An FDA-approved injectable, Sculptra fills shallow facial lines with small beads made of polylactic acid. As the beads naturally break down, the body may produce more collagen, leading to long-term skincare effects. Typical results last at least two years. LEARN MORE ›

ABOUT ME: I am 51 and have had sculpture twice before with a derm in another state. After doing some research here, I decided on him based upon his credentials and reviews. PROCEDURE: There's lots of punctures, so if you bruise easily, prepare for downtime. I asked him to insert needles via... READ MORE

The basis of my antiaging regime has always been & will always be a diet of organic wholefoods with plenty of healthy natural fats & very few strarchy/carby foods & grains, regular yoga & exercise- particularly strength training (but not over the top gym junkie stuff), plenty of good quality...

I'm 47 and have always been thin. Within the last 3 years have noticed that my face seems to be melting away! Everything is starting to slide south.

BACKGROUND Many years ago I lost a lot of cheekbone form the left side of my face due to a really nasty abscess. About 18 months ago, as I'd been warned, I noticed that side of my face was looking sunken & I had some "ripples" appearing on that cheek. The other side of my face is fine so I was... READ MORE

Pain was tolerable a 4 , much less so than I thought it would be. HOwever, the aftermath is what hurt most, Massaging my sore swollen... READ MORE

I am a 72 year old woman and it was suggested by my dermatologist that I try Sculptra for the lines on my chin and the hollows of my cheeks. I had three injections over four months.It was very discouraging because I did not see any results. I thought I had just thrown $2400 down the drain. It... READ MORE

I am over much older than 28! My skin was losing elasticity and hollowing was beginning to happen. Dr. Shino Bay's technique of placing the product underneath the muscle was ingenious! I could not believe that I look 28 again after leaving his office :) it was the best day of my life and now... READ MORE

Must list price by vial. I have had 2 sessions. 2 vials per session. so $500 per vial. Supposed to go one more time may be 1 or 2 more vials. I have never had a treatment like this before. No botox etc. Found it to be quite painful but you can get through it. I bruised alot. More the first time.... READ MORE

I have tried fillers and botox/dysport and good results with both. I am 57 and not ready for a face lift, so I tried Sculptra. I have had only one treatment, but I definitely think that I look better. I did freak out after having the treatment, after reading others experiences, but my experience... READ MORE

I got Sculptra Nov 2011, I had immediate lumps, that I was told would go down, then I got a parotid gland infection one month later. No lumps went down, but swelling did. I now have many lumps coming up and they are tender and you can see them in certain light, but most people dont see them. THe... READ MORE

I just finished my second Sculptra session. About eight weeks after my first treatment I did notice a difference. I had it injected primarily in my temple region...but also cheeks and jawline. My face feels firmer...not like it's hanging off my face. Al tho I have had botox and Juvederm as... READ MORE
