  • What is Sculptra?

    Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen—the most common protein in the body that is used to form a framework to support cells and tissue—for results that can last up to two years.

  • Why Sculptra?

    Sculptra helps to address the underlying cause of facial aging and not just the symptoms! Although there are other antiaging treatments, they are not the same and cannot tackle the issue from within.

  • What is Sculptra made of?

    Sculptra is made with biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments administered by a trained specialist.

  • What should I expect from my treatment?

    One of NHMA providers will inject Sculptra into the appropriate dermal plane where strands of collagen support your skin's structure. Over time, Sculptra helps the body reproduce lost collagen. The number of injection appointments and the number of injections per appointment vary from person to person, depending on how much collagen has been lost. On average, three injection appointments are needed over a period of a few months.
