Scupltra for all skin types

Yes!  Sculptra can be used on any skin type. Sculptra is a filler that stimulates your body's own collagen to add volume and fill hollows and wrinkles. It is usually performed in 2-3 sessions about 6-8 weeks apart.

Sculptra for all skin types

Yes, Sculptra is effective in patients of all skin types and color.  As we age, we experience a decrease in facial volume.  Sculptra is a great way to restore this lost volume.

Sculptra For All Skin Types

Sculptra is a long lasting soft tissue injectable that triggers the body to produce its own collagen to fill lines and wrinkles and restore facial volume. As we age, our skin thins, and we lose fat and bone volume in our faces. Sculptra is a synthetic substance, used commonly in dissolvable stitches, and has been used safely for soft tissue injection in thousands of patients of all skin types. Sculptra is excellent for younger patients that feel that they are looking hollow, and older patients that would like to regain the voluptuousness of youth, regardless of their skin color.

Sculptra for all skin types

     In my practice I routinely treat patients with all types of skin with Sculptra Aesthetic. With aging, we all experience thinning of our skin, muscles, bones, and fatty tissue in our face. Sculptra Aesthetic helps to provide a structural support and revolumize our face, which is reduced with the natural aging process.


All the best,

Sculptra for skin of color

Yes, sculptra is appropriate for patients of varied skin types. So having darker skin color is not a contraindication to having sculptra injection. Good luck.
