Does Sculptra cause bone formation and bone growth?
Doctor Answers 8
Sculptra does not cause bone growth or formation. Once injected it causes a localized inflammatory response, with a capsule forming around each molecule as it is metabolized. This results in increased collagen production and an increase in dermal (skin) thickness, helping increase volume. The results with this filler improves with time.
Hope this helps,

Sculptra Stimulates your own collagen
Sculptra does not cause bone growth. Sculptra stimulates your won collagen to produce and is one of my favorite injections. It gives volume and restores collagen and helps with sagging skin. It is great because it will last more than two years after injection. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green

Thank you for your question. Sculptra is a
poly-L-lactic acid collagen stimulator so it therefore helps to stimulate
collagen formation, not bone. The way I like to describe the mechanism behind
Sculptra is that it helps to build collagen “scaffolding” within the deep
dermis which helps build up volume. The typical treatment protocol is three
treatments over three to four months, repeating this every two years. The
volume around your cheek area will build which will create a fuller appearance.
If you want more information on Sculptra, I would recommend seeing a board
certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
