Sculptra – A Revolutionary Path To Skin Rejuvenation

Sculptra, an injectable biostimulator, is a revolutionary path to skin rejuvenation. It operates by stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen and addressing the underlying cause of aging skin from loss of collagen. Unlike the immediate effects of dermal fillers, the results of Sculptra are gradual as the body will continue to make collagen for 4-6 months (sometimes even up to a year!) after each Sculptra treatment. Sculptra offers a safe and effective solution to combating skin aging through improving skin texture and skin tone, restoring volume loss, reducing fine lines, and much more.


Do you feel like your face has aged overnight?

We lose 1% of collagen each year after the age of 25. Additionally, in menopause, women lose 20% of the collagen in their skin.

Sculptra® is a biostimulator focused on collagen induction. Because this loss of collagen starts in the twenties, some women notice this collagen loss as soon as they’re in their early thirties. 

Sculptra helps stimulate natural collagen growth to help restore a more youthful appearance in the skin. This includes improving  brightness, texture, tone, and volume. To maximize anti-aging results, Sculptra is often injected over multiple sessions.

Factors determining the cost of this treatment include desired results, number of sessions required, and vials used. Each vial is $950

The Aging Process

Starting in our late teens to early 20’s, we begin to break down 1% of collagen a year more than we make. Then, in the first 5 years of menopause we break down an additional 20% of collagen! As collagen breaks down in our skin we see our skin change, losing its brightness, tightness and thickness. What this looks like is dull, thin, sagging skin that shows discoloration, fine lines, and volume loss.

Sculptra is injected into the areas of collagen loss stimulating the body to make some of this collagen back resulting in brighter, thicker, tighter skin. Furthermore, additional treatments of sculptra can help restore volume loss along with continuing to tighten and brighten the skin.

Longevity of results vary from patient to patient as each of our bodies respond to making collagen differently. Also, we continue to break down 1% of collagen a year despite making some back with Sculptra treatments. Studies show that Sculptra results can last up to 25 months, however, we suggest maintaining Sculptra treatments annually so as to not return to where you started from.

How Sculptra Works

Intriguingly, the mechanism behind this innovative cosmetic treatment involves a process that stimulates the body’s intrinsic ability to produce collagen.

Sculptra utilizes poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biostimulator, to instigate natural collagen synthesis within dermal layers. As PLLA particles are slowly absorbed by tissues, fibroblasts are triggered to generate new collagen fibers. This gradual and controlled response contributes significantly towards patient satisfaction as it leads to subtle yet progressive changes in skin quality and volume.

The recovery time after Sculptra treatment is typically short with only mild post-procedure symptoms such as swelling or bruising which quickly subside, thus further enhancing its attractiveness as a path to skin rejuvenation.

Post Care

After Sculptra injection, specific massage techniques are recommended. The patient is required to massage the treated area for five minutes, five times a day for five days. This helps distribute the product evenly within the tissue and stimulate collagen production. Furthermore, it minimizes potential formation of nodules or lumps.

Common side effects of Sculptra treatment typically encompass mild soreness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site, in addition to possible lumps and discoloration. These are generally temporary and resolve within a few days.

Patients can resume daily activities immediately after the procedure, although some may experience slight discomfort or swelling that subsides within a week.

Amaris and Michelle are both wonderful! I received Sculptra and Disport from Amaris and I absolutely love the results! My skin is glowing! She is kind and professional and made me feel comfortable with the procedure. I would definitely recommend IAM!



I have seen both Michelle and Amaris and have had nothing but positive experiences and consistent results. They both have exceptional bedside manner and expertise on all services provided. I especially love their emphasis on collagen rejuvenation and skin health. My skin is much more youthful and bright thanks to their lasers, prp facials, and sculptra treatments. Highly recommend.
