What is Sculptra?
Lost volume occurs as a result of the natural aging process. This is especially apparent in the face as the cheeks tend to become hollow and flat. To address this, our experienced team of medical injectors provides Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid injectable dermal filler that creates fuller, longer-lasting volume in the mid-face. In addition to increasing the volume of the mid-face, Sculptra can reduce the look of fine to deep wrinkles and lines, like the nasolabial folds (sometimes called laugh or smile lines) that go from the edges of the nose down to the outer corners of the lips. With a unique gel formula approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Sculptra encourages the natural collagen production in your body. This means that your complexion will be stronger and healthier compared to before your treatments even after you stop receiving injections. Schedule a consultation at Body+Beauty Lab in Philadelphia, PA or Radnor, PA to discover the advantages of this innovative dermal filler.

"Highly recommend! The service was excellent. Jennifer Romania was super friendly, personable, and accommodating, and she took the time to listen to my needs/concerns. I will certainly be back!"- M.B. / Google / Jun 17, 2022
"I had a filler treatment done to enhance and contour the masculine features of my face and light Botox where fine lines were starting. This was a new experience for me so I was a little nervous, but as soon as I was sitting in the room consulting with Naomi I was very relaxed. She is a very professional and confident nurse injector. I was happy with results immediately. I am at the 48 hour mark since and I am absolutely obsessed. The results aren’t dramatic but I can see a night and day difference which is exactly what I wanted. I feel very good about myself and am looking forward to taking selfies this summer"- M.F. / Google / Jun 14, 2022
"I scheduled two minor procedures (a little Botox and a little filler) with Anya Bado and it was a fantastic experience. She was knowledgeable, explained everything in detail, the procedures were easy and painless AND the best part, the results. I would highly recommend this facility and Anya for their great service, professionalism and ease in navigating these sort of procedures. A 10/10!!!"- E.O. / Google / Jun 09, 2022

Who is an Ideal Candidate for sculptra?
Sculptra Aesthetic is great for anyone who wants to improve contour in their mid-face without implants and surgery. Candidates for this injectable may have been born with hollow cheeks, whereas other clients could have full cheeks that have deflated with age. These injections can also improve fine to severe facial wrinkles and lines, including chin wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. Since Sculptra's formula works to prompt the natural production of collagen in the skin, most Sculptra patients will notice an improvement in the appearance and health of their complexion.
How does sculptra work?
After your unique plan for treatment has been developed, you will receive your injections in one of our procedure rooms. Your injector can use a local anesthetic or numbing cream for added comfort. Then, they will sterilize and mark the sites to be injected. As soon as you are prepared, Sculptra is distributed down to the deeper skin layers at the chosen areas of the face. For longer-lasting results, our office performs a series of four treatments that are completed at Body+Beauty Lab around three weeks apart.
What can i Expect after sculptra?
Following your appointment, you may experience mild or moderate swelling, redness, bruising, or tenderness at the injection areas. However, this should resolve on its own after several days. To encourage healing, you may apply a cold compress to the injected areas. You should limit UV exposure after your appointment and be sure to always use sunscreen. Many clients will notice clear improvements immediately following their appointment with final results being noticed after a few months when the increased collagen production has improved the quality of your complexion. If Sculptra is performed in a series over 3 – 4 months, a patient's results may be visible for as long as two years.
How much does Sculptra cost?
Dermal fillers, like Sculptra, can vary in price, depending on how much product is used to achieve your desired results. You may need several treatments to get your best outcomes. During your consultation, your injector will ask about your concerns and develop a treatment plan that addresses them. From there, we will be able to estimate your costs and discuss payment options. We encourage patients to ask about our VIP membership program, which will entitle you to receive exclusive offers on select services provided by our office.
How does Sculptra work?
The main ingredient in Sculptra, poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), works within the dermis of the skin to help stimulate the production of collagen. Sculptra helps to rejuvenate your skin’s strength and appearance as more collagen is produced. This additional supply will visibly fill out lines, wrinkles, and folds.
Are Sculptra injections safe?
In addition to being approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Sculptra has been used around the world safely since the late 1990s. Side effects are usually mild and temporary, but some patients experience minor pain, swelling, redness, and bruising. Occasionally, a bump may develop if too much pressure is put on the treated area. Call us if you have any concerns about side effects that are abnormal or last too long.
What is the best age to receive Sculptra?
A dermal filler, like Sculptra, can be a good choice if you want to improve the visibility of wrinkles. It is often used to fill wrinkles on the chin, fine lines around the lips, and the deeper lines between the mouth and nose (nasolabial folds). On average, patients start to get Sculptra anywhere from their early 30s to their late 50s. However, this injectable can be safely used on most men and women who are over the age of 18.
How long do results last?
Compared to other dermal fillers, Sculptra lasts longer, and your results may remain for as long as two years. Since collagen production continues to increase after your treatment has concluded, your fullest outcomes will take some time to appear, but it will be well worth the wait. To make your results last longer, you might want to schedule multiple injections over a period of time.
