Sculptra | Culver City
Sculptra is a cutting-edge cosmetic procedure that restores youth by increasing volume in areas that are shallow or have wrinkles or deep folds caused by aging. This dermal filler replenishes your skin, making you look younger and healthier in the lips, cheeks, butt, under the eyes, temples, and near the mouth.
How Does Sculptra Work?
Sculptra is a low-risk alternative treatment that utilizes the synthetic polymer, poly L lactic acid instead of using hyaluronic acid like other treatments. This polymer encourages collagen production in microscopic spheres and has been proven effective in surgeries to restore elasticity and volume to the skin. It has also been found useful in dissolving sutures and has been deemed both effective and safe in delivering long-lasting results well after the sutures are absorbed.
Sculptra restores plumpness by stimulating the production of collagen in your skin and by replenishing the structures beneath the dermis. Folds, wrinkles, creases, and shallow areas of the skin will replenish volume over time leading to fullness and enhanced shape to the treated area.
How Is Sculptra Better Than a Facelift?
When you get a facelift, you are not increasing volume in your face. Instead, excess folds of skin are cut and removed to make the face look tighter. Increasing volume with Sculptra adds symmetry to your face while lifting sagging skin and increasing plumpness near the mouth/jaw, cheeks, lips, temples, and beneath the eyes. The procedure is safe, cost-effective, and growing in popularity for its outstanding results in the face and butt area.
How Is Sculptra Better Than a Buttlift?
Sculptra is the best alternative treatment for surgery. Treatment with Sculptra is noninvasive, safe, and effective at adding shape and curvature to the butt. The procedure is relatively quick and adds structure to your skin by increasing collagen production in the affected area. By using injections, we are able to strategically add volume in the areas of concern on the patient, allowing us to naturally grow volume in the area without the pain or downtime associated with surgery!
Schedule an appointment with us to reclaim plumpness in the butt with this powerful and affordable dermal filler.
What Is the Procedure Like?
Several injections are needed for treatment by our highly trained staff of clinicians. There is zero downtime needed after the procedure however it is not unusual to experience swelling or short-lived bruises.
*You may develop papules beneath your skin however these are painless and should disappear within a few weeks.
How Long Will the Effects Last?

We suggest patients receive touch-up sessions every 18 months to two years for best outcomes however results depend on each individual.
