Turn back the clock with Sculptra – a facial injectable treatment that targets the underlying cause of aging. Sculptra works with your body to stimulate collagen production and rebuild your skin’s structural foundation. Sculptra is a facial reshaping, long lasting, collagen stimulating filler that works gradually to reshape and contour the face, promoting a younger, and more vibrant appearance. Sculptra is subtle, natural, and will leave you looking more youthful and more refreshed.
We naturally start to lose collagen in our 20’s and 30’s and as we continue to age, collagen continues to diminish, leaving us with volume loss and sagging of the skin. Sculptra is injected into hollowed areas to create volume and to firm up the skin and improve wrinkles. Sculptra activates your skin’s natural ability to revitalize collagen production to increase overall facial volume, and to provide you with a more youthful appearance.
Sculptra is made of poly-L-lactic acid, a very safe and biodegradable FDA approved compound that has been used in a wide range of medical devices, including dissolvable sutures, for more than 30 years. It has been safely used for facial augmentation in over 150,000 patients in over 30 countries since 1999.

Sculptra is an injectable treatment that typically requires several sessions performed over a few months, with results lasting for about 2 years or longer. Sculptra works naturally with your body to stimulate your own natural collagen production over time. The results of the treatment are gradual, and you will see results within 2 weeks, with optimal results around 2 months post treatment. At Westport Dermatology, we inject Sculptra into the cheeks, nasolabial folds, jawline, temple, and chin area to create global volume restoration, and create facial balance and harmony.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Treatments typically take approximately 45 minutes. The doctor continuously lets the patient take a ‘look’ at the results after each area is treated to ensure that their expectations have been exceeded.
The doctor and her staff will massage the treated areas after the treatment.
The patient may leave the office feeling sore with minimal bruising if any.
Feeling quite sore over the next few days is normal. Tylenol can be taken to ease the soreness.
Minimal bruising may occur. Avoid Aspirin, NSAIDS, fish oil, vitamin E, and other supplements prior to treatment to avoid bruising.
Instructions are given at the time of your treatment for massaging the treated areas at home. We ask that you massage 5x a day, for 5 minutes, for 5 days.
On the day of your procedure, you may resume your normal daily activity. You may work-out as long as you feel up to it.
There will be a 2-week follow-up appointment after the procedure has taken place.
Do you want to take your anti-aging intervention one step further? Schedule an appointment with one of our cosmetic providers to discuss combination anti-aging treatments for overall facial rejuvenation. Aging is caused by a combination of factors, including volume loss, photodamage from sun exposure, and loss of structural support. Depending on your concerns, we can do a combination of laser treatments, skin tightening (RF Microneedling and Sofwave), and more to give you a comprehensive anti-aging treatment plan.
