Sculptra Cosmetic Dermatology in Burbank, CA

Subtle, Long-Lasting Results

As the first facial injectable that gives you subtle results over an extended period of time, Sculptra works wonders to gradually replace collagen that is lost as one ages. Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic acid, which is a biodegradable synthetic material that can help your body naturally restore lost collagen. This treatment option is perfect for those who want a natural-looking appearance because it corrects shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds subtly over time. You can experience a younger, more youthful appearance with no surgery.

Sculptra is typically used to treat areas such as:

  • Deep folds between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds/smile lines)
  • Lines framing your mouth (marionette lines)
  • Chin wrinkles
  • Volume loss in hollow areas such as the cheeks and temple

Full treatment typically averages three to four injection sessions over a period of a few months. Treatment times for each session average about 45 minutes. Many patients love this treatment because the results are subtle, gradual, and can last more than two years compared to other filler options. This means you don't have to invest additional time and money just to look good.

Common side effects immediately following treatment may include temporary swelling or redness for the first day, or bruising in some patients that will typically heal within the course of a week
