What is the mechanism of action of Sculptra?

Sculptra is a dermal filler injected into the skin to smooth out face creases. It contains PLLA, a collagen activator that aids in the progressive restoration of fullness to face creases and folds. While you may see rapid benefits, it may take many months to see the full effect of Sculptra treatment.

Dr. Alhallak will work with you to determine the number of treatment sessions that are optimum for you. In general, this treatment can be repeated every four to six months.

Sculptra treatment

At your initial meeting, Dr. Alhallak will collect your full medical history, including any medical diseases or allergies.

On the day of your initial Sculptra treatment, we will map and cleanse the injection sites on your skin. Moreover, to alleviate discomfort, we will apply a lidocaine gel and leave it on for 15 minutes. You should be able to resume your normal activities shortly after therapy. Dr. Kamal will communicate any special instructions to you.
