Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that's used to treat mild to severe facial wrinkles. Unlike other injectables that fill wrinkles, Sculptra is made from a poly-L-lactic acid that stimulates the body's natural production of collagen over time. The treatment typically involves three injection sessions over the course of three to four months, and results can last for up to two years. LEARN MORE ›

I looked 28 after leaving Dr. Shino Bay's office - Fort Lauderdale, FL

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

I Had Good Results - Birmingham, AL

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

Lumps then More Lumps, Swelling, Pain and Inflammation - Alabama

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

Sculptra - It's All About the Doctor Who Does It - Larchmont Village, CA

Cons - none really, except some swelling that takes a good 5 or so days to go down. No one noticed until I pointed it out, but I was aware of it and wouldn't do it less than a week before I had to do anything special. Pros - it's so subtle no one notices except you. It also last much... READ MORE

Horrible Experience - I wish I would have seen this website prior to getting my Sculptra injections. - Bakersfield, CA

I wish I would have seen this website prior to getting my Sculptra injections. I had injections done under both eyes. First in November 2007 and again in January 2008. After the first injection, I developed a pea sized lump under my left eye. My dermatologist told me it would go away. I had the... READ MORE

Worth It! - Rome, GA

As to pain, it for sure hurt. I've had botox, Ultra Light Therapy, Microdermabrasion, and 3 root canals with crowns, and this hurt the most! But next time, I'll insist on a Lortab before the treatment, if my doctor will do it. I will see. If not, I'll still endure it. I've... READ MORE

From Cynic to Believer - Los Angeles, CA

{edited} {by Britt user asked to fix misspellings} Like most women who are at the crux of baby boomer land where you start to disappear (meaning no one notices you much anymore), I wasn’t ready to give up and get in the rocker. My appearance was always something I sort of relied on... READ MORE

Very Painful and Bruised for a Month - La Jolla, CA

No one ever informs you of the true cost or pain involved. Many shots in my temple, chin & nose areas. Thought I was having a root canal and the shots became so painful I tried to get out of my chair but they would not let me. I said to stop: "it is too painful", but the doctor just said, "I...

Young at Heart and Now on Face - Boca Raton

My dr. used Scultra to add fulless to the volume loss I had from aging. I have used other fillers as well as Botox and this was a great xcombination as it works over the course of time, promoting collagen. It has made a big difference. The important thing to remeber is that it is not just the... READ MORE

Sculptra Caused a Lump Under my Eye

My cosmetic dermatologist is a superb injector. She is the best of the best. I have no choice but to blame the product itself, Sculptra, for the lump that formed under my left eye. According to the PI sheet, about 1 in 5 patients develop lumps. I thought I could beat those odds by having a good... READ MORE

53 Year Old Seeking Relief from the Gaunt, Tired Look in my Face. - Spokane, WA

People telling me I look gaunt and thin in my face, which gives me a tired an unwell look. Consult with Dr. Chesnut indicated Sculptra could, over time, fill out my face and temples. Alternative to a face life, which I am not ready to do. I have had two treatments to date. Some small... READ MORE

Superb Results!

I've had Dysport and Botox over the years. At 44 I feel so much better about myself after seeing Dr. Smith. He took time, examined me, listened to my concerns and made suggestions. He recommended Sculptra. All I can say is TRUST HIM. Talented and compassionate is an understatement. I love my... READ MORE
