Sculptra® Aesthetic

Request Consultation
This service is available in:

Sculptra® Aesthetic is an FDA approved volumizing dermal filler that has the ability to help stimulate collagen. It is created using a bi-product called poly-L-lactic acid. Sculptra® Aesthetic is unique because it can actually work to replace lost collagen in the skin, creating a structure that helps minimize the appearance of wrinkles and folds in the skin. The structure is long-lasting, keeping your skin looking great for about two years.*

Candidates for Sculptra® Aesthetic

You may be a candidate if you would like to:

  • Fill in hollows under your eyes, your temples, cheeks, jawline and chin.
  • Restore fullness and lost volume to your face

Areas Treated

The Procedure

In order to keep you as comfortable as possible during the treatment process, local anesthesia is used. The Sculptra® Aesthetic filler is injected beneath the skin, under the dermis and subcutis layer. Sculptra® Aesthetic works in the deep dermis, providing a strong foundation to reduce the appearance of folds. The Sculptra® Aesthetic procedure itself doesn’t take very long, averaging around 15-30 minutes depending on how many areas are being treated. Depending on the severity of your wrinkles and folds, more injections may be necessary.

The Recovery and Results*

Patients who receive Sculptra® Aesthetic typically report very mild to moderate side effects. Side effects include redness, swelling, bruising, itching, and other minor issues—all of which typically clear up in 3-7 days. Dr. Lacombe can provide a quick laser treatment to reduce bruising.

Sculptra® Aesthetic works a little differently than other fillers, working over time to improve your appearance. You should see a gradual improvement in the treatment areas over time resulting in a fuller, natural looking appearance as collagen is stimulated. Typically, Sculptra® Aesthetic is injected in a series of 2 or 3 treatments two months apart. Sculptra® Aesthetic typically lasts up to two years.

Important Safety Information

Indication: Sculptra® (injectable poly-L-lactic acid) is indicated for use in people with healthy immune systems for the correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles.
Sculptra should not be used by people that are allergic to any ingredient of the product or have a history of keloid formation or hypertrophic scarring. Safety has not been established in patients who are pregnant, lactating, breastfeeding, or under 18 years of age.
Sculptra has unique injection requirements and should only be used by a trained healthcare practitioner. Contour deficiencies should not be overcorrected because they are expected to gradually improve after treatment.
Sculptra should not be injected into the blood vessels as it may cause vascular occlusion, infarction or embolic phenomena. Use at the site of skin sores, cysts, pimples, rashes, hives or infection should be postponed until healing is complete. Sculptra should not be injected into the red area (vermillion) of the lip or in the peri-orbital area.
The most common side effects after initial treatment include injection site swelling, tenderness, redness, pain, bruising, bleeding, itching and lumps. Other side effects may include small lumps under the skin that are sometimes noticeable when pressing on the treated area. Larger lumps, some with delayed onset with or without inflammation or skin discoloration, have also been reported.
Sculptra is available only through a licensed practitioner.

Roderic Wallace Trusts Dr. Victor Lacombe

“Probably one of Dr. Lacombe’s greatest assets is his intuitive understanding of what it takes to create a very natural yet aesthetically pleasing result. In my case, a brow lift opened up my eyes, a subtle lift to the tip of my drooping nose dealt with the negative effects of gravity, a small chin implant balanced a newly sculpted neck and stronger jaw line… yes, a number of procedures done at one time, but oh so worth it in the long run. I can enthusiastically endorse Victor as one of the finest plastic surgeons around.*”
