Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable treatment made of poly-L-lactic acid that stimulates your skin’s natural collagen production over time. This results in improved skin texture and elasticity, as well as a reduction in facial wrinkles and folds.

Before and After Photos
Why Choose Sculptra?
Sculptra is a non-surgical, minimally-invasive treatment that, unlike other dermal fillers, can last up to two years. It is also safe and effective for all skin types.Request A Consultation
To ensure a comfortable, pain-free experience, Dr. Shapiro will mix Sculptra with lidocaine (a local anesthetic medication). Then using a soft-tipped cannula, he will gently introduce the product under the skin which significantly reduces the risk of bruising.
Immediately after the treatment, you may notice some improvement in your skin’s appearance but that will subside over the next few days.
The real volumizing effect of Sculptra will develop gradually over several weeks. Most patients require 2-3 treatment sessions spaced about 4-6 weeks apart for optimal results.Book a Consultation
What areas are best treated with Sculptra?
Dr. Shapiro uses this product for patients with mid-face volume loss in order to create more volume and look more youthful. Sculptra can also be used for the temples, smile lines, cheekbone augmentation as well as for volume loss around the mouth and chin.
Is the Sculptra procedure painful?
With Dr. Shapiro, Sculptra is a PAIN-FREE procedure as he prepares the product mixed with lidocaine which is a local anesthetic. Also, Dr. Shapiro uses a soft-tipped, thin flexible micro cannula which reduces or prevents the risk of major bruising or bleeding.
How long does it take for Sculptra to work?
Since Sculptra stimulates collagen production, it requires weeks to start that process. Most patients require 2-3 sessions, spaced 6-8 weeks apart in order to reach their aesthetic goals.
