Sculptra Overview

Sculptra is an injectable originally designed to combat facial fat loss (lipoatrophy) in people with HIV. Under the name Sculptra Aesthetic, it was later approved for general use to add volume to upper cheeks, temple areas, and deep wrinkles and folds. It is not, however, intended for injection in the areas around the eyes or in the lips.

Sculptra stimulates the creation of collagen, resulting in a gradual thickening of the skin. Treatment typically requires two or four sessions with about a month between each treatment. Results may last up to four years.

One of Dr. Justin Harper's master injectors explains Sculptra.
