skin
  • Reduced wrinkles and fine lines
  • Enhanced facial volume
  • Improved skin texture
  • Non-surgical treatment
  • Gradual, natural-looking results
  • Long-lasting effects

Am I a candidate for Sculptra?

  • Moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds or marionette lines.
  • Volume loss in the cheeks or temples leading to a hollow or aged appearance.
  • Skin laxity, especially in the jowls and jawline.
  • Candidates should be in good overall health, with realistic expectations of the treatment outcomes.

Consultation and Preparation

Our Vero Beach Sculptra providers will provide a thorough assessment when you consult with us for treatment.

We’ll review your medical history, learn about any worries or concerns you may have, and assess your skin’s condition before discussing your desired results. You’ll be given detailed information regarding potential benefits, risks, and expected outcomes to make an informed decision regarding whether this is right for you. Afterward, we’ll create a personalized plan tailored specifically to address your aesthetic goals!

We will give you some best practices you can follow to get the most out of your treatment. This could include abstaining from certain medications or supplements that can increase bruising and bleeding risks. The day of the procedure should be dedicated to ensuring the skin is free of any makeup, lotions, or other skincare products.


Before your treatment with Sculptra Vero Beach patients may have a numbing agent or local anesthesia applied to ensure the patient’s comfort during the treatment. The medical professional will then carefully inject Sculptra into the predetermined treatment areas using a fine needle or cannula. The practitioner may also massage the treated areas to ensure an even distribution of the product. The length of the procedure depends on the size of the treatment area and the desired results but typically takes between 30 minutes to an hour.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

Sculptra produces natural-looking results, and it may take several weeks to months for the full effects to become apparent. Post-treatment life is relatively uncomplicated, with minimal downtime and disruption of daily activities.

Most patients can return to normal activities within a day or two of the treatment, although some mild swelling or bruising may occur. For the first few days after the treatment, avoid excessive sun exposure, strenuous exercise, and alcoholic beverages to minimize the risk of complications and promote healing. Although the injections typically don’t require incision care, it’s essential to keep the treated areas clean and avoid touching or scratching the injection sites to prevent infection or irritation. Sculptra results can last up to two years or more, depending on individual factors. However, some patients may require additional touch-up treatments or follow-up sessions to maintain their desired results.
