Collagen is a key structural component under the skin that provides volume, keeping skin looking youthful. Over time, our bodies make less collagen and our skin loses its elasticity and volume. This, along with environmental factors like sun exposure, lead to the appearance of wrinkles, lines and folds.

Anti-aging creams containing collagen cannot get below the surface of the skin to replace lost collagen. But, Sculptra can.

Sculptra works deep under the skin to naturally stimulate the body to produce its own collagen. As lost collagen is replaced, Sculptra gradually increases or restores volume to correct your wrinkles and folds. Over a series of treatments, your new youthful look emerges, so it is subtle and natural-looking. Plus, results can last over 2 years.*


There are many options when it comes to reducing the visible signs of aging, but Sculptra is different.

Sculptra is a minimally invasive treatment that helps to gradually restore your youthful appearance with natural-looking and long-lasting results.* Sculptra is not a quick fix – it provides subtle results over time.


Sculptra targets one of the underlying causes of facial aging: the loss of collagen. Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), the main component of Sculptra, begins to work within the deep dermis (underlying skin) to gradually replace lost collagen. PLLA is biocompatible and biodegradable (absorbed naturally by the body).


Sculptra gradually replaces lost collagen – for a youthful, natural look.


  • Helps correct skin depressions, such as skin creases, wrinkles, folds and scars, to combat skin aging.
  • Is suitable for large volume corrections of the signs of facial fat loss (lipoatrophy).

Treatment effects differ from person to person. Touch-ups may be needed to maintain the desired effect. Your doctor will discuss the right treatment plan based on your needs.

    • Immediately following a Sculptra injection, redness, swelling and/or bruising may occur at the injection site. These typically resolve in hours to one week after the injection.
    • Injection-related swelling typically resolves within several hours to a few days.
    • Patients treated with anticoagulants may run the risk of hematoma (blood spot under the skin) or localized bleeding at the injection site.
    • Small papules (solid bumps) in the treatment area may occur. These subcutaneous (beneath the skin) papules are typically not visible and may be noticed only upon pressing on the treatment area. Visible nodules (small rounded lumps) or areas of induration have been noted in the injection area and are occasionally associated with inflammation or discolouration.
    • Other reported adverse reactions include: injection site abscess, injection site infection including cellulitis (facial), staphylococcal infection, local infection, granuloma formation, allergic reaction, injection site urticaria, injection site swelling, skin hypertrophy and injection site atrophy, hypersensitivity, angioedema, telangiectasias, skin sarcoidosis.
    • Scarring and skin discolouration have also been reported.

    Your doctor will provide you with aftercare instructions that may help minimize side effects. Aftercare may include massaging to evenly distribute the product and icing the treated area to reduce swelling and/or bruising. Do not apply ice directly to the skin. Learn more about aftercare.

  • Sculptra should only be administered by a trained doctor. To find a Sculptra-trained doctor near you, click here.

    • Sculptra should not be used in any person who has hypersensitivity to any of the components of the product.
    • Use of Sculptra in any person with active skin inflammation or infection in or near the treatment area should be deferred until the inflammatory or infectious process has been controlled.
    • There are several precautions that are important to discuss with your healthcare practitioner prior to treatment. Inform your healthcare practitioner if you have any of the following:

      • If you are using anticoagulants as you may run the risk of a hematoma or localized bleeding at the injection site.
      • If you have a known history of or susceptibility to keloid formation or hypertrophic scarring.
      • If a laser treatment, chemical peel or any other procedure based on active dermal response is performed before or after the treatment. There is a possible risk of eliciting an inflammatory reaction at the implant site.
    • Injection procedure reactions to Sculptra have been observed consisting mainly of hematoma, bruising, edema, discomfort, inflammation, erythema, transient bleeding from an area the size of the point of the needle or transient pain, localized redness at the injection site and ecchymosis. The most common device-related adverse effect was the delayed occurrence of subcutaneous papules, which were confined to the injection site and were typically palpable, asymptomatic and non-visible.
    • Rare but serious adverse events associated with the intravascular injection of soft tissue fillers in the face have been reported and include temporary or permanent vision impairment, blindness, cerebral ischemia or cerebral hemorrhage, leading to stroke, skin necrosis, and damage to underlying facial structures. You should discuss the potential treatment risks with your healthcare professional so you are aware of signs and symptoms of potential complications.
    • After the treatment, minimize the exposure of the treated area to excessive sun and avoid UV lamp exposure until any initial swelling and redness have resolved.
    • Product should only be administered by trained healthcare professionals.
    • This product has not been tested in pregnant or breastfeeding women.
    • Not for use in children under 18 years of age.
    • Injection-related adverse events such as bruising, erythema, itching, swelling, pain and tenderness may occur. These side effects generally resolve spontaneously within one week after injection. Other potential side effects can occur with dermal filler injections. You should discuss the potential treatment risks with your healthcare professional.
    • Discuss all potential risks with your healthcare practitioner prior to treatment. This is only a partial list of safety information.
