How long will Sculptra last?

Does this replace using Botox?
Although the two products work in different ways, Sculptra does significantly reduce the amount of Botox needed for full correction.

Multiple factors unique to each patient can determine how many vials are needed to treat a given area. Due to this, price can vary by treatment area and amount needed for full correction.  The most common pricing is $700-$1,000/vial.  



What are the most popular treated areas?
Sculptra is most commonly used in the cheek area; however, an experienced physician can have amazing results treating the jawline to lift the face & neck, forehead to lift brow or temples for overall eye improvement. In fact, Sculptra in the right hands can be used wherever necessary to restore one’s entire face to a youthful appearance. This is why it is often referred to as a Liquid Lift.


Are there any adverse side effects?
As with any cosmetic treatment, there can be temporary bruising and puffiness which can often be avoided with appropriate pre-care procedures but will regardless be cleared in a matter of days. There are no known allergic reactions and most patients return to work or play immediately after treatment.

"...very pleased with the results. The look is very natural and the onset of the enhancement was very gradual so nobody really noticed I'd "had work" done. Love the look, love the result..."

"...More importantly, the one administering it is a M.D. I do not think I could trust anyone that was not a doctor injecting anything in my face. It took about 2 hours for her to inject the Sculptra. She was awesome about questions and educating me. She wanted to make sure I was comfortable with the procedure. I also like the fact that Med Spa Plus and Dr. C herself are not pushy sales people. She is able to tell you why things are they way they are and why these changes happen and just doesn't hype products to sell you. I choose Sculptra on my own after she explained all options that could work for my face and the results I was hoping to see..." My rating: 5 stars

“My family doctor commented during a recent visit how much more rested I looked since he last saw me.  Thank you again for reassuring me that it’s never too late to improve your appearance.”

“I have completed 5 treatments with you … I have a few experiences I would like to share.  One night my husband decided we’ll take the kids out for dinner.  I immediately headed for the bedroom to do my makeup.  My husband stopped me and asked where I was going.  I said, “I’m going to put my makeup on.”  He looked dumbfounded.  These next words will ring in my heart forever.  He said … “I didn’t realize you don’t have any makeup on.”  Now that’s huge! … I love what have done and are doing for me.”
