The average amount someone spends on Sculptra depends on the patient

+1

The average amount someone spends on Sculptra depends on the patient.  Typically, it takes 2 to 3 treatments with 2 vials per treatment.  But, young patients tend to spend less and older patients tend to spend more because it depends on how much hollowness you have to be corrected.  It can take 3 to 4 treatments if you’re older. Once you’ve had Sculptra and have achieved your ultimate correction, a once a year correction is probably all that will be necessary.

Sculptra Costs Vary

+1

One of the beauties of treatment with Sculptra, is that when you reached your desired end result, the effects are long-lasting, up to 2 years.  Sculptra may cost a little more up front, but then not have to be repeated as often.  The price completely depends on the amount of Sculptra used and will vary widely among patients depending largely age and degree of volume loss.  With all of that said, you will need to consult a doctor for your specific needs, as it sounds like a dermal filler may be a better solution for the lines around your mouth.

Sculptra Should not be Used Around the Mouth

+1

Sculptra should not be used for lip lines or for any areas around the mouth. Juvederm or Restylane are the best options for correcting an aging lip. They are used to replace lost volume, define the vermilion borders and create a more youthful curl, elevate and lift the corners of the mouth, and correct vertical wrinkle lines. They can restore the natural contour of the upper and lower lip and enhance the Cupid’s bow area. Please remember, your results depend upon the skill and experience of your physician injector.
