Sculptra Overview

  • Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable dermal filler (poly-L-lactic acid, or PLLA) originally designed to combat facial fat loss (lipoatrophy) in people with HIV.
  • Sculptra was later approved for general use to volumize upper cheeks, temple areas, and deep wrinkles and folds. It is marketed as Sculptra Aesthetic.
  • Sculptra acts to stimulate collagen formation, which results in a gradual thickening of the skin. The treatment typically runs three or four sessions, each 4-6 weeks apart. Results of the treatment 
  • Side effects reported by RealSelf community members include lumps, bumps, granulomas, bruising, and other injection site-related irritation. 
  • Sculptra is not intended for injection in the areas around the eyes or in the lips.
