Sculptra® is a dermal filler and effective volumizer used to treat the loss of facial volume that occurs with age. It works by restoring the volume of the fatty tissue and bony structure of the face using microscopic particles of poly-L-lactic acid. Poly-L-lactic acid is a biodegradable, synthetic material. When injected, Sculptra® stimulates collagen production to create a thicker collagen matrix in the deeper layers of the skin. It is ideal for adding volume to sunken cheeks and temporal hollows. Sculptra® is often used in combination with Botox® and other neuromodulators. At Revenge MD, we often use Sculptra® to fill acne scars and we use it combination with laser treatments to create the best results for you.

HOW DOES SCULPTRA® WORK?
Sculptra® treatments involve slowly injecting the filler into the targeted area by one of our board-certified dermatologists. They create a three-dimensional effect to restore a naturally younger looking and aesthetically pleasing appearance. For most people, two to three treatments performed six to eight weeks apart are recommended to achieve the desired look. To ensure patients remain relaxed during the treatments, local anesthesia is used on patients when necessary.
