What is Sculptra?
As we age, volume loss starts to naturally occur, particularly in the middle of the face. This may cause the cheeks to look hollow and flat. Using Sculptra, a poly-L-lactic acid-based injectable dermal filler, we can boost volume in the mid-face. In addition to restoring the volume of the cheeks, Sculptra decreases the appearance of fine to deep wrinkles and lines, including the nasolabial folds (sometimes called laugh or smile lines) that run from the edges of the nose down to the outer corners of the mouth. With its unique gel formula approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Sculptra helps to increase the natural collagen production in your body so even after you stop injections, your skin should be stronger compared to before. Schedule an appointment at JEM Medspa in Orland Park or Elmhurst, IL to discover the advantages of this treatment.

Who is a good Candidate?
Sculptra works best for patients who want to boost contour in their cheeks without surgery. Some candidates may naturally have thin cheeks while others experience full cheeks, which deflate with age. We can also use Sculptra dermal filler to improve mild or severe facial wrinkles and lines, including the nasolabial folds, chin wrinkles, and marionette lines. Since Sculptra's formula boosts the natural production of collagen, most patients will experience noticeable improvements in the overall health and appearance of their skin.
How does Sculptra work?
During your consultation, we will develop your unique treatment plan. Usually, we can perform Sculptra injections right after your consultation. In one of our private procedure rooms, we start by cleansing your skin to remove any oils or dirt. If needed and to reduce discomfort, we can apply local anesthetic or numbing cream. Next, we will mark the treatment areas and inject Sculptra into the deeper layers of your skin. For optimal results, we suggest a series of four Sculptra injections at about three weeks apart.
What can I Expect after Sculptra?
After your appointment, you may experience mild to moderate swelling, redness, tenderness, or bruising near the treatment sites. In several days, these symptoms should naturally subside. To promote healing, you can apply cold compressions on the injection sites. After your appointment, you should avoid excess UV exposure and use sunscreen. Immediately after their treatment, many patients will see noticeable improvements. Complete results take a few months because the skin needs time to increase the production of collagen, which improves the health of the skin. If we perform a series of Sculptra injections for the next 3 – 4 months, your results may last around two years.
How much does Sculptra cost?
Treatments with Sculptra can range in price depending on how much is used to achieve your goals. Some patients may also need a series of treatments to achieve an optimal outcome. During your initial consultation, your injector will listen to your concerns and tailor a treatment plan for your aesthetic goals and budget.
How does Sculptra work?
Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator. Sculptra can help to rejuvenate your skin’s strength and volume over time as more collagen is produced. The increased collagen will effectively plump and smooth moderate to severe lines, wrinkles, and folds.
Are Sculptra injections safe?
Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Sculptra has been used safely around the world since 1999. Side effects are usually mild and temporary, but some patients experience minor pain, bruising, redness, and swelling. Sometimes, a bump may develop if pressure is applied to the injected area. Don't hesitate to get in touch with our office if you have any questions or concerns.
What is the best age to receive Sculptra?
Sculptra is beneficial for individuals who are wanting to soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It can specifically be used to improve wrinkles on the chin, fine lines surrounding the mouth, and the nasolabial folds. The most common age to receive Sculptra injections is between ages 30 – 55; however, Sculptra can be safely used on most men and women who are over the age of 18.
How long do results last?
For longer-lasting results, you may need to get multiple Sculptra treatments. A major advantage Sculptra has over other fillers is that the results can last up to two years. Since the production of collagen continues to develop over time, results may take time to appear.
