Sculptra® is a unique dermal filler that restores collagen to add long-lasting volume to the skin and facial features.
Why Use Sculptra® Aesthetic?
Sculptra® Aesthetic is a different kind of dermal filler used in the mid-face. While other dermal fillers like Juvéderm® and Restylane® use hyaluronic acid (HA) to restore lost facial volume, Sculptra® works using poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) in Sculptra® stimulates natural collagen production deep down. Over a series of Sculptra® treatment in our clinic, the collagen grown restores the scaffolding beneath the skin for a more youthful look. Sculptra® can be used alone or together with HA fillers. Sculptra® Aesthetic results last up two years.

What Happens During Your Sculptra® Consultation?
At Pure 111, we offer personalized consultations for every patient. This personal time together with your new provider allows us to work together to determine the best treatments for you. We will: discuss your concerns, goals, and expectations; go over your medical and health history; do a thorough examination; and confirm the medications and supplements you take.
If we determine that Sculptra® Aesthetic is right for you, we will provide you with pre-treatment instructions to prepare and ensure the best results from your Sculptra® procedure. It’s very important that you follow these instructions to the letter to reduce unwanted side-effects.
What To Expect During Your Sculptra® Treatment?
Prior to your Sculptra® treatment, we will numb the mid-face with a topical anesthetic and/or cold therapy. Your provider will apply it along your cheekbones and just above and/or below. Once you’re nice and numb, it’s time to get to work. We will inject Sculptra® deep into the dermis where you’ll get the most benefit from the procedure.
We will provide you with post-treatment instructions and schedule you for future appointments where we will monitor your progress and perform repeated Sculptra® injections.
After Your Sculptra® Treatment
There is virtually no downtime with Sculptra® Aesthetic. You may experience some swelling and bruising, but these symptoms will subside over the next couple of days. Over time and a series of treatments, your body will regrow collagen in response to the PLLA. Your lines and wrinkles will diminish in appearance and youthful facial fullness will be restored. We may also recommend a little HA filler as a finishing touch.
Results are typically seen within 4-6 weeks and can last for up to two years with Sculptra® Aesthetic.
