Can Sculptra Be Injected Above the Top Lip?

I would not recommend using Sculptra for the upper lip. There are other products, like Juvederm and Restylane that can be used for that area.
Sculptra for Lip Lines
Sculptra for lip lines
There are other preferred methods to treating lip lines which can be employed together or individually depending on the severity and cause of your lines.
Sculptra for fine upper lip lines?
Sculptra is really not appropriate for the upper lip. Try Botox or Restylane for upper lip fine lines, you will be happy. Alternately I would recommend fractional CO2 (such as Fraxel...) or if the lines are deeper traditional CO2 resurfacing. The recovery from fractional CO2 is relatively quick and easy.
Best of luck!
Sculptra Aesthetic is specifically not to be used in either the lips or lids
Can Sculptra be injected to smooth fine upper lip lines?
Upper lip lines can be very nicely reduced with a few units of Botox and if needed either Restylane or Juvederm. Alternatively, you can have them resurfaced, but personally, I never liked the swelling, pinkness etc that followed resurfacing of this area.
As regards Sculptra, it is meant to fill in large areas such as the cheeks. Although suppose it could be used in the upper lip, it may be associated with pouty over sexualized or worse, duck lips, so I would not use it there.
